Rain rain go away, Little Tilda wants to play

Hi all,

Another card using Tilda. This time I used Tilda in the rain as she is too cute and adorable and couldn't resist her. When the card was ready this well known nursery rhyme came to mind Rain Rain go Away, Little Tilda wants to play... So apt for her isn't it?  :)

Well here it is :


Since I totally love magnolia products I was so so happy when one of our seller mentioned that we could get the papers from her. I love love love the new collection of papers. You could get it from here and trust me she is very reliable seller :) Mangoberry

Paper - Summer Memories - lovely butterfly

Case 1 Success Story !

Hi all

Its time to celebrate the success of CASE1 - Our first paper crafting exhibition in Bangalore organized by our Indian Craft Room. Thank you ICR, Thank you Ash (the administrator of ICR) and Thank you everyone for making CASE1 happen, Not just happen but supporting us in taking ICR further by a step.



ICR is definite that most Bangaloreans are appreciative of ICR and its crafters with their attempts in bumping the hearts through paper art.

Organizers are at talks with us to take up stalls around in Bangalore. Few others who were impressed with our works are contacting us with huge orders for favor boxes, invites & love cards, as of now. A local club has even gone to an extent of inviting us to take up a space at their club for demonstrating our works along with interactive activities for their members.

Here are the CASE1 pics –

Congratulations!!

Hi all,

I am back this time with a card for a newborn. I love the soft blues and pinks but this card is for a baby boy so you probably noticed the different shades of blue :) I got a new carriage die so I thought I'd give it a try as well as I learned something new. I learned from my Facebook group how to make your own flower embellishments. I tried making one today and was very happy with the result. So I thought of using it and entering it in the challenge as well..

Here it is the full card view

Thats all for the card.

A place like Jakarta which is a tropical country where its mostly hot or rainy. Why couldn't it have more seasons.. It sure would have been nicer. Making this card just reminds me of the heat where all you want to do is eat cool stuff such as icecream !! Anyways this is what I made today....


I used bright colors to represent summer and  also what we love doing - eat ice cream :)

Here are some other views of the card.


The colorful twines and buttons and not forgetting my favorite - lace ribbon !
