Baby Girl Mini album featuring Papericious Its a Girl Pattern papers

Hello everyone.
How are you all doin? I hope great!!! So without much delay....I would like to show you my new project which is a Baby Girl Mini Album featuring Papericious Its a Girl Pattern paper. I cannot tell you how nice the papers are and I have worked with them before and I did do a lot of projects using this paper pack...Last time I teamed it with pastel pinks and whites...this time I did purples and pinks with greys....such a unique pattern paper pack and it gives you a lot of options to work with it.
Now this one is very similar in size to the earlier album. Its a big album with 8" by 8" as covers and the spine is 4 3/4" its a big one for sure. It has 5 very interactive pages with have lots of pockets, flip outs and mats.
 This album has a fair few tags and lots of journalling spots and can hold over 100 pictures on the mats and you can still tuck a few more in the nooks and crannies of this album. This album is divided into 12 sections and I have made specific monthly tags to fit those 12 special months of a baby's first year. You can also use these tags as baby onesie tags as once done you can continue to treat them as regular journalling tags. I have added a little space on the back of these tags to write about baby's monthly information. In my last album, I had made separate Box to hold the tags, but in this album all the tags are placed in the album itself.
I am putting this album up at monthly challenges at

Handmade Baby Girl Mobile using washcloth.

Hey guys
Lately, I have been doing a lot of baby themed project. I made baby mobile for my sister-in-law using washcloths when I was gifting her baby products...... So I wanted to give her in a different style. First I thought to do a bouquet of washcloths arranged like roses....well  I did that too a while ago and didn't want to repeat it. Well, My pictures are too good this time as I was in a hurry...but I still would want you all to see them.
Then it came to me....Washcloth mobile.....and it did come out as I imagined. So I would like to share few pics and a small video showing you the mobile. Initially I did for a baby girl and then I thought why not do for a boy as I will be posting very soon a baby mobile for a boy.

I am putting this project up for monthly challenges at
1  Cards and more Challenge #180 - Kids/Children - Its a baby mobile
2 Double D challenge - Things that fly - I have incorporated stars whihc are up in the sky and its a                                                                        hanging mobile.
3 Let's Craft and Create Challenge #123 - Entwined - I have used Paper twine.
4 Scrapping4fun Challenge#86- Anything goes with recycling/old stash - the wooden beads and                                                              paper twine were in my stash forever....glad I could use them.
5 Polkadoodles Crafting challenge Week 12 - Anything goes

So here there are pics as much as I could click before these beauties left my door to find a new home. Aren't those washcloth bows cute!!!!

1 Chipboard 1600gsm

4 Paper twine (You can also use ribbons, laces, jute ropes....anything you like)

6 satin ribbons

I have made this in such a way that the washcloths can be remove easily from the mobile and it wudn't damage the mobile at all. Here is the video for this project. I hope you all with watch it.

Junk Journal Cover

Hello all you wonderful people
I made something today and want to share the same with you all. I love junk journals and have been making them ever since I was 12. So as per routine, I made one for myself this year and a separate one to record my twice the fun I must say. But then I caught up with work and forgot to decorate the cover.
I am putting this up at Scrapping4fun challenge#86
I found some leisure time on my hands today and decided to decorate my journal cover with some scraps of papers lying about with me like for ever and few holographic sequins which I am sure must be atleast 10 years old......really old stash....We buy and then forget to use them. So after carefully sorting out the good ones from the spoilt ones.....I used them to decorate my
 I used scraps of papers from Papericious Color Conception paper pack which were lying with me for very long. I do not throw away anything and I have pattern paper scraps lying with me all the time. So, I made the most of it. The flowers are from scraps of cardstocks which is again something I hoard and refuse to throw away. I diecut the flowers using Sizziz dies and the leafy flourish is from Elizabeth Craft Designs Leafy Branch 2.

Did some matting and added details in the center. I added some old sequins and splatters of white paint to bring everything together.
Simple and quick. I did this is 30 mins...and I am super happy with the result. I hope you all like it as much as I do.
Thank you for reading this post and have a great week ahead.
