Handmade Gaddi Box/ Cash Gifting Box/ Cash Envelope for Weddings

 Hello there

Happy Diwali to you all. I am sharing my new project today...a gaddi box for cash gifting. Though the original purpose of this was to accommodate money bundles.....I however feel it will be an apt gift box or chocolate box. You can click here to go to the previous post where I have few more colors in this design.



I made my own pattern paper this time and it was so much fun to do that. I used Sprays and shakers from Lindy's Stamp Gang along with gold stencilling and splatters. To make these boxes, I have used 300 gsm white cardstock .The the ribbons, chipboard embellishments and most of the flowers are from Itsybitsy as well. I have gold heat embossed the chipboard embellishments using Ranger Gold embossing powder. I have also added diecut leaves using Curvy Leaves Die from Elizabeth craft designs. I did use gold foiled papers and iridescent glitter to add a lot of sparkle and shine. 


This box is big enough to hold 100 notes of INR 2000....thts a lot of money to gift someone. That is it from me today....I hope you all liked it. Thank you for visiting me and have a great week ahead.

Just Relax - Mixed Media Layout

 Hello guys

I am sharing my new mixed media layout today which is inspired by blog challenge moodboards and I am also putting up my layout at these challenges.The design and choice of words with picture is inspired the Sketch mentioned at More Than Words Challenge for August 2020 and the color scheme and theme is inspired by the moodboard at Lindy's Color Challenge.

I have used a picture of my nephew and myself....this is atleast 10 years old. Though I wanted to add another image of us building sandcastles and chilling on the Juhu Beach(Located in Mumbai, India).....he is a teenager now and wasnt comfortable with me adding his picture playing in underpants...so I zerored in on another picture where only our hands are seen and decided to use only that...but once the post is public..I am going to add the picture I earlier decided to use and give the layout to him. He is my baby...I love him.

The Lindy's moodboard inspired me to do a beachy layout and I wanted to try to use the sketch at MTW challenge because I have never done a sketch challenge before...It was super fun and took considerably less time to build the layout. 


There is a square pattern in the layout that repeats itself 3 times...I decided to replicate it using 3 small stars which symbolise starfish. Also there is circle pattern that repeats itself, also 3 times and I added melange stones at those 3 spots to represent this pattern. I think I have tried my best to replicate the pattern and also combined it with elements and pattern from the Lindy's moodboard like inclusion of stars, chickenwire, sand and 3 colors.

I started with my pattern paper from ItsyBitsy and created my own background with stencil, mediums and pastes. Then I added my colours and splatters in various places. I used a lot of dimension to build arrangement...I feel it adds depth and defination to any project. I did add sand on my image as well as on the background in various places....adds so much to the project. Once My arrangement was done, I added finishing touches and more splatters. I was tempted to add stamping but I refrained from it...just to see if I can try to make a layout with no stamps....I guess I can.

I am participating in

Whispering Love Gazebo and a Mini album/ Romantic Album - #dmccrownstage3

Hello everyone
I am sharing my project with you all. This project is my entry for #dmccrownstage3, a challenge held by Crafters Corner. I made a Gazebo to hold a tiny mini album of size 4" x 4" x 3" which has 6 interactive pop up page and a capacity to hold 30ish pics. . I have used Whispering Love paper pad sent to me by Crafters Corner.


Every page in my octogonal album is handcut (also bcoz I do not have an octogonal die.) The front is beautifully embellished with chipboards and flowers....dmc glitter, sequins and gold foiled paper. I have added many layers to add interest to my album front...but thats not it...there is something hidden on the front....you will be able to see that in the video. This album has a fun shaker spine filled with cutesy stuff...that was the first thing I made when I was working on the album and the closure is using laces and ribbons.



The Gazebo is built from the scratch and it have numerous details with I have added over couple of days. It is adorned with 7 shaker windows filled with glitter and sequins. All the shingles on the roof are handpainted and hand laid 1 by 1....the moss just adds so much drama to the roof. Apart from this the grey wall...grass..planters...flowers...there are so many pretty details. I still thought something was missing and I added lights to my gazebo as the final touch....
I have used black glitter cardstock and 3 plain cardstocks in blush pink, bright pink and olive green to compliment the colors of the paperline.I am happy to have participate in this which really got me out of my slumber and made me think creatively. I would like to thank Crafters Corner for this amazing Challenge.
Thank you so much for stopping by

Explore - Mixed Media Canvas

Hey guys
Welcome back to my blog.
Today I am sharing a new canvas that I made which is very special to me. I usually do not make dark canvas but this one is different......I had a bonsai orange tree with me since 15 years and this June...it died and I decided to make a canvas using parts of my tree. A lot of you might find it strange...but this tree was very special to me and I am going to surely miss it...a lot of memories are associated with it...it is hard to say goodbye to the things you love.

The canvas is inspired by moodboard at Mixed Media Place and More than words challenge blog. I have used Lindy's amazing sprays, squirts and shakers only shades of green and black. Here is a small clip of my project followed by few closeups.....
The top of my canvas might look teal but its actually deep bottle green and black...no matter how I click it...this is how it looks....though I must say Hockey Puck Black Magical Squirt is an amazing color...its black with so much magical mica with green undertones....love this color. 
I made my own door and lamp for this canvas as well as green foamiran flowers in various shades. To add more texture to the canvas, I used finnabair white crackle paste, paper texture paste and art stones. I created a lot of interest by adding moss, old laces, clay pieces and few chipboard pieces int he background.
I am super happy with the outcome and I hope you guys love it too....I am adding this canvas to the following blog challenges
  1. Mixed Media Place Challenge June 2020 - Moodboard
  2. More Than Words July 2020 Challenge  - Goodbye and Monochromatic - I have used only shades of green and black.
  3. Mixed Media Academy Challenge July 2020- Shades of green
