Puppets from Plastic Bottles

I am so sorry for having been absent for so long but I have been focusing on sharing a lot of stuff on facebook and have been super bad about my blog 😦 One of my resolutions for the new year is definitely going to be focused on rectifying this!

Upcycled Shrinky Dinks

I am so excited about the experiment I carried out last night! I had some bakery biscuit plastic boxes lying around and had read on the internet that some people has been able to use the plastic to make their own shrinky dinks. I had long wanted to try this out and so I did.

I am working on detailed tutorials so that y’all can join in the upcycling fun, but till then I wanted to share some pictures.

Planning the perfect Craft Staycation Part 4

Day 2 of my craft staycation was loads of fun too! I made loads and loads of birthday cards, some victorian paper shows, scrapbook layouts and an idea jar to wrap the vacation up!

I started with the cards. I wanted to use all my paper scraps and left over embellishments that had been getting pushed to the back of my crafting pile. I pulled out all those scraps and stickers and embellishments, gathered a few blank cards and got to work. I came up with 12 birthday cards and loved making each and every one of them. I specially enjoyed using some ‘thank you’ cards that I had Continue reading

Planning the perfect Craft Staycation Part 2

Next up we will look at gathering relevant tools, materials and coming up with a playlist J. Music is very important for the soul, especially the creative soul and I make sure I always have some on in the background while I am crafting.

Since we already have a staycation program ready, all we have to do is go over the program and make a list of all the tools and materials we will need.

Since all my projects are mostly paper projects here are the tools and materials that I had assembled on my work table:

  • My diecutting machine complete with all dies and embossing folders
  • A few favourite stamps (I think narrowing the choice down helps one to craft, otherwise I sit for hours trying to figure out which stamp will look best. Making this decision before really helps!)Request Feedback Continue reading

How to plan the perfect craft staycation

I have spent all day working on the perfect schedule for my craft staycation. As mentioned in my previous blog post, the first step is to actually make a list of all the projects that you wish to make during your staycation and to estimate the amount of time they will take. I am extremely fond of all sort of papercraft. From scrapbooking and altered art to mixed media and mini books. This is why my craft
