Warm In The Spring Layout

Back after quite a long time!

Here I have used Altenew’s Reflection Scrapbook Collection to make this layout. They have put together some great watercolour inspired 12×12″ papers. Absolutely love them!

Grabbed one of the papers included in the Reflection Kit. Next, I used a spray mist by Prima Marketing ‘Lime Wedge’. Then I put together some of the cutouts that were included in the collection. I have used a sticker sheet and few die cuts. The leaves die cuts come in white so you have a choice of either colouring it or putting as it is. I actually distressed it using Mowed Lawn. I kept some parts dark and rest a bit lighter to give it a leafy look.

The flowers are by Prima Marketing and Recollections. The silver embellishment with the word ‘Blessed’ was bought from Micheals and the ‘Create’ bulb is by Prima Marketing from their section Junkyard Findings. Finally, the word ‘Memories’ is from a sticker sheet by Heidi Swapp. It went perfectly with the layout. And that is all it!

Here’s another closeup so you can see a little more details!

Until next time!

Unforgettable Moments Canvas

Hi there! Today’s Crafters’ Palette post is a multi-layered canvas. Trust me it’s super easy to make. It hardly took 45 minutes!

First, I grabbed three cardstocks and tore them up. Then I distressed them using a bunch of Distress Ink colors and used Distress Spray Stains in ‘Festive Berries’ & ‘Seedless Preserves’.

Next, I grabbed some chipboard embellishments and used Distress Paints all over them. I used ‘Antique Linen’ & ‘Black Soot’. I then cut out some butterflies using the gorgeous Winged Beauties Thinlit Dies, and distressed them in two-tone. The last step was to add some Prima flowers!

Hope you liked it! Till next time!

Vintage Apology Card


I’m back after way too long and this time I am trying to manage my schedule better than the last year. I hope it goes well! Anyway, so here I am posting my very first project for January & this is my current FAV. I liked how it turned out!

First of all, I have used Ranger Watercolor Paper. Honestly speaking if you are working with Distress Inks. You have to give them a TRY! You will definitely see a major difference between using an regular paper and a watercolor paper. Also, the one thing I liked about Ranger Watercolor Paper is that it has two sides one is smoother and other is the textured one. Here I went with the textured side, distressed it with Vintage Photo and did the edges with Black Soot. Then layered a Tim Holtz Latticework Stencil on top and inked it with Walnut Stain. Next I sprayed it with Distress Stain in Gathered Twigs. This was my first time using Spray Stains and I loved how they make the entire background pop. I absolutely love the effect!

For the metal embellishments, I chose Prima’s clock and Tim Holtz’s compass.

Leafy branches and cog are Sizzix dies. I have Distress Painted the two branches in Walnut Stain.

Top-right framelits are again from Sizzix. I have over-layered two frames. I have used black glitter sheet for the base and on the top comes the text. It has been die-cut on a plain paper which has been later distressed in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain

In the end I have glued some paper flowers in Maroon which went totally well with the vintage look. 

I hope you like it. Drop in some love in the comments below!

Mini Canvas in PINK!

Hello crafty fellows!

I hope you are enjoying your winter holidays! Today I am posting a mini canvas that was presented as Christmas gift. The lady wanted something colorful with an name initial on it and this is what I ended up with.

I have used PCW word art file in here. You can find the link HERE. The set comes with 4 different texts. I just love the chalky effect of it!

First of all, I painted the mini canvas using Distress Paint in ‘Picked Raspberry’ then I stamped the canvas using one of the Tim Holtz Anonymous Stamp. Then added few flowers, name initial and PCW word art.

I hope you like today’s post & have an amazing new year.

Configuration Box

Hello Crafty People!

I hope you’re doing fab! I am here with a Configuration Book Shadow Box. It’s a Tim Holtz Configuration Box which is about 6 x 9 x 1.25 inches and has 6 compartments.

So, firstly I covered the entire box using MME Pretty Things 6×6″ cardstock. I adore this paper pad. It’s so vintage and floraly. I simply can’t get over these papers.

The paper was 6×6″ so I overlapped two sheets and added a lace over it. Lace has been distressed by Walnut Stain Paint. Flowers are randomly picked from Prima and Recollection flowers packs.

Here comes my favorite part – THE INSIDE. Again, on the left I have overlapped two sheets covered the joined with the distressed lace. The sides of the box and edges of every cut out sheet is also distressed by the same paint.

I didn’t cover it much, as the papers were itself gorgeous. So, just added few flowers and metal embellishments here and there.

I have used PCW word art file in there. You can find the link HERE. The set comes with 4 different texts. I just love this set because it almost goes with every project I make.

Framelits dies are by Sizzix. On the left compartment, hanging metal embellishment is by Prima. I love the little crown at the bottom. On the right, I went with the mini jar with silver glitter and text in it.

I hope you like today’s post! See you next time!

Persian Times Personalized Frame

Hello to all!

This week I had great fun personalizing this Ikea frame and using PCW Word Art with it. 

First of all, I painted over the frame by Distress Paint. I used Antique Linen in here. It’s such a sober color that goes with almost any bright and bold color. As it’s a lighter tone, I decided to splash some brighter colors in form of floral embellishments. So, I went on and arranged some Prima and Recollection flowers and few leaves, butterfly and fancy frame die-cuts from Sizzix. 

I Love You Word Art as mentioned above is by PCW. You can find the file here! I absolutely loved the font! It went so well with the Sizzix die. To give it a shine and a dimensional look, I used glossy accents on top of it. And then it seemed just perfect!

I tried to keep purple has the main color so I attached a two-tone purple cardstock in the back which totally complemented purple flowers. 

Till next time Crafty Friends!
