Handmade frame :)

Welcome back readers ! :)
Hope u are doing great ? I have a nice frame to share with u .
I did most of its work a while back but just sat down and gave it a few finishing touches .
I thought with my mojo gone i should just finish up the unfinished pieces.
Dont know bout u , but i just sometimes leave a piece half done when im not satisfied or just confused
and i take it out way later with a fresh mind :)
Okay so here is my frame
Well a lot of work has gone into this beautiful piece :) 
 I found this bird in the clearance section of hobby craft :D its a nice page with cut-able images :)
The bird nest is handmade. I used some brown paper twine to make it, plus a few pearls to look like eggs didn't hurt either :)
All the flowers are handmade except the blue ones .  These sprays are totally handmade and this was my first try at them. After which i did manage to get better at them :)
 This cork accent is a die cute with a sizzix die (supplies listed below.)
Love how it looks :)
 Thats the look i was going for , i really am happy with the texture.
 The dress form is a chipboard piece from Maya road. On which i have used some MME Stamps !
Hope u liked my effort
Waiting to hear your thoughts
Hugs !

Latte love - coffee card !

Hello guys !
Im back with another card that i made for the BGC blog! 
we are playing a coffee inspired challenge with some stitching !
Loved playing along :) it was superb ! 

Here is my card !
 I came up with this card with absolutely no ideas in mind 
when i heard about this challenge i was brimming with ideas but then i lost my mojo :( and i just wasnt happy with what i was making. 
But finally managed to brew this one somehow. 
Does it ever happen to you too ? losing mojo and getting all lazy , bored and depressed :/ 
Gaah hate such times. 

 I picked up some new My minds eye papers ! They are amazing ! 
love the colors and patterns they have 
its very fresh and sweet !
I have played with a few dies here mainly circles and scallops :) 

Since we had to include stitching into the coffee theme , i went and did some ribbon work on the scalloped circle. Also added some hand stitches on the heart of the coffee cup , and i realized i was out of practice , and its not very flattering :( 
so i just left it at that , i had initially decided to fully fill the heart with hand embroidery . 
After which i added some faux stitching too.
This card  was pretty simple to make :) i think i was done in about 30 mins . I took a while to tie my bow , and pick out the papers, rest was just fine. 
I haven't crafted in a few days and im hoping my mojo comes back soon.
Have a major event for which i need to prepare . 

Hugs to everyone

Lifecycle tag +Fridge magnet -3

Hi everyone !
Im back with another tag in the fridge magnet series ! 
 What do u think ? I have directly used a kraft industrial packaging to cut my tag. 
Then i added a doily there. On which i have layered all my PP 

 The Cycle is a inkadinkado mini stamp, and the sentiment is again handwritten , which shamelessly i am not at all getting better at :S 
So the tag has a magnetic sheet at the back to hold it on a metallic surface.
There it is hanging on to my wall heater :) Happy and nice !
Hope u liked it !

  • Tacky glue 
  • Rhinestones - Local
