Howto - Welcoming baby card

It's the end of the bank holiday weekend here in London and the heat here has now calm down to its typical London weather. A couple of days ago, we have experienced a mini heat wave here and I have to admit I cannot take it!! Usually I am very fast at getting my tan on; but this time.... I'm in my room, doodling away with the fan blowing in my direction.

Anyhow, I've decided to stay productive by making more DIY projects; this time it's welcoming a baby into our world! What do you think of this? Aren't they cute?

Handmade products or gift for a baby is definitely and an all year round sort of thing, it is something worth getting for any proud parents out there to welcome their little ones into our world; whether it's hand knitted pair of socks, adding handmade paper craft adds a personal touch to the present making it extra special.

The above is generally what I would use to complete a craft project, however specifically for this project, I am using the following.....

Momento - Tuxedo Black

Clear Stamp block

Avery Elle Stamp set


Foam double sided tape

Embellishments for the shaker

Pearl Wand in Peach.

Spectrum Noir Marker

Since one is born every minute, I thought it will be handy to make something and perhaps show you how I've made this. If you want to see how I've made this card, please watch my video.

Thank you!

Week 1 - Summing up my week

A girl can never have too many shoes, makeup and handbags, but most importantly she can never have too many crafts in a basket! I love collecting. I am a hoarder. My bed room has now turned into an underground bedroom/studio. I don't know what it is anymore, do I sleep in here or do I do work? 
And with this addiction, I've managed to purchase some more goodness. It takes away my boredom and increase my productivity :)

I've found a home for my dear embellishments. They are going to love me for this.  

I've spent most of my time at the park this week just to get away from the heat in the house! I am going to regret for saying this, but I absolutely cannot wait for the Autumn to start. I just can't deal with the heat here in London, constant migraines, my skin is terrible, suffering from heat rash, hay fever kicking in left right and center, you name it! On a flipside, there's nothing quite like sitting underneath a tree, with a juice in one hand and a magazine in the other while the wind blows in your direction, here's hoping ideas will magically appears!

Whale you be mine?


I've decided to play around with my new stamps designed by Lawn Fawn. I love how fantastic these stamps are, so cute and for the price it's really worth it!

Although Valentine's day is nowhere near us this year, I thought it's fun to show you what I have cooked up this week using Lawn fawn's stamp set 'Whale you be mine?'.

It's definitely perfect for sending your love ones a card, birthday or perhaps to cheer someone up or prepare your Valentine's day card for next year! There's no harm on planning ahead right? 

I hope you like! :)

Welcome little one

This week card is all about the welcoming the little ones to the world! I really had lots of fun making this; especially playing around with the colour combinations. You can make this specifically for a baby boy or baby girl, but here I am using this card for both genders. 

If you want to know how I make this card, please watch the below video I've made previously in my last post. 

 The concept is the same thing, but this time I have used a much smaller card ( C6 size) and a different set of stamps from Avery Elle. 

Tomorrow's post, I will be using Lawn Fawn's stamps ( excited!!) I've seen so many posts of what artists can make out of these stamps, lots of incredible new ideas, whether it be cardm gift tags, packaging, wrapping paper and post cards! You really can use these stamps on anything! Just make sure you clean them after every use) :)

Avery Elle Stamp Set - My own creation

Good day all! I hope all are well on this fine Sunday? 

Photopolymer clear stamps are my new favourites right now! They are so easy to use, especially if you are new or existing users, they are especially great for card making project, hobonichi, bulletin journals and yes, you can do just about anything with them! You name it! 

I have recently discovered the Avery Elle brand and the stamp set are super duper cute. My current favourite has to be the ST 15 - 23 swim team set. This set has over 30 pieces! I think, I tried to physically count them but lost count along the way! :D

I have gone banana crazy and ordered a few more batch, so I really can't wait to get my hands on them. 

I have added a whale friend to my collections, this time its the new shaker card using Avery Elle's stamps! 

Product used: 

Avery Elle set
Memnto Tuxedo Black
Spectrum Noir Markers in IB2, FS8 & BT3 (Reviews on these later) 

Please stay tuned for more upcoming photos, videos and tutorials over the next few weeks! I really hope you will enjoy.
