My 2nd Word Book

This is my 2nd Word Book project that I made for my Daughter Anishka. She is 4 yrs old. So I made pages for each of the years from 0 to 4 yrs with her name ANISHKA welded at bottom. I used Design studio and Cricut various cartridges to do some Layering. I used Mickey and Friends, Happily Ever After, Dreams come true and Story book Cartridge for the numbers and name.

On each pages Layering is Done for Window on Page 1 , House on Page 2 , Minnie on Page 3 and Castle is made using Foam on the last page, Also added some heat embossing for the Dreams come true.

Mother's Day Squash Mini Book

Hello everyone! This is a Mini Squash Book I made for my mother-in-law for Mother’s day. Just a small gift for her to express my love on this very special Day. It is very well said God could not be everywhere so he made mothers and I love this day because I am a Mom too.

Well Just wanted to share what all techniques I used in this Book. Each page on the book is 4” in size. As usual my favorite is the Iris Paper Folding Flower on the front of the book. Inside I used embossing, stamping, Cricut Storybook Cartridge for some words, and heat embossing. Used Inkscape and SCAL to cut some of the designs as well. I created with Design Studio the flap panel design on the very last page, when you open the ribbon flap, there are four panels with lace patters like a window, and inside is a message. Best viewed in the video, take a look. Hope you like it!

Retirement Card

This is a Retirement Card I made for my husband's Ex-Boss. The shape of the card is of the State of Kansas, because he loved to travel all the odd places in Kansas. I made it using Inkscape and SCAL, tracing the image of the Kansas map and converting it to be cut as a card. Decorated it further with some embellishments.

Anniversary Card - Spring Card Style

Hi! I made this Anniversary Greeting Card, it is a Spring style card that I learnt from Dawn's Stamping videos. It can fit into an envelope, but when you take it out, it can stand on the table. The front of the card is 4"x4". I decorated it using my Cuttle Bug and Cricut. Also embossed the messageby Stamping and using heat embossing. Hope you like it.
