Dear Friends

Today I present you a lovely memorabilia photo frame, aptly named “MOMENTS”. The frame can be a lovely keepsake and your companion making you remember those special moments of your loved ones. You can hang it in your living room or your bed room, also enhancing the ambience of the place.

The “Moments” is made using new Papericious pattern paper “Naturals” which contains lovely designs of brick,sand, wood,etc. In fact the idea of “Moments” came to me when I saw this lovely stack. I was so transfixed by the colors of the papers which are so natural and pristine that I created this lovely frame to immortalize one of my special pics of my daughter. I am sure once you see this stack of Papericious, you would be also be fascinated and encouraged to create something of your own.

Just to help you with it, below is the step by step guide to the “Moments”

 I had taken three different pattern paper and torn it and added jute also.
 After the paper is torn i had soften the edges with water to give more natural turns and
did the arrangements.

 Next step was to add the modelling paste

 Next i had taken dusty attics chipboard and paint it with hot chocolate and
then added finnabair glitter and my embellishment was ready.
 And Lastly added flowers and papericious die-cut embellishments

I hope you all will like my tutorial and would like to hear you comments
Have A Nice Day !!!

Hello Everyone,

I've created this Mixed Media Album with Papericious newest collection "Ephemera" and Die cuts

 It is a 6 page Album...and here is making procedure...

I worked on 3 MDF pages. I covered them with white Gesso first. Next I cut out design papers according to the desired shapes.

For texture layer, I used embossing paste and stencil.  I just kept the photo mat size area empty. I did the same procedure for all pages and showing the procedure for only one page, here.

I spritzed ink and water to get color variations on the pages.

I dried the ink with heat tool and created next several layers with diecuts.

Here, you can see the layers behind photo mat.

this is a second page in album, you will find, I spritzed golden ink on some areas.

Hope you liked and got inspired!
Papericiuous Ephemera collection is just beautiful!!


A Masculine Layout Tutorial

11:17 am Unknown 7 Comments

Hello, good morning! ^__^

I'm Halak and today I'll be taking you through a masculine layout tutorial.

Making masculine projects is just so damn hard, right?!

Glitter or no glitter, sequins or no sequins.... what about flowers! Yikes! So many options and before you know it, boom, it's become a feminine project.

The Papericious Naturals collection is your answer to making stunning masculine and neutral themed projects!

So, let's get crafting!

Steps :

First I selected the pattern paper sheet I wanted to work with. I selected the light denim pattern design and stenciled the sentiment onto it.

Tip : There is an awesome collection of different textural denim patterns  in the Naturals collection that are great not only for Masculine themed projects but also look stunning with the Retro Chic style of papercrafting.

Once the sentiment was stenciled, I took some distress inks in the same color family as the pattern paper and stenciled in some designs.

Also added some washi tape bits.

Tip : Using stencils is a great way to add dimension and texture to your project without increasing it's weight. So if you are sending happy mail out to friends and family in different parts of the world, befriend the stencils and pattern papers. They will give you some stunning results in unison!

Took a darker denim sheet from the Naturals collection and hand-tore a strip from it.

Positioned the strip roughly where I wanted and added some more stenciling and washi tape.

Finally, added some sequins and a circle medallion that I hand-cut from Papericious Often collection.

I made a bunch of these medallions from the paper sheets and it was really simple :
Cut out the medallions, adhered a sticker to some and left some as-is.
Gave it a coat of glossy accents and sprinkled glitter over it.

Papericious papers play really nicely with each other and thus, a fusion of papers from different Papericious collections also looks great!

Have a look at the bunch of some more medallions I made :

Sparkly! ^__^

Bonus Project

Oh yeah! I have a bonus project tutorial for you!

A beautiful neutral birthday card thats super easy to make!

Pretty eh? Simple too! Let me show you how :

First I took this gorgeous wood plank style pattern paper from Papericious Naturals collection and stenciled + roughly stamped a script design stamp to select areas.

I took these 4 die-cuts from the Papericious Ephemera collection.

Hand-tore two pieces of pattern paper from Ephemera collection and stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment onto one piece (left the second piece as-is) and adhered both the pieces to paper.

Positioned the Ephemera die-cut embellishments roughly where I wanted them placed.

Tip : Always position your pieces before you glue / tape them down, because sometimes what's in your mind, might not necessarily look great in actuality! To be on a safer side, I photograph the placement I like and then move the pieces and work by looking at the photograph for adhering the elements to project.

Finally adhered the pieces and added some pink colored sequins.

Matted it onto white cardstock and... done!

That's that dear friends! I hope you enjoyed reading and thank you so much for stopping by! *Hugs*
