Hello crafty folks,
I am Gayatri, mother of two wonderful boys. I have been an art and craft lover from my younger days. I used to enjoy and love my craft classes in my school days. After a long time, five years back I stepped into crafting world through quilling. I slowly tried my hand in scrapbooks and decoupage. I love making my flower embellishments and try making different fold cards and interactive cards.

 Today I am showcasing the recently launched paper pack ‘I Love You’. Such a gorgeous combination of teal and pink. I have made two interactive cards and a tag with the scraps I had.

Spinner Card
Recently Jennifer McGuire had shared a spinner card tutorial and I had to give it a try. I took a white card base and layered with one of the sheets and few cut apart from the pack. On the inside I created a spinner heart and layered with coordinating sheets.

Check out the Video below to see the Spinner in action:

Shaker Card
The second card is a shaker card. I made two heart windows and created the shaker part on the front panel. I added few handmade flowers and die cuts to decorate the front panel. The paper pack has cute little cut apart and I had to create something with them. So I made a simple pop up elements on the inside. And added the sentiment from the sheet.

Check out the video below to get a better idea:

I had scrap papers lying around and I thought that what better way to make use of them than making a tag? I cut a base measuring 3.5” x 5.5” and trimmed the scraps and added a doily scrap too! I also added few fussy cut elements from the sheets.

Supplies Used:

Hope you liked my creations. Your feedback means a lot to me.
Till next time – 
Happy crafting!

Hello everyone!
This is Nikkita and I am back with another inspirational post using the gorgeous HOOKED paper collection from Papericious.

I have made a Mini Scrapbook/ Photo Book specially handcrafted with love. 
Love needs no reason, no season, day or occasion to express, so take a look at this mini album, a perfect gift for someone special made with folds and flaps to keep those moments alive and have them kept here safely forever.

For the album cover, I have fussy cut some floral and word sentiments from the collection and added some blings and metal embellishments to enhance the beauty of the paper collection.
This paper-pack is so gorgeous and the quality of the papers are really good and smooth finished.


Hope you are inspired to create some beauties using the gorgeous paper collection from Papericious.

Wiper Card using Hooked Paper Pack

11:00 am Tanvi 1 Comments

Hello there & thank you so much for joining me today.
This is Tanvi & I share a fun  card tutorial. This one is called a WIPER CARD, with a hidden interactive element. While it may sound complicated, its really easy peasy & I am surprised I have never tried this in my many years of card making.
A Wiper Card is a pop-up card with a swinging tab that pops out when the ends are pulled. This tab can be used to hold a sentiment, a balloon, a flower, a quote anything. What did I use? Well.......Wait for the surprise 😍
Here are some close ups of the front -
To make this card I have used Black Cardstock  - 2 pieces measuring 4 1/4" x 8 1/2".
Score at 1 1/2" and 3". Create a valley fold on one score line and a mountain fold on the second, as shown below.  Repeat for the second piece of cardstock. These when glued will form the card base.
Next use 1 piece of cardstock -  1 1/2 x 3" for the "wiper". Mark at 1 1/2" on the long side.
  • Score from the top right corner to the 1 1/2" mark by placing the right hand corner in the 1" groove and line the left hand corner up with the 1" mark on the left hand side of the scoring board.
  • Add double sided tape on the scored triangle on the bottom of the strip ONLY.  If you place it over the entire bottom strip, the wiper won't work.
  • Take one of the card base pieces and lay it down with the score lines to the right. This will be your card front. Adhere the strip, between the two score lines as shown below. 
  • Now comes the fun element! Yes, instead of an embellishment I have glued a gift card to the tab! Isn't that awesome & sure to bring a smile to the recipient.
  • To assemble the card, add adhesive to the edges of both 4 1/4" sides of the cardstock piece. Place the second 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock over the card front. This time make sure the score lines are on the left. This is how it looks after gluing both the piecesPull both the sides together & out pops the gift card - 
  • Here is a small video of the card - 

  • I loved playing with this fun fold and I am sure you will too if you decided to give it a go. Cheers!
