Today I am sharing with you a mixed media canvas that was custom designed for a client. The lady wanted to present it to her husband on his birthday. It was to be designed to hold 3, 2″x3″ photographs. I started with a 6″x9″ piece of canvas that I adhered to a chipboard piece of same dimensions. For embellishment I Fussy cut hearts and phrases out of paper. These were backed with cardstock and a coat of Mod Pauge was applied for durability.

The text was composed in different fonts and sizes and printed out on heavy offwhite paper. THese were edged with red ink and sealed with a coat of Mod Pauge. I diecut a  mini-envelope and sealed it too. When I had my embellishments and word strips ready I arranged and re-arranged and re-arranged until I got it right. Added some puffy heart stickers, glitter and a ribbon bow to finish it off. And following is the result. The client was happy.

A little sneak peak of what to expect in the coming days (hopefully soon). puches in all sizes and shapes. An easy quick way to perk up your paper craft projects. What I love about punches is you can make your own embellishments coordinating with your papers and projects. You don’t have to have a lot of punches. a couple of butterflies, a flower or two and some circles/ scallop circles and you can do a lot with these. An edger would also be a useful addition to your crafting equipment.

Winged wonders is what I like to call them. Lots of butterfly punches, among other shapes, are on their way. All of the Martha Stewart butterflies are lovely and I use them alone as well as in combinations. An easy quick way to perk up your paper craft projects

 

So watch out and keep tuned as I will be adding these to the craft supplies as they arrive.

 

Speechless, well almost.

I had hoped for a good response, to my new venture (madness perhaps), my dream to offer craft supplies at  affordable prices. It has taken a lot of time and work (yeah I know I said that before) and at times I thought I was being reckless, you know, ordering such a lot of stuff. But I didn’t let my doubts win and i’m glad for it. The response has been overwhelming. Many of the items were ordered in multiples of 5s or 6s to be able to give you good prices and a lot of these are gone. I feel happy and blessed.

There have been fresh additions to the Bling section. perhaps you would like to have a look.

Good Morning among other things

Lovely Morning here in Faisalabad. Hope everything is good at your end.

There has been an overwhelming response to the new craft supplies that I’ve added to my blog. Thanks for your appreciation. While a lot of the items are available there are others that are sold out or ‘reserved’. for those who have reserved supplies especially distress inks and glossy accents I have a lot of inquiries regarding these items. so I’ll wait till tomorrow for you guys to deposit the payment. If that doesn’t happen I will offer these to the next person in line.

Will hopefully get back with something interesting later.

Happy crafting.

The waiting is over.

After weeks and months of planning, ordering, working out everything, calculations and re-calculations and of course waiting the first installment is here and posted on the blog with all the information you need.

I have tried to keep the prices within your purchasing power. There is no fun in doing all this if you guys cannot buy any of it. Do keep in mind that these products were purchased from a retailer and not a company or wholesaler. on top of the retail price are shipping costs and Duties. The prices are not more than 1 and a half times the actual retail price. I’ve worked endless hours to make these products available to you at reasonable prices. The sole motive is to promote paper crafts.

So have a look, browse, and ask if something is not clear. But I do request you to always mention the Product code, which is mentioned with every image., for inquiries or purchase.
