Simply Scrapping....

Hello....

How has everyone been and how was Diwali?? Did you guys have a blast... I did have a blast although now am so tired I feel lethargic to even move my BIG body... Aarrggghhhh... And of course, with every break I take my Mojo says.. Well you wanted a holiday for 2 days.. I'll give you even a longer break.. I'll go fishing and I am like Aaaaarrrggghhhh a second time...

Anyways.. today's card is a scrappy one.. I have now accumulated like 2 big boxes of scraps and mum was going pretty berserk and kept threatening to throw them out.. And I was really scared in case she decided to make good of the threat... So I was scratching my head wondering what to make when this idea clicked to me....Had been speaking to my best mate's girl then.. She kind of liked the idea and asked me to make one for her guy ( meaning my bestie) to celebrate ALMOST 5 years of togetherness *wood touch*... So basically, I literally put my heart in it...

Made a tag book... Or whatever you wanna call it.. It was basically a way for me to use my scraps.. I cut off the tiniest of pieces to make use of it... LOL...

Take a look at it but let me give you far warning that this is a PICTURE HEAVY POST... :D



This is how it looks like in a bunch... Now I will give you close-up shots of individual tags...


Like I mentioned... All the tags made out of scraps.... The die cut shape has been traced and hand cut... This time it became tedious because it really was a long ask... :-).. the digi is a coloring page from the net.. All the bling on it from my stash... All the white space will be covered by my friend.. She wanted to add something to it.. LOL... Colored using my water color pencils from Staedler... and some faux stitching around it... :-).. the just a note is from Unity's Just wanted to say bought from Ujjwal...






Made a mini card and stuck on this tag.. The die cut shape ofcourse has been traced.. even this mini-card is made out of scraps.. The PP was a RAK from Shruti and this is the last bit of scrap left from it which I have used...The MS butterflies were a RAK from Spardha ( Thank you Kiddo.. I love them).. and some Pie Lane crystals... and faux stitching around it using my white signo gel pen.. :-)


A lot of stickers from Itsy Bitsy.. Some faux stitching... and my wonderful writing...


The red circles have been hand drawn and cut.. Faux stitching.. The yellow space is left blank for some doodling... (personal stuff.. Cannot show it on blogger.. *wink*)...







Hobby Ideas PP, Scallop circle hand cut.. Itsy bitsy flowers embosed and some Pie Lane Chunky glitter and glitter balls... :-)





Pie Lane silhouette sticker and loads of writing... :D....


made a sun out of die cuts... And just the Pie Lane Out line hearts for embellishment.. Simple.. :-)


Some quilling by moi, Pie Lane flowers and leaves... They are just so adorable and fun to use.. Love the effect of them with quilling... :-).. The golden star on the flower centre was sent to me by Doc... More of it later...



A tag with a pocket to hold some more tags.. LOL... THis was made by request.. There is no dearth of writing when you're in LOVE... :D.. The PP was a birthday RAK from Piali..


This is the last tag of the lot.. I have made a single page squash book and stuck it on the tag.. Squash books are good fun to make.. Will post the one I made soon, as soon as the recipient receives it... The PP on top of the squash book is from Street lace which I bought from Karuna's store...The PTI butterfly has been traced and cut on the last scrap of PP which was a RAK from Shruti... The ribbon is from my stash... Lots of faux stitching again... :-)

A look at the cover of the squash book... :-)


The brown bling is from my stash... Inspired by seeing cards from Tejal and Shalini.. Their flourishes look like flourishes.. Mine looks like a trail of fire... What the heck.. I'll improve.. :D....

The inside of the squash book... :-)


The top left and bottom right PP is from Hobby Ideas.. The squashed squares have PP from Grace Taylor and Paper Mania.. The former bought from karuna's store and the latter a RAK from tejal... The red flower stones were sent to me by Doc and the so are the tiny flowers used on the top panel.. Thanks Doc...

Well, that's it folks.. This is the complete tag book.. I had so much fun making it.. There is just so much you can do with this.. the scope and possibilities are endless...

Special mention about my delayed birthday card from Doc.. She sent me the most amazinf phoenix pop up card... Which unfortunately has been kept somewhere in the whole diwali cleaning.. promise to upload it as soon as I lay my hands on it again.. Along came a pack of beautiful rhinestones, leaves and heart shaped pearls...Thanks so much for ti Doc... Truly appreciate it...

Nice and bright , Khush.

Benzi said...

Khush, this was a labor of love....and a good way to use those scraps. I can imagine how look it took to hand cut those bases. I made a yearly calendar once (several) and watercolored them....took a long time. This is sure to be appreciated and loved.

About our Fall season, it is a time when the leaves turn beautiful colors and we celebrate Halloween (last night) and then Thanksgiving in late November. Lots of pumpkins involved in both. :-)
Hope this helped a bit.
