New birthday cards..

Busy day! Stayed up last night to make a card for a friend and then woke up early to make a card (the orange one) for a cousin who said she was coming today! Image

In other news, here’s a fab DIY I found: notebooks you can make yourself without any stitching or binding! Check them out here.

New projects …

So busy-busy-busy! It’s been a long time, I know! But I’m back with some more new projects and a surprise! Image

Here is the box I made for a friend a few weeks ago. She wanted something special for her best friend, but with the message in a bottle theme. So I whipped up this box and bottle. More pictures to follow.

So, the surprise! In a few days, I’ll be starting a new series called Share Your Story to showcase a variety of scrapbook artists and their stories. Stay tuned to find out who the first guest is!

Inspiration Monday – Minimalistic Layouts

I’m finding these new layered beauties everywhere! The best thing is how simple they are – everything is just contained on one spot on the page and then several soft elements lead your eyes around the page.

I’m loving this layout – it’s so simple yet so pretty. I love the neutral colour palette with just a hint of teal. Check out some more of Stephanie’s work here – I think it’s just fabulous.

And Marcy Penner’s layouts are so fun! Again, loving the minimalistic yet layered look. Splatters are my favourite elements!

And here is another one of my favourites. Again, focus on one spot but loving it!

If you are new to layering, check out this layering week over at papercraftscorner, where you can look at this picture tutorial, or read these fab tips.

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Elephant Cards

Hey everyone! Let me show you the two elephant cards that I made yesterday! I was over at Shimelle, where I saw this guest post by Julie Kirk, who discussed so many ways to use old book pages in your projects! Her elephant card really got me inspired. And so, yesterday, I sat down and picked up a few things (my cards are very minimalistic – in supplies – these days!) to make these.

Image

I used paper from Echo Park’s collections: Summer Days and Playground, my typewriter for the greeting, old book page and a wooden stamp from my local craft store (they are handmade in my country to use for fabric stamping but I use it for crafts!). I added a torn strip from my notepaper to give it an eclectic feel and I doodled a border around the edges.

Image

Another one! This time, you can see a piece of gauze behind the elephant! I try to use a wide variety of supplies! The button is from an old sweater, and I knotted some orange twine (I cheated: I took white twine and coloured it orange with my Sharpie.) Some more torn notepaper edge! I love the way it adds to my card.

I hope you like these two. You can follow me on instagram (kitscard).

Love,

Nuzhat.
