Artful Crafting – Challenge 12 Mom

Hello :)

Hope life has been treating everyone well. Time sure flies by, its been a year since the Artful Crafting design team came into being, has been an amazing journey not only full of learning but of new loving friendships for which I am utterly grateful!

This new year the challenges are going to take a different turn, instead of being theme based they will be ‘mood-board’ based along with a theme :D

A lot of international design firms host mood-board challenges (Prima and Maja Design have great ones!) on their blogs and they are so much fun. For those of you who are not familiar with what a mood board is, it is ‘an arrangement of images, materials, pieces of text, etc. intended to evoke or project a particular style or concept.’ So for a mood board challenge you can use any part of it as inspiration for your project, could be the colors, the words, the pictures and you can of course combine parts too :)

Artful Crafting has introduced a Spring kit using the Simple Stories Carpe Diem collection, the first from their side. There is a main kit, a card kit and an embellishment kit as well. All three kits are of great value and such fun and bright and would go wonderfully with any of your spring themed/get together/vacation projects. Also there are many new products on the website, the Prima’s CHA 2016 collections are also in stock and running out fast and there is an amazing sale on Punches as well, do check it out! :D

Crafty Kickstart 16 – Third round of posts

Hello :)

Im back starting the third round of posts for the ‘Crafty Kickstart 2016’. If you’re just joining in, you can read all about it here. To those of you who have subscribed, please do check your email inbox, you should all have an email from me, will be looking forward to hearing back from you all.

Today I am sharing a card with you all which I just finished like an hour ago. Crafted after almost a month, my mojo is more like frozen. I had gotten hold of the wonderful ‘Beautiful Life‘ stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps before I fell ill but had not gotten around to using it. This is a newer stamp company and have a few sets out so far but all of them are amazing. I only got hold of this one and regretted later not getting hold of the rest of them. Will get them soon.

Hello Everyone! :) Time certainly flies, im back again with my project for Artful Crafting’s Challenge #8 which is Water coloring!

Water Coloring is all the rage these days and was super excited when I got to know that was going to be the theme for the new challenge. Honestly I had not experimented much with water coloring myself so I was looking forward to getting down to it myself. I got a wonderful box of Prima Watercolor Pencils – The Basics set from Artful Crafting as the kit for this month.
