I would like to thank you Priya Sivaraj for giving me this opportunity to show my creativity through her blog. I hope you will all stay with me till this post ends.
So today I am using “Craftreat – Ever Yours” paper pack for a scrapbook album. This paper pack is Matte finish, uniquely design, vibrant colors, best for love, anniversary, proposed scrapbook albums. I have made a simple but beautiful album to store all your memories from when you first time met to till marriage.

So here is my album, have a look (psst…. picture heavy post )
Some close-ups how I give some shimmer effect on flowers and if you all can see I have gave a bit texture to background paper.
This album is of 5-1/2″ tall and 7-1/2″ wide with spine of 4-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. But when you open it has two parts, one is LOVE and another is MARRIAGE.
I have attached some Love related charms and tiny tassel on spine side. Now let’s open the album and see how I have created two different sections.
This is what you will see when you first open the album which is tied with a ribbon. Some LOVE section close-ups.
DSC02202 I have created a pocket where you can put some notes, tags. I have also adhered some heart diecuts so that you can put your pictures. Now, Lets open Love section side and see what’s inside.
This is how it is looking when you open the LOVE section. Left side I have used some chippies from papericious, love laser-cut out from my stash and silhouette mdf cutout which I have painted with black acrylic color and did some decoupage on girl frok.
All front pages have some flaps and envelopes to store pictures, notes and tags. And all back pages have photo frames. Each pages has slider tags to attach some more pictures.
Now, will show you other section which is MARRIAGE. Have a look,
I have created same pages as per Love section part. All front pages have some flaps and envelopes to store pictures, notes and tags. And all back pages have photo frames. Each pages has slider tags to attach some more pictures.
This is a centre part when both Love and Marraige sections are opened. In centre you can slide couple picture/ some note.

Now, Let’s move to my second project. First I want to apologies as this is my first try with decoupage technique and I tried my level best. The decoupage papers are from “Craftreat” new release from last month.
So, I have created a wall decor frame, where I have used one of a set of decoupage paper, Have a look,
I have another project using another Decoupage paper, I have tried some mixed media on Embroidery loop. This is 6″ round loop, embellish with some flowers, charms, MDF cutout, gesso, colored it with watercolor sprays, and to give some sparkling effect I have used diamond dust (I hope you all can see this effect).
