HELLO ,amigos hope u r having a wonderful day !

well today is not just a regular day for me ! its a very special one because
no. 1 : I was able to surprise my dearest inspiration (my mom) ! and

This project has been on my mind since long (like the to d wish list since first when i encountered it )
and its very close to my heart as I'm gifting it to my mom who loves to stitch and loves vintage .

so I combined the 2 and created this beautiful(I'm taking the liberty to call it so ) I even used her old hoop (like 20 years old) and used it up in the project too.

so lets check out the sneak peak
These Effiletower chippies r gorgeous and MB has these at some amazing deals 

The bob-in roll also stole from her sew box and that little tape too , i had do , as she never would let me use it otherwise  :P (sry mom , but i know ull love this )

the stone chain is at the best quality at the store and can add the perfect needed glam



that chic bow and also 
 check out the gorgeous lace trim from madras bazaar ! its totally a must have !

THE PEARLS R AVAILABLE IN THE STORE (HUGE HUGE SIZE RANGE AND GORGEOUS COLORS  )

LOVE  THIS DULL LIGHTING PICTURE -make its so soft and more adorable <3

so here is the reveal ! its to die for ! these mannequins r like the immediate things everyone should be doing as trust me these r addictive ,great prices at the store of MB so check out before stock out ! 

(i used a white mannequin ,I bed u cant make out as I guessoesd and then spray-painted it .it does look vintage !)
I Used a scrapbooking paper to create the pleated dress.



THE BASE is wooden with pebbles and the glass dome has the cutest ballerina sitting inside in its pose (its my collectible since I was in 4th  standard -and i had the perfect opportunity to use it )

completed the look with few more chippies ,buttons ,pearls and charms to add more vintage charm .

I hope u liked what I created .AND U GET INSPIRED TO CREATE ONE FOR SURE

THE BLOCK BOX card with lace flower

wishing u a bright morning !


I'm on  the blog today to share a new style of card which would be perfect for the last minute gifts as it takes about 30 mins to make ! and looks sturdy and gorgeous with ample of space and pockets for the write ups and pictures!(it has a secret pocket too :P)
so without a further  a do lets check out what we r gona make :)




i used the pearls of different sizes to create dimension on the card front 




so here is the card ! isn't the Dollie perfectly matching the flower !(handmade lace flower , the tutorial also attached below )


birthday blessings for sure  <3

pockets and removable tags and apple space to fill in loads of more tags and pictures 


surprise surprise more space !

hope u like  what u see , so now lets get making !

: PICTORIAL :

STEP 1 : take a cardstock of size 12 inches *10 inches 
and score 12 inches side at 5 1/2 and 6 1/2 inches 
and store the 10 inches side at 7 inches score line 

this way we have a hinge and to cabin blocks , add tacky tape as shown in the picture and stick alog to create pockets .


STEP 2 :repeat it again on a new piece of card stock 


STEP 3 : attach the 2 cards as shown in the picture leaving one side open (op) for the secret pocket 


STEP 4 :you will end up with something like this 


STEP 5 : to one of the side add the tacky tape(this should  be ur front ) and add the lace trim 



STEP 6 : no flip over and stick the green card stock to the back of the card 



STEP 7 :for the top  add the glitter card-stock ,I used the dcwv stack page  for this as it served perfect contrast .
the rest u can add a Dollie and a contrasting flower to finish the cover 



Tutorial to make the lace flower



 I used the lace trim from my stash and layered it on a piece of paper sticking using glue gun  as shown in the pictures to create a double layered flower







tada ! we r done , now add embellishments, pearls, die-cuts from ur stash to make the card more happening :)
