Sparkle with Prima Blog Hop Day #7 - with Nikita Azad

Hello dear friends! This is Deepti here and welcome to the 7th day of Sparkle with Prima Blog Hop.
Hope you are all having a great time visiting the design team and guest design team member's blogs. 
Today, I'm so happy to welcome our guest designer, a beautiful lady and a sweet crafter,

NIKITA AZAD, welcome dear friend!

Hello everyone! I am sooo glad guest post for Lulupu!! :) :) Many of you may know me from when I was a part of the Design Team right here at Lulupu until recently. I loooove to write and I am currently working on a book which is why I stepped down from the Design Team. But for those who don’t, here’s a little introduction. I’ll try to keep it short. :)

I am from Mumbai and I’ve lived here all my life. I discovered paper crafting in June-July 2010 (four years, now) when I was hiding in my ‘study room’ trying to do everything to escape from my CA exams. Since then, there has been no looking back. I started with Quilling - I bought a Quilling starter kit from Hobby Ideas and I was browsing online for tutorials when I found a few craft blogs - and later explored card-making and scrapbook-ing too. Quilling is still my favourite, though. As far as my crafting style is concerned, I don’t think I have a particular style, or even if I do, I don’t know what it’s called  :P. You can figure it out yourself. I blog at

Wow! the sneak peek picture looks so cool and trendy. Hmmn! I can't figure it out if it's a card or what :p.. Lol! If you guys wanna know what she cooked for this blog hop, please head over to her blog for more details..

Wait a minute!!!!!!!!!!!

Before hoping I would like to remind you the few things that is going on this Lulupu blog, just a gentle reminder!

1. There is a Design Team (DT) call going on..
2. We have a challenge too 'Sparkle with Prima' and 
3. We have some exciting prizes for the winners and top 3 of the challenge and also for the blog hop winners..

Hope everything is clear! Now hop on and have fun.. ;)

Please welcome Riti.
I am a crazy Crafter from Kolkata married to my Sweetheart Sourav for 9 1/2 years now. He has always supported my addiction for my hobby cum passion Crafting!! I have been blogging about my Crafty Passion since 4 years now and am so happy to have met and made so  many friends from all over the globe sharing the same interest!
My Blog -
Is named after my craft room which I call "My Lil Heaven - where all the scrap happens.."

Well I have been crafting since my childhood days.. I loved decorating my school & classroom bulletin boards, my Room with all kinds of handmade posters and wall décor pieces. Not a single Relative or friend's Birthday/Anniversary would go without a handmade card/ gift from me. I rarely gifted a store bought card to anyone.
And today I have come a long way from just cards.. I enjoy All types of paper crafting from stamping to Mixed Media.. From CAS cards to a heavily embellished canvas to an altered Art and of course Albums and Journals.
I'm so excited to be a part of this Super Talented Blog Hop Group and am thankful to Karuna for giving me this chance.
Well a little bit about my Project,
I LOVE Prima Products and the minute Karuna mentioned that we need to create something using Prima I exactly knew that I had to use my "COFFEE BREAK" supplies (which is a brand new Collection) for this Hop!! And I created this cute lil mini album using tonnes of yummy supplies from this collection.
I had tonnes of fun while making it & am Super excited about the way it looks !! I Hope you all like it too !!

She is well known for mixed media work.

In her own words 
 "I am aphenomenally lazy paper crafter,ardent book reader, aspiring artist and a lover of all things pretty.I have been trying to do my bit to add beauty to this world one project at a time and I chronicle  my creative aspirations and adventures at
 I am easily distracted and want to try out everything I see, so my crafting style and projects are all over the place. If I had to necessarily define it, I would say that till date my style has gravitated between, shabby chic ,vintage and mixed media. I love getting my hands dirty and working with paints ,modelling paste ,sprays,mediums and stamps gives me a rush like no other. My most favourite kinds of projects are altered projects and canvases. My current obsession is watercolours and making cards and I am good at neither.:-)"

 Actually she is brilliant artist :)
She has created  amazing mixed media piece to inspire you all, here is sneak peek,
