Guest Designer in December - Isha Tripathi

Dear all,

Its time for our second Guest designer of the month. Today we have a new crafter on the block, Isha Tripathi from, to share with us her take on our Challenge#7. Do take a moment to visit her blog to check out all her fabulous creations! :)

Now, lets see what has she cooked for us in her laboratory (or you could call it a craft room).. *winks*

"hello everyone ... i am Isha Tripathi from Lucknow pursuing MBA .. I started crafting and blogging recently and i am madly in love with it ....

Firstly I would like to thank Karuna (di ) and the entire Lulupu Team for giving me an opportunity  .... this is my first ever GD post ... my first ever scrapbook layout (12x12) and since this was my first scrapbook layout i was after Karuna (di ) with so many doubts and questions and as always she was so nice to me :)

The challenge was to create a scrapbook layout ( i was like its easy i can do it :) ) , Theme - Favourite Month of the year 2012- what will i do  ) and finally minimal use of ready to use embellishment ( hmmmm ??- now what :P ) . my fav month of the year - NOVEMBER ( I knw)

After spendding days in thinking what should i make i came up with this ... last month it was my bday and i was jus refreshing my memories by turning the pages of my album and i cam across this picture me (red color dress) and my friend , it was clicked on my bday when i turned 12 .. so here is my lilttle inspiration for Lulupu Challenge #7 

Well there so much to this Scrapbook layout . First of all i have used a Martha Stewart Deco shell border punch to cut my scrapbook paper ,pattern papers (PP) used is Hello Sunshine By Grace Taylor from Lulupu Store .. then i have done layreing ,distressing , stamping on the paper .

I have tried some cross stiching as well .. and heat embossed the weathered clock from tim holtz ( loved the effect) 

Now coming over to embellishment part ... i have used the pattern papers from same collection stamped, punched out the flowers and distress the edges, leaves as well.

For rosette i have used a plain red color cardstock and punched the edges with Martha Stewart Doiley Lace Punch. For the flower centers i have used Flat Pearls as well.

Hope you have enjoyed as much i did making this :)
