Hi! I’m from Robbinsville, NJ…currently living in India for hubby’s work project.

I’ve been married to wonderful husband for 15 years and together we’ve two adorable girls of age 11
and 7. I’ve been papercrafting & blogging for three years now. I’m a cardmaker , a stamp addict and
a budding scrapbooker. I like to try new techniques and trends for my creations. I create in variety
of styles. My personal favorite is CAS stamped cards.I have been so fortunate to have my creations
published in several Papercrafting magazines and have designed for some wonderful companies.

Thank you Karuna for inviting me as your GDT!! 

My Blog:

Cut and sore the cardbase;
Trim the PP and stamp the sentiment; Round off the top corners;
Die cut the hearts, stamp on it and stitch them;
Tie the ribbon;
Adhere the panel to the cardbase;

For the base..diecut the PP and stamp the sentiments;
For bookmark… diecut/punch hearts of two size…one smaller than the other;
ONLY apply adhesive to the top of the smaller heart and adhere it to the larger
Super easy project;

Fortune cookies:
Die cut or punch circles out PP.
Fold the circle in half with creasing the center;
Add a tiny bit of liquid glue and adhere the center of open edge;
Insert the message and fold the ends in backwards direction;
Add a tiny glue dot too hold the folds together;

Pencil arrow:
Just diecut/punch two hearts and adhere the sides only;
Slide it to the tip of the pencil;
Cut two piece of PP, adhere the sides only;
Cut it into arrow back shape and slide it to the top the pencil;

Thank you.
