Baby Boy Mini Album

Hello crafting friends!!

This Ruthie and today I bring a Mini Album for a baby boy!! I used to think that doing a MA would be hard and would take time; but no; it's really easy to do them.

First I made the base of the MA with white solid cardstock. I used my Silhouette Cameo; and the file album for a baby.

Then I used DWCV patter paper to cover the base cardstock. Added the ultrasound images and added stickers with baby motives to embellish the album.

It's easy to combine papers when you use the same collection of papers. Or go ahead and mix and match from your collection!

Since this is a MA for a baby boy I chose boy pattern paper. Aren't these cute?  

I tried to not put a lot of embellishments to keep the attention on the ultrasound images.

The MA is a great idea to keep all the pictures together on one event.

This is the back side of the MA; I left it without embellishments because this part would be facing down. I used the crop-a-dile to make the holes, to put the eyelets and added twine

Hope you like Mini Album. This is for my step-daughter who is having a baby boy.

Don't forget to participate on our challenge this month Weather or not . We cannot wait to see you projects! See you next time!!

Without wasting any time, I will just add that it is pink-ish, glittery and I've added some Quilling. :D

Technique: Embossing a wine tag

Hello crafting friends!! This is Ruthie and today I come with the embossing technique but with a variant. I decided to do embossing on a wine tag but with different colors; yes, so I used a the VersaMark Watermark Ink Stamp Pad  Dazzle Frost and the Bricks Tempalate

Its's quite simple but i would still go ahead and share the easy steps!

I used the Inkadinkado Embossing Magic Bag to remove any static from the paper. This is one useful product i cannot have neat embossing without. I put the desired stencil on the tag and apply the VersaMark Watermark Ink Stamp Pad  Dazzle Frost over the cardstock. With this particular embossing ink you get a beautiful dazzle effect as well unlike the plain Versamark.


I used green, yellow and red embossing powders. Choose colours you love! And then with a heat craft tool  settle the embossing powder; you will see how it changes the consistency and creates a fabulous texture look.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut this wine tag ; makes it easier! You can have a wine tag in just a few minutes! Else there are couple of templates floating around too :)

Here is a close up! I used the Lawn Fawn stamp from the set Hello Friend with Archival Dye Ink - Jet Black. Archival inks are water resistant and my favourite. You can use them on all surfaces and they are suitable for stamping, embossing too!

Now it is ready as a gift!

Hope you like this technique and this wine tag. I love it!! You can use this technique for just about andy project!

I am here today with a Review for Sakura Glaze Pens. I really need to mention this, this was my first here purchase from Lulupu's store should be in 2011 when i started paper crafting and when my crafty shopping was in peak... :P

I really love these pens. I don't know if i can give you a formal review, but i can show you how nice it and where all to use these pens.

Tutorial - Diorama Card

Hello all you beautiful folks..

I hope everyone has been having fun with the alll the holidays lined up. I for one am going nuts, because i have an extremely active 3 year old (who loves school!) sitting at home for four long days!!

This month at Lulupu we have the challenge #15 Weather or not.. And right now in Hyderabad it rains on and off but mostly pleasant.. This lets me take my daughter to the park and she absolutely looooves the swings! Wants to swing higher and higher.. my card represents just that happiness :) its a Diorama card or like a scene within a scene :)

A play ground.. :) for me, that signifies pure innocence :) it is such a joy to watch children play with unabashed laughter, smiles and fun!

I've used distress inks to create the background within. Some clouds, butterflies, birds, technique tuesday stamps, to complete the diorama portion of my card (pssst - technique tuesday coming to lulupu sooooon!!)

 The tree represents autumn :) Its a die cut that ive misted with my home made mists :)

Like i said, happiness is what i connect with a playground and the little girls swinging and laughing, the fluttering butterflies, the puffy clouds - all HAPPY! The sentiment is again die cut.. I have also added some stickles onto the birds and butterflies :)

I had seen this card a while back and this is the tutorial based on the way i've made it :)

Supplies needed-

One 8 1/2" x 11" card stock
Bone folder/scoring board
Dies/scissors - i didnt have a big frame so i used the biggest die i had and then hand cut around it :)

Step 1
Cut the cardstock at 5 1/2" leaving you with 2 pieces of 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"

Step 2
Score one of the pieces at 41/4" - Card panel
Trim the other piece to 4 3/4" x 5 1/2" - window panel
You will have these pieces -

Step 3
Score the window panel at 1/8" on either side. Adhere your die to the centre of the panel and run it through your machine. You'll get a window cut.

Step 4
These are your two panels ready. Decorate as desired first and then adhere the window to the base :)

Hope you have enjoyed this.. see you at #15! :)
