Guest Designer - Bipasha

Hello Crafters!

Hope you are enjoying our new Challenge#16 Fancy Me.

We have a fabulous and super talented guest DT this time and she is non other than Bipasha from

Bipasha was a top 3 in our last Challenge #15 with her fabulous creation and we are so excited that she not only has a inspiration but a gorgeous tute for us too! So over to her now.....

Bonjour my dear crafters! I am Bipasha from Assam. I always had a deep craving towards any form of art since childhood but studies and a constant drive to attain a remarkable career kept me always busy and far away from it. I seriously started making cards and scrapbooks from the March, 2012 and created by blog “CreateUr World” after I stepped onto the corporate world as a software engineer in Tech Mahindra. For me, crafting acts as a stress buster, a relaxation from the busy work schedules and hectic daily routines and by now it has become a big-time addiction!! I guess, you all will agree that ;)!!Crafting does sooth our mind...

Since then, I have continued receiving full support & encouragement from my parents, my granny (who is an ingenious crafter too and used to help with my school projects ,and my best friend ,Russel who has been a constant guide to all my decisions and a critical observer of my work & not to forget my dear friends from my workplace and hostel !! To acclaim some specific genre as my forte I would say I love creating themes in 3Ds, and consider my each creation as a “Canvas” .I also love drawing and painting my own digis. To be honest, a lot of the time my inspiration comes from wanting things I cannot afford. Instead of buying expensive things I like, I find ways to make them myself. I believe, creativity is just looking at things differently! 

I am truly amazed to see so many ambitious and brilliant crafters in this magical crafty blogland, and I make it a point to learn something new from them each time and can proudly say have made a hell lot of crafter buddies  J. And what else? A lot of there is still to explore within me…J

Lastly, my sincere thanks goes to Karuna and the super - awesome Lulupu team for selecting me as a Guest DesignerJ.

And here is my Inpiration for you today: 

Bright Canvas Style (I named it !): I know you guys might be re-reading the word “Canvas” Its because, an each item you can see a mix of bright colours, lil shabby and fairytale look in my creation! Well, I believe this world is but a canvas to our imagination. I never know what I'm going to put on the canvas. The canvas paints itself. I'm just the middle-woman (winks).Pretty spooky huh ! :P. The colors live a remarkable life of their own after they have been applied to the canvas, so you see? Each time I just let them do the job without intervening the process ^_^


And here is how you can try it too!

Recycling technique- Altered a double-sided spool into a mini farewell album)


· Empty double-sided tape spool
· Decorative paper
· Seam binding or ribbon
· Photos & some quotes
· Glue
· Handmade Flower embellishment
· Pixie dust


Step 1: Take a spool and clean a bit.

Step 2: Paint it with whatever color you desire. I chose white to paint.

Step 3: Now time to use your old PP scraps ! Measure the side and cut your designer paper to the same width. Adhere to outside of ribbon spool.

Step 4:  I used ribbon to adhere my photos and to. I cut designer paper to the same size as my photos and sandwiched the ribbon in between the papers. I glued it the string of photos to the top of the box. To look at the photos you just pull and view!

Step 5:  I accordion folded the photos inside the box.

Step 6: Embellish the top with lots of handmade flowers and bows and a farewell quote ofcourse!

So, next time you have your empty spool, transform it into a cute recycled craft project! Creativity and pretty paper are all you need to make your own Double-Sided tape Spool Photo Album J !

Hope you like it .Happy Crafting!!
