Sparkle with Prima Bloghop - Day 12 with Bipasha

Hi everyone!
Welcome to the final day of the Sparkle with Prima Blog hop!
You can check out our blog hop details HERE starting from day one.

We are all enjoying visiting  each of your blogs to see your creations. There is still time left to complete your projects and link them up - This challenge closes on 31st October, 2014 

There are prizes for entering the challenge

(you can find the challenge guidelines here and general guidelines here)

There are also prizes for leaving a comment on every blog ( remember to linkup your name here). Make sure you read this post for all the details.

Now onto what you and I are eagerly waiting for. The final reveal!
Our final Guest for the this month's bloghop is a very talented crafter -  Bipasha.

Bonjour ! I'm Bipasha, an ever pleasant, and cheerful techno wizard but yeah thankfully a budding crafter now! It is my craft works that define me. I am the kind of person who visualizes the various incidents happening around me and converts them into joyful blends of strokes. 

My style is an ever-changing art form. I don't think I have a particular style as I am always inspired by everyday events and moments. I tend to create highly dimensional projects; it really sets a different idea as to what can be created with just paper, few metals and hues. It is the sensation of seeing my own creative ideas bringing out tears of joy and happiness in people around me that motivates and inspires me to thrive with great zeal and enthusiasm.

Prima has played a major role in revolutionizing the crafting industry and has fulfilled the deepest desires of billions of crafters with their variety of product line releases. It is indeed my privilege to come up with a tutorial based dimensional project inspiration using Finnabair's glitter series and the latest Prima collections.

Being proud of my new venture as an endorsed Prima educator, I also look forward to taking crafting to another level of innovation and brilliance with my crafting classes. I also would like to express my sincere gratitude to Karuna and the entire Lulupu crew for inviting me as a guest designer in this blog hop. 

Hoping it inspires all the crafting genes out there, this is Bipasha signing off!! ;) 
I'm off to visit Bipasha at BKs Creative Corner, hope you are too!

Sparkle with Prima Blog Hop - Day 9 with Mallika Kejriwal

Hi everyone!
Welcome to Day 9 of the Blog hop!
You can check out our blog hop details HERE starting from day one.

A quick reminder that there are plenty of (Prima) goodies up for grabs not only from participating in the month's challenge but also for completing the blog hop.

Today's Guest Designer who is no stranger to you all. Her creations can be instantly recognized by her signature style - gorgeous lace, flower clusters and unique backgrounds.


Let's see what she says...

"My name is Mallika Kejriwal. I am from India and I just moved to Chicago from sunny California. I have loved colors, threads, ribbons and such since the age of 5 - I remember making pretty clothes for my dolls as a little girl.
As I grew up, I engrossed myself in studies and forgot about my creative side. It was during my junior year of engineering (I am a computer science graduate), that I started making cards using newspapers, old scraps of paper etc. I stumbled upon a card making blog and was simply amazed by the amount of glamour that could be associated with a piece of paper. I started my own blog – Aola Handmade Cards – after undergrad and have not looked back since.
I love teaching and inspiring . Crafting is now not just a passion for me, it’s also an addiction! I hope to inspire you all with wonderful ideas and projects."

I teach via my Youtube Channel and I try to inspire as many possible via my blog.
For this blog hop I have used almost every new release of Prima. Please hop over to see full details.

Here is the sneak peek of my project

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.. ;)

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.

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.
