I am here with a video tutorial of how to make Valentine’s day card from scratch to finish using Cottage Blush double sided papers. I have DMC Dies too to add that extra dimension to the cards. This week is a perfect excuse to get you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside and rather than buying into the so-called “Gift-shops”, it’s important to embrace your creativity and create your own cards.

So here are some pictures of my project.

This collection has a unique element sheet with lovely messages so now you don’t have to freeze when it will come to write messages, after all, it’s sometimes difficult how-to sum-up your unique relationship with a special someone in just a sentence or two? So, you can personalize your card or album with lovely messages from the collection.

I hope you like it!

Make some beautiful projects with Bob n Betty papers and share with us on Facebook group Bob n Betty Buddies. And you can always purchase Bob n Betty products from our  Sales Buddies.

Have a nice day!

Valentine’s Cards by Niharika Gupta, feat. Caffe Romanza paper collection

Hi everyone!

I am sure you are all in your best creative spree with projects for Valentine’s day as it’s just around the corner! I would really love to see what you are making… specially if you are making it with this beautiful paper collection, Caffe Romanza!

Love comes in all shapes and sizes and colors! Isn’t it? It felt so amazing to work on love theme cards, in a completely unique color combination like this! To start with I decided to make two cards as an inspiration with these papers. After getting all soaked up in snow the other day, I wasn’t keeping very well, but the idea of making these cards cheered me up, and I love that they were super quick to make.

The cards measure 4.5” by 8” and I have used an off-white cardstock for the base. I have cut some elements from the paper pack to layer them with chipboards from Fabrika Decoru. A glittery pale yellow paper flower from Prima Marketing just added the oomph it needed. I love all the sentiments in the element sheet, but these two just caught me!

I hope you will like it.

As its snowing here, this week is being celebrated as “SportsLove” week and we have holidays in schools to enjoy the winter sports. So I am going to have an amazing Valentine week, hope you have one too!
Much thanks for stopping by!

Love, Niharika.

A love theme album designed by Sampada Srivastava, feat. Caffé Romanza paper collection

Hi Everyone

This is Sampada and I am back with this beautiful romance album. I loved making this album and once again these papers have stolen my heart.

Yes, I am talking about the “Caffe Romanza”, newly launched papers by Bob n Betty. Caffe Romanza is a set of double-sided papers in the rusty white, cobalt blue, and yellowish brown palette. It’s just perfect for your valentines projects and I am really happy that this time it is

not the usual red, black and pink colors, and Bob n Betty has come out with something really out of the box and has dared to think beyond red this valentine and I am proud of that.

It is said that there is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved. Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

Well If you have ever been in love than I am sure you can relate to these papers as it will take you back to your memories of endless conversations that you have had with your loved ones over a cup of coffee. Isn’t it true?

Well, I can relate…because for me it was not the love at first sight instead it was coffee at first sight and I met my soulmate at a café and that one coffee has led us to a lifetime of togetherness. So I had fun working with these papers and I am sure you would love it too..
now over to the pictures and  video flip through 🙂

A Handmade Calendar by Sampada Srivastava, feat. Roseate Paper Collection

Hi everyone..

This is Sampada with probably my last post for this year and to give a kick start to the coming year and to help get you guys fully prepared to take on 2019, I have this beautiful and very handy calendar which is made using Roseate Collection.

So to mention again, Roseate has 12 overwhelmingly amazing papers with little shabby yet floral designs and also you get motif sheet and lots of fussy cutting elements in the paper pack. Every time I use this collection, I get so carried away and end up using lots of fussy cut elements in this calendar as well. Trust me…each element is so beautiful in itself that it’s very hard to make choices.

So coming on to my project, this is a wall hanging calendar which has two sections, the first one is embellished with flowers adding to it some fussy cut elements frames etc giving it 3d look and the second part is having the months’ sheet on it.

Surely many of us use electronic calendars these days in our phones and find it very convenient with the click of few keys. But nothing beats the beauty of a handmade calendar. You can hang it in your craft room, gift it to your friends and family and I am sure they are going to love it…A perfect gift for this New Year.

I have made two sections in this wall hanging calendar but you can add one more as per your convenience and you can put pictures on that and change it with every passing month.

Now to make it handier I have made the month sheet magnetic and it is up to you how you want to store it. You can watch the video of how to change the months and how you can overlap all the months together and change each passing month sheet with the next coming month.

I would love to hear from you all and signing off by wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!!!

So, go on and try this beautiful collection and show your creativity. You can share your creative projects on Bob n Betty Buddies page on facebook.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs

Explosion Box Card by Niharika Gupta, feat. Roseate Paper Collection

Hi everyone,

I am back here today with my newest creation and probably the last post of this year. This place is totally filled with inspirations. You must have observed that in my last few projects. And here is one more inspired from the surroundings here.
Its winter, and not a only a season, its a celebration! People light up their houses, decorate it for Christmas, with snow on the roofs, and on the little plants, sides of the road, lights make everything feel so warm! It seems to be a different magical world all together.
This Explosion Box Card made with the very beautiful Roseate collection, seems to capture the beauty completely. I tried to emblematise a house on a cold winter evening here, all set up for celebrations.
Cutting the smallest flowers and leaves from the paper pack was so much fun!
Don’t forget to catch up on the small video in the end to see the beauty of the flickering light in the house. It can be turned on or off from the outside of the box card.
Just loved making it.  Its for someone here to save her Christmas memories… Awww, I am waiting to know from her how she likes it. Till then, i would love to hear from you how you liked it. Have a great winter and an amazing holiday season! Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!
Love, Niharika.

A Lampshade decoupaged by Niharika Gupta, feat. Roseate DecoPatch Papers

Hi friends,

It has been a long time since I came here with a post. A break somehow turned into in lengthy absence. And now that I have started to bring my focus back, I will come up with some interesting posts in the coming days.

Well, I feel you can never go wrong when you think about designing something for your own home. To give a quick recharge to my energy, I tried to experiment on something I had never tried before – Decoupage. I always struggle to think on something which is not a “Scrapbook”, but trying hands on this amazing  paper from Bob n Betty was super fun. I had this plain white Lampshade at home and I used the beautiful floral arrangements from the Roseate Decopatch collection.

These papers give an amazingly smooth finish without much effort. I really liked the outcome and now this little thing brightens my room in the most elegant way.

Much thanks for stopping by.

Love, Niharika.

Here I have used a 6 by 4 MDF box and covered it fully with the Decoupage paper. I am not a decoupage artist and I am not familiar with all the painting and pasting techniques of Decoupage but with these decoupage papers, you don’t really have to work hard. Anybody can Decoupage! And I enjoy doing it once in a while!

On the Inside, I have pasted the image that is fussy cut from the Decoupatch rice paper.

No Project of mine is complete without some flowers, so I created some coordinating Foamiran flowers for the top.

Mixed Media Layout by Tanya Cloete, feat. Roseate Paper Collection

Hello dear Bob n Betty friends.
Today I’m sharing a Mixed Media Layout featuring the gorgeous Roseate Collection. I have incorporated the matching decoupage papers into the layering. These decoupage papers are so pretty and so versatile.
Here are the instructions you may use to recreate such a project
1. Add some colour to the background on one of the sheets in the Roseate Collection using some white gesso and Impasto paints.
2. Add texture randomly using a stencil and white crackle texture paste.
3. Add paint splatters randomly over the page.
4. Cut a few die cut shapes from the collection sheets and decoupage papers to form the layering of the composition.
5. Emboss the chipboard pieces with embossing powders.
6. Fussy cut a few elements from the collection sheets.
7. Arrange the rest of the embellishments as per the picture or as you like.
8. Add some buttons and sequins for the finishing touch.
9. All done!
Thanks!
Kind Regards/Vriendelike Groete,
Tanya

Decoupaged Boxes by Deepal Shah, feat. ba-dastoor Decopatch Papers

Hello folks,
Diwali being around the corner, everyone must be busy with last minute preparations. I am sharing here the lid boxes which created with the amazing ba-dastoor papers to adorn my home for the festive season.
I have selected a set of two lid boxes for this project. After sanding the boxes thoroughly, I gessoed on the outer sides, whereas the insides I painted with brown maroon acrylic colour. After decoupaging the papers on the required sides, did some texturing and stencilling on the remaining sides. I have used gold, red and brown shades of acrylic colours for this project. After the desired result, varnished all over.
Totally loved the outcome and hope you’ll did too. These papers are perfect to add that little glamour and ethnic look to your decor this festive season.
Happy crafting,
Deepal Shah
