A Birdhouse Table Lamp, designed by Jaanhvi Hinduja with Googly Woogly Paper Collection

Hello my lovely pals!

It was a lazy sunny morning, when my son saw someone fixing a birdhouse in the adjacent bungalow verandah.  He was amused having seen a tiny house and demanded one for himself :).  Well,  all of the toddler’s desires can’t be fulfilled, but this one did give me a crafty idea.  I too loved the birdhouse but wanted to escape maintaining one in my verandah! So,  i decided to make a bird house lamp for his room instead.  The newest release of Bob n Betty,  “Googly Woogly”,  gave colors to my imagination. The stack has lovely gender-neutral prints and colors that make it ideal, not only for baby record book but for a lot of baby shower and nursery decor projects.

It’s fun to have cheerful colors in a toddler’s room,  and green and yellow make a perfect color pallette as the kids outgrow the ‘pink’ and ‘blue’ age. So,  a safari theme table lamp in the shape of a bird house was a perfect choice for me.

I took a readymade MDF birdhouse and cut a 2.5″/2.5″ square out of the house base using my jigsaw cutter to make a hollow base for fixing a bulb. Next,  i cut another piece of MDF equal to the size of the base of the house and got a bulb holder fixed in this piece.  I made a hole in the backside of the house for the bulb wire to pass through and finally fixed the base having the bulb onto the house base with screws. Bulb can be changed by unscrewing the base.

The challenging part was now done and I began with painting and then decoupaging the birdhouse.  The stack has lovely fussy cut elements and notecards and i chose the monkey, the giraffe and the butterflies for my project.

Have a look how cute these animals make the birdhouse look!

My son was happy to have a cute birdhouse lamp for his room and so was I :).

Do leave your comments, how you liked this project and give it a try at leisure.

Love,
Jaanhvi

A Pregnancy Memory Keeper, designed by Niharika Gupta with Googly Woogly Paper Pack

Hi there,

Niharika this side, with one more inspiring project for you all… with the very new Googly Woogly paper pack launched by Bob n Betty….

A mother’s joy begins when one more life is stirring inside, when a tiny heartbeat is heard for the very first time, & a playful kick reminds that she is never alone…

Trust me, this paper pack collection is ‘the best’ you can chose to make your Pregnancy Memory Keeper or Pregnancy journals… perfect colors, and the elements sheet is to die for… I just loved the idea of circular calendar,  to mark the most important milestones during the precious nine months, have a closer look….

The mommy-to-be can record her secret hopes, feelings, her checkup dates, names she might like before even knowing if she has a princess or a handsome charmer in her belly, her to-do list, even her mood swings…. yes.. & you get that all at the tip of your scissors with this paper collection…

in this album, i have started with the 1st trimester page, follwed by 2nd & 3rd trimester pages, and it ends with the arrival of the baby page. As the gender of the baby is not known, i could use the neutral shades there to go with baby girl or boy pictures.. & for the decoration as well, the elements sheets has it all in baby boy, baby girl, and neutral gender theme….

I have fussy cut the hanging monkey, stars, welcome banner, the swan, and arranged them to have a perfect decoration …

I hope you like this sweet pregnancy memory keeper… do let me know if you use any of these ideas in your work, would really really love to hear from you.. 🙂

Happy crafting guys, & thanks for stopping by….

Lots of love,
Niharika

ALWAYS & FOREVER PAGE LAYOUT, designed by Tanya Cloete

Hello Scrappy Friends,

Tanya here with a Page Layout using Bob n Betty’s gorgeous “No One But You” Collection!

Once again I’ve used a matching colour cardstock as the base of my layout. I’ve trimmed one of the sheets (green pattern) in the collection pack to fit the cardstock sheet leaving a border.

I then trimmed another sheet (pink pattern) to fit on top and trimmed a piece off at the bottom so that the green pattern sheet can be visible.

I mixed some white paint and glitter with modeling paste and added that to the pink pattern sheet using a butterfly stencil.

The chipboard word (Always & Forever) is embossed with Ranger Rose Quartz and Bridal Tinsel Embossing Powder.

The circle chipboard frame has been inked with distress ink Worn Lipstick and Peeled Paint. A coat of glossy accents has been applied too. I’ve matted the frame with a sheet from the collection pack.

The pictures from the collection pack have been matted onto pink and green cardstock.

I then decorated the rest of the page with flowers, leaves, rhinestones and metal embellishments.

Hope you like this as much as I enjoyed making it!

Happy Scrapping!
Tanya

A Hot Air Balloon covered with butterflies, designed by Tanya Cloete

Hello Scrappy Friends,

Tanya here with a Butterfly Hot Air Balloon using Bob n Betty’s beautiful #LoveSpell Collection!

The inspiration behind creating this project was a picture i came across on Pinterest!

It is a hot air balloon, meticulously  covered with butterflies. I was extremely inspired by the beauty of this picture and knew I had to make it, in 3D of course 🙂

I cut the hot air balloon and box using my Silhouette and assembled accordingly. I decorated the box with flowers, leaves, ribbon and string.


I then cut 2 strips from chipboard and painted them white. This is used as the handle support to keep the ‘balloon’ section up.

I cut 200 butterflies all together using my Memory Box butterfly dies. The solid from the collection paper and the outline butterflies from black cardstock. I glued every black outline butterfly to the solid one and added a pink rhinestone to the centre of each.

I then adhered the butterflies to the ‘balloon’. I must say this was very time consuming but I am very pleased with the end result!

Hope you like this as much as I enjoyed making it!

Happy Scrapping!

A MINI MAILBOX WITH ENVELOPE ALBUM, DESIGNED BY TANYA CLOETE

Hello Scrappy Friends,

Tanya here with a Mini Mailbox and Envelope Album using Bob n Betty’s stunning “No One But You” paper collection!

I have cut the mailbox with stand using my Silhouette and assembled accordingly. I’ve placed this on a wooden canvas that has been painted with matching colours. I also added metal feet to the canvas.

The mailbox is decorated with lots of flowers, leaves, string, chipboard piece and metal embellishments.

The mailbox can open and on the inside you will find the envelope album.

These 6 envelopes were cut using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope punch board. The sheets were cut into 6×6 and scored on a 2 5/8” score line.

I have fussy cut a lot of word strips, tags and journaling pieces from the collection pack that have been placed on the inside of each envelope.

Photos can also be added to the envelopes.

Hope you like this as much as I enjoyed making it!

Happy Scrapping!

A Masculine Miniature Designed by Ayushi Aggarwal

Hey friends,

Arushi here, with another project designed with Bob n Betty’s “Voyager” paper collection.

Voyager is a travel theme paper pack and mostly carries a vintage colour tone which turns out to be apt for masculine projects, so I decided to make something on this line for my DT project this month.

Handmade miniatures are captivating the craft world completely. Hence, I too decided to try my hands on these cute, little paper craft creations.
Here is my take on a desktop décor miniature setup, it’s mainly a business cards holder in a masculine look. Let’s have a closer look…..

Hope you all liked this creation…do share your opinion 🙂

Love
Ayushi

LOVE IS THE CLOSEST THING TO MAGIC – Layout by Tanya Cloete

Hello Scrappy Friends,

Tanya here with a Page Layout using Bob n Betty’s beautiful #LoveSpell Collection!

Here we go…..

Using pink and white paint I lightly made splashes on the sheet using a paint brush. I then mixed some black and pink acrylic paint with modeling paste and added this to the sheet using the Tim Holtz Splatter stencil.

I cut square pieces from the sheets and layered them onto one another.

I have also painted 2 metal heart embellishments with black gesso and dry brushed them with metallic pink acrylic paint.

The chipboard pieces (hash tag and 2 circles) have been embossed with Ranger White Embossing Powder.

I fussy cut two of the circles (love and heart) in the collection pack and adhered them to the chipboard circles.

I used a chipboard frame and matted it with one of the sheets in the collection pack. A photo can be added.

I then decorated the page with some other embellishments and heart stickers.

I always like to use a matching colour cardstock as the base of my layout. I’ve trimmed one of the sheets in the collection pack to fit the cardstock sheet leaving a border.

Hope you like this as much as I enjoyed making it!

Happy Scrapping!

Shaker Elements designed by Ayushi Aggarwal

Hey Guys,

Hope you all had a colorful Holi..! Well, I’m having some great time playing with the minions…..are you too looking for some crafty adventures..?? then get ready to try something new.

I have something really cute and witty to share with you all, yess they are Minion themed shaker elements, designed with Bob n Betty’s latest release Ba-Ba-Banana. This is a decoupage specialty series, but to my surprise, these papers works so well with the cardstock too, I’m definitely going to experiment with other paper lines as well in this category.

Shaker cards are trending massively these days, and I too think that they never fail to delight, hence I absolutely love incorporating them in my creations.

So If you’ve never tried your hands on this technique, I hope you’ll be encouraged to try it after today’s post because they are so easy to make..! 🙂 🙂

Come lets have a look…..

I have designed a magic card too, don’t miss to check out its video..!

Hugs
Arushi
