Mini Canvas in PINK!

Hello crafty fellows!

I hope you are enjoying your winter holidays! Today I am posting a mini canvas that was presented as Christmas gift. The lady wanted something colorful with an name initial on it and this is what I ended up with.

I have used PCW word art file in here. You can find the link HERE. The set comes with 4 different texts. I just love the chalky effect of it!

First of all, I painted the mini canvas using Distress Paint in 'Picked Raspberry' then I stamped the canvas using one of the Tim Holtz Anonymous Stamp. Then added few flowers, name initial and PCW word art.

I hope you like today's post & have an amazing new year.

Configuration Box

Hello Crafty People!

I hope you're doing fab! I am here with a Configuration Book Shadow Box. It's a Tim Holtz Configuration Box which is about 6 x 9 x 1.25 inches and has 6 compartments.

So, firstly I covered the entire box using MME Pretty Things 6x6" cardstock. I adore this paper pad. It's so vintage and floraly. I simply can't get over these papers.

The paper was 6x6" so I overlapped two sheets and added a lace over it. Lace has been distressed by Walnut Stain Paint. Flowers are randomly picked from Prima and Recollection flowers packs.

Here comes my favorite part - THE INSIDE. Again, on the left I have overlapped two sheets covered the joined with the distressed lace. The sides of the box and edges of every cut out sheet is also distressed by the same paint.

I didn't cover it much, as the papers were itself gorgeous. So, just added few flowers and metal embellishments here and there.

I have used PCW word art file in there. You can find the link HERE. The set comes with 4 different texts. I just love this set because it almost goes with every project I make.

Framelits dies are by Sizzix. On the left 
compartment, hanging metal embellishment is by Prima. I love the little crown at the bottom. On the right, I went with the mini jar with silver glitter and text in it.

I hope you like today's post! See you next time!

Persian Times Personalized Frame

Hello to all!

This week I had great fun personalizing this Ikea frame and using PCW Word Art with it. 

First of all, I painted over the frame by Distress Paint. I used Antique Linen in here. It's such a sober color that goes with almost any bright and bold color. As it's a lighter tone, I decided to splash some brighter colors in form of floral embellishments. So, I went on and arranged some Prima and Recollection flowers and few leaves, butterfly and fancy frame die-cuts from Sizzix. 

I Love You Word Art as mentioned above is by PCW. You can find the file here! I absolutely loved the font! It went so well with the Sizzix die. To give it a shine and a dimensional look, I used glossy accents on top of it. And then it seemed just perfect!

I tried to keep purple has the main color so I attached a two-tone purple cardstock in the back which totally complemented purple flowers. 

Till next time Crafty Friends!

Till next time!

Configuration Box

Hello to November!

It's been so so long since I have last posted! Orders and studies have been keeping me busy. There are so many projects to be posted!!! I wish there were a bit more than 24 hours a day. Sigh! 

Anyway, I did this Configuration Box which is by Tim Holtz recently. This was my first time doing it and I had fun making it. Lets get into the details!

First of all, I painted the edges from inside out by Distress Paint 'Black Soot'. Now for the front I covered it with DCWV 'Old World Stack' paper. It was more like a brighter blue but I distressed with grey shade (forgot the color name!) and edges by Black Soot. Stamps are by Stampers Anonymous and flowers used in here are mixed few by Recollection, Prima and others are from a local store. For butterflies, I have used a Sizzix die and later distressed them in various colors. 

I love the word art stamp! It went well with the theme. 

Forgot to mention earlier, banner is a die-cut by Sizzix. 

Box sides are covered by using a different paper from the same DCWV pad. Edges are distressed in Black Soot. 

Now comes the inside part! Left side has been covered with the distress paper and then a personalized note is added on it. Why waste the space? When we have got plenty!

On the right, a lot of emblishments have been used as you can see. Metal, florals, die-cuts .. Literally everything! 

That cute mini envelope is a Bigz die by Sizzix which has note in it. Metal embellishments are just random ones which them from a local store. && for that mini jar I just added some silver glitter and added a stamped name tag and glued the cork.

Laces have been distress painted and the top and the bottom lace is a black card stock which have punched by Martha Stewart edge punch. 

That is it! It took about 2 days to complete this project as I am a impatient crafter. Haha! Hope you like it!

Personalized Gift Wrap

This time it's a Personalized Gift Wrap with PCW's Word Art. You can find the file here!

Firstly, I wrapped up the gift with the newspaper. I love wrapping it with newspaper it gives a chic look! Secondly, I pasted few flowers to give a warmer vibe as it was an wedding anniversary present. Then lastly, I took a twine and a red ribbon and tied them around the box and while making a bow of the red ribbon I made a hole into the PCW word art file which says 'You're Special'. It's a chalkboard art! And with that I took another tag which said 'Happy Anniversary' and tied them up. 

That was all it! It took hardly 10 minutes to wrap the gift. 

I hope you like today's post! Till next time!

Shabby Blues Canvas

Hello everyone!

I created this few weeks back using various of items. To start with, I have used Distress Paint in Weathered Wood to paint the canvas. I love the matte effect it gives! If you're into painting or mixed media projects, you have to use Distress Paints. They are just superb! 

Then I have used a felt design in white which I bought from a local store months ago and it was not coming in use until I started making this. At the beginning, I painted the felt by Distress Paint but it didn't came out right so at the end I just turned it around and used the original white side. 

After that, I topped it with few flowers by Recollections and die-cuts which are by Sizzix. I cut the small part of black wire, started rolling it and stopped when I came across just like what I wanted it to be. Later I filled the tiny jar with some silver glitter and printed out 'live' for it.  

I loved how it turned out! I was pretty with the outcome. 

Let me know what do you think about my project!

Fuchsia Floret Wooden Frame

Hello again!

I am trilled to share this project with you all. This was the very first altered frame I did. I had this wooden frame since 5 or more years and its texture was getting darker and it started to look unclean. So, one day I thought why not I alter it and this is what I came out with.

Let's go through the products what I have used in here..

Firstly, I covered the entire frame with Distress Paint. I used Antique Linen in here to give a neutral look. Then I embellished it with various flowers. Few are from Prima Marketing and Recollections and rest I bought from a random store. Die-cuts are by Sizzix and metal corner is by Tim Holtz. 

Secondly. instead of adding a plain paper. I took a pattern paper from DCWV Old World Stack and attached a twine in a twisted manner. Next I took a mini clip distressed it with the same paint to match it with the frame. 

Lastly, I added a Photo Mat and a PCW Chalkboard Word Art

This way you can frame your favorite photos in style and make them last a lifetime.

I hope you enjoyed my post! See you next time!

By The Yellow Sand Wooden Frame

Howdy Folks!

Hope you all are well! It's been a bit late since I last posted. I have been so busy with my projects that I wasn't able to post regularly. Anyway, I thought of running a series on Altered Frames. Each day for about 4 days I would be posting a new Altered Frame. However, I already have posted one on 5th. You can check out that here

At first, I distressed the complete frame by Distress Paint. Here I have used 'Tumbled Glass'. Followed with some embellishments by Recollections, Prima Marketing and Tim Holtz. Those shiny leaves are made of plastic. It somewhat gives a aluminum finish. A little while back I purchased these from a sewing store in Riyadh. I was surprised to see the variety  they had. So I went on and purchased in various colors and shapes. 

Then I took a pattern paper from DCWV Fresh Floral Stack and secured the twine. 

In the end I added a mini clip and a photo mat.

Do let me know how did you like it!

Framed Memories Wooden Frame

Hello October!

My post was getting delayed due to severe work load. I am literally swamped with work!

SO-OOO! Here comes my newest made product - Personalized Photo Hanger! I made 5 of these! LOL! No kidding! I simply loved the idea! Rather than putting up a picture in a simple wooden frame why not do it with style. 

Here is a close-up of the flowers. They are by Michaels and Recollections. 

Looking forward for your feedback!

Brightest Hue Altered Box

Here's another altered box which I did recently! I have covered lid with a 'Old World Stack' DCWV cardstock and distressed and stenciled the rest of the box.

I have put an oval frame in creamy color. I have recently purchased this framelit set and I have been using on every other project I have been making nowadays. OBSESSED! Next I have arranged few silver leave stems and dull gold butterfly die-cuts and paper flowers on to the lid. I felt something was missing so added a rusty looking vintage key. I loved how it completed the whole thing!

Embellishments are by Tim Holtz and Recollection and die-cuts of leave stems and butterfly are of course by Sizzix.  

Till next time!

Tangerine Blown Altered Box


I am super excited to share my first post for PCW Blog today with all of you. I chose Roses Two Double cutting file but as I don't own a electronic cutting machine. I have used my Sizzix BigShot which is a manual cutting machine to die-cut the image in oval. Just to let you know the files listed on PCW website can not only be used as a cutting file but you can even cut them by scissors or use a manual cutting machine and you can still create amazing products.

I have distressed the whole box in a single tone and then stenciled with the a bit darker shade. I have added an oval die-cut in the middle and embellished the two round corners with some paper flowers.

Butterflies and label die-cuts are by Sizzix. I have used 'Wild Honey' for distressing the butterflies.  

To add some bling, I have added silver rhinestones on the edge of the box cover.

For coloring the image I have used the following Distress Markers.. 
  • Aged Mahogany
  • Victorian Velvet
  • Peeled Paint
  • Shabby Shutters
  • Wild Honey
  • Scattered Straw
Did you like the end-result? Let me know in your comments!
