CraftyJC Challenge #13: An Inspiration from Avni

Hi all! Here is the 3rd and the last inspiration for CraftyJC Challenge #13 - Something New.
We have the talented Avni with us showcasing her unique project.
"Hiya ladies, This is Avni from Bangalore. I live here with my DH and 2 little boys. Life is very busy out here. So, taking out some time for my passion is really an achievement:) and my achievement found a new level when I won at Crafty JC!

I have selected a 'new home' theme for this month. I upcycled a wallet box for this and tried to make a miniature house. I don't have a particular style of crafting yet, but I always like to put some deep thoughts to projects and try to implement it upto my max limits. Everything here is almost hand-cut except for those wavy line stickers and flowers.  Hope this will inspire you enought to take part in the challenge!" 

Such a lovley idea to upcycle a wallet box and to use the inside of it too, so wisely!
So peeps, hop on to Avni's blog now and leave some love!
Looking forward to your participation in CJC#13.

CraftyJC Challenge #13: An Inspiration from Kavitha

Hi! Here is our second inspiration for CJC#13, from the person who needs no introduction: Kavitha!
She is known for her distinct style and impeccable projects. Here you go...
"Hi, I am Kavitha here today to share my inspiration for the current challenge "Something New". As soon as I started thinking for the project, the phrase "Everyday is a new beginning: Celebrate it" is the first thing that came to my mind. So keeping that as focal point I created a wall hanging.
I  have used a mount board as the base, covered it with pattern papers and decorated it with lots of flowers and butterflies.. pretty simple for me ..he he. This is based on the inspiration picture this week from the shabby room. I loved the branches, butterflies and the colors in the picture and I have incorporated it in my project. The size is 7 by 10 inches, but still find it hard to find place for all my embellishments, lolz. The letters and the butterfly are cut with silhouette and all the other things are from my stash.

Hope you got inspired with my project n do play along this month :))"

What an awesome inspiration! Do hop on to Kavitha's blog and leave some love!

And what are you waiting for? Just get going with your projects and play along.

CraftyJC Challenge #13: An Inspiration from Dr. Pritesh

Hello everyone!

Today we present our first inspiration for CraftyJC Challenge #13 - Something New. We have with us the very talented Dr. Pritesh who has carved a niche for herself in the blogland with her lovely quilling work.
Glad to have her with us today. Over to her...

"Hi! I am Pritesh and a first time Guest Designer on Crafty JC. When given the theme New Year, I could only think of "cool" colours, being here, surrounded by snow. The first colours that come to the mind are blue and silver. Blue for the bluish hue around because of all the snow and silver because of snow sparkling when those occasional sun-rays fall on the snow. Once a theme like New Year came to me, I couldn't resist but try a project using my most recent acquisition in crafting - Quilling. I am relatively new to quilling and I hope this project inspires you too to pick up paper strips and just roll, roll, roll........

The project is made in one of my favourite styles of quilling - dual colour combination. The 2012 is filled with another favourite - beehive technique (that I seem to have fallen in love with). I hope to be able to soon print a 2012 calendar and attach it to this project. I wish all the participants in the challenge luck and hope that 2012 brings in a lot of positivity and energy in your lives.

Season's greetings & hugs,
 - Pritesh"
Now isn't this such a breathtaking creation!! I totally adore it. So folks, do hop on to Dr. Pritesh's blog to check out more of her wonderful work and the tutorials that she shares with us from time to time.
