30th birthday flip book!!

Hey guys,

Sharing the circle flip book I made for a friend on request.. it is her husband's 30th birthday and she wanted it to be special.. I think more so she wants to reinforce the fact that he is turning 30.. hehe.. devilish female minds I tell you.. We can think of dubious things and get away with it...

I made a circle flip book album for her... I love making circle flip book.. totally amazing way to incorporate a lot of elements and the size can be manipulated according to our wish.. My circle flip books are BIG.. i used a dinner plate to trace the circle and cut it out so you can imagine how big they are... :D

I won't ramble much... will just show the pics... way too hot... Phew.. the heat's been a killer and a total mood spoiler...

Finally a pic of the father baby duo and a 3*3 mini with an envelope... :D

Birthday exploding box!

Hi guys,

Happy Sunday... What plans for the day?? I am gonna relax.. I have been breaking my back over a lot of orders... Phew..!!

I made an exploding box on custom order for the client's fiance.. It was really challenging.. Male card.. not my forte.. I somehow always have an urge to add pink, flowers, butterflies, bling, etc.. Mind you though.. I did add flowers.. Lots of it.. *grin*

Exploding boxes are a superb way to either showcase pictures or just keep writing mush.. Some people (including me) love writing a lot of mush.. It's just a way to express our feelings.. Aren't our handmade cards supposed to do just that...

Anyways... Enough of rambling.. here goes... I really need to learn how to do a  video... all my posts are now becoming way too picture heavy....

That's the entire card for you.. Way too many pictures I know.. I promise to try a video the next time.. I hope the recipient and my customer both like it.. Personally.. I love the cake and the box really explodes.. I wish I could show it to you guys in a video, the way the flaps fall...
