Card – ThaHaan

There was a gift segment collaborated by the team of Glitz Vision during the end of May 2016. That was the first time ever I had decided to send a gift for someone I have never met before – ThaHaan. Yup. My two current favourite actors who portray the onscreen couple in THAPKI PYAAR KI. You can watch the video where the actors received my gifts here (I gave them both a polaroid camera each with this card below).

I used Got Sketch‘s Sketch 122 by Valerie Salmon. I just thought it was a simple yet pretty template to whip up. And what made it more satisfying was to see the actors’ appreciation that it was handmade. I love Jigyasa’s reaction the most. Haha!

The template didn’t instruct any embellishment for this section of the card. But I just felt that it would have looked too bare without… anything. So I just stuck in a few pearly dots on the top canvas.

card_018_2

That’s a pre-made cardboard flower I got off PopArtz. Finally am able to use it on something. Lol! I used some green lace and bloom lace for this section to line the sentiment. And since the card is addressed to the two onscreen couple, I decided to title the card with their couple name, “ThaHaan”. I guess that’s why both Manish and Jigyasa kept using this card to pose with the gifts at the photo session.

Those green and pink papers are again… leftovers. As scrapbookers, you know what I mean. No leftovers should be left wasted. They will come in handy at one point in our lives. Haha! The ‘Just For You’ is a wooden stamp I used from the set I used that my Mum bought me once.

 

12×12 – It’s A Thing Of Beauty

It’s been a while, and I finally did a page of Emma Watson. She is such a lovely looking young woman.

I used Got Sketch‘s Sketch 146 by Valerie Salmon. For the first time after a long time, I did not do a single ‘edging’ to any of the papers. Just simple trim and paste for all the cardstock — clean and neat.

The journaling section is an actual quote from Emma herself.

12x12_074_3

Yes, like I tweeted last week, I finally got to use these burlap flowers. Yay! They’ve been sitting there in my dump of art stock waiting to feel usable.

 

12×12 – Love Bugs

Yes, another ThaHaan creation. But going by facts, the picture is of AlBeera’s – Manish’s and Jigyasa’s previous tv show. Seriously, every ThaHaan fan is dying to watch the show. Too bad the production house, Zee Corporate is not cooperative enough.

I used Pencil Lines‘ Sketch 189 for this one. As mentioned, the photos are from their previous show together, CHORE TERA GAON BADA PYARA. Honestly saying, the 12 by 12 patterned paper was already so pretty with pre-made designs on it. So I try not to over-decorate the piece.

‘Love Bugs’ – yup. That was what my small brain could think of as a title. Seeing that the couple is at some garden, I figured why not make it garden-themed.

12x12_073_2

A simple cardstock sticker for an embellishment.

12x12_073_3

Paper-printed flowers, edged with a bit of chalk-ink to as a corner finish.

12x12_073_4

Leftover orange cardstock used for simple journaling. I have way too much of these orange leftovers. Just don’t have the heart to throw them yet.

 

Calendar – 2016 Thapki Pyar Ki

Another year coming to an end. Like I had tweeted back in October, I have plans of making my own 2016 desk calendar again. This time round, for my new favourite ship – ThaHaan. Of course, having doodled so many ThaHaan drawings it still is not enough for me. Thapki and Bihaan are my new favourite onscreen couple and eye candy… Yes. Having eye candies in front of your workstation in the office is a good thing. It relieves stress. And for 2016, I’ll have ThaHaan do that job for me.

And oh! Not that I’m being selfish this time round, but I will just be making one of these only. So please, don’t bother requesting me for one.

TH_2016calendar_1

Yes, the show is still on going on Colors Tv. The love story between the two protagonists hasn’t even properly started yet. When I was doing my 2015 Rangrasiya calendar, the love story between Rudra and Paro was already completing. Hence it was easy for me to pin point to my favourite moments and use them for the months’ photos.

In ThaHaan’s case, the choice is limited. I gave myself up to 26 December 2015’s episode to wait if there were any newer moments I could use for the calendar (almost wanted to use that ploughing scene, but eck!). I think whatever I have collated so far is good enough.

BRANDS USED

  • GBC

  • Canon
    – (item #PP-201) Photo Paper Plus Glossy II
    – (item #MP-101) Matte Photo Paper

TH_2016calendar_2

I didn’t spray paint my calendar’s stand this time. I think white is just fine for the theme. As tweeted 2 weeks ago, I was already starting on my photoshopping task with the months’ pieces… And yes! I still use the same old template from my Rangrasiya calendar. Hehe!

I used matte photo paper for the whole calendar, except the front cover. That, I used glossy photo paper of a 275 g/m2.

TH_2016calendar_3

Trimming the papers has to be done with a right amount of patience. Sure I cut a lot of papers for my scrapbooking, but with scrapbooking, you are allowed to cover up mistakes. But calendars… well, there’s no scope for that. Eventually, I ended up using a pen knife, long ruler and my cutting mat.

TH_2016calendar_4

Punching time! Yup! Another one of the risky attempts. Luckily, I had printed some extras as my binding machine did gave me some problems.

TH_2016calendar_5

Lastly, binding it up… and voila!

Below are the different months’ pages. Likewise, sorry, but I cannot allow larger views than the previews I’ve given below. I still prefer my calendars with big boxes so that I can write more (being the practical person that I am). Each page has its own line of dialogue delivered by one of the actors in that particular scene on display.

Cards – Mini Christmas gift cards

It’s the time of the year again… where a crafter can use up all her green and red scraps once again. Yes! It’s Christmas. Not that I celebrate this occasion but my colleagues do. It’s made almost compulsory that we exchange gifts in the office and hence this came about.

card_017_1

I made mini cards to attach to my wrapped presents; mainly to address and tell who they’re from. They only measure up to 10.4 cm by 7.4 cm.

card_017_2

Alas! Those were my only pair of golden bells left in stock. The remaining ones are of blue and pink. Eck! I tried making them as simple as possible. Almost stopped myself from chalking the edges of my sentiment, but… looks like I can’t stay away from my pigment inks.

card_017_3

This one noticeably has an extra punched border. And like I said earlier, I only had one pair of golden bell left. Thus I substituted it with a green button; tied with a golden string.
