Happy New Year 2013

Hello Friends,

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year that truly marks an exciting new beginning! 

New resolutions, new promises and new things to learn...

Thought of making a card with quilled roses, and as you can see below I am an absolute beginner in here is my first experiment with quilled roses.

Loved making these tiny roses with Quilled creations blooming roses.

Printed out the new year sentiment and embellished with a tiny stone.

Wishing you all a new beginning, Happy New Year....!!!

Marci with Heart Balloon, an Easel Card

Hi Friends,

How soon the time flies, it is the last week of the last month of year 2012.  Christmas and New year preparations and celebrations going on in full swing all around the world!!

It also means birthday celebrations in our family, I made this card for my sister, Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Priya !!!

One of my first Marci from La-La Land Crafts... (

 Tried to make an Easel Card, it looked complicated,  but once I got the hang of it, ended up making several in various shapes, will post them later.

I used the Copic markers for the main image and chalk colors for the background, which can hardly be seen, I wonder why?

Here is a closer look...

Hope you like the card,  do post your valuable comments, means a lot to me...
A Christmas card coming up tomorrow, till then...

Lil Bee's 'Lovely Spring' Kit

Lil Bee's 'Lovely Spring' Kit

Hi Friends,

Its been a while since I sat down to blog,  been a bit busy with moving into another apartment and arranging things all over again...

Got to play with Lil Bee's 'Lovely Spring' kit in between the chaos,  loved the bright colors and the stamps by Lawn Fawn, the Flutter By collection

Started off with a layout, with a very cute photo of my boys, a scenario I can't imagine now as they are older and absolutely hate hugging each other.

I am just a beginner in the layouts, so still experimenting....

For this card I thought of experimenting with the concept of using negative space, as I had already die-cut the flourishes off the green patterned paper, I used it as the centre part of the card, with some glitter to fill the negative space.  Bordered with Washi tape,  added a rose,  more flourishes,  a cute butterfly,  and the 'you inspire me' phrase, was pleased with the results.

Liquid pearls added some sheen to the card, hope you like it.

My third project, again using the 'you inspire me' Flutter By stamp, with a different color combination, this time using the lavender paper, a rose and the flourishes gave a neat look. the background was stamped all over with the Flutter By stamp, the border too was stamped and embossed.

The triple layered butterfly looks cute....

Hope you like the cards and the layout...
Thanks for passing by.....

Happy Birthday Mom

Mom's Birthday....

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday Mom...!!!! 

Every year, 1st May has been very special to our family, it is  Mom's birthday and also the day we used get our final results from school. And of course celebrations, with home made (mom-made) cakes and all the special foods....

This is my first attempt of making a layout, had an album ready from ages but couldn't fill the pages, so here I go...

Choosing the photographs was a very tough job and after a lot of contemplating, I decided on these three beautiful moments from my life.

This photo was taken in Bapatla (Andhra Pradesh), on 1st May 1993

Here is a closer look...

Love you Mom, hope you like my surprise....!!!
