Merry Christmas !!

Ho Ho Ho!! Merry Christmas to all..Christmas is here, the season of spreading love and joy. It’s the most wonderful time of the year ..Here’s wishing you all from the full team of , May all the sweet magic of Christmas conspire to gladden your hearts and fill every desire.

My Today’s post is all about Christmas..So let me first show you what I have in my treasure this Christmas for you all.

Did you like it? Honestly I completely loved making it .Let me take you through some close ups followed by instructions.

Instructions:  For jar project and cupcake, I have used polymer clay and Thai clay by Craftsneed. Believe me its super soft and ideal for baking as well. While polymer clay needs to be baked , Thai clay is an air dry clay which doesn’t needs any baking process. Here I will describe how to work with both.

For Polymer clay – I took desired color and straight after opening the packet passed it through my pasta machine. The pasta machine has two rollers through which clay passes and extrudes out as a flat sheet. All pasta machines have roller settings  which helps in getting required thickness or thinness of the clay sheets. I passed my clay approximately four times through the machine to smooth en it up (This is also known as curing process)and get perfect finished texture. After that I started cutting it into desired shapes and sticking layers as and when required. As the clay is still not baked , it’s still sticky to hold layers without any glue.

 Once finished with the polymer clay embellishments, now we need to bake it to make it sturdy . To bake polymer clay creations, we need an oven that can be accurately programmed to generate temperatures between 215°F (102°C) to 325°F (163°C). This range is sufficient to bake any polymer clay item. You can use a regular oven, a toaster or a convection oven BUT not a microwave oven. I will still suggest if you are a first timer, try baking smaller pieces first. I have used parchment sheet under my baking objects. So preheat the oven and place the clay objects inside. Heating time depends on the thickness of the clay project. I baked for 30 minutes.

Polymer is quite soft when removed from the oven. It needs to be cooled completely to reach its final hardness. When polymer clay is cured correctly, the cooled pieces will be difficult to break, but if it is thin it might bend easily.

Thai clay: Now I will describe the process of Thai clay as well…rest all same till curing and sticking layers to clay, after that we need not to bake it. It is an air dry clay, so just leave it overnight to gain strength.

After my clay pieces were ready I stuck some pearl embellishments with the help of clear glue. I also did a small Christmas card with the help of Dies,stamps and much loved Zig colors and adding that snow effect with the help of snowflake paste.

I have put diamond dust in the jar first as base which will also hold my clay embellishments. I have not stuck my clay pieces to dust in the jar but I feel that can be done if needed.

Below is list of supplies I have used for this full project.

1           .    Glass jar, A small tray, pebbles
2           .    Polymer/Thai clay by Craftsneed : Red,Green,Orange,White and Black

Fairy Garden

Hello and welcome everyone.
Today I have made a DT project for craftsneedindia.blogspot.. Its my first post for it and I am bit nervous and excited too..

Today I am gonna take you to land of fairies. Yes you heard it right, Fairy Land. And I have its tutorial too. So sit back, relax and enjoy the tutorial.
Firstly, the final look of my project.

Instructions: Take a waste cello tape roll and color it Green.Now for base, take the inner diameter of the roll and fix that circular board inside it and glue it so that it wont come out. and paint it with same color from outside.

Now on to next step of making grass. Take a green colored paper and cut the strips from it in shape shown below:


I have taken 3 strips of A4 size. and for the first strip start sticking it to the inner wall of roll. And for the next layer, glue to the bottom tip of strip, vertically and not on sides.Then stick the strip vertically inside in the circular shape co-coordinating with the roll. You can make it as dense as you want.Now lets move on to main thing, that is Fairies and flowers. I have Stamped, colored and fussy cut few fairies and birds. The first image shows the stamped images. I used different shades to color all the fairies as I wanted it to be colorful. For this particular fairy, I used DI Frayed Burlap, tattered rose, Memento Tangelo, Lilac poises and Dandelion. I colored them using KOI water-brush.

You might notice, the fairy shown in the second pic is having a layered dress. I tried to give it a 3D look by adding dress layers to it. (hope the pic shows the effect).

 I made few different flowers from Iris paper available at

 The best part of this project, the secret message. I made a mini accordion fold card using card stock and Nakshatra designs paper available at

Pinned it with a matching U-pin, that also from CraftsNeed. I just loved this pin and the way it matches with my theme..

Now, one more way to hold secret message. See the pic below and you will understand all by yourself. 
One thing you should take note of that the color of card stock I chose is Green, as it matches with the grass and is not easily visible at first sight. So it does really keep secret.

Now, all fairies, flowers, birds, and messages are ready to go in the garden. but before that lets decorate the garden from outside too.
I have used a lace to adhere the border. 
and used the pink small flowers on side. and used few pearls to add some bling.
Now, start arranging all. This part can be done as per your wish. I started with the largest fairy standing at the backside. and placing them one by one and you are DONE !!

P.S. You are not sticking any fairies and flowers to the roll if you are keeping the hidden message below them. If you do so, your message won't come out and it will be hidden forever !!

I love the way fairy is putting her hand in the flower.
