Home Improvement # 5: DIY Altered Frame Key Hanger


Finally, February.. my favorite month of the year is here. 🙂

I am here to share my inspiration for PPS February Challenge.

I made a Fame Key Hanger using some of my new Washis. I had seen a lot of pretty key holders on Pinterest and had always wanted to try making one of my own for my home. They are so much more prettier than the regular Key Hangers you get to buy from the market.

Its so simple to make.. and I insist all you guys to try one out yourself too. 🙂

I used two matching black and white Washis to wind them around the inner frame.. Don’t they make a lovely pattern together??

I then stuck some flowers cut out using my brand NEW Silhouette Cameo!! 😀 The house shaped chipboard is from the Dear Lizzy 5Th & Frolic collection.

I then used a grey cardstock for the background and topped them with the Pink Paislee Portfolio Alphabet Stickers and Dear Lizzy glitter thickers.

Now stick the inner frame with the grey cardstock..

and Voila! there you go! Your frame is ready. Now drill two or as many hooks as you want to the frame..

How cute is that?! 🙂

I hope this inspires you make one yourself..

Oh.. and did you notice our cute matching key chains! 🙂


Until next time..

Use your scraps – Handmade flowers

I am a big hoarder! I hoard even the tiniest bit of scrap left from a project.. I never have the heart to throw them away as I feel I might just need them someday. So I thought I’d share one way to use your scraps.

Flowers!! Handmade flowers are one of the best way to use your scraps. You can either randomly fussy cut them.. or just draw a shape on ur scraps and cut them. The best thing about a paper flower is that they never have to perfect. Sometimes even an imperfectly cut flower ends up looking prettier than a perfect one.

I made a layout using these flowers for Pretty Paper Studio.

A closer look at the flowers..

and the alphas.. (you’d know why.. once you see the tutorial) 🙂

Now on to the tutorial..

Until next time,

Happy crafting!!

Now to see what I made with the kit..

I’ve got three layouts to share with you today which I made using ‘A little Something’ scrapbooking making kit.  All extra supplies, such as inks etc. will be listed as and when I tell you more about each project.


Hehe.. yeah.. that’s me! I loved working with Amy Tan’s latest vibrant pattern papers included in the kit.


It’s the first time I used a rub-on and they are so easy to apply. I think they add instant detail and style to your project without muss or fuss.


I also sprayed some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Marigold over a doily to give my layout some depth.


This is my favorite layout of the lot. Not only cause of the fun pictures but also cause it took forever for me to stitch but I think its totally worth it!


I also punched out small circles and stitched around them. Oh! yes.. I sprayed some glimmer mist here you.. By now you know.. how much in love I am with them! *wink*


This one is a simple layout. I love this picture of Anup and I taken last year..


I just love the wood grain effect papers which are so popular right now in the scrapbooking world. Am so glad the kit had one of these..
