GUEST BLOGGERS-DAY 5

Oopss,.blogger went down yesterday and spoiled all my plans,,grrrr,..now all the orders are confused for the guest bloggers post and i lost all the comments on the previous post,.Ok anyways happy that its restored today,so you will meet two guest bloggers tomorrow.

Today guest in my blog is ashmita fro 'Indian scrapper'Ahe specializes in vintage style and i love her dimensional cards a lot,.over to ashmita.

My name is Ashmita Das i am a trained Media Professional. But since i married an Army officer who gets transferred to a new place every once in a while i cannot have a regular job. So, to keep myself occupied every free moment i get i do crafts. I have always been an avid crafter but since i got married 4 years back i started to scrapbook and that is how my love affair with paper craft started. I love making cards as well as scrapbooks and also scrapbook mini albums. Beings an Indian by origin here the crafting has not boomed like in the other countries so most of the crafting equipments are not available here. We (other Indian crafters and me) mostly rely on etsy and ebay for our purchases but still things can be very expensive. But i make do and necessity being the mother of invention and also i believe creativity and talent and the zeal to make beautiful projects makes up for the absence of all else because i have the passion and love for it. I have attached a few of my projects where i have used ribbons. I have learned macramé and embroidery so i bring a lot of that into my paper crafting projects too. I am very fond of the distressed look and vintage style and most of my projects generally are inspired by them. There are so many things you can do with paper and ribbon and i love to constantly try out new techniques and ideas. I am self taught trying to accumulate knowledge from all the bloggers from across the globe and not to mention Google and YouTube.

Take a look at some of her dimensional n vintage card,..i am sure you will love it.
