LightingUpLives: Token of Thanks from Pepsi Pakistan

This is a quick post to share a gift I received from Pepsi Pakistan, as a token of thanks, for supporting the LightingUpLives initiative.
LightingUpLives, as the name implies, is an effort to bring light to electricity deprived (underprivileged) areas. Pepsi bottles have been transformed into light bulbs, which run on solar power. You can learn more about the initiative by visiting PepsiPk or viewing the campaign video.

It was a wonderful surprise! Thank you Pepsi Pakistan.

Precious Documented

Hello hello!

With Eid right around the corner, our theme for this months challenge is "Celebration." So, I've created a book, with tons of pockets, so you can document your celebrated moments in it; Precious Documented! The idea behind it was to create a book in which you can keep the eidi, and store some memories too. 

I've made the most of the supplies included in my gorgeous kit, a detailed review of which can be found under Happy Mail! ACDT Kit- Sweet Paris. The cover is decorated with resin flowers, some diecuts, and thickers, which were inked and coated with glossy accents.

 The rounded spine is decorated with some ribbon, charm, and beads.  On the inside, each page of the book consists of pockets, and magnetized flaps.

The above is a picture of the first page, with all the tags and pockets in place, and below is the same page once the pockets have been opened out and tags removed.

The entire length of the second page is a pocket for keeping a large tag, or money  (eidi).
The rest of the pages follow the same pattern with slight variations

So hope you enjoyed it! 

List of supplies follow: 
Distress ink - Gathered Twigs
Chipboard Bird diecuts
Prima chipboard buttons
Black cardstock
Beads (white and gold drop)

Happy Mail! ACDT Kit - Sweet Paris

It was a happy happy day for me, alhumdolillah -- the first day of Ramadan, followed by the arrival of my DT Kit -- I was overjoyed!
[incase you are wondering, Yes! I schedule. = D]

Unlike my previous DT posts, I'm sharing my kit separately this time because I fell in love with the kit, the minute I set my eyes on it. (and the last part actually rhymed!)

So first up, is the awesome paper collection:
Yes, this is one of those stacks which the "picture" fails to describe in "a thousand words". These papers are gorgeous! If you like light colors, shabby chic style, then you will definitely love this collection. It's the Trimcraft Dovecraft Sweet Paris Paper Pack; 36 sheets in a pack - 3 sheets of each design.

Next, are the complimenting embellishments from the same collection.
Beautiful set of 30 paper blooms and leaves, a pack of resin flowers, and a set of 8 metal Eiffel tower charms.

I loved the texture of the blooms and leaves; this isn't just die cut paper, it feels a lot heavier. The edges seemed inked, and the embossed "veins" make them look so real! If you are the type of person who doesn't like spending too much time adding details to flowers, then these are your thing, for sure. The blooms are about 3.5" in diameter, while the leaves are 2.75" long, and about 1 5/8" wide, at the broadest.

The resin flowers are equally beautiful, with fine details. Usually, centers of resin flowers appear to be a bit smudgy, but these ones are neat, with each petal clearly visible. The pack contains five color sets, with three flowers in each set. The largest flower is about .75" in diameter, while the smallest is a little under 0.5". Each flower has a thick foam backing, with a very strong bond, making them super easy to stick on.

Last, but certainly not the least, the charming charms! Each Eiffel tower is about an inch tall, and has an embossed criss-cross pattern on it.

There are more elements from this collection (doilies, frames, and wooden elements) which you can find at the Artful Crafting webstore.
