Blog Hop - Remya Ramachandran

Welcome friends to our last DT reveal today!

This is Rashmi, here to introduce  Remya to the design team.

Remya, an engineer by profession quit her IT job to enjoy motherhood & started dedicating her spare time to her long lost love - crafting, painting & sketching! She entered the world of paper crafting through quilling in 2014 & since then has been playing around with quilling, decoupage & mixed media. She loves experimenting & exploring products & related techniques.


Over to Remya now.

Fellow Crafters! Good Morning!

I am super excited & proud to be engaged into the Design Team of Itsy Bitsy. Thank you Rashmi & Tanvi. With the wide range of products available at Itsy Bitsy, you would be spoiled by the choices around. Since my early days of crafting, this has been my go to shop for variety of crafty things. I consider it a privilege to share this platform with some stalwarts of Crafting under the umbrella of Itsy Bitsy.

This is my first post here & is a part of the sizzix bloghop.
You can find all the details of the blog hop here.

Who does not want a repository for all of the things that interest and inspire you – something that’s handy where you could engrave your memories. A journal is the answer. If it’s one which is made by your own hands, it becomes very special for you!

Today, we are going to make a lovely journal to jot down your memorier & store pictures of you & your loved ones. We would also learn to use "We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile" & its buddy "Eyelets" which would give an aesthetic look for your journal.
A few words on We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile. Its a very convenient & easy to handle tool. With this you can punch holes of various diameters depending on the product you choose. Convenient rulers are present so you can figure out exactly where you want to punch the hole. 

You can use it to punch through - Paper and Card stock, thick chipboards, leather, thin tins & much more.

                                  Here is the journal I made -
