Erum's Beautiful Blog






Erum is from Karachi in Pakistan and has limited craft resources at hand - no 12x12 paper or punches, she also has no stamps and draws some of her images herself, but she is so resourceful and creative and adds a whole new meaning to "hand crafted" her cards literally ARE... She uses wrapping paper instead of 12x12, dyes her own paper which amazingly gives it a stunning effect, doodles and colours her paper, draws and cuts her own flowers - I am in awe at how her creations evolve. Her cards are so beautiful and colourful but the amount of work she has put into them is awesome. You must go visit Erum's blog HERE - it truly is a creative journey and I love her little stories as well!! A talented and Inspirational lady indeed!
