Easter Treat Baskets

Hello stampers! I made little Easter treats for the school kids.

I made them in pink ribbon and  yellow ribbon so the boys will not give me a funny look if I made them all in pink.

I filled the treats in a cello bags. That's the last of my tiny cello bags from Stampin'Up!.

The eggs was from a stamp set called Easter Blossom. Cute little eggs.

I used the Two Tags Bigz Die for the basket. I made a box to go in between two of the narrow tags to hold the treats. For the box I cut a piece of 4-3/4" x 4-3/4" card stock and score at 1-1/2" on all four sides. Easy! You can make them too.

Tea Time With Friends

Hello stampers! It has been awhile since I last blog. I made some stuff but forgot to take pictures of my creations and I don't have them anymore. (sad face)

I remember to take my tea party creations. I invited a few of the stay-at-home moms over yesterday to have tea. Their children were invited too as I have children myself. My kids would have been bored to death if it was only us ladies.

I made a little gift box with a brooch inside for each of the ladies. You can find the gift box tutorial here if you are interest in making one yourself. I made one extra box and brooch and I'm selling it in my husband's Etsy shop. You can get it there if you would like to buy it.

I made a tulle with lace trim brooch that match the box.

Here's the food table. I spend lesser time for this party than the Frozen party I did for my girls back in November. You can see the post here.

This was the table for my tea pots that I end up not using at all. The tea pots stayed on the table we were sitting at instead. I served 3 different tea and the moms loved it. They were all Christmas flavours. I know, it is not Spring tea flavour but they didn't care. Tea is tea.

I made this banner for the food table and moved it here after the party. It was kind of hard to take picture of it by the window where the food table was. I'm selling this banner on the Etsy shop also. You can see it here.

I love the 3 tier rack. I got it at Value Village for a cheap price. I don't remember how much it was.
I filled it with food and put some paper roses at the top tier because it is small to put anything on it. I probably could have put the little dessert I made. It will only fit 2 on there.

The kraft paper roses was made using the Spiral Flower Die. I made lots for the banner, the table, around the house and for the napkin rings.

I got the tea set from my mom. It is so pretty with the roses on them. There are only 6 tea cups and saucer to this set and it is missing a sugar bowl. I used one of the tea cup for the sugar. The cute spoon is so tiny. I think it is about 1/2 teaspoon size. Never really measure it.

Beautiful roses I got at a discount floral shop. The florist gave those white flowers for free. I was ecstatic to get them. I don't even know what they are called.

Valentine Candy Jar

Hello stampers! I decorated an extra jar left from the Frozen theme birthday party for my girls back in November. I made it into a Valentine one.

You can put anything in there. I have some white candies with red stripes on them. Perfect colour for Valentine.

I cut out a red glittery heart and mounted on a doily piece and adhere them to the jar. Made a "happy valentine's day" sentiment and adhere it to the front.

18th Birthday Invites

I made invitations for a teenage girl who will be turning 18 next month. 18 is a special age to Filipinos just like sweet 16 is special to the western culture. They have a big party to celebrate this special occasion. Almost as big as a wedding with over 100 people.

I made a box to hold the invites. They looked so cute! She knew exactly what she wanted so it was easy to make. It still took me awhile to make it though. Had to take lots of rests because of my back pain.

I used kraft treat bags as envelopes for the invites. Something different from the usual envelopes.

I do custom birthday and wedding invitations. Contact me for details.

Happy New Year

 I just want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! 2014 was a challenging year for me but God is good to me and my family. He blessed us with so many things that is beyond my human thinking. I'm looking forward to 2015 and see what God has for me as I faithfully serve and love Him more. I would like to blog more in 2015. 2014 I blog very little and that made me sad. The car accident a year ago stop me from do so. Something I love and enjoy doing but couldn't do much of.

Something small I gave to my friends as a "thank you" for helping me. A little note card and a crochet snowflake tie to a rock candy. I randomly stamped snowflakes and then added a snowflake sticker to one of the snowflakes. Stamped a "thank you" sentiment and the card is done. Easy to do.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful start in 2015!

Christmas Gift Boxes

Made some gift boxes filled with treats and a can of David's tea for the teachers for Christmas. I used the Punch Box Board to make these. They were tall boxes and the punch box board did not have the measurements for such tall box so I made them myself. I just used the scoring and punch part.

Frozen Theme Birthday Party

I finally got the chance to post this. It took awhile for me to upload the pictures because I have to wait for a computer to be available to be use.

This was my first time to do a theme party for my girls. I did a "FROZEN"theme. It was a lot of work but it was all worth it. Martin was so wonderful to allow me to do such thing. He paid for all the supplies and went around town with me to get them.

Martin did the invitations on the computer and printed out. I stamped snowflakes on them. Added a jewel to the middle of each big snowflakes to add bling to the card.

I made the "FROZEN" word in a blue glitter paper. I love the blue glitter paper. So pretty! Looks better in real person.

This was sweets buffet table. I didn't have the sufficent time to decorate so I was a little disappointed. I did my best to decorate anyway. It turned out nice though. Just not how envision it. I'm so thankful a friend came and helped me decorate. I couldn't have done it without her.

A "HAPPY BIRTHDAY FAITH AND HOPE" sign above the sweets buffet table. The banner was done on glitter paper using the pandent die with snowflakes from the Festive Fluries die.

The birthday girls made this garland to go in the front of the sweets buffet table.

I made all these sweets for the very first time except for the candies. I know. Crazy, eh? I searched the web to find recipes and videos on YouTube on how to make them. I learned quite a lot. Now I'm a pro at making sweets. Just kidding. There are still a lotto learn.

First time I learned to frost a cupcake like this. Made it swirly and pretty. It was actually quite easy to do. I normally just use a knife and slather frosting on top of the cupcakes. Very unattractive.

The meringue was a challenge to make but after a few tries it turned out perfect. Look pretty only for the party. Not going to turn out next time. I know it.

My sister helped me make these cake pops. She's so wonderful! Thanks Lisa!

These were chocolate sugar cookie snowflakes. It was tidious work putting the chocolates on the cookies. Don't know how to make them look nice. Sigh!

Table setting for all th young guests.

I crocheted the snowflakes for each of the drink bottles.

Got this snowflake tin from Costco and it was perfect for my centre piece. It came with the chocolates too! Yum!

Some die cut glittery snowflakes. They sat on top of tissue paper snowflakes.

One of our activities. Build a snowman out of marshmallows. "Do you want to build a snowman?"

Blue punch drink.

I made tutu loot bags out of felt, tulle and lace. I also crocheted snowflakes and added it to the front of the bag.

Here is a picture of the fleece scarves on my girls. I forgot to take a picture of the scarf with the bag together. The scarf goes with the loot bag. I crocheted a matching snowflakes for the scarve. Same pattern but thicker yarn. I sewed the dresses for the girls too. They really love it.

I don't know how to make a cake so I ordered 2 cakes from Dairy Queen. Frozen ice cream cake. Perfect for the theme party.

Thank you for stopping by and for reading this long post. Hope you enjoy reading as much as I enjoy sharing the picture with you. Have a greattach day! Happy Stamping!
