Stamping Shack challenge

Hi everyone! It’s been a quiet week here on my blog nook huh? I’ve been busy around work and with the  preparation for this Saturday’s holiday bazaar. Can’t pass this day though to let you know of what’s new at the Stamping Shack

Anyhow, on to my project this week is this very lovely digistamp called Cupcake Chef Daisy which I used as the main character for my birthday gift tag. The image can be bought here at the Stamping Shack  store. You can visit the blog too to join in this month’s first challenge with a theme “Anything Goes” and check out my other co-designers creativity.

The challenge will run from 8am GMT today, 15th November until 8am GMT on 29th November.

The winners will be announced at the Stamping Shack blog at 8pm GMT  29th November. Prizes are at stake for the winners so go check out the blog for additional details.

For my Cupcake Daisy tag, I colored her with watercolor pencils, cut the image from the print then did another print of the same image on a pattern paper. The pattern paper enable me to cut her chef uniform. As for the background tag, I stamped it with polka dot bg stamp from Paper Smooches, Geo Graphic.

This red tag is just fit for the white paper pouch where I packed the small gift for a little girl chef.

Now head over to Stamping Shack blog for more inspiration.

Crayon roll

This is part of the cowboy party detail of the previous post. I made the crayon roll as favor gifts, packaged & tagged nicely for the kids to enjoy. I enjoy making these.. as you can see.

Here is what it looks like.

Cowboy party

I love to create handmade items and gifts and I created this blog to document my works.

Last weekend, I attended my godson Atreo’s first birthday party. I helped my friend (Atreo’s mom) to plan the decors and other related party details to use for a cowboy birthday. The planning took some time as I only sqeezed my free time to do the things needed for the party. We came up with a crayon rolls as favor gifts just perfect for the kids to use even after the party is over.

I sew more than 35 piece of rolls for more than a month! And I handmade the names of each kid attending the party using a diecut machine & dies from Papertreyink.

Here are some of the party details photos and of course the the roll. Love doing these things. Crayons can fit perfectly in here but I put colored pencils as an option.

For the decors, I made the gift tags, party invitations, sewn banner greetings, table flag banners, labels, cupcake toppers and moustache for the photo booth.

Warning: a lot of photos in this post.
