Rujim's Birthday Treat :)

Yesterday was Rujim's 9th birthday! It's almost a decade since I became mom and although life has not been smooth and perfect, I can say, with all my heart and soul that these 9 years are the happiest years of my life. Motherhood is the one role I love the most. I'm sure someone will react why I did not choose wifeyhood lol. 

Since Kuya (that's how we call Rujim, it means older brother in Filipino) does not like parties, I didn't plan anything. We thought we'd just have dinner or maybe plan for a staycation over the weekend. But the day before his birthday, I just suddenly picked up the phone and asked his teacher,  Ms. Yati if we could drop by and bring a cake and some treats to Rujim and his classmates. She said yes --- totally unexpected! Thank you Ms. Yati! :)

I had less than 24 hours to prepare. 

But such a short time is long enough if you have Sizzix! Which enabled me to make a cute mini party detail for Rujim.

It's a boy-themed snack pack! 

I used 3 different Sizzix dies: Loaf Pan (659873) and Kitchen Labels (659865) by Eileen Hull  and Homemade Alphabet (659566). The papers I used are from Echo Park Paper. 

With the help of my Bigshot, I diecut the loaf pan shapes with my sandwich in this order from bottom to top: cutting pad + Loaf Pan die  facing up + paper + crease pad.  

The diecuts are already scored so all I needed to do next was fold and attach the flaps with the mini attacher.

Then I took out the sweets and some white bags and started filling them up.

There are only a few kids in the class so lucky me! haha! I then tied each bag with a blue ribbon. 

For the label, I used this framelits from the Kitchen Labels set. You'll be needing a magnetic platform when cutting small shapes like these. The platform will prevent the little dies from falling all over the place. So the sandwich was: magnetic platform + cutting plate + paper + die facing down + another cutting plate. 

After cutting the labels, I matted it with a red cardstock and wrote "happy birthday RUJIM". 

The red framed the white label making it stand out!

These are very simple and so easy to make. Just perfect for mommies like us who got so many things on our plate but still want to make things special for our little ones :)

That's Kuya blowing his candles. I am not posting photos of his classmates because I don't have photo consent. Some parents may be sensitive about this :)  I baked the cake and decorated it with anything I could find at home. "Rujim" was diecut using the Homemade Alphabet  thinlits set.

I will be posting more about Kuya's birthday in my next posts :) Thanks for spending time with my here in my blog! Ciao! :)

3D Oven with Album... the smallest mini album in the world!

Hi! It's the last week of the month and I still have a lot to do in my list! Oh no! So this post will be super quick... sharing with you one cute project I just made... 

Using Eileen Hull’s 3D Oven Sizzix ScoreBoards XL Die and Kitchen Labels Sizzix Framelits Die set from her Vintage Kitchen collection, I made this miniature oven that can be used in many different ways. It can be a gift box, a party favor, a girl’s toy and room decor and it can even used as an appliance for a doll house!

Daily Bread Mini Album | Sizzix

I  always love reading inspirational books. Well guess what I have made one myself using
the Sizzix Sliced Bread die by Where Women Cook. It's just like a book full of inspirations. But this book is pretty. And it's a bread. Not. Haha!

Would you like to take a look at the inside pages?

You can change or add more inspirations, quotes and Bible verses. Just write it down on a pretty tag. Add clip it down to the album with clips, tapes or a stapler. 

Wanna know how I made it? Head over to Sizzix now for the complete tutorial. Don't forget to leave mesome love! :) 


Who is this monkey???

When I took the photos of my above project, he volunteered to be my assistant then became my model.

I DID NOT ask him to pose for me. He asked me to take his photo. LOL. 

He does look like he's having such a good time modelling haha! Fine with me, as long as he doesn't step on my precious book! LOL.

Okey, gotta go now. Don't forget the tutorial! See yah!
