Money Envelopes 2011

27 Dec

These were the Christmas money envelopes I made this year, with the help of course my Silhouette SD machine.

I used the money envelope I bought from the silhouette online store, but I modified it to fit the Philippine Peso bills (1000, 100, and 50 denominations) because the envelope’s measurement is for the $5 bill.

Additional shapes:

Hello Kitty Tin Can

25 Nov

I made this personalized Hello Kitty tin can as a going-away present to an officemate/friend. I was so glad that she liked it. She’s also a Hello Kitty fan like me. Actually, she’s more into Hello Kitty than I am. She really is addicted to the world’s famous cat! 🙂

Made these little coffin treat boxes from my Silhouette SD machine. I gave these to the kids in the office during our Trick or Treatlast October 28. They were a hit not only to the kids but to my colleagues as well. So cute! 🙂

Hello Kitty Die-cuts

24 Oct

A friend requested me to make Hello Kitty die-cuts to be used for her dear daughter’s birthday invitations. I used the Sizzlits and Sizzix Originals Hello Kitty Sitting with Bow dies to make 20 big and 30 pieces of the kitties. Whew! Making the die-cuts sure needs a lot of time and patience. But in the end, the output just made me and my friend happy.

GWEN’s 7th Birthday (Outing at Water Camp)

23 Oct
Another overdue post...

* September 18, 2011

The Husband and I initially planned for a big and grand party to celebrate our dear daughter’s 7th birthday. I psyched myself of being a party planner once again. I already planned the theme and the design of the invitations that I was supposed to make personally. Seeing that there would be lots of things to do and to plan, the Husband half-seriously asked the little girl if she’d rather receive a gift from us which would be something she really wished for and/or liked very much, and not have a big party at all. Amazingly, dear daughter agreed. When we asked if it’s really okay with her, she said that it is and she’d already be happy with just the gift. Awwww! isn’t she sweet? I felt that my baby is so mature.

Since there wouldn’t be a party anymore, the Husband and I decided to have an outing on her birthday, with cakes and banners and loot bags for her cousins, just so she could feel that we celebrated her birthday.

So we invited my side of the family, and we went swimming at Water Camp Resort in Kawit, Cavite. The travel to the resort was only 15 minutes because we went via the new Cavitex highway. There were lots of food prepared by my mother. We rented 2 rooms and a cottage in the resort so we were comfortable. I bought a cake and prepared a birthday banner and loot bags. I let the kids sang the Happy Birthday song first, then Gwen blew her candle. I really could tell that she liked it a lot. Afterwards, the kids ate and then went off swimming.

The resort had a lot of changes from the last time we were there. Another big swimming pool was added and of course, our new favorite – the Wave Pool! Oh we had a lot of fun there. The kids really loved it and they kept on coming back.

Before we went home, Gwen handed her lootbags to her cousins, and let each of them get a Squinkie ball from her Squinkie Gumball machine. They had a fun getting their prizes from a little ball.

At home, Gwen opened her remaining gifts from us. 🙂

Happy 7th Birthday, Gwen! 🙂
