Magnolia Mini World Card Fronts to bring to CHA

Good morning everyone. Today I am off to LA with my family for a week. During this time, I will spend sometimes in CHA in Anaheim. I am very excited as this will be my first time to attend CHA and I hope to see you there.

I am sharing with you some card fronts that I am bringing to CHA today. I've been extremely busy for this month and tried to make as many projects using all my free times. I finished these four card fronts all in one evening, so you can imagine how rush I was, lol

Here are the card fronts I finished in one evening.

The Mini Chicken Tilda card front

The Mini Birthday Tilda card front

That's all I have to share with you today. I sure will take lots of pictures if I get a chance at the CHA. Will share some of the pictures with you soon :o)

Valentine's Day - Air Dry Clay Box Favor or Treat Boxes

Good morning everyone. Today I am so excited to show you some fun favor boxes I did from the inspiration of Linda's Deco Den Post. I had no idea what is 'deco den' until watching Linda's tut. After checking out her cool tutorial clip, I thought 'wow, how fun! I got to try it'. So I stamped out a Mini Winter Tilda of the Sweet Christmas Dream Collection from Magnolia-licious. I quickly decorated and couldn't believe the short time it took me. So quick and I even forgot to give Tilda some blush on her cheek, hehe. Then the next day, I did two more (without an image) on some spare moment.

I think I should have cut out the image since the image was a bit too big with the die cut. Next time when I get more time, I will cute out the Magnolia images and try it again.

Since I am leaving in a few days to LA, I thought this will make a great little goodies to bring with me to some of the girls there, so I decided to do more. Thanks to my husband to help filling the 'cream' for me. Between himself and I, we did 6 boxes in an evening. I wish I would have more time, so I can do a better job :o)

Here are the boxes I did (with my husband's help on the cream)

I put some Kisses chocolate inside

I hope you will check out Linda's blog to see her wonderful tutorial and have a try on this. It's not only a quick project, but I had a lot of fun doing it. Thank you for stopping by and will see you soon :o)

Cake Centerpieces Gift Idea for wedding and other occasions

Good morning and as I mentioned from my last post, I would like to share some cake centerpieces I made to share with you. I couldn't think of a cake top on these pieces, however, on one of them, I made a mini card using the mini Tilda with Hawaii Flower and mini Edwin with Butterfly from Magnolia-licious.

Here are the three cake centerpieces I made lately

Here is the white on white cake and I borrow this cute cake top from my daughter for this picture. She told me I can keep it :o)

Back view of the cake and bottom of this cake is a box. You can store the cake top inside or whatever treasure you wish to keep.

Here is the an all occasion cake. Each of three layer lids can be opened, so the cake has 3 boxes to store goodies.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you like these cakes. See you soon :o)
