Project: Kirk & Yani's Wedding

I got a project for Kirk and Yani's wedding on November 11. Yep, it's 11-11-11. Cool. =)

A former officemate requested for me to do the cupcakes for her son's big day. I agreed and gave her some ideas. She decided to make it their giveaways, so it will be individually boxed with customized wrappers, ribbons and tags. And then she later decided to have 100 pieces. Yes I know, this is a one-man project, so help me God. =)

The wrappers will be more tedious as these are hand cut, so I figure to do these first. I immediately made a few wraps after I made the drafts, and here it is.

Yes, the wedding has violet-silver theme with the swirls. =)

And here are the drafts I made for the tags and the thanks you cards.

The mother of the groom, my client, was happy to see these, and that is really important.
What do you think? =)

I finally got the second load of supplies last week. After waiting for 3 weeks!

I received the 4 boxes of tags, along with the clear stamps, inkpads, a puncher and a bone folder. I was so excited to try everything but doesn't have the time. Just to give you a sneak peek of what I should be doing with these, here is one. So you better stay tuned. =)

Project: Joice's 1st Bday

A good friend of mine asked if I can make the cupcakes for her niece's 1st birthday. I gladly said yes, and offered my paper crafts. She had a Disney Princess theme and of course, the color pink! =) So here it is...

The cupcake toppers.
The venue doesn't have a cake stand, so I got one and dressed it up a bit.

The souvenir tags.

I tried making cupcake wrappers, though it was not really part of the orders. Just thought to try it out.
And it looks so cute! =)

I am still waiting for my friend to send me the photos of the party. I will surely share it with you here. =)

My First Projects - cupcake toppers

These are two of the very first projects I did. The one on top was for a friend's 25th birthday, who happens to love dogs and the color green. The other one was a friend's daughter's 3rd, Rapunzel as her theme.

And oh, by the way, I also did the cupcakes for both of them. =)


This is my first ever post on this blog. Excited and kind of overwhelmed. =)

Just to give you an overview, I will be sharing to you here all my crafts-related experience, successful or I just started this crafts project after being inspired by a lot of handmade craft items I have seen when I was searching for a cupcake topper. If you want to know how everything started, read on...

I have been baking since 4 years ago, but not really professionally. I bake for family and friends, and sometimes sell goodies to my officemates. I had this cupcakes order from a friend who wanted to have a personalized 'happy birthday' decorated on the cuppies. So I searched for local suppliers and all I saw were the usual candy toppers. Personally, I am not a very big fan of sweets. So if you ask me, yes, I take out the sweet toppers and sometimes the frosting itself and just eat the cake. I am guilty of that. So while I was on a search frenzy, I came up with an artistic idea as an alternative to sweet toppers. Yes, paper toppers! I surely have seen these somewhere, so I went 'googling' for the next hour or so. And the whole idea was born... =)

So there you go. It started with cupcake toppers, and then everything else followed. And hope you too follow me through this journey. Later! =)
