Vacay in Cebu and Crafting with Sis

5:17:00 PM Venus and Luanne @ Sisters Craft Cafe 2 Comments

Hello to everyone! I'm back! What a wonderful weekend it has been for my family and I. We visited my sister Luanne and her family in Cebu City, and over a period of three days, we had fun! fun! fun! Sunday came (time flies so fast!!!) and we celebrated my nephew's 4th birthday at Portofino Beach Resort. I'm posting some snapshots.....

Loving the party atmosphere at the beach front

Fun at the beach... There's my son in the middle with his cousins beside him.

My sister LUANNE and I also had fun in her craft room. We are POSTING A GIVEAWAY soon!

My lovely sister shared her craft supplies and see what I've created!

Ride of Your Life

As I rummaged through my sister's paper scraps. I saw this super bright, rainbow printed paper. I love the colors and pattern so much that I couldn't help but make it as an inspiration to my card.
The craft paper - the brown paper- is also my current favorite paper!

Tip: To create this unique embellishment, I stamped the sentiment on the strip of foam then proceeded with decorating with a button.

Tip:  To create this tag, first, I stamped the image on the yellow foam. Then, I stamped images on 2 different papers and proceeded with paper piecing. The medallion is a scrap of project that my sis made, but decided she won't use it. I'm glad she saved it!

For this card, I followed the sketch by I Heart To Stamp for March

 Supplies for Ride of Your Life Card:
stamp and sentiment - Life is A Carnival by The Craft's Meow; Versafine ink, black; printed paper, craft paper (brown); foams; ribbons, buttons; hot glue, EK edge punch


I call these Easter Carrot Loots 
With Easter Sunday in mind, I though of making some treat bags for kids' Easter egg Hunting.

I bought along some digis to play with, and these cute Easter Bunnies are by The Crafty Pad Designs.
What's cool about this digi is that, the 3 bunnies come together and you can separate them if you want to have an individual image -just what I did.

The cones were made from a 12x12 paper which I divided equally into 4 pieces.
I rolled the papers into a cone and stuck the end with double-sided tape.
Put some goodies in a clear plastic bag and tie the opening with a coordinating ribbon. Then, insert it in the cone, and it's done!
