Photo Album for a Baby Girl

Hi friends,

As I promised yesterday, this is the post about the album I made for a baby girl. Zutter has made me addicted to make albums. Hehehe. This is an album for Aloisa's mother. She just delivered her pretty baby last month. She ever learned how to make a photo album from an ex wedding invitation. So, I pressume she knows what to do with this album. Ok, let's take a look at these pictures.

This is the front cover.

 These are the insides. I only managed to insert 8 pages. These, I hope, can accommodate pictures month by month of the baby.

 These are the embellishments to be used in the album Just cut them one by one and adhere them on each page. Easy does it, right?

I hope Maia, Aloisa's mom, will be happy to receive this and take the "free" time to complete this album along one year. 

I shall be back with a photo album for a baby boy.. ;D

Have a nice day, my friends. 


It's been long time..

Hi friends, me again.

I suddenly wanted to check my Multiply account. And when I checked the first time I did this Multiply, I was amazed. I started that account 6 years ago in May. You can check here. Then I clicked the 'Blog', and found that 4 years ago I promised myself for opening the craft gallery in July 2008. Click here. Hey, where have I been? The craft gallery is already there, but it's only certain people know about it. Yes, I haven't done any publication or marketing. I need someone who is capable for it. I think I am ideas producer as well as the executor. Activities by activities came. The teaching across this nation as well as teaching at school and accomplishing customer's orders, really have made me forget that this craft gallery should be open for public. Ok, then, I need to "arrange" myself (read: time) again for this purpose. Oh, 4 years... How can I forget my own promise?

Coloring Album

Hi friends,

Have a pleasant start of the week.. 

Do you remember my last post? I went to Jakarta for a short break and celebrated my Mom's birthday. Before going, my youngest asked me to make a coloring book with Hello Kitty pictures on each page. She loves HK images. So I searched on the internet and found some pictures of HK. I printed them on white card stocks. Then I made the front and back cover of the album. They are made of thick card stock. Surely it will make the coloring so stable.

The front cover. I stamped her name on it.

 One of the adorable pictures. Selin also wishes to have this pair of roller skater. (later, young girl..) 

     Selin colored the images with coloring pencils. Her elder sister, Sisi, helped her. Sisi is a student in Global Art, a place for coloring and drawing. I think the coloring of Global Art's students is predictable. They do some layering in coloring images. ;D

This is the back cover.

It is so much fun to make any albums. Zutter really helps sooooooo much.. I'll be back with another albums tomorrow. See you..


Eid Mubarak Holiday

Hello friends,

Well..well.. Holiday took my days away.. Lol.. It was Idul Fitri or Eid Mubarak holiday. I don't celebrate it, but, I love holiday... Who doesn't? 

Anyway, I had to do all the chores at home. And finally had a short break in Jakarta, where I met my mother. Luckily, my brother also came from Pakistan, a country where he's working as an officer in UN (WFP). So really glad to meet the whole family. It was also my Mom's birthday, on 23rd. She's 73 and still looks younger than her age, and is still amazing. I made this "cake" for her. She was surprised looking at the cake. 

I made these slices of cake in my craft room. But the flowers, I made them just a night before the birthday. I gave these slices of cake to a gift shop in one of the malls in Jakarta, as a sample. I'll reveal the secret later in September.. ;D

I also made another slices of cake. Let's see the comparison between my "cake" and the cake we can eat.

Hehe, the one on the left was so yummy to look at (only), where the one on the right was sooooo yummy in our mouth that we didn't leave any bites of it. It's called "Devil Chocolate" cake. It's tremendously delicious..

I returned yesterday from Jakarta, fully charged.. ;D  (..and of course, also full of paper pads that I bought.. hehe..)

Ok, then. I'll be back with the album later.. See ya..

I just managed my time to go over the blogs that I really adore. I came to Susan Raihala's blog, and scrolled down and found this challenge OLW 99. It's so much fun. One layer with the inspiration from the ones she gave us.

This has inspired me:

Then I made this card:

I feel good, making this one layer card again, after so long... I'm still impressed with Susan's dedication to make one layer card. So simple and easy, moreover, it never consumes too much time to make one.
Join the challenge, and have fun, friends..

Birthday Cakes

Hi friends,

Yesterday was the coolest day for my third daughter. She was very very happy that she could celebrate her birthday with her friends in class. She was very timid, as I observed. Hehehe... I managed to make the "cakes" for her. I found the template here. It's so easy. I just print the template on the brown card stock, and then trimmed it one by one. It didn't take too much time and the result was so perfect, in my eyes.. ;D

Here we go...

  I made 34 pieces of cakes

 A closer look on the cakes.
 Each cake could accommodate 10 pieces of candy.

The look before it was fully decorated.

During fasting month like right now, I think this cake is very suitable for celebrating in the morning. It won't harm anybody's feeling. Heheh..

Ok, then. I will post the goodie for all friends and teachers of Selin.. See you later.
