My first decorated cupcake

As I was going through my pictures of my baking journey, I realized that I started with inspiration from in pinterest.
I made my first decorated cupcake in Sept 2012.
I wanted to share it today.

Alexas's minnie cake

This is the cake we made for alexa's 4th Minnie mouse birthday.
Me and my husband practiced for weeks.
We had to plan every step because we flew to seattle, so I had to premake certain aspects of the cake and ship it.
Lots of trouble, but I think its worth it.

This is our birthday girl.

Miami Heat Cake and cookies

This is the cake and cookies I made for my husband for birthday in December.
He is a huge Heat fan.

Spiderman and Batman Cookies

I had a lot of action in the kitchen this March and I would like to share the fruits of my labor.
I made Spiderman stuff for my son's birthday and batman ccokies for my  friend Gil.

This is what it looked like during the pre- detail stage.
Just frosting and outlining.

Obviously, Gil loves Batman.
We gave it to him for his bday.
BTW, he loved it!!

Next are the cookies I mde for Nico for his birthday celebration.
He loved Spiderman during this time, he is now into Avengers, batman and Superman.

This is my little bday boy- Nico.
He just turned two.

Easter Cookies 2013

Hi everyone,
I have finally been able to figure out some of the trick on this touch screen laptop.
So now I would like to share with you guys my easter 2013 edition cookies.

Believe it or not, my inspiration for these cookies came from my daughter's t-shirts from carters.
I thought the eyelashes were just adorable.
My favorite was the strawberry that came from an egg cutter, soo cool.
I brought this to work.
Also I used a newly discovered chocolate cookies recipe I found in pinterest.
Hope you like it.
Love K

It's been a long time- i'm back!

It's been forever since I've posted anything.
The mid part of last year was focused on the weight loss thing, then holidays then vacations and then 2013.
Also, I've started a new obsession, baking- it all started with cupcakes then progressed to cookies.
I will be posting more of that as soon as i'm able to upload everything.

Here's our latest pix from our Vacation from 2011 in Reno, NV.

The kids are getting bigger.
Alexa is almost 4 and Nico just turned 1 this year.

I am hoping that once they get bigger, i can get more crafting and blogging done.

I've been out of the blogging world for a few months.

Been kinda busy having a baby and getting gallbladder surgery.

Now, all that is over, I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.

I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy - Nicolas Jacob on the 18th of March.

We feel so blessed to have 2 beautiful kids.

( Updated pictures to come. )

Started working again in the new hospital.

It is ginormous and clean.

While i was on mat leave, i did some online shopping.

One of the big ticket items that i got was the Sizzix Pro and I love it!

I just need more time to play with it.

It is just huge and makes big big everything.

I mean just the machine itself is soo big!

I don't buy the dies in sizzix not unless they are on clearance or they have a promo.

I bought the machine and most of my dies from this website called Cut at home.

They have limited selections but they are 40% off.

I start posting projects very soon.

Thanks for stopping by.

12 x 12 layouts

Here's a 12 x 12 layout of my daughter's 2009 pictures.
I had them printed as a collage at walgreens and just cut them and arranged them accordingly.
I also used my sizzlits alpha letters called Round about, which is my favorite font.

This next one was inspired by Susan Weinroth's layout.
I just love her layouts! Click here to go to her website.

Stay tuned for more projects.

Love, K

Another Penny Black Stamp

I posted this rubber stamp in my previous blog.
I used a different printed paper on the pots, though.

This one is another PBI stamp that i wanted to highlight.
Isn't it just one of the cutest?
Used it as a cover of a perpetual calendar I gave out.

This gives you a little of an overall view.

This is the group picture of the hostess presents
that i gave this afternoon for the shower.

This is the last post on hostess or baby shower treats.
Finally, they've all been blogged.

On to our next project.
I think the next one would be a birthday one.

Have a good one.

Love, K

Baby Shower Hostess details

Here's a notepad that I got from the dollar store and just pumped
it up with scrapbook scraps.
I used the paper tole technique were you stamp the image multiple
times and just layer as desired.
I just looks like it jumps from the page.
I used a penny black Inc stamp, one of my favorite brands.
The mice i colored with SU Watercolor pencils and everything else is colored with copics.

I gave them to my 2 friends who hosted my baby shower this afternoon.
They loved it!
I'm glad.

So excited to make some more, I have a birthday that I'm planning for.

BTW, will post another stamped image with the same technique later tonight.

Have a great weekend!

Love, K

Updates and a Card

Good morning friends.
I have an OB appt. but its really raining crazy outside, i'm not sure if I wanna go.
I'm thinking about it over some coffee.
It's really cold and wet and scary.

I was able to update my blog lists and my daily doses.

Here's another card for you.

This is a Whipper Snapper designs stamp.
It is a good size stamp too, it filled the entire front of the card.
Did some embossing on the green card stock too.
