Photo Caption from @katrinaalana: We wanted to give our lovely goddaughter her first birthday present since she will be flying back home for her celebration. Advance happy birthday Avie baby!
My godchild Mavi is celebrating his first birthday party next month and we helped create the party decorations for the party. His mom Meliza has been a friend of mine since high school.
The theme is little gentleman and mustache. The colors for the party is blue, green and yellow.
We decided to create a custom cake topper to match the theme. I hand-painted the wooden cake topper and sealed with nontoxic sealant so that it will be safe to put on top of the cake.
We brainstormed the idea for the invitation and the gingham and other illustration were made specifically for this occasion.
Unfortunately we will not be able to fly over for the party so we will be sending our love and birthday wishes to Mavi from Singapore.

My cousin Venus asked me to design a circus themed birthday invitation for her that she can print at home. She had an inspiration photo from Martha Stewart.
I wanted to take the font type and use of paper accessories as inspiration for my original design. The vintage graphics are courtesy of The Graphics Fairy.
The set is composed of the main invitation which is wrapped in wax paper that is tied with twine. Two paper accessories are used to give the invitation a more vintage look. I designed a round sticker for the envelope so that there is continuity from the outside to the inside.
She was happy with the first draft so a printable PDF was sent to Venus. I gave her some instructions on what materials to use for the invitation.
We’re getting a few projects for digital copies of invitations and we are thinking of selling some of our designs. What do you think? Would you be interested in purchasing digital designs that you can print at home or email to invite your family and friends?
I was interviewed by Lisabel Ting for her column, Get Crafty, last week and I provided the steps on how to make a cake topper. The photos are courtesy of Lex under Photosaurus-Studio.com. Grab a copy of The Straits Times today, to see detailed instructions on we make our cake toppers.
