Lady Katutz First Day Covers

Hi, everyone~!

I saw the need to complete my Lady Katutz Philatelic Souvenirs with the production of these Lady Katutz First Day Covers.

Last year on September 15, 2015, I together with Mr. Dorin Cojocariu produced under Zazzle.com in the USA, Lady Katutz philatelic stamps and maxicards.  It is after the delivery of these few limited edition items that I saw the need to complete my Lady Katutz collection with the production of a few or limited FDCs.

Again, together with Mr. Dorin Cojocariu, the Lady Katutz FDCs has now been completed as one-of- a-kind items for my collection, as shown below:

Pres. Elpidio Quirino Maxicards II

Hi, everyone!

To commemmorate the birth anniversary of 
Pres. Elpidio Quirino last April 15, 2016, 
here is a maxicard of the president:


Cancellation:  April 15, 2016
Las Piñas Central P.O.


The above maxicard appears spoiled due to the smudges created upon cancellation.  The postcard in itself is glossy in nature and is a bit difficult to conduct a clean cancellation for a maxicard.

The above is for a year-long tribute for Pres. Quirino.

"Hello There: an SWI - After Photos" LO for Sunshine Inspired Designs

Hi, everyone!

 I would like to share my layout of my After Photos from working out at Slimmers World International from September 2015 to January 2016.

I had been a Slimmers World International gym member since 1999.  Had been a Lifetime Member when the millenium had set in from Pasay Road & Salcedo branch.  And made a come back at the Alabang branch last 2015 to get back in shape after my hospital operation .

I'm a bit shy in showing my photos that I decided to create an LO with them to pretty up viewing my After Photos.  My Before Work Out LO, I've shown last year 2015.

Here goes:


The layout is entitled, "HELLO THERE!"

My 10 lbs weight loss was attributed to my many cardiovascular exercises, mainly the variety of dance exercise classes from Modern Dance Class, Latin Jazz Advance Dance Class, Latin Dance Class to Hi-Lo Dance Class.  Add to that running a number of minutes on the treadmill, weights, exercises to tone the muscles on the bench and machines.

I did start last January 2016 personal training added to my above routine, but I only lasted until last week of January 2016, as I became low blood with dizzy spells.

I took leave from Slimmers up to my birthday this month of April 2016.  I wish to be back again this month without any handicap.  Please pray for me.


My LO was created with the tulip flower as inspiration.  The kit utilized is from Sunshine Inspired Designs' newsletter freebie, which is a Hello digital kit freebie.

"Charito's" LO for Sunshine Inspired Designs


Hi, everyone!

Today's the release of


Sunshine Inspired Designs (SID)'s


"Wildflowers" digital kit:



I had so much fun creating with the digital kit and

here I am now sharing my prepared projects with SID . . .


Here is my CT Project for SID's kit release:


I created the LO in traditional scrapbook style . . . clean and simple lines in use.  Laces were utilized to anchor the photo on a straight line with a ribboned flower cluster.  Journaling cards were tucked in at the back of the photo, with the background brushed with paint and decored on.  They are further accentuated with a butterfly button on a paper clip, with a bee and butterfly fluttering round.
