Postcard Perfect Iced Coffee

Happy Monday Crafty Friends!

Here's a refreshing card to kick off the week!  Each year this last week of May (yes, I know it's now July) is the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!  Here's the first one of my Coffee and or Tea themed projects.

This mason jar is was only available in May 2018.  Yep, I started this post when it was actually May.    

The REALLY good news is that the paper pack is still available in July 2018!  It's called Postcard Perfect and you can find it here on my website.  

The middle row of papers are Vellum and embossed in white.  But since you can't see white on white, they shaded it in.

Here's another Postcard Perfect Card.  Even a small strip of that beautiful tropical paper has a big impact!  The stamp set used on this card is the Beautiful Friendship - Cardmaking Stamp with Thin Cuts bundle.  It's about to sell out so if you love it, buy it NOW.  This a bundle.  If you order the dies, you'll always get the stamps.

With joy in my heart and coffee in my cup, have a great week

Beautiful Friendship (with Tea)

Hello morning friends,

This weekend I was playing with the Beautiful Friendship papers and coordinating stamp & thin cut set (The die is almost sold out).  I finally cut into the teacup paper for my card workshop and now it's almost gone!

I also had cut a bunch of latte cups at 3" from the Artistry Cricut Cartridge.  I used the die from the teacup set for the tag and Short & Sweet stamp set.  Our mini-stapler to attach the string.  I love this effect!  See the sparkles on the lid?  I love our shimmer brushes!  They're so sparkly and don't rub off unless you apply too much.  

Last but not least, is my Impossible Card that I created a few weeks back.  

This bundle of stamps & dies is a steal at only $22.95.  But don't wait long.  There's less than 150 of these bundles remaining!

Coffee Sampler Remix!

It's back!  
Last year's coffee sampler was a huge success with the Sugar Rush papers but those papers sold out in a flash and when a friend came over and begged for my sampler off of my wall, it got me thinking again!
This year's sampler is full of teals and greens and a touch of pink with the Gimme Some Sugar Paper collection and coordinating cork shapes.  

I've added a new cup from the You Are Here Cricut Collection and a coffee bean shape to the center of all of the "o"s in the words.  

Do you want to make one?  

If you order by April 16th for an earlybird discount and receive $2 off your kit.  Kits are normally $12 ea + shipping. 

Local to Everett, attend my workshop on April 21st at 6pm.  
(this will send you to PayPal to purchase a kit to be picked up locally)

Or order a kit to be shipped to your home.
This link includes an additional $3 for shipping.  NOTE:  You'll need to provide 1 sheet of White Daisy cardstock for the background.  I don't really want to charge anyone $7+ for shipping because of one single sheet of 12x12 sheet of paper.  I hope that makes sense.

Explosion Box Album

Hello crafty friends!

Today's post is giving you a little bit more info about a workshop I'm holding a couple times this spring.  I call it the "Important Things Box."  Last month Close to My Heart had a scrapbooking bundle called the Important Things.  It featured journaling prompts to go with specific photos.  It was a 6x8 album that was designed to help you record important aspects of your life.

I took this idea, the April Stamp of the Month and a challenge to create an explosion box and melded them all together.

An explosion box is a cube that falls open when the lid is lifted off.  Some boxes had more flaps inside, others had Easter treat baskets.  Mine's a mini album.

This album was super easy to make.  The sticky tabs on the flip flaps are used to make the album so very little additional adhesive is needed.

Supplies Used
Gimme Some Sugar Paper Pack
Bashful, Juniper and White Daisy Cardstock
3x4 and 4x4 Flip Flaps
S1804 Color Your Life
D1772 Documented Scrapbooking
D1786 Quotable Words (Available May 1)
Z4144 Peacock Stitched Ribbon
E1033 Inked Alphabet
Z2849 Peacock Ink
Z3285 Flower Market Cricut Bundle

Workshops will be held Monday, May 7th and again in early June.  Stay tuned for more fun versions.
