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.
