Coffee Break Blog Hop

I hope you are enjoying our Coffee Break Blog Hop along with a cup of coffee or tea. I’m hopping with fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada. You may have arrived from Sandra Robert’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

Today’s hop features the Coffee Break designer series paper (dsp) with coordinating Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cup framelits. With 12 patterns to select from on 6 double sided sheets, our blog hop projects may or may not include coffee themes. The opposite sides of the dsp usually feature a complimentary pattern like strips, circles or asymmetrical prints that may be used instead of the coffee patterns.

I decided to create a dark chocolate espresso bean treat sack for my project. Our 2×8 inch cellophane bags holds about a serving of beans after I cut the bag to 5 inches. But a serving for me is 3 beans. I will probably be wide awake tonight since I sampled while I was designing:)

The bag topper is 2×4 inches of early espresso cardstock that was embossed using the softly falling embossing folder and folded to make a 2×2 inch topper. The next layer is 4×1 1/2 inches from the Coffee Break designer series paper package. A whisper white 1 1/4 inch circle creates a mat for the mini coffee cup that was “embossed” using the sleeve framelit from the Coffee Cups framelit set.

The Coffee Break dsp was snipped as shown to create the flag.

Most of the supplies used to create the treat bag topper. I see I did not include the Softly Falling embossing folder and 1 1/4 inch circle punch.

ICS Blog Hop Apron of Love

18921714_10211443614138533_8110915648621796263_n

Welcome to the Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop featuring It’s a Girl Thing themes. I hope you are enjoying our stops. We have great projects to share with you!

I picked the Apron of Love bundle to create a hand stamped greeting card because it reminds me of my Grandma. The next supply to pluck from my stash was the Delightful Daisy designer series paper. I wanted a bright design so opted for daffodil delight cardstock for the card base and apron. One of the framelits look like lace so I repeated that design by using a white delicate doilie as a layer behind the apron.

Our silver foil sheets provide the sturdiness needed for the utensils. We carry copper and gold foil sheets too. Tucked behind the doilie is a 3×3 inch old olive cardstock. There was a strip of daffodil delight cardstock left after cutting a few aprons so it was tucked behind the old olive piece.

4 2018icsbloghop3-001

Grandma would visit for a month at a time. She would wear an apron when in the kitchen making a batch of chicken and dumplings. I remember the over the head style with ruffles she would wear at her house to protect her clothes. Grandma is remembered for her coffee cakes too.

I hope you are enjoying our It’s a Girl Thing blog hop. Now click on the NEXT image to hop to the next stop at Cheryl’s blog. Thanks!

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop! We are all fans of this monthly crafting kit and want to share with you our enthusiasm for this box of fun and creativity. The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use this March Paper Pumpkin kit: May Good Things Grow.

This kit created 8 cards with pocket envelopes. The pocket envelopes make great memorabilia envelopes on a scrapbook layout. The card supplies create space for photo mats. The open space at the top of the pages are for titles when photos are added.

Ink and Share Blog Hop Hold on to Hope

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects made with Stampin’ Up! products designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Kirsten’s blog. My hop design is below.

I am featuring the Hold on to Hope stamp set and framelits to create a hand stamped greeting card. The Painted with Love specialty designer series paper has gold accents so pairs well with blocks of gold foil sheets. I’ll be making several of these so they are ready for mailing as needed.

The dsp also has painted looking stripes of rich razzleberry and powder pink. So the mat is rich razzleberry attached to powder pink cardstock. Linen thread and powder pink shimmer ribbon encase the crosses.

The inside carries over the stamping on the right border with a whisper white liner to write a personal message.
