Coffee Break Suite #3

I had a design session for a blog hop that featured the Coffee Break Suite. If you missed the hop, click here and hop along. Great projects are featured from Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators around the world!

I decided to share the designs that did not make the hop in different posts. Click here to see design #1 that was posted the day before the hop. Today I am sharing design #3.

This is a no scrap generated designer series paper design. The uncut, circle printed dsp is 4×5 inches. The individual coffee pots did not generate scrap because the pieces between the pots went right to the trash bin since the entire sheet of pots was fussy cut. So I did not add to my scrap pile. That’s what makes it a no scrap generated dsp design.

Cut at an angle on your personal trimmer as shown. Position the paper so the larger portion is on the right side of the cutting groove. Line up the top corner with the cutting groove. Line up the opposite corner with the 1 1/2 inch mark. Then cut the paper into two pieces. The larger piece is used on the outside of the card. The smaller piece is used on the inside of the card.

The next fun detail is the stamped hearts inside the soft sky circles. See the original pattern in the bottom right of this photo. Early espresso inked hearts perfectly coordinates with the Coffee Break designer series paper.

The soft sky finely woven ribbon makes a soft seam between the whisper white and Coffee Break dsp.

Supplies used…fussy cut the coffee pots easily using our paper snips.

This is a fun suite to create with! You must hurry if you want to order the Coffee Break dsp and soft sky finely woven ribbon. Both are soon to be retiring so once they are sold out, they are gone. In addition, the bundle pricing on the Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups framelits is retiring too. So order it all while it is still in stock and bundle priced!

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:)

4 2018 coffecafe4-001

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.

If you are attending the Card Buffet today, this is your party favor!

Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop Painted with Love Specialty

I am excited to be a hop stop with the Scrapbooking Sunday crew. Our April theme is pastels. So I looked at my paper stash and found the Painted with Love Specialty designer series paper has powder pink accents. The finely woven powder pink ribbon has a bit of shimmer and is slightly stiff so will be nice and flat on the layout.

4 2018scrapbooksunday1-001

The Painted with Love dsp is heavier weight so it will hold up well when cut using the Bold Butterfly framelit.

2 page, 12×12 inch layout…just add photos and journaling!

4 2018scrapbooksunday3-001

Tuck a snippet of powder pink finely woven ribbon between 2 hearts cut using the Mini Treat Bag framelit. Mat them with gold foil paper.

4 2018scrapbooksunday4-001

A trio of hearts cut using the Wood Crate framelit anchors the bottom right of the layout. The smallest hearts in the upper left and the single hearts are cut using the Support Ribbon framelits.

The supplies used to create this layout plus 12×12 sheets of whisper white cardstock and gold foil paper and powder pink finely woven ribbon.
