You might be a scrapbooking foodie if…

you color coordinate your kombucha to your scrapbook layout! Look at this gorgeous lemon lime twist colored NessAlla kombucha logo and the bermuda bay colored sticker towards the bottom…

Both of these colors are featured in the Bubbles and Fizz designer series paper. So it was destiny that I scrapbook my kombucha journey. The NessAlla stickers are the perfect memorabilia since they are flat and won’t add much thickness to the page.

I just need to add my favorite NessAlla flavors, my home brewing observations, the SCOBY drive thru story. You know, the journaling part that gets done later.2 2018odbloghop4-001

side by side, 12×12 inch layouts with the brew that inspired it!

Can you see the different basic black mat widths around the edges? The one on the left has a 1/4 inch mat. The one on the right has a 1/2 inch mat. I’ll have to walk around the layout a few more days to decide which mat I like. Nothing is taped down yet so I can make some adjustments and add more journaling space if needed. It usually takes a few days for a layout to be finished for me. I’ll pull out all the supplies I want to use and make a rough design. After a few days of walking around the layout and making adjustments, I can declare it is done!

Supplies used:

12×12 basic black cardstock for the base layer (matches the popped bubbles on the dsp)

Bubbles and Fizz designer series paper which is earned free with a $50 Sale-A-Bration order

lemon lime twist, bermuda bay, calypso coral (on the assorted sized bubbles) cardstock

whisper white cardstock

Bottles and Bubbles framelits

Stitched Shapes framelits

All paper crafting supplies can be ordered at my online store here.

To find NessAlla kombucha near you, visit their website here for locations. They have tappers at Willy Street Co-op in the Madison area which makes it convenient to reuse their bottles.

And yes, lemongrass ginger is my favorite flavor followed by hibiscus cardamom ginger when I am feeling I need a little red spice in my life.

Until next time,

CASEing the Blog Hop Design 2

I participated and helped coordinate a Sale-A-Bration 2018 Blog Hop that was posted last week. If you missed it, click here to hop along.

I got the idea to CASE the designs shared on the other blogs. I am CASEing Terri Stewart for day 2. Click here to see her designs. She used the Party Pandas stamp set for some fun cards.

I had a growing pile of cut ends from Bubbles and Fizz designer series paper(dsp) from creating a stack of cards yesterday. I remembered Terri Stewart used strips of dsp on her card so I knew I could CASE her card while reducing my scrape pile.

I decided the easiest way to align the 4 x 1 1/4 inch dsp strips was on a calypso coral cardstock mat that was cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches. I next cut the largest square stitched shapes framelit from powder pink cardstock. I had bottles already cut using the coordinating framelits from yesterday’s cutting session so it was easy to add 3 bottles to the front of the card.

The pink love mini tinsel trim makes a secure bow and fun embellishment that can be extended to the other side of the card. I decided to pull the ends to match the feeling of the sentiment, like bubbling over.

The tinsel trim is too narrow for a full, glue dot. So I rolled it as shown below using my paper piercing tool. The tool makes easy pick up to transfer the glue dot under the curves of the trim to anchor it in just the right spots.

Close up of the final card. I also stamped bermuda bay bubbles and the sentiment from the Bubble Over stamp set. A vellum straw adds the last detail.

When I saw the Bubble Over bundle, I knew this would be the first set to add to my stash because I am a kombucha home brewer and drinker.

The NessAlla kombucha growler is from our local brewers who are 2 friends that are now girl bosses of their own company. They brew all year favorites and seasonals that taste so good and are good for you! Right now, my favorite flavor is lemongrass ginger. I seem to follow the seasons and this has a nice warm, brown tone. Check out their website here to find out if they distribute in your area.

I’ll have another Blog Hop CASE shortly so check back in a day or 2. Thanks for stopping by!

Strapping in Precious Cargo

I felt the need for some purple kombucha yesterday. Did not matter the flavor inside. I just knew that the juniper rose NessAlla kombucha has a purple label. So that is what I bought! I have not tried this flavor before since I opt for the ginger infused ones. I was pleasantly surprised with the flavor profile! Oh so good!

I strap all my precious cargo in. Here is Paper Pumpkin!

And the original precious cargo. I think about Spencer each time I strap something else in.

I must have looked into the crystal ball when I took the NessAlla photo yesterday with the idea to create a precious cargo post. NessAlla asked to see our booch today so here is mine!   #whosyourbooch #boochslayer #kombucha #nessalla #localbrand #nessallakombucha

Check back tomorrow to see where I delivered Paper Pumpkins too. The stack got strapped in too although I did not take a photo!

Now back to enjoying my refreshingly delicious booch!
