More Coffee Cafe Fun

Hello Friends!

Today I will like to share with you these cute tags I made to attach to some yummy chocolate espresso beans I found at Starbucks.

But first here is a picture of them together. When I saw these espresso beans I knew I had to have them as they coordinate nicely with the coffee beans from the Coffee Cafe stamp set. Add the fact that there is a coordinating die is just a BONUS. #WINNING

I LOVE making little tags.They're quick and easy and with Stampin' Up! the possibilities are endless!  

I love that coffee cup! I love the fact that there is a die that coordinates with this designer series paper to cut out that cute cup!

This tag I used a smaller circle punch. Now for this cute coffee cup I did "fussy cut" BUT since it is so little, it was super easy and quick!

Cute right? Oh and those espresso beans.........DELICIOUS!

Fun Fact: The Coffee Cafe stamp set and coordinating dies you can buy in a bundle and save 10%! SCORE!  

To order the goodies used to make these tags please visit my ONLINE STORE.

Till next time peeps,

Happy Stampin'

Fourth Of July Goodies

Hello Friends!

Today I would like to share with you these favors I made for Fourth of July.


Can you believe these were thrown together at the last minute? I found these cute chocolates at my local grocery store as I was doing some last minute shopping for my family get together. I saw them and I had to buy them. I mean it is chocolate AND they happen to be wrapped in gorgeous American wrappers.

When I got these chocolates home I went to play right away. I had about 20 minutes before it was  "time to go".  For this goodie bag I grabbed a 3x6 gusseted cellophane bag and filled it with some of the chocolates. I tied a bow using some classic weave ribbon in whisper white. I used my 1 3/4 circle punch with some whisper white cardstock. I used the little star from the Moon Baby stamp set to stamp out all the stars using real red and night of navy ink. I also used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set along with the coordinating classic label punch.     

 For this favor I used a 2x8 cellophane bag. I like how the chocolates look in this. Used just about the same things except for this one I used the In the City stamp set for the fireworks. Which is ONLY AVAILABLE through the hostess rewards.

Although these were thrown together last minute, the recipients LOVED them. =)

Hope you had a great Fourth Of July!

Till next time peeps.

Happy Stampin'

Updated July Monthly Planner Layout & Paper Pumpkin Special

Hello Friends.

I have a question for you. Have you ever created something, walked away from it and then when you returned to it you thought something's missing?

This is what happened with my July monthly layout in my planner. Yesterday I posted on my blog my July monthly layout. However last night as I sat down to start planning out next week in my planner I felt like something was missing. Needless to say I started playing around it.

Here is the before.

And here is the after.


I added some designer series paper from the Petal Garden Series Paper Stack on the top. I then "fussy" cut one of the roses and used my snail adhesive to attach under my notes on the right. I also stamped the rose from the Graceful Garden stamp set and colored it in using watercolor pencils.

The "July" stamp is actually from stamp set that came with the "One Great Year" paper pumpkin. Which is one of the reasons why I LOVE PAPER PUMPKIN. Every month you get a exclusive stamp set that you can use time and time again!  



Speaking of Paper Pumpkin did you know that starting TONIGHT at 11:59pm to tomorrow night (Friday 6/30 11:59pm) NEW Paper Pumpkin customers can receive their first-month subscription for only $5 USD/$7 CAD. That’s a crazy 75% off the regular price! This deal is only available for 24 hours and to NEW Paper Pumpkin customers.  To subscribe to Paper Pumpkin Please CLICK HERE 
 

Hope you enjoyed my updated planner layout.

Till next time peeps.

Happy Stampin'!

July Monthly Planner Layout

Hello Friends! Today I would like to share with you my FIRST monthly planner layout in the NEW Stampin' Up! Planner!

Up first is the very first page.



I used a few different stamp sets. I like how this page starts off each month. The boxes are a nice size for you to journal and stamp. I like how I was able to add a photo of my kids.  =)

Here is the monthly layout. This is what I have planned so far. I'm sure I will add to it as the month goes on.


This planner kit comes with a plastic divider/bookmark but I wanted to make a couple planner paper clips as well. I got this idea to make the rose after looking at the July divider page. It has roses on them and also these roses are featured throughout the planner.


Here are the two planner paper clips I made along with the July divider that Inspired me.

Cute right?

Here is a close up of them.



One more of how they look like with the binder closed.

I LOVE how they came out!

I hope you enjoyed todays post. To purchase the goodies used in todays post please visit my ONLINE STORE.

Till next time peeps,

Happy Stampin'!
