hey...let's have coffee


Happy Tuesday everyone! Three days left of this amazing blog hop and the entries I've seen so far just blow me away...the talent in this crafting community is just phenomenal. Not to mention all the coffee/tea related stamps, dies and embellishments - I cannot WAIT to shop! :) 

Here is my 2nd card of the hop - made with the Stampin' Up! May Paper Pumpkin kit called A Kit in Color.


The "let's have coffee" sentiment is from the Gerda Steiner Designs set called Coffeesaurus and the coffee cup is from a sweet set Amy sent me called Mini Hello Autumn from Flora & Fauna stamps. So stinkin' cute and they worked perfect for this bold "hey" sentiment in the kit!


The embellishments that come in the kit are so fun - vellum, enamel star dots, twine and these awesome die cut clouds :) FUN!!!


Be sure to click HERE at the Coffee Loving Card Makers blog and link up a Spring/Summer coffee, tea, or cocoa themed project for your chance to win some amazing prizes from our incredible Super Sponsors...can't wait to see what you link up :) Cheers!

Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!



Hello everyone! It's that exciting time again - the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is here! Every year it's so amazing to see all the wonderful coffee/tea/cocoa inspired entries - so I can be enabled and shop ;) hahahha!! 

For my first card of the hop, I am using the May Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin' Up! called "A Kit in Color." My good friend and demo came for a deck visit on Monday, spreading some "sunshine and happiness" handing out this kit and some other goodies...so, I figured it had perfect colors for a spring/summer themed hop ;) I just added some coffee goodies and wa-laaa!! 


The kit is chalk full of bright, cheery card bases, twine, embellishments and more so I went and dug through my other Stampin' Up! stash and found this "perk up" coffee cup from the Merry Cafe set. Perfect.

The sentiment is suiting for the start of the hop "oh, happy day!" I am excited to send out a few of these to my friends who need a little happy day note ;)


There are so many amazing Super Sponsors for our hop (THANK YOU!!!) so be sure to start HERE at the beginning and hop your way along leaving comments for chances to win ;) We would sure love it if you would join us and link a card up so we can also leave YOU some love...CHEERS!!

I Can't Thank You Enough

Happy Monday everyone! I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today with my installment of Caffeinated Creativity...I am sharing a bit of gratitude with this super cute, CAS card:

 
I let the designer paper do most of my work for me - SO CUTE!! I wish I could tell you where it's from but I'm sorry, I can't! It was loosely shoved in my stash so I matched it with some brown heart paper and it worked perfectly. The sentiment and die set are from new set from Stampin' Up! called the "So Sentimental Bundle" and I can see that I will be using this set A LOT! Here's a close up:

 

This stamp set has so many beautiful, versatile sentiments - friendship, healing hugs, thank you etc. One that will be used for many different occasions and cards!

 

Thank you again for stopping in today to see what I have created. It is a long weekend here in Canada, so a lot of folks went "social distance camping." I am getting my garden and flowers planted! Yay! Feels good to dig in the dirt ... have a wonderful day - CHEERS!

Coffee...the Magical Substance


Happy Monday everyone! I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today with my featured slot of "Caffeinated Creativity with Lori," and I am sharing this little bit of humor for you all :) 

This digi stamp makes me giggle every time I use it and I figured with quarantine goin' on, this may be how some are feeling in some (or many) households across the globe LOL...

Here's a close up:


We are finally experiencing some warmer temps here in central Alberta, so I got my deck table and chairs out and ready for morning coffee on the deck! It's supposed to be 16C today so I will take FULL advantage of that...

Please be sure to hop on over to the CLC blog and check out my post and feel free to browse at other posts from my amazingly talented design teamies - so much java-filled inspiration! Cheers!

You're the Cream in my Coffee



Hello crafty friends! I hope this finds you well. I am now down to 3 days in the accounting office and 4 days working from home, so I am able to be in my crafty space a bit more - WAHOO! It's been fun to go through all my goodies and start using some stuff that has never even been opened (ACK!) I know, right? For shame...lol I am sure most of us have stuff that's unopened, don't we?!? *giggle*

I am up on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog today featuring this sweet, caffeinated clean-and-simple card:

 

I am sharing a card made with some goodies from the Paper Sweeties 1st Quarter Sweet Kit. I have been wanting to crack this open for a while now and it was so fun!

 

It's a very clean-and-simple layout, but I feel it has such an overload in CUTENESS!!! Love those itty bitty cups and that sentiment is perfect :) Thanks for stopping in today to see what I've been up to. I hope you can find some crafty time during these harder days and it helps to bring happiness and peace....hugs!!!
