National Coffee Day

With today being National Coffee Day, I whipped up a little gift bag to give to a friend.  I added a K-cup of some Starbucks coffee and some delicious little candies.  Here is a pic.

And a close up:

That's all for today, hope you have a lovely evening.

Coloring and Coffee Planner Fun

It's National Coffee Day!!!  Yea!

(image source:

I know I will be celebrating with a large cup of my favorite java.
And it's day 7 of the Fall Coffee Hop,  I can't believe how fast time is flying by.
I have a few photos for this post so please bear with me.  Ha!

First up I wanted to share how I like to cut out the cups from the cardboard Starbucks instant packages.  Here is a pic.

Then by adding a fun green clip to it I can make it a bookmark, or fun clip to use.  See next pic.

I wanted to use it in my planner and here is a pic of mine.  I am using Johanna Basford's Coloring Book planner this year.  I love her coloring books and thought this planner would be so fun.  I get a little coloring in with my planner arranging.  And you can see how I used my clip to mark my planner.

Here is a finished page for the week the hop started.   My clip and some fun fall pumpkin spice  planner cut outs from Planner Pickett.  I used a combination of colored pencils to get these pretty fall colors.  It is a lovely array of mum looking flowers.

That's all for me today, I am so glad you stopped by and hope you have a lovely day.

Nope Not Today

So, have you been enjoying the Coffee Hop.  I have, lots of creative inspiration.  And I just love how the craft companies are accommodating our love of coffee.   Today is day #6, and I have a fun card to share with you.

 I have to laugh on days that I have set aside to go shopping and pick up a coffee.  That my husband tries to set my day up for other things.  Ha!  And I tell him, NOPE not today!!  Ha!  That is my day to go out, shop, and pick up a favorite java of mine.  He knows that it's serious at that point.  Ha!  Here is a pic.

My stamp and sentiment is from Unity, and the Design Paper is from Echo Park, the washi, kraft paper and ribbon is from my stash.  I colored in the image with Distress Inks.  Love her red wellies.  Ha!

Ok, that's it for me today.  So glad you stopped by and have a great day.

PSL Kind of Day

It's day 5 in the Coffee Hop.  It has been loads of fun.
My creation for today is a fun little notebook that I am going to use for grocery shopping.  Here is a pic.  This is a side by side pic of the notebook.  The front cover and inside.

I used the super cute stamp and die set from Reverse Confetti which is so cute.  I used some lined papers I had for my little notebook, and created a back out of chipboard, and then used some DP and paper embellishments from Echo Parks Collection called, The Story Of Our Fall.  I punched some holes into the top and added some yarn.  Then to finish it off added some enamel dots and an acorn.

That's it for me today.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Coffee ATC

Today is day #4 of the Coffee Hop.  It has been wonderful seeing all the fun projects.

Before I share my creation for today I am going to share a little something that I have had going on in my life.   In January my little Westie, "Rocky" that I had for 14 years passed away, here is a pic of him, for those who didn't see him before on my blog.  I loved him very much and he was like a child to me.  I had a very difficult time with his passing.  He was a very handsome Westie and was so loving and devoted to me, and I to him.  He will always be in my heart and I miss him every day.

  And then a few weeks later the Lord arranged for me to meet a lady who had a little Boston Terrier puppy and so I went to meet him.  On his 8 week birthday we brought him home to our house.  He is the new addition to our family.  He has helped me grieve "Rocky"  and love and laugh again.  His name is "Parker".  He is nine months old now and growing so fast.  Here is a pic of him taken a couple months ago.  He is such a cutie.  He was begging for my attention, and yes he did get it.   I love him soooo much already.

So, that brings me to my creation for the hop.  I made a ATC card and used a Boston Terrier stamp.  And a sentiment stamp from Andrea Gomoll.

Yes, I love him more than coffee.  I spritzed the stamped image with some brown ink, then I mounted the stamped Trading Card onto some dark brown and kraft papers, and then used some Gold Inka Gold around the edges of the card.  Love it so much!

So, that's it for me today, I am so glad you stopped by and got to see my precious "Rocky" and new addition "Parker".

Tea Lover

Today is day #3 of the Coffee Hop and I have loved seeing all the wonderful creations uploaded by all the talented crafters in blog land.
Today I have a simple card to share with you.  Every once in a while a piece of cardstock comes along that is strong enough to stand alone and do all the "work",  that is what I felt this does for my next card.  Here is a pic.

This paper is from FabScraps Country Kitchen Collection and this sheet is called, "Tea Lovers".  It is so pretty.  I finished it off with a black ribbon and whala.  All done.

I am so glad you stopped by and have a lovely day.  I am linked up below.

Fall Coffee Cup Sleeve

Today is day #2 of the Fall Coffee Hop and so far it has been loads of fun.
Today I am sharing a Coffee Cup Sleeve that I altered/upcycled.  That is always a fun thing to do.  I really blinged this one up.

So pretty!  I used some pretty navy blue cardstock, then added the pumpkins and leaves, love the sparkle with those.  Then some cute enamel dots.  Can't wait to use it.  Here is a pic below of it on a cute Fall To Go Cup.

Well, that's it for me today, have a lovely time hopping.
