i heart coffee



Welcome to the Papertrey Ink blog hop, I love playing along with the crew, always finding new goodies I just "need" or inspiration of products I already have...    this month's theme for the challenge is "Fast Food" with a color and sketch challenge.  So I was inspired by yesterday's Stamp-a-Faire "scratch and sniff" challenge, Cristina made this fun coffee project and I knew that's where I wanted to go... so I used the recipe and added coffee to the coffee stamp (I found using an embossing pen worked really well for the small area).  To decorate my bag of Carolines Coffee Roasters, wrapped it in a piece of May Arts 4 inch burlap and then added an upcycled coffee holder (my brother sent me an entire box of them for my birthday, can you believe that?).  To add the tag to my bag I added a piece of May Arts Ivory Twill ribbon with coffee beans printed on it.  Now my craft area smells like coffee...

Your brother is a smart, smart man! Love that he sent them to you! This is fabulous and way to rock the scratch and sniff technique!

What a fabulous tag! Great take on the colour combo and sketch-- it's perfect!

Love the way you coordinated everything, including the kraft bag, and the contents with the scratch & sniff. The slight tilt of the coffee cup, on the tag, is the perfect finishing of your composition.

Aaaah! An embossing pen! Why didn't I think of that? Totally using that next time. And thanks for the shout-out. :) xoxo!
