i heart coffee


Okay friends... what better way to start your Saturday then with some fun coffee crafty projects?  I have been meaning to play along with the PTI Make it Monday "Layered Emboss Resist" challenge and just hadn't found the right inspiration...   In the end I love the subtle coffee mugs on these two projects, I haven't used my clear embossing powder in awhile.  And since I've used a few goodies from around the house on these projects, I'm also going to add this to the Moxie Fab World Handmade Cards Week "The General Craft Supplies", because really you just never know when you might use a coffee filter, doily and upcycled coffee take out holder in your project, and while those are exactly goodies you'd find on the aisles of your craft store, I like the idea that could collect them in aisle at the grocery store (along with the coffee in the bag above, thank you Carolines Coffee Roasters for being available in my local supermarket).  In addition to my household goodies I've used May Arts crochet ribbon and coffee printed ivory twill ribbon, Hero Arts newspaper background, PTI Warm Happiness and Latte Love, Lawn Fawn chevrons, distress inks, Spellbinders dies, PTI notebook and tag dies.  So, enjoy your cup of coffee, I know I will.
