Coffee Lovers Blog Hop- #4

Yet again, I am not using my stamp set bought specifically for this Blog Hop.  I must be waiting for just the right  idea to march out on my desk and lay itself down on my card front.  Meanwhile, here is another card using the “post it” coffee cups from Little B and some copper foiled Washi tape from Prima Marketing.


Supplies:  Little B tabs, Luxe Lodge DCWV patterned paper, Prima Marketing gold and copper foil Washi tape strips, Simon Says Stamp card base and Zig 2 way glue and Scor tape

Kylie and Taya

I had a couple of pictures of my granddaughters Kylie and Taya that I thought were just plain lovely and deserved to have a scrapbook page to show them off.

I was also surprised to realize that I had everything I needed in my stash to produce a layout using lavender as the primary colour.  I remembered that  I had picked up some lovely Prima flowers in shades of purple when they went on sale,  because I knew this colour was a favourite of Kylie.  I had recently received the Downton Abbey Scrapbook Kit,  and the lavender papers in it had just the right feel and touch of elegance for the project.

I am happy enough with the results that I think I will be purchasing a shadow box frame, so that I can put it on my wall.


Supplies:  Crafter’s Companion  Downton Abbey Papercrafting Collection.  Prima Flowers and gold doilies,  Papertrey ink What the Doodle Feathers and Butterflies stamps and dies, May Arts heart ribbon, unknown pearl lace, Kaleidoscope embossing powder, Deco Foil gold, copic markers, Zva Creative pearls,  Darice Ostrich feather, Tombow tape runner and many pop up relief glue dots.

Simon Says Stamp- Wednesday Challenge- Flowers

The theme this week for Simon Says Stamp’s Wednesday Challenge is “flowers”, featuring products from Prima.  I was happy to see this as one of my constant re-organizations of my craft room revealed that I haven’t used my flower stash for a while.  I was able to pair some older Prima flowers and some older ribbon for a pleasing result.



Supplies:  Prima Flowers Prelude B, Prima Flowers Something Blue-Made of Honor,  Recollections cardstock and Metallic Natural Leaves, Papertrey Ink Marquee Frame, May Arts ribbon, Simon Says Stamp dye inks, Tim Holtz sponge applicator, Hero Arts card base and Scor tape
