Happy Thoughts

Happy Thoughts

Here’s one of the cards from the Studio Sus Cardmaking Workshop where you can make 30 cards with half a pack of the Chelsea Gardens Paper Pack. You’ll need a few other supplies that are listed below.  With a $25.00 purchase of the supplies needed for this workshop, you’ll receive the workshop guide FREE along with being in my Happy Mail Club!  =)  Here is the beautiful stamp and thin cut set used on the cards.

 Love being able to use the thin cuts to cut out the images so I don’t need to fussy cut them.  Sure saves some and hand cramps.

The background and texture paper is two sided so when making the cards, I opted to show off both sides of the card to change things up.  This way the cards all look different even if the pattern is the same.  This watercolored paper with the ombre look is one of my favorite sheets.

Season’s Greetings, Blog Candy, and Final Day

Season’s Greetings, Blog Candy, and Final Day

Where did this week go?  It’s the final day of the Winter Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop.  Here are my last two projects for the hop plus some nummy chocolate and coffee for a lucky commenter.  My Season’s Greeting Card and Something To Perk You gift card holder are projects for teachers and people who work with SG during the school year and beyond.  We have been so blessed to have incredible support people who help SG to love learning and overcome some challenges.

CTMH created this awesome stamp “Christmas Paper Doll” and it has dies to match (thank goodness).   I remember having paper dolls as a kid.  It’s must as much fun now.  I colored in the leaves with pencils and did the holly with Liquid Pearls.  SG wanted to have “red streaks” in her hair for Christmas, so she has them.   I added a coffee cup for good measure as most teachers I know, live on it! =)  The sentiment is from Pretty Pink Posh and the cup from Technique Tuesday.

Next, I was creating some gift card holders for those lovely Starbuck’s gift cards.

The gift card holder is from Sugar Pea Designs. The bear and his cup, from CTMH.  He’s retired and will be forever one of my favorites.  The sentiment came from My Favorite Things Stamps.  Add Liquid Glass to his eyes and nose as well as the coffee to make them shiny.

Of course, I’ll get some of those super cute Holiday Cards from Starbucks, not my own, ancient card!  Just a small token of our appreciation for everyone’s hard work.

Blog Candy

If you are still hopping and have come to my blog on day 8, you deserve some amazing chocolate.  I found this great chocolate bar from Trader Joe’s and some lucky commenter will win it!  =)  I’ll draw a winner on Sunday evening from the commenters so you’ve got 3 days to make it here.

Be sure to stop and check out the Winter Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop and even play.  There are some amazing artists and work on it as well as great sponsors.

December things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by to checkout my creative world. Don’t forget to leave a comment for the blog candy as you hop through the awesome blogs in the Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop.
