The Brew Crew

The Brew Crew

Wow…Here are some fun cards with a Design Space file for a coffee shaped card that I made over 2 years ago and used many times over.  I’ve included the DS file for you.  There were several different Pins and posts from the Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop that inspired this creative set of cards.  All the papers used are from CTMH.  The stamps are retired CTMH stamps, with the exception of the “Haunted Cup” card which features “Cats and Bats Cardmaking Stamp set and dies.” The sentiment about “Pumpkin Spice” is from Sugar Pea Designs.

SG (my daughter) gave names to each of the Brew Crew cards.  I had wanted all the cards to be “brew” cards but she felt strongly that the Cat card needed to be “Cat Coffee” , not “Cat’s Brew”.

Friends are better with coffee

Friends are better with Coffee

I’ve been working a crop all weekend and am just getting a chance to add to my blog.  This is my 2nd entry to the Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop.   This card is a combo of several different products/companies.  I was so lucky to win this cute stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh along with the great pink sequins.  I’m using the stamp set from the CTMH National Stamping Month Special CC1228 From the Heart to create the flowers on the top of the card.  I cut on of the acrlix stamps from the sentiment so that I just had the flowers.  The coffee cup is from the retired Jack Cardmaking stamp set and die.


I watercolored the flowers and the two friends with the CTMH Watercolor Pencils and our wonderful waterbrushes where you can have water in the brush so you don’t have to have a cup of water to rinse brushes off.  You know what a disaster a cup of water can be on a table where you are creating!  I wanted a fall look to the card so I added more orange and yellows to the flowers.  I used Fern ink pad on the leaves to get a more Autumn feel.  On the coffee ups, I used Liquid Glass to make the coffee look “wet”.

On the inside of the card, I used a sentiment from the SugarPea Designs and the sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

It’s In My Nature

It’s In My Nature

It’s time for the Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop!  Here’s my first card for this – “It’s in my nature”, featuring this super cute bear from the Jack Cardmaking (now retired), the Beary Christmas Paper, and CTMH Cricut Cartridge “You Are Here”!  This cartridge has several coffee cups on it.  =)   “Coffee” comes from Sugar Pea Designs.

I just could not resist pairing up the sentiment “It’s in my nature” with coffee.  Since it spoke about nature, I had to get the little bear stamp back out.  I used Sapphire to mat the background paper from Beary Christmas.  The bronze sequins are from the Falling For You Collection.  There is so much goodness in this new Seasonal Expressions!!   I’m headed out to vend at the Harbor Scrapbooking Crop event in PA today so I don’t have time to blog a lot about the card.  Here are a few more images:

First day of school

First day of school

Today is Sarah Grace’s first day of third grade!  Time has just flown by.  It’s hard to believe she’s starting her fourth year of school.  As with tradition, there’s the first day of school picture:


Always have to do something for the teachers.  Their marathon has just begun.   Here’s the “Welcome Back to School” gifts for the teachers:


Jeff made these awesome cookies for the teachers.  He is the best baker and I’m so glad he could do that while I made bag toppers for the Ziplock bags. Adding toppers dresses the bag up and is fun to because you can personalize the bag as well as show what occasions it’s for.

Here’s the design space file for this:  https://design.cricut.com/#/design/68070047

Basic directions:

  • The base of the topper is 7.5″ x 6″ and cut from Sapphire cardstock.
  • Score at the 3″ mark on the 6″ side and fold in half.
  • Cut a piece of White Daisy cardstock 2.5″ x 5.5″ and glued to the base.
  • Cut the Design Space file above out using the colors as you desire.

After creating these, we attached a card to the back of the topper with a “Welcome Back” note to thank SG’s teachers for being a part of her teaching team for the next year.  Teaching is hard work and we appreciate their efforts.  We also want them to know they can contact us for any reason, whether they need classroom supplies or otherwise.

Hello Handsome!

Hello Handsome!

We all have the guys in our lives who need a card or two to wish them a Happy Birthday or thank them for something they did, and even to remind them of how special they are too us.  A guest artist, Jen Palmer, made this for our 50 Card Swap and I just think it’s the greatest.  You can use the Cricut to cut the title, scallop circle, and circle out.  You use the thin cut dies to cut out the banner.  Life is so good when you minimize your cutting.

The stamp set, Jack Cardmaking stamp set has a set of dies you can get with the stamp set if you choose.  You have the little tattoos that you can put on the lumberjack’s arms.  I think this is super cute.  Use the Cranberry ink makes the tattoo and “handsome” stand out and catch your eye.  Here is the entire handsome collection of Jack:

Good Days Start with Coffee

Good Days Start with Coffee

I had a fun time making this card.  Been in a shaker cardmaking mode for a bit and this was great fun to use the coffee beans in the shaker with various toppings from Queen and Company.   Another card for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.

I used Stamplorations coffee mug to cut out the center of the shaker from No Worries paper from CTMH.  Sapphire is the background cardstock (25% off this month).  Cut transparency out  and put on the back of the paper creating the window.  For the coffee beans to work, you need to double layer 3D foam tape.  Create a box on the Sapphire cardstock and add your shaker fillings in.

Mount the top of the card on the 3D foam tape.  Stamp the sentiment from My Favorite Things – LLD Perk Up in Sapphire on Lagoon paper.  Cut out the  “and you”.    Put the sentiments as shown.

Some of the beans are a little big and don’t shake around very well.  Love the brown and blue combination.  The card smells amazing with the coffee beans in it.  =)

Perk Up!

Perk Up:

Perk Up is a stamp set “Kimmie Girl” from Unity Stamps.  It’s part of the Angiegirl collection.  Be forewarned, they are all super cute!  I picked this set up to use for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop because she looks like she’s ready for summer.

It’s all stamped on the CTMH watercolor paper, which is a smooth watercolor paper that allows for great movement of the watercolor and you can layer it.  I stamped Kimmie and the sentiment in Memento ink and masked her using masking fluid.  Then created the background with the watercolor palette from CTMH.

Once the background was dried, I rubbed of the masking fluid and painted Kimmie with the palette.  Take the CTMH Clear Shimmer Brush and go over the hearts on her shirt and on the cup to give them a little sparkle.  If you like using Wink of Stella, you need to check out the Shimmer Brushes from CTMH.  Better price point, more shimmer, and more juice!

Happiness in a Cup!

Happiness in a Cup!

This super fun card is “happy” because of all the bright colors and that for some of us, coffee is happiness.  Love the smell of fresh coffee beans and coffee brewing.  This card is linked to the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.  Stop and check out all the great cards. Better yet, whip out your own coffee project and join the fun.   It’s also made using the Freshly Made Sketches 292.

The papers are Prickly Pear.  The colors in the paper pack are nice and bright, just right for Summer.  Love the rainbow paper in the pack.  

The sketch is simple and fun to make.  The dies for the circles are from CTMH.  The coffee cup is Sugar Pea Design’s Coffee To Go Cup die set.  The sentiment is from Stamplorations Coffee Happy.

 No Worries Family Layout

Wanted to share another great layout from the workshop you can get free when you place a $25.00 order.  Cocoa cardstock is the base for all of the layouts in the workshop and you can get it for 25% off.  The No Worries sequins and the Enamel and Glitter Blue Dots Duo add the bling to the pages.

The title “Family” comes from the No Worries Compliments.  The mix in the Compliments is kraft chipboard and stickers.  On the arrows, put a piece of the scraps from one of the background and texture papers.

You can add flip flaps – 4×6, 3×4 and 3×3 – to get more pictures on the layout.   Here’s some close ups of the different elements from the pages that I just love.  You always need a layout for family events.

Dear Coffee

Dear Coffee:

This is my 3rd link for the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.  It’s created from the Little Dreamer Workshop Your Way paper pack.  I used the Sugar Pea Challenge for the  pattern.

Cut up the Picture My Life sheets.  Trim one of the backgrounds down and one with the unicorn down so they will fit on the card as shown.  Use the CTMH clear shimmer brush to color the unicorn in so he’s magical.  Use the Gold Shimmer Brush on his mane and tail.

The coffee cup comes from the Jack Cardmaking Stamp with dies.  Just love that I have a coffee cup with a die to use on any card I make!  Use 3D foam tape under the cup for dimension.

The sentiment “Dear Coffee” comes from I’m not sure where!  I can’t find the stamp on my desk!  Imagine that!  LOL.  Will update the post when I find it.

The little gems – Little Dreamer Glitter Gems are just awesome.  Last Seasonal Expressions, the Sugar Rush Glitter Gems stock sold out before the end of the Seasonal Expressions 1.  Another great embellishment to not miss out on and stock up on.  Bitty Sparkles are used to add little sparkles here and there.
