Coffee Crazy Day #4

I love to make different treat boxes & the Candy Box Topper Dies are so versatile and fun to use!

This was a pretty straight-forward project. I used a dark brown base card stock for both the top and bottom of the box topper. I cut a scrap strip of paper from the Coffee Paper Pack (about 3/4″ wide) and glued it to each side, not wrapping it around. You could also do this while the topper piece is flat and not yet assembled but I never seem to know exactly what I want to do until I start getting the topper into a 3D shape! lol
I repeated this with the box topper bottom piece as well. The decorative paper for the top of the box is approximately 1.75″x 1.75″.

I inked the edges of all the Coffee Paper with the Peanut Brittle ink and used the ink to highlight a bit more on the paper.

Then I cut the scalloped circle and circle with the Coffee Circle Dies & layered. Thanks a Latte is from the Coffee Circle Stamps & is stamped with the Vintage Sepia. I did find that I don’t care for that ink as much but my dark brown in Memento was too dry. Must buy reinkers!

I attached the circle to the front of the box topper with a 3D foam circle.

I filled the SM Candy Box with Gormet-Cafe Latte hard candy & dark chocolate-covered espresso beans, then tied with ribbon. The top and bottom are not attached to the SM Candy Box. I prefer to leave them only held with the ribbon. This makes it easier for the recipient to get to their coffee candy fix without destroying their beautiful gift! Alternatively, you could use SuperTack™ to make glue spots & stick the top & bottom to the SM Candy Box.

*Note: I prefer to use a wet glue to make my boxes, instead of tape. I use Glossy Accents as a nice, clear, quick-drying glue that really gets into both sides of the paper and HOLDS.

Coffee Crazy Day #3

This Center Step Card was fun, easy & so quick to make! It’s what I would call a “scrapbooker’s card” which to me, is perfect for International Scrapbook Day! I did stamp one little stamp on the front but other than that, someone “allergic” to stamping could totally create this card!

The dies make it super simple to choose your papers for the layers. Just place the die over the area of the paper that you want to use, hold in place with a little stencil tape, & cut. (You might need to trim away the excess paper around the die before sending it through your machine.)

Instead of trying to color a stamped image, I chose to use a focal part of the paper, fussy-cut it out & then I placed it onto dark brown cards stock (the same as the card base) and trimmed again, trying my best to leave about 1/16th of an inch. I am a bit out of practice, having been spoiled for so long by dies! HAHA!

Keep in mind, the top part of the inside is upside down! Remember to rotate the dies so that your pattern faces the right way when you put it in the card! LOL (I actually forgot myself this time). To make this card quickly (because I needed to make a lot of projects for this hop), I just used the largest die from each section in Layers #1. I think it turned out GREAT myself & I love that you can achieve different looks with the 3 sizes of die layers, yet you don’t have to use or layer with every single die in the set on every single card you make.

I also fussy-cut a little design from the paper to add to the lower right of the inside of the card. I’m not sure if you can see it in the photos (I’m so not good at pictures these days), but I added a small amount of SuperTack™ to places I wanted to add glitter (the bow on the cup, the dark lines in the cupcake, the centers of the flowers), and let it dry. SuperTack™ dries clear, raised and STICKY! Then, I just stuck my finger in the jar of glitter & rubbed it over the stickyness until it was all covered with glitter. So much easier to apply glitter when you don’t have to pour it out in a big puddle on everything, then try to get it all back into the jar!

Coffee Crazy Day #2

The K Cup Cover & Adapter Dies work perfectly with the Mini Coffee Holder Dies!
This set makes it so easy  to cover a K Cup for a Keurig or even better,
use the NEW Empty K Cups as a cute little treat cup for anything;
it doesn’t have to be coffee related.

Use the Gift Card Pouch Set to perfectly cover a gift card to add to your treat gift!

I used the NEW Paper Pack Coffee #3 & I fussy-cut a little cup & used it as a “tab” to pull the gift card up out of the holder.
The square piece that adapts the holder for the K cup is placed on top of the Mini Coffee Cup Holder.
I prefer to use a wet glue to put my boxes together as it secures better than “moveable glue” or double-sided tape.
*One of the SUPER things about the Paper Packs is that you can buy by the sheet! So if you LOVE 1 or 2 patterns & want to create a bunch of the same thing with them, you can order a bunch of just those patterns! They are also printed in vertical and horizontal orientation so that they can work well for things like this long Holder die. You’re welcome!

I also cut a piece of chipboard & used my dark brown Copic on the edges, then covered with matching paper from the pack and placed on the back. This will hold the ribbon in place, so it doesn’t slide up and down, reinforce the back of the holder because the gift card is heavy and makes it tip backwards, & also, it finishes off the back of the holder. You could use any heavy chipboard, even a piece of cereal box! Since you don’t see it, recycled chipboard is awesome!

For the Empty K Cups, the circle that comes out of the center of the holder is the PERFECT size for the cup lid!
Or, you can also use the circles that come with the K Cup Adapter Dies set. Either way, use a little SuperTack around the rim of the K cup, let dry until clear and SUPER STICKY, then place the circle of your choice over the treat-filled K cup.
That’s it! The best little treat cups ever!

How SWEET it is!

Friendship is the sweetest thing and when you share the same hobbies, it’s even SWEETER!
I was so privileged to spend a whole day in the company of my new friend, Jennifer Dove.
She gracefully took the time out of her busy schedule (leaving for Alaska) to have a play date with me
while I was in town (I’m 5 hours northeast of Phoenix).
On top of that, she had gifted me a collection of Copic Markers & spent the time teaching me how to use them.
A private lesson; what more could I ask for? NOTHING!
She is amazing! MWAH, Jenn!
