Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop – KatScrappiness Coffee and You

coffee lovers blog hop logo_spring

It’s that time of the year again and I am so excited to be participating in the “Spring Coffee Lover’s Blog Hop”.  I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Amy Tsuruta and the rest of her team responsible for facilitating this great hop!  I don’t know how you guys do it but you all rock!

Today I made a card showcasing products from the #KatScrappiness shop (www.katscrappiness.com).    THERE IS A SPECIAL COUPON CODE at the shop during the duration of the hop only, so hurry and shop for all the crafty products you’ve all wanted to order from the shop (use coupon code: “SPRINGCOFFEE” for 15% off your order).

I started out by stamping my bear image (Gerda Steiner Warm Fuzzies stamp set)  using my stamping tool with memento tuxedo black ink on Neenah Solar White card stock. I colored my image in with my Copic markers, then used my precision cut scissors to fuzzy-cut the image.

Using the largest of the Stitched Fancy Scalloped Rectangle dies, I die-cut my front panel with the Doodlebug Cream & Sugar 6 X 6 paper pad. I also created the half-circle window using a die from my stash.

To finish off my design, I die-cut the trees, stamped my sentiment on the banner, and adhered them all to the card. For my final touch, I used my new favorite, Crystal Nuvo Drops in Dandelion. Here is my card:

Teresa Collins Wanderlust Collection and Signature Essentials with Xyron

I am so excited to share with you today’s post. The Xyron design team is collaborating with the amazing Teresa Collins and we are showcasing the new products that will be available in the market soon, as well as her “Wanderlust” collection.  If you would like to check out Teresa Collins products, here is the link to her shop: http://www.teresacollinsstudio.com/products/

I travel a lot and earlier this month, I was able to meet with my side of the family to celebrate my Mother’s 80th birthday. We decided to travel to Hong Kong. My siblings and I had a blast. We went to Disney to be kids again. We had so much fun I had to do a layout with Teresa Collins Wanderlust collection to celebrate these moments. I don’t normally post personal photos on social media but this is a bit special to me.  I love my siblings and I am so thankful that we get to see each other often even though we live so far apart.

I started out by playing with my layout, taking photos here and there. I must have taken about 7 photo layouts and decided to go for the design that you see below.   I used my Xyron Creative Station and the Teresa Collins Mega Tape Runner to adhere all of my photos and accessories that I needed for the layout.  They are acid and lignin free and perfect to use for your precious scrapbook pages.  Here are the supplies I have used:

Here’s my layout:

Of course the new Teresa Collins Capture Life stamp set with the signature essentials had me thinking that they were perfect for my planner. Here are the products that I have used:

Before I decorated my planner, I wanted to create some beautiful planner paper clips with the Studio Gold essentials. Here’s how I made the paper clip. I chose some beautiful ribbons that will perfectly match the clips (pink and gold). Cut them about 7 inches and looped it through the paperclips, and secured it with hot glue. Here’s what it looks like:

This is how I decorated my planner during my Hong Kong trip .

I hope you all got inspired today. Incidentally, the new Xyron/Teresa Collins adhesives will be available in the market soon so please stay tuned. They are amazing!

Thanks for stopping by and have  an amazing day!

Tiki Brentwood Owl Hawaiian Vacation – Project 2

Hello JLO fans!  It’s another day to share my guest design project showcasing this adorable Tiki Brentwood Owl Hawaiian Vacation. This stamp set is now available for pre-order and will ship for free until release day on Saturday, March 17th.

JLO.New2014....4x4d_9802dd5.1406684724.1280.12ee80__84218.1420396885.1000.1000__21184.1488730597.450.450

I will be sharing a total of 3 projects and today is my second post.   I distressed my background on Neenah solar white card stock using Spun Sugar, Broken China and Scattered Straw distress inks.  I used my Copic white opaque paint to splatter those white dot details to the front panel.  I also used my gel pens to embellish the card further.  This is a simple card but I love how it turned out.
