Merry Cafe

I love coffee.  I adore coffee. I live for coffee. Coffee keeps me sane and alive.  And now this…the cutest, most adorable coffee cup set I have seen in a while.  There are actually two coffee sets, one in the main catalogue called Coffee Cafe and a Xmas one called Merry Cafe, these stamps are from the Christmas one.  I’ll try and do a non-Christmas set of cards later in the week.  Unfortunately I am on a Christmas roll so you’ll just have to put up with that.


Materials Used are all Stampin’ Up!®

Stamp Set: Merry Cafe

Colours: Soft Sky, Real Red, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Soft Suede

Designer Paper: Coffee Break

Snowflake Sentiments

This might be my favourite Christmas set this year.  I’ve always loved the snowflake sets, they make such lovely Christmas cards.  And the matching thinlit die is pretty cool too, just adds something to the card that’s quick and easy to do.  And it’s very relaxing sitting there poking out the little bits from the snowflake lol.  The other thing I really like doing is not using traditional Christmas colours, those colours getting boring fast for me.  I was quite taken with this colour combo and will probably use it more this year.

Mini Pizza Box

Once again I start a post with I know it’s been a long time….7 months to be exact since I last posted. I’m amazed at how quickly the year goes.  I just wanted to share a quick post on something that’s in the 2017 Holiday Catalogue which I thought was just so cool.  These mini pizza boxes make great little gifts for teachers and friends.  You can get mini envelopes that fit the box and make cute little gift cards.  I think they’re adorable.  These didn’t take long at all to make.
