Life Happens, Coffee Helps

If you’re a coffee lover like me, I’m sure you will appreciate this card, “Life Happens, Coffee Helps”.  It sure does.  I know I like at least one good size serving each morning to help me move on my way.

Stampin’ Up! continually offers the latest and greatest in products available on the market while making it easy to coordinate. This helps take the guess work out of what will work and what won’t.  To top that off, with the line up of coordinating dies and stamp sets, you can quickly cut out fun images and embellishments to adorn your mini works of art.

For instance, take this fun coffee card.  There are several elements that pull this coffee lovers card together:

  • stamped image
  • die cut image
  • corrugated heart
  • designer paper
  • ribbon

By adding a touch of stamping to your envelope, you can quickly coordinate your project into a gift set.

Using your standard SNAIL Adhesive to attach your elements together and Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop up the coffee cup to add some depth, this card pulls together quickly.

Have fun with your projects and try new things.  Even if they don’t turn out quite how you planned, it will help you step out of your comfort zone to potentially discover new techniques that you do love.

 

Fall Savings – 50% off September Paper Pumpkin

Ever heard of Paper Pumpkin?  Whether you are crafty or believe you aren’t but would like to try, Paper Pumpkin is a fantastic kit that arrives in the mail monthly.  Each month the box is filled with supplies and instructions to create a fun pre-planned project.  All you need are scissors and adhesive.

I love how these kits allow anyone from any skill level to be able to complete some awesome projects.

If you need to skip a month, you can simply log into  your account before the 10th of each month and click skip. If you decide after a month that it isn’t your cup of tea, simply log into your account and click cancel.  You can’t get much easier than this.

One of the reasons I love the kit is that it allows me to whip up a card or gift (depending on the kit) when I’m in a pinch and need something fast.  I don’t have to think about what I am going to create, as all of that has already been done for me. I simply need to stamp and assemble.

If you have never subscribed before and sign up between now and September 10th, you’ll receive the September kit at 50% off the regular price ($27.00/ month plus tax).  Simply go to Paper Pumpkin via this link and enter promo code HALFOFF0917.

I’ve heard that the September kit is a gorgeous fall themed kit!
