National Coffee Day 2021

HAPPY NATIONAL COFFEE DAY!!! This is one of my favotite kind of national day… I am excited to celebrate this day with coffee and coffee loving cardmaking community!

We are celebrating this National Coffee Day with a fun blog hop with all the Super Sponsors. The blog hop starts at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog today.

I made these felt Bear Coffee Sleeve and matching card using the fun Bear Cozy Kit from Ellen Hutson, one of the Super Sponsors. This kit is packed with supplies you need to make cute coffee sleeve. You can stitch it or use fabric/felt glue. And it is kids friendly! I know my daughters will have fun making projects with this kit, too.

I decided to stitch all the pieces on my coffee sleeve this time. I used back-stitch this time. You can also use blanket stitch, if you want. In this Bear Cozy Kit, there is a die that you can use to cut the stitching holes on the sleeve. It makes stitching easier for sure.

For the card, I cut the similar colors cardstocks with the same dies and the make them card. The sentiment is from the A Breve Note Stamp Set by Julie Ebersole from Ellen Hutson, also.

So… that my projects to share with you on this National Coffee Day. Now, it is time to join the celebrations at Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog! You will find more inspirations from the team and hopping around the blogs for chances to enter the giveaway from each Super Sponsor.

Hope you all have a fabulous, caffeinated day. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

DIY Family Puzzle Picture Board

Hello hello hello… Happy Friday! Today, I would like to share with you a fun home decor project.

I made this Family Picture Board using the one of the new Clear Scraps Wooden Puzzles and Mini Shaker Family. I am sharing this project at the Clear Scraps Blog today.

I started with tracing each puzzle piece on each scrapbook paper with pencil. After that, I cut each of the scrapbook paper with scissors.

I added the cut out paper on top of each puzzle piece using the 3-in-1 Beacon Adhesive Glue. And then, I used wood glue to put together the puzzle and let it sit to dry.

While waiting for the puzzle to dry, I put together the Mini Shaker Family. I stacked each layer of the chipboard piece with 3-in-1 Beacon Adhesive Glue. I put a heavy book on top of it while the glue was drying.

I removed the clear plastic covers from both sides of the acetate plastic and then I glued it on the other chipboard piece using the same glue.

Before I added the top layer, I added some beads inside it as the shaker filler. And then I added the top layer with the same adhesive glue, too. I put the heavy book again on top of it while the glue was drying.

When the house puzzle pieces were glued well, I added the finished Mini Shaker Family on the middle top part of the puzzle board with 3-in-1 Beacon Adhesive Glue as the title of this picture board.

I added the thick burlap twine on top of the puzzle board and secure it with the same adhesive glue. After that, I added the mini clothes pins on the burlap twine. I simply clipped them, no glue. But if you would like to keep them in place, you can use either strong permanent glue adhesive or wood glue to secure the in place.

I hope this project give you another inspiration to make fun home decor with Clear Scraps.

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today. Have wonderful day!

DIY Card Caddy Gift Bag

Spring flowers are blooming. New season has arrived and that reminds us there is always new hope and mercy coming into our lives. Be strong, my friends

Today, I would like to share this card caddy gift bag that I made for a friend. This gift bag is filled with 10 handmade cards and envelopes.

On my card caddy gift bag, I used several Graciellie Designs gorgeous designs: Friends Like You digital stamp (flower), God’s Grace digital stamp (sentiment), and couple patterned paper from Pink & Blue Watercolored digital paper pack.

I cut out heavyweight white cardstock using Divinity Designs Card Caddy & Gift Bag Dies Set. I used strong permanent double sided-tape to put this card caddy gift bag together. For the handles, I used permanent liquid glue.

I printed couple patterned paper from the digital paper pack. I added a thin layer of liquid glue around the patterned paper and then while it was still tacky, I added the Therm O Web DecoFoil Gold sheet. Now, it has gold frame for extra shine.

I added those 2 patterned papers on the front of the card caddy gift bag using permanent adhesive glue. I added White pearls at four corners.

I cut out the printed sentiment using the Divinity Designs Double Stitched Rectangle Dies and then I added it on the bag with permanent adhesive glue.

For the 30-day coloring challenge at Kathy’s blog today, I colored the flower with Pearlescent watercolor paint. I really wish that my camera can capture the pearly look on the flower. I added the flower on the bag with 3D foam tape for extra dimension.

The gift is done and ready to be delivered. I hope this project sparks an inspiration for you today.
