The Journey Begins…

Today I’m throwing my hat in with an amazing group of Coffee Loving Papercrafters to play in their blog hop. Forgive my rather drab website–this is my very first post! If I’m not mistaken, the festivities start here, at the 2018 Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.


My contribution is an invitation to join me for iced coffee at the beach! I’ve been meaning to make something with Little Acres Creations’ “Doggone Vacation” stamp set for a while, and what better way to use it than pairing it with a gigantic iced coffee in the sand.

The palms and the brightly painted boards in the background come from a summery paper pad by Craft Smith called Pacific Cove. The sand dunes were blended with Memento Luxe Peanut Brittle ink and edged with Ranger Distress ink Vintage Photo. The rest of the card was stamped with Lawn Fawndamentals Jet Black ink and colored with Copic markers.


If you love paper crafting and you’re fueled by caffeine, consider joining the Coffee Loving Papercrafters Facebook Group. If you’re ever in San Diego, share an iced coffee on the beach with me!

    1. Lori, your comments just tickle me. Thank you for all the kind words! Funny thing about that giant coffee—compared to the lot of you in the coffee group, im still a fairly new stamper. I don’t own much in the way of coffee stamps and I certainly didn’t have a giant iced coffee glass. So I drew it. Is that cheating? 😜


    1. I really appreciate the good vibes. It took a couple mod hours, for sure. My problem is, I never have a stretch of uninterrupted time, so everything seems to take forever. Thank you for your lovely comment.
