Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!


Hello there!  Today I am so excited to be participating in a COFFEE themed blog hop!  My goodness, I love all things coffee... my Keurig, flavored creamer, hot coffee, iced coffee, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, coffee icecream... and even coffee themed stamps!  Imagine my excitement when an invite to this blog hop popped up on my facebook feed!

If you want to start at the beginning of the hop, click here.

And along for the ride are a long list of amazing sponsors!


I'm sure you've guessed by now that all of the projects on today's hop will be coffee themed, and I am just so excited to hop along and check out all of the java inspired goodness!

If you've been a blog follower of mine for any bit of time now, it's no secret that I LOVE Lawn Fawn stamps (they happen to be a sponsor today!).  They are my most favorite.  I had been wishing for a hot beverage themed set from them for awhile, and I was delighted to see the new Love You a Latte set in their winter release (which is ALL AMAZING, btw!)  For  my project today, I decided to decorate a Starbucks To-Go cup and make a coordinating gift card holder.  Starbucks sells these plastic travel mugs for $1 each.  Only a buck!  I used the smaller banner from the Stitched Party Banners, and cut it from a fun brown plaid paper from new Sweater Weather 6x6 paper pad.  I discovered that the circle die that comes in banner die set cuts a circle just slightly bigger than the Starbucks emblem on the cup!  How fun!  So I made a window banner, tied it around the cup with some Hot Cocoa Lawn Trimmings, and added a little stamped to-go cup and some coffee beans to the front.  I love his smile. :)

I had an idea when I saw the new Goodie Bag die, to create a gift card sleeve, rather than a little gift bag.  I simply cut two pieces of card stock with the die, and then cut off the parts of the diecut that would usually form the front and  back of the die.  I adhered those two pieces together with some Scor-tape. along the sides and bottom. I only put adhesive about 3/4 of the way up the sides though, so that I could easily slip a gift card and some paper shred inside.  You could also use tissue paper in place of the paper shred if you prefer.

I am thinking these would make cute Christmas gifts!
