The 12 Kits of Occasions ~ Crazy for Coffee!



Hi there! I'm here today with my April 12 Kits of Occasions post! Tracey is our hostess this month with a delightful kit called Crazy for Coffee. Aren't the colors she included for us pretty! I'm not a coffee drinker (GASP!!) but I had a lot of fun creating and will pass these along to my coffee drinking family to share with others. I've added links to anything I used that did not come in the kit. Info on everything else can be found on the 12 Kits blog.


I layered up some of the pretty papers then die cut a sentiment using a Reverse Confetti tag to go along with the cute cup. I added my own Precious Remembrance Shop circles to the PP for some coffee stains!


Being the polka dot lover that I am, this paper made me happy! I added loads of Wink of Stella to the coffee in the cups. I was able to split this sentiment using a Pretty Pink Posh die cut and some fussing cutting.


I love this plaid paper! This adorable bear, the sentiment (Reverse Confetti banner die) and simple matting were all it needed!


Last but not least, a dressed up coffee bag. I dry embossed the kraft vellum from the kit then layered on the sprinkled donuts. I loaded up the donuts with Ranger Glossy Accents before adding the sequins to give them that glazed donut look! The white tag is one from my stash along with the polka dot circle. I love this little "cool beans" sentiment. I say that all the time LOL!!

I'm off to visit my teammates and hope you will do the same! Thanks so much for spending a little time with me today. ~Lisa

These are so fabulous Lisa! I'm completely smitten by your first card...how you layered, embellished, and designed it..LOVE! I'm totally wishing I had put my bear on the plaid paper now. Love that idea so much better. Your lack of coffee drinking didn't affect your ability to create at all. I think mine did. : )

I fell in love with your fabulous coffee bag when I first saw your 12 Kits post. It's just awesome with the fun donuts! Fantastic designs on all your cards too. I always first lay all my supplies out on the table and fit images with colors and papers. I thought that little bear was perfect with that plaid, so it's fun to see that you agreed!

Hi Lisa.. oh my.. things I wish I'd thought of that I adore here.. the embossed kraft vellum - gorgeous with the sprinkled donuts, and the stamped coffee rings on the pattern paper! All your cards are amazing - you totally knocked this one out! And you used the tricky ingredient too - the wood clips!
