BUFFET MENU - Fall For Coffee, All Year Round.

Good morning:  Coffee, who loves coffee? I think the majority of us do.  I know a lot of Crafters who just need their coffee to get up and started.  Here is a fun layout that I created to inspire the coffee lover to write about him/herself. 

FALL IN LOVE WITH COFFEE
all year round.


 Here is Angie a true Coffee Lover. I have used her on so many cards and layouts.
She is a retired stamp, designed by Annie Rodrigue and was sold
at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps. 


The little coffee graphic on the bottom of the page inspired this whole layout. 

Spellebinders, Coffee die, Stickels - Cinnamon, Burlap flowers, 
Cricut - fonts and white gel pen for faux stitching. 


Bold Title, like Bold Coffee 
Paper collection from Michaels - Pumpkin Spice with
co-coordinating card stock. 

Thanks for peeking in....

Have a Happy Scrappy Day ~Bela~


BUFFET MENU - GYPSY ROSE

GYPSY ROSE

I just love the rich beauty of Fall....this Kaisercraft,
 Gypsy Rose inspired a jewel toned double page layout. 


The patterns in this collection are rustic and beautiful at the same time. 

 I believe they must travel the world looking at old doors. I just love working with doors.
Fussy cutting is one of my favourite past times.  I cut out the dream catcher for this side. 

Bo Bunny's Double Dot card stock is always my favourite to create with. 

Torn and inked edges makes for that vintage feel. 
Zip strips at the bottom of the Kaisercraft pages are wonderful 
for title accents. The Epherma pack is always jam packed 
with die cuts of a variety of shapes and sizes. 


Spellbinders, Fall acorn die set and American Crafts' golden glitter paper 
always adds accents and dimension to any project. 


What a beautiful Dreamcatcher



Nuvo Crystal Drops - Gold for accents around your page. 

I am just loving these doors.  

Thanks for peeking in.....

Have a happy scrappy day ~Bela~

What's on the MENU Monday?  Well it's soon to become Harvest time.  If it hasn't started already. On a drive to the country this past weekend, I seen quite a bit of amazing fall decor at the local fruit and vegetable stands.  It has inspired me to commence my Fall Creations.
