Club Scrap Transformation Blog Hop with coffee

Welcome to another of our monthly Blog Hops
The kit this month is called Transformations
and has some beautiful colors to work with.
Hope you came over here from 
and seen what wonderful and inspiring
art she has been making for you.

As I am also playing this week with the
I have a wonderful gift idea for you..
You can use this either for a coffee gift or a tea gift,
whatever you prefer.
This is the front

and this is the back.
You add a coffee packet or a tea bag
and some cookies and ready is your gift.
But the question is:
How to make it!

Well here is the tutorial:
Start by cutting off a strip of 3,5 inch from a piece 
of 12 x 12 inch paper. We are working wit a 12 x 8,5
piece of paper.

Now we are going to score.
You can draw the lines and use a bonefolder to fold
or take a score-board if you have one.

(click on the picture for a larger-better version)

Here are the measurements for scoring:
on the short side you score at: 2,5 inch and 6 inch
Now on the long side we make some more scores at:
1,25 - 2,5 - 5 - 7 - 9,5 and 10,75 inch

When you did all this, you need scissors to cut
of 4 corners of 2,5 x 2,5 inch like you see
on the template.
Now it is folding time.
Start by folding these corners towards the inside.

Next you foldone pard to the inside

and then the other part over the first part.

You see all the folding lines now to make
the gift wrap. The outside flaps are also folded
and they are the top of the gift.
The middle part is the bottomand lift the sides.

I put some real Dutch "speculaas" in a
bag and took a bag of green tea.
Made a cute card to go with the gift.
I printed the words on a piece of paper
and used the stencil that came with the kit
and a pencil to draw the rocks around the words.
Cutting out the rocks, adding some ink
and taping themwith foam tape to
the background (that I stamped with the
ginko leave from the UM stamps.
Now adding everything together and on top
made some holes through the flaps for adding a ribbon.
adding the tea bag in one side

and the card on the other side.
Making a nice bow in the ribbon with some 
embellishments and you are ready!

Oh yes and here they both are:
coffee or tea,whatever you prefer!

In the coffee variation I added the same coockies
and some pumpkin latte bags.

And this is the small card that Imade,
using the September tool (using a knife)
technique even on this tiny card!

Well I hope I have given you a nice idea, but there
are many more with this beautiful
Transformation kit.

has made for great project on

Coffeelovingcardmakers Blog Hop: Day 5

Welcome to another fun day of

Today is also National Coffee Day
And because of this I have some 

You know you can be part of this to,
just hop over to the blog and add your
card on the linky party!
Lots of fun prizes to win.

Today I used Stampin'Up! washi tape for these cards.
These are some take10 cards: easy to make and fun.

So start with some washi tape rolls. I used 3 different  kinds.
I have a die of a cup and card paper.
The die is from taylored expressions.

Start wit taping the washi tape to the panel of the card.
You can make any pattern you like.
Now I took some stamps to add a sentiment
at the bottom of the card.
The Halloween wish is by Tim Holtz
and the Java stamp is by Club Scrap.

On a smaller piece of cardstock I cut out the cups.
First I cut one cup, then turned over the paper and did the
other cup so I got the ears both on the outside.
Using a white gelpen around the border,
adding a ribbon and with foam tape add this
iece on top of the washi tape.
Now tape the panel to the card with foam tape. Done!
For this card I added the washi tape horizontal
instead of vertical. This way the card looks a little different,
but how you make it is the same. Quick cards if you need a lot.

And now for some blog candy:

I have this stamp for one of you
who leave a comment to my blog.
I would love it if you decide to become a
follower of my blog too!

Thanks for looking!

Have  a creative day!

Coffeeloverscardmakers Blog Hop: Day 2

Today I share a project for you
that you can use for a gift.
It is a decorated post it block.
I found a video online and that inspired me to make
this. You can find it here.

The construction of the holder is the same
as on the video tutorial. Only I used a larger
piece of paper 5,5 x 7,5 inch and folded
the paper at 3,5 inch and 4 inch
and also cut of the 1/4 strip of paper.
I enlarged the tabs by 1/2 an inch to make more
room for the sentiment.

For this project I used  the following:

Michael Strong's coffee stamps
and Pumpkin Harvest stamp.
The sentiment is typed up with the computer
Club Scrap Coffee ring
This is the background paper I created with the Club Scrap
coffee ring stamp.
I typed up the sentiment with the computer
and punched it out with the SU! window punch.

On top of this I added the pumpkin coffee!
Here in The Netherland I cannot find this coffee,
but i have tasted it in the USA and I love it
)that is why i added the love buttons'.

Here you see all the layers of the project.
The notbook,the coffee cup and the button.

Of course I had to stamp something on 
the first page of the note pad!

Thank you for looking!

Have a creative day!
