You Can Do It Coffee Card

The Coffee Lovers Blog Hop is going on through next week, and I thought it would be lots of fun to play along. Here's my You Can Do It coffee card.

I started with SRM's Coffee Plans stamp set. I haven't used my Copic Markers in a while, so I decided to uses those to create a fun background with the tall coffee cup that's part of the set.

I decided to play around with the color combo a bit. Instead of traditional fall colors, I drew inspiration from the beautiful reds and greens in my apple trees right now and how pretty they are against the bright blue fall sky. A little different that normal, but I like how it turned out.

I thought the "you can do it" sentiment would make for a fun card the next time I needed an encouragement card for a coffee loving friend.
Don't forget to check out the rest of the amazing cards for a bit of caffeinated inspiration.

Fall Fun Layout

It's September, which means school has started and fall is right around the corner. I'm getting ready for autumn with this fall fun layout.

I used a mixture of products on my layout, but the majority of the papers and embellishments are from Paper House's Autumn Woods collection. The paper was released last year, but they just released a new line of planner embellishments that are amazing! I couldn't resist using a bunch of them all at once on this layout.

There's a mix of cardstock stickers, epoxy stickers, puffy stickers, and even rice paper borders on this layout. The mix of textures with the rich autumn colors is so fun!

My favorite embellishments from the new line are the stick on pockets. There are so many ways to use them. I used one on this layout to hold and frame my journaling.

Are you excited for some fall fun, or are you hoping for quite a few more months of summer weather?

Road Trip Game Bags

My kids have grown up driving 6-8 hours in the car on a regular basis to go visit family. They're great car trippers. However, we have a 10 hour car trip coming up in a few weeks, so I thought it would be fun to do a little something extra. For this trip I've made some road trip game bags.

SRM's latest release included some really fun new printed bags in different sizes. These large 8 1/2" x 11" patterned bags were perfect for my printed games.

I used Summer Fun Puffy Clips from Paper House to close the bags. My kids can then use them for bookmarks on the trip. 

The internet is a wonderful place, and I decided not to re-invent the wheel. I found free printables that other people already created that I thought my kids might like. Games like I Spy (car brands), Would You Rather questions, and Mad Lib style fill in the blank travel stories.

I finished up the road trip game bags by embellishing them with a few cute Discover USA Puffy Stickers from Paper House. Do you have any road trips planed this summer?
