Let’s “Perk Up and Start the New Year” with our January Flavor of the Month kit. I have a little story to tell…I never drank coffee until I retired about 6 years ago from teaching school…cause who wants a cold cup of what is supposed to be hot coffee? So now…with my wonderful flavored creamer I enjoy a cup of coffee every morning and especially love drinking my coffee while watching crafty videos on YouTube…so sit back and take a look at our Coffee themed FOTM blog hop this month. If you have not already snagged your kit please head over to the Flavor of the Month page and scroll down to choose the level of kit you would like! Make sure you head to the website to check out the rafflecopter as well to enter to win a prize!
P.S. I am behind on choosing prizes so stay tuned for those winners on the Teresa Talks post on Feb. 1st.
Hello Everyone! I am so excited about this month’s kit. There are some great images to color and I really love that all the pattern paper found in the collections is double sided. I have a love/hate relationship with double sided paper – especially when I LOVE both sides, but it gives so much opportunity for different cards when making cards with just the kit or just the collection.
Card 1, Collection 1, Sketch 2
This card sketch was PERFECT for the ephemera that I received in this collection. I also love how this sketch shows off the many patterns of paper included without using too much. I cut down the top strip and bottom 2 strips to just a quarter inch, which still leaves plenty of pattern paper for more cards.
Card 2, Collection 2, Sketch 4
Who can resist Newton? This little kitty is super cute hanging from the donut and the paper found in this collection was some of my favorite. I hand stamped Newton and colored him with Copic markers. I then fussy cut him (which was fairly easy) and adhered him to the card with foam tape. I love the sentiment “Life is better with sprinkles”; I thought it was fitting since I really love sprinkles!
Card 3, Collection 3, Sketch 1
Mini Marci is adorable as ever! I hand stamped her and colored her to match the bold and bright patterns found in this collection. I added the cup, spoon and 2 mini coffee bean stickers; I liked they had a little dimension to them. To finish off the card, I added some stitched lines with a black gel pen around the circle.
Card 4, Collection 4, Sketch 3
Brew It Anya is full of New Year spirit with “You can Brew It”! This sweet and sassy image was hand stamped and colored with Copic markers. She was fussy cut and added to the card with foam tape.
Thank you so much for stopping by. If you’d like to see what I received in my kit, please check out my unboxing video on my YouTube channel.
