USA- Home

Sharing another patriotic tag with my new USA & house stamps. Background was created with red brick & blueprint sketch paints, with some picket fence distress paint dabbed on randomly.
 Houses were colored using watercolor pencils.
  A white zig marker for filling in the star.
The red white and blue  patriotic washi tapes came from a collection I purchased from Michaels. I love the interest they add to any project!
 Finishing tag with black soot to grunge it up, and a few blue sequins.

Happy Creating! Hugs,Tee

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop- Matchbooks for Tea

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop

Today I am sharing a couple of matchbooks I made to hold tea packets.
These are pretty simple to create and really make a cute extra to send along with your greeting card, or for a fun tea exchange swap!
I attached the tea packet inside the matchbook with a little zot to hold in place.
Grab your cuppa of choice and enjoy the hop! There's so much creativity to see!

Happy Creating! Tee

Summer Coffee Lovers Bloghop- Coffee Talk Handcrafted 7 x 9 Album

I am sharing an Album I made with heavy Card Stock and the pretty Coffee Talk Pattern Paper Collection. I worked on this for hours, I really don't know how many hours I've put in it to be exact, but it took awhile!
 I finally finished it last night-I think...

 I have always wanted to make one of these albums and decided to give it a go after purchasing the Coffee Talk Paper Collection. 
The Summer Coffee lovers Bloghop was my inspiration to start this project.
After finishing the cover. I then encountered the hidden hinge book binding system. 
I did struggle with that one! I finally got the concept though..whew.
