Lawnscaping + Caffeine = Happiness Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my first ever blog hop!!!  I am so thrilled to be hopping along with the fine folks over at the Lawnscaping Challenge Blog!  This hop is sure to energize you - it's full of caffeine filled inspiration - just right to jolt those creative juices!


 There are so many prizes from so many fabulous sponsors and all you have to do to be entered to win is hop along with us and leave a comment on each fabulous project by Sunday, June 28th.  That's it!  Just tell all these uber talented crafters how much you enjoy their work and you could win something from one of these amazing sponsors:   Lawn FawnEllen HutsonThe Ink Road, Crafters CompanionSpectrum NoirThe Alley Way StampsNewtons NookFaber Castell, and Right at Home!


So for my project I chose to use the Lawn Fawn Love You A Latte stamp set, the Tag You're It stamp sets and coordinating dies by Lawn Fawn, Lawn Fawn's Scripty Sayings stamp set, and the Let's Polka Mon Amie 6x6 paper pad by Lawn Fawn (so I kind of like Lawn Fawn, in case you couldn't tell).  I used a couple of the little stamps from the set - the coffee bean and the tiny hearts - to create a custom pattern paper on some kraft cardstock.  I heat embossed the pattern with Cocoa Zing Embossing powder and then used my We R Memory Keepers Pillow Box Punch Board to create a cute little gift box.


For my tag I stamped the coffee drink from the set on some of the patterned papers from the Let's Polka Mon Amie paper pad and some white cardstock and paper pieced this little guy together.  I used Copic markers to add just the tiniest bit of shading, Wink of Stella on the coffee sleeve for some sparkle, and a wood veneer heart coated with glossy accents for shine.  The tag is stamped on kraft cardstock using the Thank You Tags stamp set and the Scripty Sayings stamp set.  It is heat embossed to match the pillow box.  I die cut the the kraft tag and a patterned tag and layered them up all cute.  I then used some Scotch Foam Tape to pop up my little coffee drink.  Finally, I tied it all together with some brown twine. 


Now it's time for you to get to hopping!  If you encounter any errors along the hop, please email Laurel directly at laurelbeard at me dot com.  Please do not leave them in the comments.  Here is the order for all the posts:
