Cocoa (coffee) Craving Turtle from Little Scraps from Heaven

Little Scraps from Heaven released this cute freebie today. Since I am participating in the 2017 Spring Coffee Lovers Blog hop, I thought this was perfect timing. 
As I said this file Coffee Craving Turtle is free. It is only free for one week. It comes with digital papers and digi stamp as well.


I cut the pieces with my Cricut Explore and then inked the edges with Color Box inks and chalks. I added the grass and flowers from a file in Cricut Design space. 3D foam squares were used to create dimension. 
I found a paper with foliage on it and used it for the background paper.

Thanks for stopping by. Please leave a comment at the bottom of the blog post.

Teapot card from Cricut Design Space

Today I chose to make this cute teapot card for the Cricut Design Space Make it Now projects.

I added flower and a sheer ribbon to the top corner. I used Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker to outline the teapot.

Jessica Lynn Original Spring 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop Digital Rubber Stamp

Today I chose to use the free down from JessicaLynnOriginal.Com.

I used a Make It Now file from Cricut Design Studio. I inked the edges with ColorBox inks and chalks. I added shiny peach flowers to match the Pale Pink  (PP1 and PP2) flowers I colored. 
I used HB1 and HB2 for the cup. I reinforced the marker colors with pencils from the Primaries Colorblend Pencils (Antique Rose, Mauve, Velvet, and Blackberry). I used the Spectrum Noir blending solution to make the colors blend better.

Happy coloring and crafting!


Kadoodlebug has the cutest fairies

These little fairies are sure to brighten any little (or big) girl's day.
This is 3 different files found here, here, and here.
They are the digi stamps called: Spring Flower, Spring Wand, and Spring Mushroom Fairies.
I colored them with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, Spectrum Noir Colorblend pencils, and Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers.
The butterfly borders are from Martha Stewart and can be found here.
The solid paper is Colorbok from Walmart.

Coffee Pod Cart

For my second project for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop 
I chose to make this cute little Coffe Pod Cart.
The cute file comes from SVG Cuts and is called Harvest Sunset. This cute little coffee cart can be made for different seasons and events. How about an egg holder for the Easter Eggs coming up?

The file can be found here.

Kadoodlebug Designs I Love Cocoa

Who LOVES cocoa?
I do.
Today I chose to do a 2-page layout. The files I used are Hot Cocoa Bears and Cutie KaToodles - Winter Hot Cocoa Bear. (Click on the file names to go to the Kadoodlebug Designs files.)

Why cocoa and warm clothes in spring? I like to be nice and warm when I go camping. The weather this year has been crazy. The end of March and it is cold and snowy.

Supplies used:
Colorbok cardstock is found at Walmart.
ColorBox Petal Point inks and Chalks
Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers
Petaloo flowers (Ones I used I guess are no longer available)
 3D Foam aquares
Crafter's Companion Tape Runner
Spring Coffee Lover's Blog Hop
