Here is a fun project I made using this fun new stamp set..

I made a coaster box. My "Coffee Brawd" images are Digi images. Coloured with Prisma Colour pencil crayons and gamsol. I purchased some coasters at Michael's ($1.50). Covered both sides of the coasters, used my large corner rounder - perfect match with the coasters - punched the corners before adhering. Punched holes with crop-o-dile. Ovals were cut using Spellbinders. I sanded the edge of the brown oval. Placed Coffee Brawd on oval and adhered to coaster box. Tied coasters together. Here is a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers to make the coaster boxes. I put some fine wood fibers in the bottom of the box. Bagged up some coffee beans, tied on the ribbon and "Espresso Yourself" tag.

Below is the second project I made - I altered the coil bound journal using this fun stamp set.
Here is a tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers on how to alter and cover the journal/notebook.

I used the digi images for this - I used the coffee cup, cropped Coffee Brawd and the sentiment to fit inside the mug. Image was coloured with Prisma Colour pencil crayons and gamsol... I recover the inside and outside of the book... I am very pleased with how both of these projects turned out... I have lots of ideas for this fun stamp set...

Make sure to stop by all the DT blogs and leave comments... There are twelve prizes to give out...

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy stamping and creating.

Hugs... Pat
