Hello friends.  Boy this week really gotten away from me.  I'm excited to share that I'm going on a scrapbook retreat with one of my best girlfriends, Melayne at the end of the week ( thur - sun ) !!!  So excited about that.  I haven't even started packing though.  I'm hoping to work on painting some gingerbread ornaments, as well as create tons of Christmas and birthday cards.  I also have a really fun card set / holder project that I will making for Christmas gifts this year as well.  I'm hoping that will keep me busy enough.  In the past I have really over packed.  But sometimes you just don't know what you will need.  So after work tomorrow the mad dash to pack with begin.

I was so excited about this week's theme over at The Cutting Cafe because it's all about coffee!!   I have a layout started, but didn't quite get it finished.  My daughter and her boyfriend are crazy about coffee and the images from "Got Coffee" were so perfect.  I will have to share that one later.  For the project I'm sharing today I used a cutting / PDF file called  "Coffee Cup Shaped Card".  It includes an optional gift card pocket for the inside of the card as well.  The Cutting Cafe also has a really cool "Coffee Cup Holder"as well.  I'm sure some of the girls will be sharing some great inspiration using all three of these files over on the DT Blog for our Wednesday DT reveal.  THE POST DOESN'T USUALLY GO LIVE TIL WED AFTERNOON.   Regina is so generous and every week she does a random drawing for all those who leave comments so you definitely want to check it out.

I found the perfect shabby chic paper pad to use with this one, DCWV "The Primrose".

Hope you are inspired to create your own coffee inspired project.  If you do, link me up so I can check it out!

Have a fabulous week!

Cool Beans Gift Card Holder

Ok ... so I'm loving this gift card holder. 
Guess how many people I know who love getting Starbucks gift cards??  Bunches!!  Ok, so I know some of you out there don't like to give gift cards.  You think it's not very "thoughtful" or personal.  I beg to differ!!   I would rather receive a gift card anyday, to my favorite store, where I can pick out the perfect item, that I really want, instead of receiving something that will end up in the next garage sale.  And if I'm going to spend money on a gift I want the same to be true for my recipient.  Besides it's thoughtful to find out where they like to shop!!   You could actually create a few of the actual holders and have them on standby.  Then you could add stamped images, ribbon later when ever an occasion arises.  You know...  for that last minute ... oh crap I forgot ... moment ! 
Never happens to me, hehe!!
