Open House – Coffee, Catalogs and In-Colors

This past weekend I had my Open House! It was SO much fun!

I started with a theme, coffee, and decided to go from there. I got coffee cups, pastries and even had a coffee themed gift bag –libbystamps, stampin up, Coffee Cafe, Coffee Cafe Bundle, Coffee Cups Framelits, Coffee Break  DSP, 2017-2018 Catalog

The three make’n takes were just as fun too!

I chose the new Coffee Break Suite and designed two cards to make –

libbystamps, stampin up, Coffee Cafe, Coffee Cafe Bundle, Coffee Cups Framelits, Coffee Break  DSP, 2017-2018 Catalog

Such pretty cards!

I had precut all the pieces to make it go quicker. Stamping of the sentiment and assembly were the only things that needed to be done.
