Don’t Worry – Be Frappy! Upcycled Starbucks Post-It Pen Holder

Good afternoon! I’m glad you could stop by for my next project for the Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.


For this project, I upcycled the box from the recent Starbuck promo (the one that had the stickers in it), and turned it into a fun Post-It and pen holder, printing up my own sentiment:

Ahhh, fraps… the refreshing drink of summer!


Materials Used:

  • Spellbinders Marvelous Squares Dies
  • Core’dinations aqua and white cardstock
  • Pebbles, Inc. Chalks
  • Simply Defined “Stay Put” All Purposed Liquid Adhesive
  • Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L adhesive strips runner
  • Starbucks promo box and stickers

I am playing along with the Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop click on it for more information on how you can join the fun.

I’m glad you stopped by today!

Sending a Whole Latte Love

There are only two days left to the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! There are already over 500 lovely creations for you to peruse, so feel free to hop on over… there are lots of prizes for submissions and oodles of blog candy, too!


Today’s card is a simple and fun fall card using the Latte Love free digi from hop sponsor Verve Stamps. (You can find it HERE.) I also used the Vive la Verve Week two September sketch to create this card (You can find it HERE.):


And the Verve Stamps September Autumn Lovelies color palette (Which you can find HERE.):


I still had part of that Dunkin’ Donuts sleeve, so addid it in the mix along with a fabric leaf with Wink of Stella brushed on the leaves for some frosty morning shine, since I hear it’s already cold up North. It’s still broiling hot down here in South Florida. Would everyone please step outside, face South, take a deep breath and blow some of that cooler air down here, please!!


Materials used:

  • Verve Stamps Latte Love digi set, currently free, which you can find here:
  • Spellbinders die: Marvelous Squares
  • Copic markers: R29, R89, YG63, YR04, YR24, W3
  • Papertrey Ink ribbon: Canyon Clay
  • Nicole Maple Leaves pack
  • Zig Wink of Stella, clear
  • DCWV card
  • Dunkin’ Donuts coffee sleeve
  • Tombow Xtreme permanent adhesive

I am entering this in the following sketches and hops:



If you missed my posts with blog candy, you can find them HERE and HERE. Thanks SO much for all your encouraging comments and for all my followers, old and new! Tomorrow is the last day of the hop, so I won’t be bothering you near as often after that – until the next hop, that is! : )
