Hi everyone! We are back for another fun Coffee Lover's Blog hop! I am excited to once again be a Super Sponsor for this year's event.  Be sure to check out the shop where I will be offering 15% off all digital images during the week of the hop.

I recently learned how to create a mini journal, and have gone a little crazy creating all sorts of theme'd mini journals.  The journals are so fun as you can add lots of little ephemera pieces, and I love working with ephemera.


I also created a Fall theme'd journal and shared a process video over on my You Tube channel. If you would like to see how to created this mini journal, you can find the video here

STAMPlorations Theme & Photo Challene - Stamps & Circles

Hi everyone and welcome to our November theme and Photo challenge over at STAMPlorations

I chose to use the photo as my inspiration today. I am using the stamp set called IN BLOOM: floral Bliss Trio.  I have outlined the stamped image using Gold Pen Touch. This is the first time i have tried this product and I was impressed on the ease of using it. 

To go along with the Circle prompt of the challenge, I die cut the rose in the center and popped it up with some foam tape to give it a spotlight affect. 

You can link up any kind of project as long as it's inspired by the theme, the photo, or both! 

We ask you to include stamping of some kind in your project (rubber, clear or digi stamps are all permitted).
