This is a cute Cup project featured on our Stampin Up Demonstrator site. We are truly blessed to have so MANY resources on there!
I am including the template link pdf for you. There are NO directions for it, even for us. I thought you would be inspired to create a few of these for your coffee, tea & cocoa drinking friends as we still have some cooler weather around the nation (insert frowny face).
They are pretty easy to create, I made some a couple years ago for a craft fair and sold them all. (about 25) Our cute stamp set Morning Cup # 120489 (clear block set) would be awesome stamped in the tag!
Especially the saying- "Caffeine isn't a drug, it's a vitamin!" lolol And Inside a packet of coffee, tea or cocoa of course and even a gift card to Starbucks or something they love added in! What a fabulous gift idea for birthdays, co-workers, friends, family etc!!! Even a cup for an expectant mom of Herbal Tea would be appreciated!
I am feeling better, still have the sniffles and a cough but on my way to recovery. Pneumonia is NO fun! And, on Monday I started a new job. I took this extra work so that I could help my daughter in college and pay a few extra bills. With the rising cost of absolutely "everything", a 3rd income to our house is really going to help us.
Please bear with me while I get used to the new arrangement, create my new schedule and get in a solid routine. I will see you tomorrow with some projects I created yesterday!
Have an awesome day everyone! Thanks for stopping by!

Featuring Katie, my favorite Daughter lol actually she is my only daughter! (although I have several awesome step daughters)
I created this using My Digital Studio.
Details follow the page
Remember the background pages I created earlier this week and showed them here on the blog? Well I used that Same idea for this page!
In My Digital Studio:
I started with a multi option 12x12 page
I colored it pink pirouette
I added a square punch on the left side of the page and filled it with Designer paper Night and Day #5
I changed the opacity of the designer paper to about 20%
I then Added from the stamp selection the Presto Overlay Floral Frame and changed the color to Early Espresso
Then I changed the opacity to 50 and I right clicked on the overlay and chose send backwards. That way it is behind the photos and text.
I added Katie's beautiful photo and matted it in white to match her chiffon jacket. You will notice that the large photo has a wider white border and drop shading behind it.
I did that because I wanted that photo to be the focal point of the page.
Before adding the other photos, I put in a photo box, sized it to the size I wanted and then I clicked copy and paste and pasted in 2 more so they would all be exactly the same size.
I then clicked each photo box and added the photo of the dress that I wanted and added a tiny white mat to each photo- I thought after doing that~ I could have added the tiny white mat to the photo box and THEN copied and pasted them! I will remember that next time ( I hope! lol)
I added the (text) wording in 2 different Text boxes using the Lucinda Handwriting font from my computer. And just for good measure I right clicked on each text box and chose bring to front. The text color is black to match her glasses.
For a finishing touch, I added the rhinestones from the embellishments option to the corners to tie it to the beautiful rhinestones on her dress!
I think she is going to love this page! Now I only have about 122 more photos of prom to get onto pages for her! lolol "someday"
This entire page took me about 15 minutes to create! And the fun part? I didnt have to cut any paper and I had NO waste either!
