While I am away....

I wanted to inspire you with something I am missing right now. My coffee!
Here is a little gift ensemble that is easy to create but oh so fun in the packaging!
This is done with a mixture of papercraft products and fabrics.
The coffee bag holder is my fav! It is made from felt (yeah you don't have to finish edges!) and fun fabric from Michael Miller (Andalucia line). I stamped my Kim Hughes images on my fabric and colored them with my copics before stitching them to my bag.

The little handle for you to carry the bag is cut with a spellbinder die and LOOK I didn't waste the "cut out part", I pinned it to the front.
Here is how I tied in the fabric with my card. I just used my pinking shears along the edge and stitched it down. I then colored the same images on natural cardstock and colored them with copics, stitching down to secure. Cute, simple and easy!
K....it doesn't get easier than this! I used scraps from cutting the edges of my fabric and used them at my tag top as well as on the front. I used the smallest heart die cut for the little corner accent to tie in that theme as well.

I'm looking forward to flying back home tomorrow. The certification classes went really well out here!
The class I taught was SO gracious as it took me a few moments in the morning to work out my nerves. Once I started coloring though....I was fine.

Have a great day!

I love this set, Sherrie! The felt bag is super fabulous! I just love how you incorporate fabric into your projects! It was great meeting you in Toronto and I think we had the best table too, smile! Thanks for all the extra little tips...you have really inspired me to use my Copics in new ways and to get the most from my investment! I think the airbrush system is definitely the next step!!!
Thanks again,
