Last night I took another free on-line class atCornish Heritage Farms. Lisa Strahl was the person to head this class this week. What fun I had. I was not able to put the finishing touches on my project due to lack of time once again. Wow! I have been very bust every day this week so far. Anyway, I would love to share with you what we learned last night.
This was such a simple project to make. I all ready have 10 other cup pieces all made. Now all I need to do is put them together and I will have another home made Christmas gift to give. I can not tell you how excited I am to have some of my holiday projects all made or almost made. I will be giving all of you a list of what I used. Here is a picture of the contents that I put in my cup.
I used some shredded craft paper to put at the bottom of the cup. I added a a package of Taster's Choice Decaffeinated coffee on the go, 2 sticks of sugar, and 2 International Delight Hazelnut creamer singles. The thin black stick that has a decoration on top of it is stir stick. All this cup needs is some boiling water and Bam! You have a nice cup of Hazelnut coffee to go. How cool is that! I am going to make some with Hot chocolate and add a regular creamer and a small package of mini marshmallows, How about adding a package of hot apple cider and add a Cinnamon stick.You could also do tea too. I have decided to give all of my cups to my family members, and the woman who delivers my mail as a little Christmas gift. The kids will all be getting hot chocolate. Just think how awesome it would be to make and give one of these cups to your co-workers, teaches,Mail men or women, the UPS man who delivers all of the goodies that you order all year.:) There are so many people who would love this gift. Okay, I will stop rambling on about this but I am truly excited that I am getting some of my Christmas gifts done now thanks to CHF. Here are the products that I used.
Kraft and Whisper White from Stampin' UP! I used Razzleberry Dark from Prism papers.
Adirondack Pitch Black from Ranger. Vintage Photo Distress Ink from Ranger, Crimson Red Versafine from Tsukneo and Cloud White Versamagic chalk ink.
Burgundy stickles, from Ranger, Puffy Velvet fabric marker purchased from Stamping Memories,red Austrian crystal, Coffee cup with lid purchased at Shaw's and black stir sticks from Wal-mart. I also used Marvy Uchida punches. Due to my not having a lot of the paper products on hand I did a lot of running around to get them. I am good to go now. :)
DP and stippling.
Although I used the same set of stamps that were used for the original coffee wrap I changed it to the way that I felt it would work for me. Truly, this is a fun project to make. Go check it out.Holiday drink wrap.
I hope you do not mind but I am going to put a little plug in here for myself. Yesterday one of my cards and the story behind it was put on the Creative Imaginations blog. This is a huge Honor for me and I just wanted to share it with all of you. So many good things have been happening for me lately and I am so grateful and feel so blessed. It means so much to me when all of you leave a comment or write to me privately telling me that you like my work. I'm sure that all of you who blog feel the same way. Thanks for supporting me.
I am still walking every evening or night that we do not have a storm or rain. I am feeling lots stronger and that as Martha Stewart would say "Is a very good thing." I hope that all of you are doing something that is good for you at least once a day. Maybe eating some of the fresh fruit and veggies that are available to us right now. Perhaps taking a walk when ever possible, reading a good book or maybe chatting with your friends and family. Be good to yourself......................life is too short have some fun and don't forget to Smile. :)
