On cold and recent morning, I treated myself to a warm Chai Tea Latte from Starbucks.
I’m not a coffee drinker, so it’s rare that I stop in there, but I really needed something to warm me up. Since a Scrapbook Throwdown with Messtaken Identity a few months back where she challenged me to use a coffee sleeve in my crafting, I’ve been saving these whenever I go there – however infrequent. (You can see the challenge here.)
Through the magic of LOAD, Lain Ehmann somehow managed to have a prompt the next day to use a item on your scrapbook page that you created from scratch. I knew immediately I would use the coffee sleeve. I originally thought I would use whole somehow, but then I thought using a flower punch would be way more fun!
To keep with the theme, the background paper is a paper I had been practicing on using Heidi Swapp’s Shine spray. By mounting the picture on a piece of chipboard it tied in the color of the flowers. I added brads to the flowers that were the same colors as on the paper to tie it together even more.
I love the way this scrapbook page turned out! It makes me want to run out and buy another latte just so I can use the coffee sleeve again!
Do you have anything you like to use on your pages that isn’t necessarily a scrapbook product? I’d love to hear your ideas. Leave me a comment below.
