Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop


Do you remember that fabulous Coffee Blog Hop that happened about a month back?  Well Ms. Amy Tsuruta has decided to do another!  YAY!

This hop has a ton.... I mean a TON of amazing creations and a whole boat load of prizes too.  So....read on!

First things first, I want to share my holiday coffee themed creation with you. What I've got here is a little creative packaging for a holiday gift.  I've put a coffee shop gift card inside mine, but I can also imagine lots of other goodies that might go in there.  Check this out.



What you see here is a clear coffee bean packing back which I picked up at the Container Store.  I made my own paper shreds and put the gift card inside.  I then made a fun and creative tag to go with this gift.  The tag is stamped with Simon Says Stamps What's Brewing Stamp Set.  I paper pieced it with the candy cane type paper from SU!  Next, I stamped and cut out the tiny gingerbread man from the Simon Says Stamp Don We Now Our Ugly Sweaters.  I stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches Hot Concoctions stamp set.  Then I used my Tim Holtz ink and distress tool to add a little coffee stain to the edges of my tag.  Next I tied on my green twine from the Twinery and finished it off with that sweet red clothespin.

Who's ready for some Prizes?!?!

OK- first, I will be offering up some blog candy.  I am offering this lovely prize which includes some Freckled Fawn products (clear bag, stickers, washi tape and brads) and this SU! stamp set.  All you have to do to be eligible to win this is comment on this blog to be eligible for that prize (be sure I have your contact info). Do so by 12/12/14 at 11:55 pm. 



Next, we have a TON of sponsored prizes....27 to be exact!  For those, you create a ***NEW***  holiday coffee or other favorite hot holiday drink project to be eligible (no back linking).  The Inlinkz will be available on Amy's blog.  You have from now until 11:55 pm on December 12th to link up!  The sponsors include:
