We “love” our coffee, “love” drinking coffee with those we “love and “love” creating with coffee as the theme, so we thought it would be the perfect day to share a little coffee “love” and inspire everyone to have coffee with a loved one, make someone you love a little coffee surprise or just have fun. Three of our amazing Crew Members come together today with 3 amazing coffee themed projects that are each very different, but all inspire us to create with that hot drink we love so much.
Coffee with a Friend by Kathy Adams
Let’s kick things off with this fun and bright project by Crew Member, Kathy Adams. So many coffee projects are in neutral tones, which of course we love, but this art piece just makes us smile.

Morning Coffee With That Special Him by Carly Poole
‘Canvas and Burlap Art with a touch of coffee is the perfect handmade gift for Valentine’s Day for my hubby! Coffee time is our favorite time of day. I feel like we should all take time out of our lives to enjoy the little things and the special moments that matter. Valentine’s Day is everyday, cherish each other.’ – Carly Poole

Canvas corp – Pink Burlap Sheet; Red burlap flower; Valentines paper scrap; Corrugated cardboard black; Black white live love laugh paper
Red card stock
Layers of burlap, papers, stamped items in any theme that is personal to someone you care about is the perfect handmade gift. The wonderful part about making it is you get to choose the colors, the theme, the style, the size and the function of the piece. With so many great stamps, stencils and papers out there, the options are truly endless.
3 – You can make your own flower by using any left over burlap or canvas pieces – if you want to change the color, Glimmer Mist is a great option.
4 – Stamp several images of coffee cup on three papers, fussy cut out each piece separately to match each other
5 – Use your favorite alphabet stickers, stencils or stamps to write on the burlap – keep in mind that burlap has wider weave so you will want to use a thicker font and add a bit of glue if you are using a sticker.
6 – You can design your canvas on the front or the back, this one is designed with the canvas backwards making a shadowbox. To help the space stand out, fill it in with a contrasting color like the black e-flute paper.
7 – Glue all the parts together to create a wonderful piece of art that you can put on a bookshelf, desk, dresser or somewhere special for all to see.
