Crazy for Coffee - April '16

Hello, Tracey here as the hostess for the April The Kits of Occasions! The title for this month's kit is Crazy for Coffee. For quite a while now coffee themed projects have been trending and most if not all stamp companies have been creating unique stamps and dies that are coffee themed. I pulled together stamps, dies and patterned papers to give to the team so that they could put whatever spin on them that they wanted. I realize that not everybody is crazy for coffee, like I am, but there are opportunities if you are a coffee lover, a tea lover or maybe you are not a lover of either but enjoy the challenge of making a project using these fun elements. Likely there is someone you know that you can make coffee themed projects for!

The papers I used for the kit are Authentique, Durable collection and I added cardstock from Bazzill, Tim Holtz and Papertrey Ink. All the dies and stamps I used can be found in the Monthly Kit Supplies 2016 link at the top of the page on the 12 Kits blog. The theme being what it is I asked the 'queen' of coffee projects Amy Tsuruta to be my guest for this month.

Now all that being said, let's get on with the Blog Hop. Each one of the links will take you to the designer's personal blog where they have showcased all the projects that they have made with this month's kit. 

Make sure you comment here and along the way, I have a little surprise to send out to one lucky commenter this month, chosen randomly from one of the blogs along the hop!
