Francine has created a fabulous Coffee themed collage using a wooden board as a base.
A metal coffee sign, a variety of beautiful pictures, Coffee ephemera and laminated stickers have been adhered to create the look, Francine has also used a selection of Starbucks cards and a Coffee coaster. We love how all the elements have been used to create a collage which captures the heart of this Months Mood board.

Here I have created a Journal pocket using some wonderful Coffee theme paper, Mulberry roses, a metal spoon embellishment and some Tim Holtz film strip ribbon. I have also used this darling vintage photo of these two little girls.

Aditi and Sunila have created their beautiful journal spread using layers of gesso, Lindy's magicals, and water stamping and stenciling with modelling paste, Coffee themed embellishment have been used to complete the final look. 


Zahraa has created her beautiful card using Kraft card stock, Stempler rubber stamps, Mowed lawn and Vintage photo distress inks. A wonderful friendship and Coffee themed sentiment has also been used to complete the final look.


Henriette has created a beautiful card, using paper from Maja Design, flowers, pearls and 
 lace paper. Metal corner embellishments and a wonderful vintage Fabscraps image have also been used.


Frederique has made a beautiful tag using a Coffee cup stamp and has created this crackle Mosaic effect using Emerald Creek embossing powders, in shades Mercury Rising and Just Java.
