2016 Winter Coffee Lover Blog Hop


I really don’t know how Amy Tsuruta, of Tsuruta Designs, is able to juggle all that she does…I suppose it’s sheer will power and strong coffee fueling her!  She is hosting another Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop and we’re all wondering if we will surpass the 850+ participants from the last blog hop.  I hope you’ll join us – or at the very least, enjoy the amazing variety and creativity in all of the entries.

I am a Super Sponsor but, of course I can’t resist playing along as well!


Stamps:  Thoughtful Flowers – CTMH, Perk Up & sentiment – a|s  Other:  stitched circle die, silver glitter, red twine – a|s, Embossing plate – Cuttlebug

I have been a sponsor in the past and was thrilled to continue this tradition.  For the Winter Coffee Lover’s blog hop I have CTMH’s Thoughtful Flowers as my prize package.  At first glance you may think, “aw…that’s not coffee related!” but I was inspired by the Starbucks red cups when I designed my card using that very set!  I think you will LOVE the variety of flowers and sentiments – there is so much crafty potential here.


For a chance to win this set or one of the other great prizes from the MANY other sponsors (wow!!), you must link up a newly created project especially for the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop  (holiday/winter themed coffee / or other favorite hot beverage project)…starting Dec 9 at 9:00 am eastern, and you have until 11:55 pm pacific on Friday, December 16th to link up…the more the merrier!  I hear there will be FLASH prizes as well.  Winners will be announced Dec 18.

 Want one more chance to win?
Leave a comment below (it’s good to leave contact info for winner notification) before midnight, Dec 16th to enter into a drawing for this package of large wooden spoons.  I bought these for this hop before I knew amuse studio was closing and my new CTMH kit arrives this weekend so I’m in between two worlds right now.  But that’s okay – it’s all good in the world for papercrafting!  By the way, I’ve shared some fun ideas for stamping on or dipping these spoons into chocolate on my blog before.
   Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Enjoy your cup of coffee!

  2. Those flowers on your cup in red and white is just great.
    Real Christmas-look.

  3. Chris – It’s awesome! I love red, black and white together. I will be linking up a card with that color scheme later in the hop. Love the sweet floral set you used in inspiration for Starbucks red cups. And those fun spoons would be great to use on a project. Thank you for being a Super Sponsor.


  4. Swoon! This. card. Seriously! How absolutely beautiful – and spot on to the red cups I’m seeing zipping around in cars and drive throughs and chats with friends! Your flower spin to the coffee is sheer perfection – and a beautiful contrast to the white with the red and black. Just gorgeous! Thanks for your stop on the hop, being a super sponsor, and a Merry Christmas to you!

    1. Hi Jerrie! You won my blog prize – the wooden spoons πŸ™‚ I’ve tried to click on your name to notify you but it just goes to a dead end for me…probably a glitch on my end. Please send me your mailing address!


  6. Thank you for being a Super Sponsor! I love how you incorporated something “not coffee themed” onto your cup in such a lovely way. Great job πŸ™‚ Those wooden spoons have intrigued me…I am off to discover how they can be used in card making.
