Coffee Love by Charmane Koch

 I don't know about you but I NEED my Coffee! 

My layout I am sharing with you today is of a couple of coffees Ash & I had at a cute Coffee Shop in the Central Market in South Australia after an overnight stay at the Hilton!

I just loved the coffee table/bench that we were sitting at - with the old newspapers! Love the quirkiness of it... but must of all LOVE the coffee! {and probably needed it after a big night too haha}

I used mostly Grateful Heart goodies mixed in with a few other Bee Arty goodies which I will list here for you!

I started off with Kraft Cardstock as the base. I did cut out a square from it so that I could matte me photo. I did this with a Black Cardstock piece as well, which I trimmed slightly to use as a matte for the Grateful Heart Paper that I used for the background of my layout - love the woodgrain paper! You can get the full Grateful Heart paper pack for only $20! It's such a timeless pack!

But why not get the Stencils, Dies & Stamps that go with the papers? I have used these all many times for different projects! The BUSY BEES are only $70!

I trimmed about 1 cm off each side of the Faith paper and distressed the edges, I stuck this to the Black Cardstock followed by the Kraft.

I tore the Hope paper to give a rough edge, distressed and curled the paper over to expose the other side slightly. I fussy cut part of the leftover paper to tuck behind the ripped cardboard & my photo matte.

I cut out from Kraft & White Cardstock a number of floral/leafy dies - Sweet Floral, Aussie Leaves & the love from the Flower Talk set - this I used for part of my title...

I then added flowers & wood veneers & bits from my stash...

Of course a Charms Creations Book Page Heart was a perfect match...

I also cut out a Butterfly from one of the Butterfly Cut Aparts -  so many to choose from!

And a Flair from the Assorted Flairs from Bee Arty.

This layout was one of my favourites at the Charms Creations At Home Retreat I organised - it was a Scraplift of a Tina Steinborner layout! It just came together so easily - don't you just love it when that happens?

Here's the Dies I used: 

Sweet Floral - CURRENTLY ONLY $10!
Aussie Leaves - a DEFINITE must have!
Flower Talk - perfect for titles! Another must have to your Die Collection!

Thanks for popping by! I hope I've inspired you with this GORGEOUS Paper Collection!
