{Mixed Media Tutorial} Mini 2-sided Chalkboard by Melissa

Hi! It’s Melissa here with a fun mixed media tutorial to share with you today. In keeping with the back-to-school time of year, I've made a small, and reversible, chalkboard. I hope you enjoy seeing the process I used to create it.

STAMPlorations and the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop + New Coffee Stamps and Dies + Comment to Win

Heads up, STAMPlorations friends! There's a fun blog hop starting today for those of us who love or enjoy a cup of coffee (or tea or chocolate)! The hop is hosted by Amy Tsuruta and Chaitali Narla.

Amy and Chaitali have invited lots of sponsors for the hop, including STAMPlorations, who are offering tons of fabulous prizes! Play along by creating a fall-themed project featuring coffee, tea and/or cocoa images. Post it on your blog and then link it up at the linky found on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. The linky is open until Friday, September 30. Winners of sponsor prizes will be randomly drawn! (Psst! Keep scrolling for a free digi stamp you can use in your projects!)

Check out what we've created:





Guess what? We will randomly pick TWO (2) coffee- (or tea- or chocolate-) loving crafters to win a few more prizes: one will receive a $10 gift certificate to the shop and one will receive one coffee stamp (Framed Coffee To Go, Framed Coffee To Go 2, or Framed Coffee Cup) and one CUTplorations coffee die (Coffee, Oh Frap!, or Coffee Silhouette) -- winner's choice! Simply leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Friday, September 30. Easy peasy! We'll announce the winners on Monday, October 3.

And here's that free digi stamp you can use to create coffee projects to link up to the Fall Coffee Lovers blog hop for even more chances at the sponsor prizes. It's the digi stamp we currently offer on our Never-Ending Anything Goes Challenge page. If you use the image, be sure to link up your project there too because we draw two winners of gift certificates or stamp sets whenever we reach entries in multiples of 50 (we're at 1,085 entries and counting).

{Spotlight Project} Shirley Goes On A Christmas Card Dash

I was on the last minute for my Spotlight Project, and didn't really have anything in mind. It didn't help that last week I decided to repaint my craft room and re-arrange it, new furniture and all. So now I can't find anything!

But amongst the piles of stuff on my desk were some leftovers from the Christmas blog hop, and some patterned pre-folded card that I'd found in my clear-up, so I did a trolley-dash style cardmaking session and made four cards in just a few minutes.
