Hi, crafty friends! It’s Chark here today to show you a project I made for the Spring Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. When I think coffee, I think caffeine and when I think caffeine, I think of being a parent with a young kid. Where DO they get their energy?! I made up a little gift bag but this could also be turned into a card. You could fill this for new parents with a coffee gift card, caffeinated chocolate bars (my college-age daughter loves them), or any kind of fun new-parent gifts.


I stamped the Lil Hoot owl stamps first and colored them with Prismacolors. Then I added eyelids with a thin marker to make the big owl look sleepy. I mounted them on a copper colored stenciled background and added the digi sentiment below their branch. Then I just layered the panel on corrugated cardboard from some packaging and some blue pearl paper.

I think this would be a hit at a baby shower.

Here’s a close-up.


If you want to see more coffee goodness, hop over to the personal blogs of our talented Design Team at these links. Hope you’ll join in the Spring Hop and link up your project! I’m wishing you good luck on the plethora of prizes to be had on the hop, including the $25 gift code to a2z Scrapbooking Supplies!
