Treat Yourself to Some Coffee by Lia Abdullah

And to let the people around you know that you're on a 'coffee break', hang up this sign!



Anybody who knows me know that I love my dose of caffeine so I was ecstatic when Maya Road created the Coffee Cup Coaster album - perfect for my coffee-related projects! Here is one for you to make for yourself!


Maya Road Scallop Ring Book
Maya Road Coffee Cup Coaster
Maya Road Scroll Chipboard
Maya Road Trinkets Textured Knit Blossoms
Maya Road Jonathan Chipboard Alphabet Set
Maya Road Jonathan Mini Alphabet Chipboard Set

Patterned paper
White pom-poms
Inks and white paint
Clear dimensional lacquer



Step 1: Ink Jonathan and Jonathan Mini chipboard alphabets, and a piece of trimmed Scroll Chipboard. Set aside to dry.

Step 2: When dry, generously cover the inked Jonathan Mini alphabets with clear dimensional lacquer. Set aside to dry.

Step 3: Apply a fair amount of liquid glue over inked Jonathan alphabets. Sprinkle glitter over glued alphabets, shake off excess glitter and leave aside to dry and set.



Step 4: Cover a page from the Coffee Cup Coaster book with patterned paper. Ink edges.

Step 5: Adhere white pompoms near 'rim' of coffee cup to create faux marshmallows. Adhere beads for faux chocolate sprinkles. :) Embellish coffee cup further with patterned paper cut-outs and Textured Knit Blossoms.



Step 6: Paint sides of one page from the Scallop Ring Book with white paint. Ink edges with your favorite ink color.

Step 7: Cut a piece of patterned paper to fit into centre of painted scallop page. Distress edges of paper. Adhere to scallop page.



Step 8: Assemble the different prepared elements as shown.



Step 9: Tie a ribbon through the pre-made holes at top of the scallop page.

Step 10: Hang the sign up as and when required. :)



I hope you'll have fun making this project, just remember to pour yourself a favorite beverage before you begin creating!

Family Vacation Calendar Page by Sandy Wiley

For an upcoming trip to Disneyland, I made a March calendar page using lots of Maya Road goodies. Skylar doesn't know yet that he will be in Disneyland in 2 days so it will be a huge surprise for him. This layout is pretty much all chipboard pieces and sheers. I used green Maya Road mist for the word "March" and chipboard man, yellow paint for the bird, and the rest are directly from Brilliance ink stamp pads. Once the color is applied to the chipboard the fun begins by playing with stamps to add a little interest to the piece.

Products Used:
Urban Lily Calendar Page
New York Uppercase Alphabet
Bird Chipboard Set
Bracket Chipboard Set
People Keychain Set
Black & White Sheer Tickets
Sheer Scallop Cards
Boy Rubons
Jonathan Alphabet Rubons
Clock Stamp Set

~PS I Love You Air Mail ~ by Katie Watson



Have you seen the Airmail mail box with the postage stamp edge mini album inside?  I think it gets missed sometimes and it is such a cute project to make.  I have had this cute little mailbox sitting on my shelf for a bit now just waiting for me to start it. 

  I had several ideas for it...but then I rented the movie, "PS I love you" and I knew that was the title that I would use.  I just did a simple family album inside but there are many different things you could do with the mailbox.  The possibilities are endless.

5. Cover flag with patterned paper and exacto knife the edges to trim off excess. Ink and add bits of crackle paint to add a chippy paint distressed look to it.  Poke a hole through the brad hole going from the inside of the mailbox out.  Secure flag using provided brad.
