Hi everyone! My name is Daisie and I am a coffee addict. I just can’t function without it. So it make sense that my scrapbooks should include this part of my life! Ink Road Stamps has a plethora of caffeine related stamps and stamp sets for us addicts to chose from! Today’s layout is a mix of some of my favorites.
I don’t often do grids but it is a great go to style for some quick scrapping. For a layout about coffee, there are plenty of stamps to choose from! I ended up pulling from 7 stamp sets for this layout! First, I stamped out the Mug Life background stamp using Stazon black ink and cut it into 3 inch squares.
Then I cut 2- 3 inch squares out of my favorite white cardstock. I used Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks and used them to watercolor the squares. Next, I used the stamp “I Run On coffee and chaos” from the Boymom stamp set to create my center title square. I then used sentiments from Stars Hollow and Mug Life sets. These I used on the background squares for some added color.
I used the coffee cups from the Mug Life and PSL stamps sets to create my embellishments. I used the Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks with the Between the Lines stamp set to create 2 additional squares for my grid. The background paper I chose is Amy Tangerine Shine On collection. The gray pattern was subtle yet adds some interest. I colored the coffee mugs with gray to pull that color up into the layout. I stitched a grid onto the background with black thread using my sewing machine.
To finish, I assembled my grid. I added some shimmery blue paper to the remaining grid spaces. The photos are of me from 2012 when I was in nursing school. The journaling states how much coffee helped me through the difficult times. I used the Block Party Alpha Outline stamps for the year. I added some Flat Back Gems from the shop to complete the layout.
