Fancy a Cuppa To Go with My Time Made Easy!

>> Saturday, October 2, 2010

I love love love anything to do with coffee! This is why I am beyond excitement with the new release from My Time Made Easy. But the best thing about it is Lauren has thought of things that other craft companies haven't! Like how to make a to go cup of your own! And using K-Cups and a stamp image of a Kuerig machine, not just a coffee pot! I am in total love of this release! Check out what i did with the Fancy a Cuppa and To Go templates using paper from the Coffee Beans pretty printables paper collection digi pack and Fancy a Cuppa add on stamp set and Grap a Cup stamp set!

Stinkin' cute, huh?!
Here is an overiew looking down. There is an insert dividing the Fancy a Cuppa into 2 compartments. You could omit the divider and use this template for a lot of other things!

There is a little handle at the top but it's a little hard to see since i went ribbon crazy. Gotta love using up those ribbon scraps though!

I fit 8 kcups perfectly into the right side compartment.

Here is a view of the To Go template. It creates an adorable to go cup! How stinkin' cute! No more "altering" a cup just for a gift purpose. Now you can create an adorable "coffee cup to go" package to coordinate with your card or other gift packaging. To pair it with the Coffee K Cups, i filled the cup with single servings of coffee creamer.

Now for the lid... obviously that doesnt come with the template because you can't make your computer cut a plastic lid! But the To Go cup fits all the standard cup lids. I sweetly asked my barista at starbucks if i could snag an extra lid. My starbucks gals are sooooo nice. They give my kiddos treats too. My husband says it's because they are hopped up on caffeine and sugar. Maybe so, but they are still very nice!

Last but not least is my coordinating card. I used more papers from the Coffee Beans pretty printables paper pack. I am very happy with how this turned out because as i looked at a few of my recent cards today i gasp in shock and horror that every card had essentially the same layout! My i am in a RUT i told myself! So i knew I have to do something different! So this is a different kind of layout for me, but it was fun. The red circle is not a mat at all but rather a cut out. The circle that i cut out is on the top of the coffee cup, so i used the negative space and let the red mat show thru. Then i popped up the stamped image of the Kuerig-esque machine on top. I did want to have a few similar elements so i add the same red ribbon that is on the packaging. But other than that, this card could also stand alone.

Here is a quick side view of the card just so you can see the detail of what I am talking about.

I wouldnt call it revolutionary, but it's different than the 1.5x4 inch piece of coordinating patterned paper that I seemed to think was necessary on my cards. hahahaha.

Ok, so now that you've seen my project, be sure to check out what Lauren, Tangii, Tammy, and Debbie have in store for you!

Very pretty project, Katie! I love the fun colors you chose! And I love the red festive! Great idea to put those small coffee cups in the one side of the carrier! I didn't realize they made chai fav! I don't have one of those machines, but my niece does! I'll have to raid her house and make some! LOL!

Flippin fun Katie - I LOVE this. You have my addy right?!?!? LOL THis will be a super great gift for someone special. I love the card, too - and it's ok to be in a rut sometimes when the layout we want to use just works. Sometimes being uber creative takes a lot of energy. ROCK ON with this wonderful project.
