Caffinated Cropper Kit Blog Hop!!!

{This is post #2 of 2 for today.
My Unity FWF/FFC post is located below this one.}
Hey girlies!!!
This is our first official blog hop for the Caffinated Cropper kit.
WHOOHOOOO!

There are so many bits and pieces to this wonderful kit. I don't think that I am EVER going to use it all. I still have tons of ideas brewing .... just need to find the time to make them!

For today's card, I took two of the kraft envelopes from the kit and nested them together to create a card base...


The wonderful thing about doing this is that you can then insert items into the card...like the teabags here, or photos, invites, business cards. There are so many fun things you can do with this kind of format. I definitely want to play with it some more.


Absolutely everything here is from the kit! Can you believe that? This kit is jam-packed FULL of wonderful goodies! Amy is almost sold out, so if you want one of these kits, you better grab it today (sidebar of her blog.)

oh, and while you are over there, you may want to grab one of these ca-ute little flower frogs that I used to display my photos. Do you see how awesome they are for project photography?!? Gorgeous!

And speaking of Gorgeous and Wonderful things....look who came by for a quick visit last night...


Amy and her sister Jenny got to come by for a little bit last night while they are here visiting in Illinois. Kat was in 7th heaven. Amy is absolutely one of her favorite people. I kind of like her too. ;o) I miss her so much!

Be sure to go check out the rest of the DT to see what everyone created with this wonderful kit!!!
