Merry Cafe Hot Cocoa Mug

Score! I found these Via Instant…

Who knew Flirty Flamingo & Calypso Coral would look so great together. Using the largest circle on your Layering Circles Framelits, cut out of Thick Whisper White cardstock. You will use the negative to make your mask.…

I also haven’t played with this new paper, Wood Textures. Its perfect for “man” cards. This is a 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack available on June 1st, along with the Crafting Forever stamp set. I told you I…
