But first...coffee!

Good morning Dies R Us friends!

Vicki here with your Monday morning "cuppa inspiration".

Starting the day with a cup of coffee is always on my agenda.  It's only that one cup that I need and if I don't have the opportunity to have it, my world is off it's axis all day long.  I also drink decaf, so it's not the energy boost that I need in that cup of coffee but the quiet thinking time about the day that makes me enjoy my morning coffee...pondering what needs done while holding that cuppa  hot comfort.  I also have a travel mug that goes with me when I am off doing errands.  This mug along with the awesome new Heartbeat die are the inspiration for my project today.

I have created sleeves for my travel mug...


Nothing like that morning cuppa to get you motivated for the day's events!



I traced three sleeves using a pattern from one I had saved in my stash of stencils.


The embellishing pieces were cut using the following dies:

EK Success Cutter Bee Borders


Frantic Stamper Heartbeat


Precious Marieke Fantastic Flowers Frame


These dies are currently in stock and available in the Dies R Us Store.

* The Spellbinders Banner die in the background is no larger available at Dies R Us.

Here's one of the finished sleeves.  The edges are inked in chalk ink with the die cut embellishments layered in the center of the sleeve. 

Just a fun way to brighten your day!
Thanks for stopping by to share my "cuppa inspiration".  I hope I have inspired you to create with die cuts on your projects.
