It's a date...a COFFEE date!


Hi, Coffee Loving fans!  I'm really excited about our feature where each of the DT invite one of their friends for a crafting 'Coffee Date'!

I'm thrilled to have my good friend Melody Blake join me today!  Melody and I have been crafty friends for several years and we are also DT teamies with Divinity Designs.  BTW - Meldoy is crazy talented (she inspires me constantly) and has THE best sense of humor (her storytelling will leave you in stitches)!  Here's a little bit about Melody...


I live in Ohio with my craft-enabling husband of 43 years!  Paper crafting became a passion of mine when our two sons were young, and I was introduced to scrapbooking!  Making cards soon followed, and after retiring from a 37 year career in education, I have had lots more time to craft and to collect crafting supplies!

Kathy and I met at Legacy Paper Arts in Powell, Ohio, while attending Ohio Stamp Junkie events.  I hope this pandemic comes under control soon so we can start crafting together once again with all of our talented, crafty friends!

Thank you so much, Kathy, for inviting me to be your “Coffee Date!”


We decided to each create a card based off the same sketch...

Here's Melody's beautiful card:

The supplies I used for my card are all from Dare 2B Artzy and include the Latte Love Stamp Set and the Be Frappe Stamp Set.  The dies used were the Frappe & Donut Die, the Circle Framelits, the Slim-Mini Snowflake Background Die, and the Rectangle Framelits.  The D2BA papers on my project were Penguin Plunge and That’s a Wrap.

Here's mine:

For my card, I used several patterns from Echo Park Farmhouse Kitchen for layering.  The fabulous images and sentiment are from an Ellen Hutson set called A Breve Note.

Hope you and a friend can get together for a crafty coffee date, too!
