As many of you who 'follow' my blog,
already know that I LOVE
that Kristin has in her
Retro Cafe Art Shop!
This is just a sampling of some of the Great
Coffee Break Design Products
she produces that I currently keep in supply:)
And here's some Samples of some of my
latest projects I've made using
Coffee Break Design Products:)
I made this recently with Kristin's
Absolutely a blast to play with!
The whole kit comes in a flat board,
that you break apart and then put together
and embellish in what ever way you want!
I lined this kit with Old Farmers Almanac
pages, after inking them.
I used this wonderful 'Inkadinkado' Brand Stamp
of the Koi, mounted it in the shrine,
Stamped and Inked an old domino to also
mount and added Kristin's wonderful
Acrylic Bobbles to create the Bubbles:)
Really enjoyed making this piece,
and I'm still thinking of it being
mounted into a shadow box at a later date to show it off more.
The bottles are also from Retro Cafe Art, they're Mr. Tim's
(Tim Holtz) 'Idea-ology' Bottles.
I filled them with 'Natural' Real Vintage pearls and
real tiny sea shells in the bottom bottle:)
Once you start playing with Kristin's
Coffee Break Design Kits, it's like an
Her assortment is wonderful. With choices of
little mini kits through to major project kits.
Massive Assortment of Stencils and other
goodies too that she produces!
Here's another project that I've used
Coffee Break Design Products
with, it's a Special Project as
it is for my Art Pal Leslie's
Birthday, as she is a Halloween BABY!
I'm not a very clever Baker but I do make a
wicked Paper Cake!
(Don't tell Leslie!!! Grin)
My Halloween Birthday Cake has been a great
pleasure making, and I used a ton of
Coffee Break Design Products all over it!
The top, is another great kit of Kristin's made of
masonite so it's really easy to put together and
I even used her 'ballerina' that she has in her
shop, and altered the lovely blue colour that
she comes in to black and glitter purple!
And of course, no project of mine could
go without my favourite Alphabet Beads
that you will also find in Retro Cafe Arts Shop!
I just kept layering embellishments onto
this thing, having the best time making
it over the top for my Art Pal Les!
(Spider Web Cut-Outs of Kristin's
embellished with a silver Sharpie!
That was quick and easy!)
( So don't tell Leslie her Birthday Cake is ready:)
