Hi ! Ever wonder what to do with those coffee cup sleeves when your coffee is gone?  here's what I do with them - after collecting them for 'way too long ;-) There are tags in each sleeve so there is plenty of room for photos and journaling notes

Club Create!!

    
Hi!!  I know this can be a really crazy time- trying to squeeze in a few more summer fun things and get ready to start the school year at the same time...SO!! this would be a great time to take a break from it all and get creative for a couple hours!  AND have a little while to chat and laugh with friends !
             You are invited to my house for the August gathering for Club Create!  We'll get started at 1:00,  making cards of the style you see in the attached photos, called "layered stamping".  The possibilities are endless!!! I'll provide the papers, stamps and inks. You will need to bring adhesive(tape runner is best ).  I would appreciate $5 from each attendee to help cover costs of the materials, which can be paid when you get here.  Thanks!
            You will also have a chance to see the new "Annual Inspirations" idea book.  There are all new paper packs, some new embellishments, some new colors and more new gorgeous stamps sets!
So you can shop too!! what more could a person want - laughing, chatting, eating, creating and shopping!!all in a couple hours.  Be sure to let me know if you can come over so I can plan accordingly!!
Take good care- Ruth

Coffee Cup Sleeves!





Here's a mini-album I made using the sleeves from "to go" coffee cups - I love to up-cycle things and this was fun and easy to do.  I pressed them flat, glued the bottom edge shut and tucked a tag into each one.  The best way I found to "bind them" was with eyelets and ribbon, since they didn't take away tag space:-)
Next time you toss a sleeve away...don't!!
