The challenge at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog this month is No Cards Allowed (create anything but a card).
I received an image from Bugaboo Stamps called (Coffee Time.Perfect Blend) for this challenge. I love these digi stamps - they are so much fun! And she offers a freebie every Friday. Bugaboo Stamps is also our sponsor this month!

I shrunk down the digi-stamp to make my own patterned paper. Once I did that, I used alcohol markers to color the images and added some splatter using brown spray ink. I didn't like the outcome of this - the splotches were bigger than I hoped, but it still worked out.
I cut the patterned paper down to 3 3/4 x 5 1/4 as with the other two pieces of coordinating patterned papers from my stash. I cut and matted the sentiment to be 3x4.
The rest of the layout is pretty simple. The piece that it all sits on is 9x12" and I added a funky border strip on the left side, I matted all three pattern papers with brown cardstock, did some multi-generation stamping on the bottom right and top left corners and some punched hearts to finish the layout.
Since I had some of the "patterned paper" left, I made a card as well. I didn't add the splatters on this piece and I added a pink punched tab to the top of the sentiment. I know, I know...I'm not supposed to make a card this month, but I was in the groove with these left over pieces, I didn't want them to go to waste. :)
