Bean around the block

Today I would like to show you a little project that I made. I have a wonderful friend who loves coffee …. she will remain nameless but she knows who she is Smile.
I also have a friend who has a coffee business and makes the most wonderful flavored coffees ….. yummy. They have just opened up a new business in Columbia, Mo. called Bean Around the Block. Aren’t in Missouri? Don’t worry, they ship so be sure to check them out.
So, I bought a sampler of coffee and wanted a cute way to display it. I searched the web, of course, and found a great pattern made by Katie over at Clearly I Stamp. I didn’t make any alterations to it and if you are interested in it be sure to hop over here to check it out. It is the perfect size for these coffee samples.
Isn’t it just adorable? I used the following stamps:
I also used SSD Anglaise Circle Spellbinders compatible Dies and Spellbinders Labels 17.
This works up great using your Scor-pal! Simple, easy and elegant.
Here is a top view
The little bags inside the tote I also made using my Scor-pal. I've taken pictures of the box making and will do my best to get a tutorial out here over the weekend.

I love the way this turned out and I’m sure my 'sweet pea' will love it!

This is cute, Steph. I also love the Copic plaid paper made by the picnic caddy artist. My daughter loves coffee, so I may have to 'borrow' your design. C2
