Cathy is Sharing a Layout all About Her Love of Tea!

Cathy Potosky is back with another wonderful creation! In her tutorial she shares how she created a unique "coffee stained" background and how to bring the layout together using the No Place Like Home collection. From here we will let Cathy take it away!
-
I knew as soon as I saw the sheet of paper with all the cups, I was going to do a page dedicated to a few of the insane amount of special coffee mugs we collect at my house. A hot cup of whatever beverage chosen has always been such a big part of some of the best talks, laughs, cries with my kids and my best friends and family.
I gathered the sheets of paper I wanted to use and the cards from the pack and the colours of ink and my "coffee stain" stencil. I cut all the pieces I needed, rounded the corners on the cards and inked all the edges in Vintage Photo and Stormy Sky
I used Vintage Photo in regular Distress and the new Oxide to put the coffee stains all over the white cardstock background. I adhered all my cup photos with a tape runner to the background paper, and attached with pop dots to the background so there was some dimension.
I fussy cut some of the cups from the 12x12 paper and added them in the corners with pop dots.
I loved the card pack from this set and used three of them for this side panel. I inked the wood veneer heart with Stormy Sky and glued it on with Glossy Accents. I wanted to fill the other corner space of the layout, but didn't want it to be too busy, so I used the backside of the cup paper - the beautiful brick!
 
I have a few other ideas for the No Place Like Home Collection already. So versatile and can be used for so many things!
Supplies Used:
Thank you so much to Cathy for sharing her wonderful layout that tells a great story about her family. If you would like to see more of her work, be sure to visit her blog and Instagram!
