Coasters Galore! (and Free Giveaway)

After making one coaster project this week into a Post-it note holder, I just had to make more!  They are so quick and easy, and just so cute!  It's like eating a Lay's potato chip, you can't make (eat) just one!  And in my stash, there are 100s of coasters waiting to be made into something!

The designer papers that I used, called Flashback, had smoky gray, real red, pool party and hello honey colors in it (Stampin Up's names for the colors).  So I made the card with the gray and added some red accents to it.  It's hard to tell in the photos, but I cut out a red heart to add as a raindrop.  The butterfly just seemed to tie it all in together.

Then I made MORE of the coasters!  I love the camera-themed paper on the one with the quirky looking bird. 

Here is a pic of a red one that I also made.  Check out the saying- Keep It Real!  Silly, but fun. You can make this easy project for any occasion- birthday parties, showers, gifts for your co-workers, etc.  I put a different colored paper on the back of them and they are reversible, too!

The idea for the coaster project is from Jen Sannes and the card layout is roughly from Narelle Farrugia. 

And, if you leave a comment (by Wed, Aug 6 at 9:00 am EST) letting me which coaster Post-it note holder that you like the best, I will send it to you!  (Debb R, you are the winner!)
