Mocha Morning papers

Happy New Week!!! hope you had a great weekend, I took some ME time as this was the only Free weekend this month, I have and will be working all the rest. So it was nice not to do very much other than cook like a woman possessed with the Thermie. I have made sauces to keep in the fridge for quick mid week meals, 3 batches of bread, a raspberry sorbet, vanilla ice cream,  soup, cottage cheese, coleslaw, plus some yummy dinners, and of course CADA every morning to start us off right, I loved it.

I am showing you a few more samples I had ready for my Catalogue Launch last week. It uses the most gorgeous set of papers, Mocha Morning Speciality.

They are to die for keep your eyes peeled for a paper share soon, you need to see these in real life, super gorgeous flocked designs in soothing neutral shades will allow you to create elegant projects and packaging in a flash.


Stamps: Tiny Tags, Just Believe

Papers:Mocha morning dsp, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla card

Inks: Soft suede, basic black, crumb cake

Tools: brayer, tiny tags punch, itty bitty flower punch

Accessories: Yummy Victoria lace trim, pearls, vintage brads.


Start with a A5 card blank in soft suede, cut a piece of dsp 8.5cm x 13cm and adhere to the blank.

Cut a piece of Very vanilla card at 6.5cm x 10cm stamp your design then using the brayer and crumb cake ink gently brayer some colour from the outside edges to the middle to create the aged background.

Overstamp the corners by inking first then stamping off on a scrap of paper before stamping onto your panel.

Punch out some dsp with the itty bitty and add on the main stamped motif top with self adhesive pearls.

Adhere your panel to the main card and add some lace trim and a vintage brad. Stamp your sentiment and punch out add to the brad and VOILa! done.

Look at that fabulous brad !! I adore these and they are amazing value £5.50 for a pack of 20. And the trim Oh my!! do not ask me about that because I will bore you to death pronouncing my eternal love for it.

I hope you like my offering today and before I go I will explain a bit about my favourite breakfast at the minute CADA. Until I bought my Thermomix I have never heard of it but I had this nearly every morning since finding out, if you have a processor you will be able to make this and trust me you will find it hard to go back to muesli after tasting this.

CADA stands for Coconut(desicated), Almonds, Dates and Apple fresh.

You need a small handful of each and one fresh apple, add everything to the Thermomix bowl and press turbo button for 2 seconds no more or you will end up with puree. If using a traditional food processor it will take you longer but just keep an eye on the texture.

I enjoy mine with a generous helping of creamy Greek yoghurt made in the Thermomix as well. Let me know if you try it.

See you again soon thank you for stopping by hugs Monica xxx
