Fantabulous Cricut Design Team Post - "Expresso Yourself" Notebook/Journal

This week at Fantabulous Cricut our theme is to use a heart shape on our projects. We also have a wonderful sponsor this week, K Andrew's Designs! I received the "Coffee and Tea Tag Along Sentiments" to use on my project.  

As soon as I saw the "Expresso Youself" sentiment, I knew that I wanted to create a coffee shop themed notepad/journal. The notepad measure 8.5"x6.5".

The coffee shop was cut from the Pop Up Neighborhood cartridge at 5" and the scalloped heart was cut from the Sweethearts cartridge at 1.75".

The couple was cut from the Sweethearts cartridge at 3.75" and the sentiment tag was cut from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge at 2".

The sentiment frame on the inside cover is cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge at 1.75".

Products used:
Cricut cartridges: Pop Up Neighborhood, Sweethearts, Once Upon a Princess and Elegant Edges
K Andrew's Coffee and Tea Tag Along Sentiments Stamp Set
The Twinery Blush Twine
Paper: American Crafts designer paper, Recollections designer paper and Recollections cardstock
