Okay, I have a confession. I love to hoard Maya Road's coaster books. These books come in so many adorable palm-sized shapes, I'm sure that everyone has their favorite. For me, I love them all! Plus their very affordable price points make them even more attractive to hoard! ;)
This time round, I'm going to share some small projects where I used a few of my favorite coaster books not as albums but on cards. These are easy to do and so-very cute!
On this card below, I used a page from the Bird Chipboard Coaster Book, covered it in patterned paper and embellished with a paper leaf, Suede Stitched Blossom, Marigold Trinkets Ribbon, Vintage Pearl and Clear Jewels trinket pins. Sentiment is Noah Mini alphabets misted with Turquoise Metallic Mist.
I shrieked a happy laugh when I first saw the Coffee Cup Coaster! One of my favorite ways to embellish this book is adhering chipboard swirls at the top of the book to create 'steam'. For the next card, I did just that. After covering a page with patterned paper, I layered a piece of Clock Sheer under the sentiment. Sentiment is Jonathan Mini and Noah Minichipboard alphabets. A ribbon bow embellished with Clear Jewel trinket pins was the final touch for this card.
Another one of my favorites is the Butterfly Coaster. For this card, I matted the butterfly page with a contrasting patterned paper and embellished with a paper leaf, Velvet Pleat blossom, Velvet Stitched blossom and Double-stitched ribbon with Leaf trinket pin. Pearl strands were used for the butterfly's antenna. Sentiment is Jonathan Mini alphabets, misted with Gold Metallic Mist.
So try using your favorite Maya Road coaster books on your next card-making project! They'll up that 'oomph' factor in your cards, for sure!
