It's time for Tea & Cupcakes

The perfect anecdote to winter’s grey skies, our January 2012 kit, Tea & Cupcakes will warm you with cheery colors like blues, greens and yellows, just like a good cup of tea warms you on a cold day. And the cozy textures of felt and velvet remind us a bit of the fluffy frosting on a tasty cupcake. Tags sporting happy sayings, optimistic clouds, and an exclusive stamp featuring the perfect mug for tea. Paper and embellishments from Simple Stories, Basic Grey, American Crafts and the ever-to-be-missed Sassafras, make this kit a friendly smile on a cold and cloudy day.

“Tea & Cupcakes”

and the add-ons:
"Whipped Cream & Sprinkles"

"Red Velvet"

"Honey & Lemon"

Don't forget we now offer stamp subscriptions! Here are the stamps for this month:

We have taken our stamps out of the add ons not only to reduce the cost of the add ons but also to allow our customers to purchase exactly what they want.

We are expanding our store to better serve you and this month we have a number of paints and inks that coordinate beautifully with the main kit. Keep checking back in the store to see what new goodies we have added.

Remember Subscribers get first shot at the add-ons tonight at 9pm EST. The main kit and add-ons will be available to everyone on January 1st, 2012.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Holiday season!

November kit, vacation photos & Christmas kit sneak!

Bed & Breakfast, Cocoa Daisy's November kit, is now available to purchase in the shop! If you haven't had a chance to check it out along with the remaining add ons, you won't be disappointed. Bed & Breakfast is an eclectic mix of manufacturers including Amy Tangerine's line for American Crafts, Crate Paper, Jillibean Soup, and Fancy Pants to name just a few. Included with the kit is a stencil from Julie Balzer and Crafter's Workshop, full of possibilities! We've added wooden buttons from Prima, die cuts from Amy Tangerine, and our exclusive stamp to make your own paper quilts!

Here is a little sneak peek at our Christmas project kit:

It has enough papers to complete any project! There is also an exclusive stamp, along with tons of embellishments & fun goodies like a stencil and spray ink!
It goes on sale to subscribers on November 14th! It will be available to everyone on the 15th.
PLUS we are planning some free fun activities on the boards to help motivate your Christmas Crafting!!!

I am cheating a little by combining my vacation photos with the mini album I created with the November kit and add-ons :)

Don't forget our crop is coming up November 11-13!! It's Cocoa Daisy's 5 year anniversary and we have a lot of great things planned!

November sneak peeks!

We're opening the grand old stained glass and wooden paneled door just a crack to show you a sneak peek at our November kit, Bed and Breakfast. Can you see the heirloom handpieced quilts on the beds? How about the wine basket, filled with goodies? Every side table and buffet is home to a hand crocheted doily or two. You may even spot pillows festooned with vintage buttons on the velvet davenport. Just as the many rooms in a bed and breakfast mixed together make for a lovely mixture of colors and textures, this kit will make you happy with its eclectic style. Featuring a template from Crafter's Workshop, fabric paper from Amy Tangerine, a collection of papers by the likes of Jillibean Soup, Fancy Pants, and Crate, and a vintage-inspired button here or there, we're certain this little peek into November's Bed and Breakfast kit will make you want to visit us again and again.

and some peeks at a few of November's add ons:

I had a wonderful weekend in Wyoming and will post some photos our day in the mountains.
Have a happy Wednesday!

Lots of great things at Cocoa Daisy this month!

First of all here is the warm and inviting October kit "Farmer's Market":

This month's kit has sold out but you can email me at "" to be put on a wait list.

Ronda has put together this adorable Halloween mini album project kit:

Instructions will be included along with bonus instructions for a Halloween Decor item. We still have a few of them left in the store!

Lastly I am so excited to introduce a new way to better serve our Stamp loving customers; we now offer Stamp Subscriptions! In the past we have worked around the store flat rate for those of you that wanted to just purchase one or two stamps by either issuing a Paypal invoice with lower shipping or I would just refund some of the shipping from your store order. But now you can get ALL 3 Cocoa Daisy stamps each month (yes we will have THREE stamps each month) for only $11.00. And shipping is $2.50 for domestic, $3.00 for Canada and $3.50 for international. Now you can have your Cocoa Daisy stamps automatically shipped to your home each month! How cool is that! You can read all about it here.

And here is what I created with this month's kit:

LOVE this month's main kit stamp, this honeycomb stamp makes a great background stamp!

I dug out my old alpha stamps and played with them on this one :)

Have a great week every one!
