Inviting Claire to Breakfast + Giveaway

SEI paper is so yummy. I am in love with the Claire collection in particular. Some papers are cozy and quilted, others have a glitzy sheen, some are tiny polite patterns, others big easy florals. It's sensory heaven. So much paper pleasure all in the same pack.


And so in honor of this yummy paper experience, I put together a little breakfast banquet for you, starring SEI's Claire collection. And if you have a few pages of SEI, and a few eggs in the fridge (or in the coop!), maybe you'll consider having your own banquet this Sunday morning.


there's nothing like a softboiled egg and the morning paper (okay, I don't get the paper, how about the morning Google Reader feed?)


the claw footed egg (i did this with just the regular stock, for Sunday I'll be mounting the paper on chipboard)


napkin rings can slide off and double as jewelry


who says cupcakes have to have all the fun? muffins deserve some love too.


granola for the road

Thanks for having me, SEI. It's been an honor. And a happy Valentines day weekend to everyone.

As a teacher, the bookmark post was my favorite. Cute ideas to make in class!

Scoobie said...

Thank you for giving us all these great ideas this week, Amber Lee. It's har to pick a fav - it has to be either the lunch note post, or this last one. OK. I can't make up my mind, I'll vote for both of them :-)

Bonnie said...

Loved the breakfast ideas and bookmarks.

kaw1963 said...

I really liked the post on garlands.

rose said...

this is definitely my favorite. i'm getting hungry, both for the food and the pretty papers!

A Ph.D. student just trying to make my way.... said...

What a great week.

Attainable Treasures said...

The writing on a banana was the best idea for me - who would've thought of writing on your child's food!!???
Favorite post overall was the breakfast ideas for using SEI paper. I love their paper collections for creating cards and quickly completing scrapbook pages, never thought of using it for wrapping a cone of granola. What a great ready-to-go meal for teens and anyone else who isn't eating a healthy diet.

Thanks for thinking out of the box and expressing yourself so clearly.

Michael - Innkeeper said...

People are endlessly creative! It's amazing what some people thing off!

Just found your blog and I've really been enjoying reading through your archive!

Deena said...

I think the napkin rings that can double as a bracelet are just to cute!! Thanks for a chance to win!!

Melissa Sauls said...

The post about the 5 things that rock your world was great!! Great job as a guest blogger this week! Thanks for the chance to win. :)

Christine Hatchell said...

Wow! Do I have to pick just one... let's see: I liked the bookmarks and all the different ideas for something so simple as a bookmark, and what a great gift idea. The Mini M&M banner was cute, but I think that the recycled milk carton boxes have to take the #1 spot.. That is just so cool! Thanks for all of the inspiration!

Mardi said...

Can I come for Sunday Breakfast? Love this!

Stefanie J. said...

Such cute ideas!

Holly S said...

I love this breakfast idea! How cute, fun and cool is that? A great way to make someone feel special!

Monika said...

Monday's post was awesome. I am already a fan...and just this week have used the labels on a homemade envelope made out of a map for my brother's birthday card and the sewn envelope for the heart day present for my dear, sweet husband. Oh, yeah, and the heart garland is hanging in my kitchen window. Thanks for inspiration.
