I was feeling especially fancy and decided to share a video of our adventure to Walmart too:
After I got everything I needed, we headed home and set up our craft station, I turned Pandora to an acoustic station, and poured us the most delicious Pumpkin Spice Frappé Coffee thanks to NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE® Liquid Coffee Creamer in Pumpkin Spice and NESCAFÉ® Tasters Choice® House Blend, you can find my recipe below. We topped these off with a good dose of whip, just the same as they would at a coffee shop and got to work.
Interested in making a Pumpkin Spice Latte or Frappé at home?
Enjoy a flavorful moment of your own.
Pumpkin Spice Frappé Coffee Recipe
NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE® Liquid Coffee Creamer in Pumpkin Spice
NESCAFÉ® Tasters Choice® House Blend
Sugar or Sugar substitute (to taste)
You can make a super yummy frappé at home with just a few simple items and your blender!
Begin by adding the correct amount of Tasters Choice coffee and water (as instructed on package) and about 3-4 ice cubes into your blender. Blend until it begins to foam a bit. Pour into a glass and sugar and NESTLÉ® COFFEE-MATE® Liquid Coffee Creamer in Pumpkin Spice to taste, garnish with whipped cream! I meant to add a dash of pumpkin spice seasoning over the whip as well but the coffee were so good, I just forgot and started sipping!
Want to make a PSL instead? Just switch the coffee out for espresso!
Now that we have your caffeine fix satisfied, let's get to the crafty fun from our coffee date. I absolutely love how my calendar turned out and since it's such an easy project, I hope that some of you will decide to add one of these beauties to your home.
DIY Calendar/Organization Board
For this project, you will need:
A giant hole punch (scrapbooking supplies aisle)
Magazines (paint swatches work as well)
A large frame with the glass
Scrapbooking Photo Stickers
You may also need*:
White poster board
(*I was lucky and frame happened to have the stock photo still, I just flipped it over and used the white side as my background for my calendar... if you don't have that option, I suggest using poster board trimmed to the size of your frame instead!)
This project is all about getting creative. If you are using magazines, you'll need to find photos that have patterns you love or spaces of just color without words. If you are using paint swatches, just begin hole punching the colors you want to use. Note that you'll need 35 circles total if you are making a calendar, if you want to make a "waterfall" organization board as shown in my office picture - just get to hole punching and count later!
I should also mention the downside of using magazines is that they don't cut as easily with the hole punch as the paint swatches do. With that said, I've found that if I hole punch the magazine clipping with one of the stock paper "mail this in to subscribe" post cards as well, it makes the process much easier. You can see the technique I use showcased below.
After getting it all organized, place it all together in frame behind the glass, hang your frame, & get to writing!
