Celebrate My New Copic Markers

Today, I am celebrating by using the Copic markers that I recently purchased. I found this cute little digi stamp in my collection. It was so much fun coloring her. The paper is from the DCWV Citrus paper stack. This stack is filled with lots of fun papers and they matched the Copic markers that I decided to use. The ribbon and buttons are from SU. I used the Cloud edge Corner Chomper to decorate the edges of my image as well as SU Bermuda Bay and Certainly Celery ink. Thank you for checking out my work. See you next time.

You are My Boo

This past weekend I was looking at some images that I had not colored and came across this particular Bella image. I am not sure of the name because I had this image for a few years. Halloween is next month so I decided to try my hand at making a card with this cute little witch. It was a challenge finding paper for this card in my paper stash because I do not usually make anything for Halloween. I used my Copic markers, Smooch pearlized top coat to get a little shimmer action, and my Gypsy and Expression for my bat die cuts. The Ribbon is from my old Stampin Up stash. It was so nice not running out to the store to purchase more stuff. I was able to find everything that I needed right in my woman cave. ;-)

Thank you for checking out my work.

Cruisin 2011 Digital Layout

Here is a digital layout using some of my pictures from the cruise my family and friends took March 2011. This digital paper is from Studio Miki's Cruisin in the Carib collection. Check out her blog at http://tinyurl.com/MicroferkDesignsBlog.
I really enjoyed putting this layout together.

Thanks for checking me out.

You Are Never Too Old To Learn

I decided to expand my knowledge on creating layouts and making cards by participating in the Ella Publishing Boot Camp. I must admit that I am multi-tasking this project because I am doing the boot camp and a birthday challenge using teal and red. Plus, since I just finished a Copic’s certification class, I decided to use my Copic markers. I also combined what I learned from boot camp about pattern design and photo editing tricks on this card.
The products used for this card include:
Papers: SU’s pattern paper, Taken Teal, and Real Red;
Stamps: SU Embrace Life
Inks: SU Taken Teal (sentiment), Copic Markers- R46, BG13, BG15, BG18 (flower).
Accessories: Prima Flowers and SU Rhinestone Brads.
Learning new techniques and tricks this month has been great. I am really looking forward to my next learning adventure.

Exciting News

I am Copic Certified. Whoohoo.

My good friend Trish Butler and I attended the Copic Certification class that was taught by Colleen Schaan in Savannah on December 8, 2011. The class was worth every penny I spent because I learned so much about these wonderful markers. Now I am ready to go out and share my knowledge.
