Copics classes.....

I am going to be teaching some Copics classes at a couple of scrapbook shows/conventions. I am going to teach a beginner and an advanced class....if you are a follower to me, you get to see the images posted below what I am going to teach!

The beginner class is just coloring an image and learning how to use Copics:

The advanced class consists of coloring hair and skin and making a card:

Hope you like them....and wish me luck I have never taught a class anywhere like this!

My first....

Ok, this is my first African American attempt...EVER! I have colored in faces for samples and to practice but have never attempted the skintone/facial tones together. I think she turned out pretty good for my first. I see flaws but I always (don't we all see those in our own work?) Anyway, I am going to give this card to my little great niece.....she is 4 and has a huge thing for purses so I expect that she will carry it around in her purse until it falls

July card class....

Here are my samples for my July card class....little bit of this and a little bit of that! Gonna tweak that 4th card a little..always something I want to

Calendar Class....

Here is a sneak peek of my calendar class that I will be having in July. After the class I will post the other months, but for right now they can only be seen in the store....Scrap Happy in Tiffin.

Latest on my Copic portable storage.....

Ok, so I have changed my Copic storage once again.....this has been an ongoing process. I kept out growing my storage so I kept changing. Well, I now have all but 10 markers! I will be getting them very soon, though!! There are 346 in all....YIP, YIP, YIPPPPEEEEEEE!!

OK, just so you can see what I had as to where I am now.....go here... so you can see how I carried my markers around prior to what I have now.....
which is this:

Isn't is just WONDERFUL??????!!!!!!!!!!! I love this and will not out grow it unless they keep coming out with new colors. I have room for 22 more markers, but have 3 blender pens and I need 2 grays (W00 and W0) and the flourescent colors (8 of them) I have 336 out of 346! WOW!!
Oh, and this carrier is an ArtBin Super Satchel Double Deep...and the grid is for a flourescent light. I got that at Lowe's for just under $12. I got the carrier on sale at Joanns so I have around $33 in the entire thing....oh, the dowel rod that I have in the corners (and one in the middle) was under $3.

Impression Obsession obsession!!

I LOVE THESE STAMPS!!!!! You can use them alone of together for different designs.....the options are unlimited!! Here are the ones I have to start my collection:

Ok, so what do you think??? Love them?? I have 3 more but I don't have them stamped yet, so you will see them as soon as I stamp them out!!


I finally did it!! I made a bookmark! I have been wanting to make one of these for so long but just never did it. Well, I did it now.....and these are super simple!! To use it, it fits on the corner of the page....too cute!!
