Off to Cullen County...

Finally!! I get to visit Forks and do the Twilight Tour!! I am SO excited!
My fellow twi-hards, Elizabeth, Carmen and Dolly will be joining me :) It's a little less than 4 hours away, including Ferry, and it'll all be worth it :) We even have reservations at Bella Italia!! Mushroom Ravioli here we come!!
To mark the occasion, i've made these simple souvenirs for my travel buddies. WalMart is selling these Twilight inspired Sweethearts - (literally) How Yummy!

mini sets, RAK and a shaker!

So it's been 23 days since my last post - PATHETIC, i know. I was SUPER busy over the summer that i barely had time to even catch my breath! And now that the visitors have all left, i get to bust out all my stuff and do some serious crafting!

So here it is:

The box is from KiyomiKrafts with Islander Girls measurements :) Domo! In this box you're able to fit 3x3 cards and envelopes - perfect for those quick gifts!

The copics you see in the one picture is from Claud - all the new colors :) LOVE IT! A rememberance from her trip back to the motherland of copics! Lucky Ducky!
The shaker card was a trial for Nina's buddy Elyse. She turned 5 last weekend and it was a BEAUTIFUL garden Party!! Kudos to Mommy Caroline and Daddy Chad! Great Job!

Thanks for stopping by :) Have a wonderful day :)

March Copic Class

Hi all! Sorry for the lack of posts! Good thing it was a cold gloomy day today, was finally able to craft a bit and catch up! Thanks for the award again Claud!

Here is the card we made in Copic class last month. We used watercolor paper, blender fluid and copics for a water color effect. Liann did a better job with her card :) We also used color pencils over the copics for highlights. TFL!

This was the card we made in Copic class today. Fun time!
I also learned today that you can use color pencils over Copics. In this case, i used Lemon Yellow for the highlights in the flower and stem.
TFL :)
