Take a look at my planner page:

Today is National Simplicity Day, so I decided to keep my planner page as simple and fun as possible.

The warm weather has me eating ice cream everyday! My favorite ice is strawberry and thought it would be cool to showcase that in my panner.

Here’s how I created this planner page:

Stamp two ice cream cones and a heart from Altenew’s Way Too Sweet Stamp Set on the bottom left hand corner of the planner page.

Use the Artist Markers R301, R302, R304 and Y612 to color in the ice cream cones.

Print out a photo, round the corners with We R Memory Keepers 3 Way Corner Punch.

Use a penblade and cut out a portion of the heart so that the photo can sit behind it.

Adhere the photo with Altenew Glue Tape.

Stamp the sentiment under the photo and done!!!

Keeping the page since and simple!

Copic Coloring for Card Making!!

Hello everyone!!!  I’m so excited today!!  My new Online Card Class started today.  Yayyyyyyyy!


I haven’t really used my Copic Markers since I became certified.  I was still intimated by them.  When I saw that this was the next class, I knew I had to take it.  My goal for this year is to master Copic Coloring.  That is what I’m working on!

To get ready for this class, I went out an bought a new set of markers.  Now I have 106 markers up from 30.  Now I have to have them all.  I also need to create a storage for them.

Copic Markers

So today is the first class and we learned soooo much.  We learned how to blend with two colors, three colors within a color family and we also learned to blend with colors outside the different color families.  Amazing!!

After class today, I was on the search for more markers.  So I found these and bought them too.

Copic Anniversary

Aren’t these pretty.  I get them tomorrow, one day shipping, Amazon!  Somebody please stop me!!

As soon I finished my practice sheets I will share some of my work. If you want to participate in the class it’s not to late.  Head on over to Online Card Classes and register.

Stay tuned for my Copic Coloring work!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
