Copic Fun Carrying Case

This is my very first time participating in PTI's Blog Hop. I'm so excited!

Using Lauren Meader's wonderful template "All Boxed Up" I created a Copic Marker and Image Carrying Case. I love coloring images with my Copic Markers. I still need a bit of practice so I color for fun whenever I get the chance. Sometimes that means while I am in the carpool line at school, or a doctor's office, or just in front of the tv with the family. So I created this cute little holder so I can take it with me. It's small enough to be portable anywhere. Even fits in my purse!

In these pictures you can see how compact it is:

When you open it up, one side holds the images which are your basic 1/4 sheet size.

And the other side holds the Copic Markers inside of a Clear Card box. I used sticky strip to hold the Clear Card box onto the cardstock. The box fits 9 Copic Ciao Markers (or Sketch Markers on their side) perfectly.

It was so easy to make that I created another one just for fun!

I hope you enjoyed seeing my creations! If you get a chance to make one yourself, please let me know. I'd love to see yours!!

Mother's Day Mojo

I received my new Verve Stamp set "Because of You" a couple of days ago. I could NOT wait to ink up these babies. And they arrived so FAST! I couldn't have gotten them quicker unless I went over the the Verve house myself. ;)

This stamp set is just so beautiful! And it is so versatile. This has got to be one of my most favorite stamp sets in a very long time! I love the sentiments and the fonts and the images. It's just soooo me. I know I will be using it not just for Mother's day, but over and over again. I just wish that the sentiment "Daughter" was included.

I wanted to create a simple silhouette card. Unfortunately it didn't come out like I had envisioned. I think this card is a bit too busy. I'm going to do another version of it this weekend. Maybe in a different color.

Thanks for looking and have a fantabulous day!!
