Scrapbooker's Class - Copics

I took an awesome class at Scrapbooker's Paradise South last night.  It was an Advanced Copic class taught by Sandy.  I just love taking her classes.  I took this class because it was more techniques using my Copic markers.  I just hope that I can remember everything I learned.

Card 1

We made the brad using the Itop...pretty neat tool.

Card 2

This on we colored the stamp with Copics and had to work fast.

This one we made the circles using the Colorless Blender.

This one we used our darkest color for the circles, then traced them with a thin black pen.

This one we used the darkest colour then outlined with the blender pen.

Christmas All Year Long - October

WOW...I can't believe that it's already October 25th...where in the world did this month go.  When I was asked if I was going to participate this month I was stunned that it was time to sign up already.  Of course I didn't have a card ready.  But I decided to go for it. 

I'd really like to say thanks to Julie, she is awesome at keeping us organized!!!  Big thank to to Deb, without her Magnolia-cious Yahoo Group I wouldn't have met these wonderful ladies!  Also, thank you to Diana for having a great store in which to purchse these beautiful stamps!!
