Columbus Scrappers Blog Hop and some CANDY!!

This is my very first blog hop!!  I'm not quite sure how it works, but it sure sounds like fun!    We had a challenge for our blog hop.  The challenge is to create a layout or card using the following:

- 3 fall colors
- 2 ribbons
- 1 word title

Here is my layout.  I LOVE the way it turned out.  I normally don't journal on the front of my layouts because my completed projects are usually for design team work.  I journal on the back a lot.  But here I journaled and even in my own handwriting.  Gasp!  Most of the products used were from Little Red Scrapbook's November kit. 

In honor of my very first blog hop, I'm going to give away my very first blog candy!  Yippy!!  Leave a comment and I will randomly select a winner for some yummy goodness!  Thanks for stopping by, now hop on over to Lisa's blog!

Karrie: Welcome To My World    <---- you are here

Little Red Scrapbook October Kit

The October kit features the Crate Paper Restoration line.  I love the vintage, yet colorful feel of this line.  The kit photo gives the impression the kit is really pink, but it is not.  And of course all paper is double sided so you always have an option.

Here are the projects I made with this kit.  It was so much fun to work with and I cannot wait to use up the rest of my supplies.

September Copic Marker Club

Hey all you Copic marker fans!  Here are this month's cards.  We will be using the fabulous Stampendous Fresh Fruit set we used waaaaay back in April.  This month we will be focusing on the citrus fruits.  Please note the class is Sunday, September 26 from 1-3pm only.  There will not be a 3-5pm class this month.

Markers needed for this class:  YR02, YR04, YR07, YG03, YG91, Y21

Optional pens/markers you might want to bring are: Uniball Signo white gel pen, Spica clear glitter pen, Copic medium brown marker (I used E37)

Please be sure to bring adhesive, pop dots and scissors.  Shoot me an email if you have any questions!!  I look forward to seeing everyone in class.

The "Orange you sweet!" card was designed by the talented Kimberly Crawford.  I loved it so much I wanted to incorporate for this class.

I normally don't prep the inside of cards for classes, however, I really wanted to do something special for this card.  I love how the negative punched swirls and flowers from the front of the card really set off the sentiment.  Class participants will get both "....make lemonade!" and (my personal favorite) "...make a lemon drop martini!" sentiments.

September Pizazz It! Scrapbook Kits

Our kit of the month features the lovely papers from Scribble Scrabble.  These papers have a great weight to them and a bit of a vintage feel.  Also in this kit you get a very special item...a Copic marker!!!  I used this marker on my layouts in several ways:  color twine, clear gems, flowers, alphabets and made spatters.  They are so versatile!  Copic makers are different than typical water based makers, which you probably already have at home, in the following ways:

- Alcohol based ink so you can color non-porous materials

- Guaranteed for 3 years
- Can be stored vertically or horizontally
- Nibs are made to last, but are replaceable if needed
- The company has been around for 25 years and they never change the formula of their colors
- Over 334 colors to choose from
- Alcohol based ink allows blending and layering colors but won't pill or tear paper

Because they are refillable at only $1.50, this will be the last marker you will ever have to buy.  I am totally hooked on them!

OK, enough about the markers, lets get on to the kit.  Here is the kit:

And here are some sneak peeks.

Completed layouts can be viewed in the store.  There were only a few extra kits made so if you missed out be sure to sign up to be a member of the Kit of the Month to be guaranteed a kit.
