Craft It Forward - Bookmarks

I have really enjoyed participating in the Craft It Forward program hosted by Scrapbook, Etc.  This month's project is bookmarks.  I found these cute monster corner bookmarks here so I decided to make several.  It is a great way to use up those scraps (and we all know how I like to do that!).  I plan to make some girly ones with big eyelashes and red pouty lips.  These bookmarks will be collected by Columbus Scrappers and donated to Columbus Metro Book Mobile for at-risk kids.  Thanks to Lynne Fogel from Columbus Scrappers for coordinating this great community service project.

Super 8 Movie

We took the boys to see this movie last night and we all enjoyed it!  It has great action, lots of suspense and an intriguing story line.  The show is set in the late 1970's.  I love the kind of innocence and coming of age situations the kids had back then.  Didn't life seem so much simpler??  But why oh why, J.J. Abrams, must you have children curse and drop the f-bomb?  It is so unnecessary....

We have confirmed COPIC classes!

I'm so pleased to announce we have confirmed class times for our Copic Marker Technique Class (formerly known as Monthly Copic Club).  We will be meeting the last Saturday of each month from 12:30 - 2:30 with the exception of November and December.  Classes during these months will move up a week to accommodate seasonal holidays.   Here are the details:

Each month we will learn a new technique for utilizing Copic markers and use a new 4-5 marker color combo set. This will allow you to build your marker collection over time without breaking the bank. Each class will complete 3 cards using the designated monthly technique and marker combo. Prior Copic blending skills required.

ScrapScription - Summertime Reflection Kit

The temperature reads HOT and it’s time to take a break from the summer heat and reflect on all the good things this time of year brings to you and your family. The bright colors from Little Yellow Bicycle’s Sweet Summertime collection are a great starting off point for this one of a kind mixed album.

ScrapScription is offering an awesome add on kit this month featuring We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy paper stitching system.


Some of you may chose to make other projects with your "SUMMERTIME" kit instead of the mini album. Here are some examples of layouts you can make with this month's kit and the WE R MEMORY KEEPERS SEW EASY add on kit.

 Happy scrapping!

Basic Grey's "Out of Print" line is featured for the July monthly kit at Little Red Scrapbook.  This kit is fresh and fun and the BG fans are going to love it. 

I just love the AC Thickers included in this kit.  I need to get more of those!

Copic classes delayed just a wee bit

I'm thrilled so many of you are interested in continuing your Copic marker skills.  I just wanted to touch base with you to let everyone know I haven't dropped the ball or forgotten about you.  I was hoping to have a class in July, however, my little dude was at Children's Hospital.  He has kidney stones in both kidneys and had to have surgery. 

Doesn't this just break your heart?

He is doing well but needs to go back next week for an out patient procedure and then have another follow up surgery after that.  

I have an awesome technique in mind for our first class, but haven't planned for markers yet.  Here is a 50% off coupon for Michael's for today only and a 40% off coupon for the next week.  You might want to take advantage of it and pick up a marker or two you've had your eye on.  Michael's offers 60 Copic colors for $6.99.  Here is a link to the 60 colors Michael's carries.

Hobby Lobby also has a 40% off coupon good through July 9th.  HL offers 144 Copic colors for $6.49.  They are located by the custom framing counter and are kept in a back room.  You need to ask an employee to see them and must know the secret hand shake before being admitted into the sanctum.  (JK about the hand shake!).  Here is a link to the 144 colors HL carries.

Enjoy the coupons, happy shopping and I'll be in touch very shortly!
