Interested?  These are just a few of the many NEW images that all the Copic instructors will be sharing at the workshop classes this year!  My first weekend is open for registration in Seattle, WA February 13th and 14th!  What a perfect way to start your Valentine weekend!  Come spend your day with me and still have time for dinner with your sweetie!  I am sure I will be a ball of hyper energy with my first class it will be worth just coming for that!  Check out all the info. HERE

Also over at the Get It Scrapped blog I have a new tutorial regarding cleaning your Copic markers.  When the Copic instructors all met in Oregon this past October we discussed cleaning practices and decided it was a good idea to get the information out there in a bigger way so people know what the home base is recommending for cleaning.  HERE


Merry Christmas!

Wishing all of you a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!  From a very sunny Arizona!


Just this week I had a very special layout post over at Gt It Scrapped.  We were sharing layouts about our holiday mentors.  I chose my mom as my mentor, she is the one who showed me how to celebrate the holidays fro certain!

Holiday Mentor

I have this wonderful small group of old photos from my Grandmother that every once and a while I delve into them.  This assignment seemed to scream for such a photo search.  I found this one of my Mom and I from MANY moons ago.  I love it and it is so wonderful to be able to do a special page to feature her!  I had this collection of papers from SEI that seemed to be made for the photo and figured out how to cut up one sheet to create several of the layers.  The brown dotted paper that is the large border around the blue bird paper and around the photo is actually the reverse side to the bird paper so you can imagine I was pushing some of the cuts quite close.

I have built up a just right pile of trims and embellishments these days so I ruffled through my stash and found all the do-dads to add the fun details.  You can see some more mentor layouts HERE

I just sent out a newsletter regarding all the first quarter Copic classes.  There are many workshops, standard and intermediate certifications now open for enrollment!  Check HERE for the current classes open!  I will send out another note to may subscribers as the second quarter starts registering!  If you would like to be on that mailing list sign up over in the right hand sidebar. Later this week you can get a sneaky peek of some of the images we will be coloring!  I also have a tutorial going over Copic marker cleaning over at Get It Scrapped that you might like to check out.  I will share a little more later this week as well.

Merry Christmas!
