Copic Storage

This is the way I now store my Copic markers. I like to take them with me when I go places but hated to have them all mixed up. This is a cooler that I found at Wal-Marts for $9.00 then used some foam core board to make the dividers. I made the sections different sizes.
This is the inside view of the bag how I have the markers divided. The lid is on the bottom.

This is the side view of how I have the extra images that I want to work on. I keep them in a plastic photo organizer.

This is back view of how I have the straps locked down when I have the case on my desk. I put the lid on the bottom.

This is the front pocket where I store my refills, a small light, my ink pad just for using with my Copic markers and some hand sanitizer to clean my hands from the markers.
Hope that you find this info helpful.

NYR #33 Card and Layout

This is a card that I made for my DH for our anniversary. I used a digital stamp and my Copic markers. I also used my Cricut and the Lacy Labels cartridge to cut out my image and its shadows. If you have not noticed I love this cartridge for cardmaking.

This is a layout I made using the Cricut cartridge Winter Frolic and a small snow flake punch. I used glitter paper for the bottom of the card, Stickles on the snowflakes and glitter behind the two children. I also used glue dots to hold the children to the glitter and pop dots to make the sayings stand out.

NYR #32 Card and Layout

This is another card I made for Christmas using a digital stamp and the Copic markers. I cut the image and the shadow using the Cricut and Lacy Labels cartridge as I showed in an earlier video.

I wanted to make a simple page for a class that I am planning on teaching using stickers instead of diecuts. I took my colors from the stickers. The two lower stickers are placed on white cardstock, cut out then used pop dots to make them stand out.

Helpful Hint #1

I just wanted to share how I made one of my Christmas cards using the Cricut cartridge Lacy Labels, Martha Stewart border punch Doily Lace and a digital stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop that I colored using Copic markers.

Simple Layouts, NYR #31 Layout

I have completed the SDU classes and was hired by Michael's and needed to make some simple layouts for samples. I wanted to make some using mainly stickers and embellishments. I also wanted to show how you can let your paper show what other paper will work. I'm working on a page using only stickers no Cricut.
