SOC 7th Anniversary Blog Hop

The theme of this blog hop is "Sisterhood". As some of you may already know from previous posts every year my sisters, adult nieces and myself go away for a "Girls Night Out". This year it will be in Columbus, Ohio. As a gift I made journals for everyone. What I want is for everyone to write a little note of love and encouragement on the inside panels. These are altered composition notebooks. I will also be giving away as my blog candy a Cricut cartridge "Once Upon a Princess". To be eligible to win you have to be a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this posting with a way of contacting you should you win. Remember to visit each blog for more chances to win other gifts.

Baby Girl Paper Bag Album

This is a newly completed paper bag album. This one was made with pink bags that I purchased at WalMarts. The binding is made from craft foam sheets.

These are the inner pages. The baby bottles and pacifier were cut from Sizzix dies using the Cuttlebug.

This is the back page of the album along with a white tag. There are 4 of the larger pink tags that I used the Tim Holtz "On The Edge" die to accent the edges.

My Copic Storage

After seeing the new Copic Marker Storage Bag I wanted to reshow my bag that I put together September 2010. It is a cooler that I removed the plastic insert from. It was purchased from WalMarts for around $9.00. I'm not into football but It was the right size and price. It is very portable but mainly sits on my desk. Right now it holds 181 markers, 14 Spica markers, 16 refills and my color booklet. They are divided by color. I love the fact that it zips closed and has a nice shoulder strap.

This is the outside of the cooler. It rests on its side for easy access.

This is the front pocket that holds the refills, some hand sanitizer, baby wipes, and a jump drive that I store a backup of my digital images.

This is the main compartment for my markers. I have an assortment of holders to fit. I have dividers between the colors.

This is one of the side pockets. It holds my Copic booklet with my colors and notes. In the other pocket I have a photo organizer to hold stamped images.
Here is the previous post of my holder:
