Remember to press lightly when using these markers. you don't need to soak the paper to get good color results. You only want to see a little bit of color coming thru the back (depending on the paper you are using.) Over soaking your paper will result in bleeding outside your stamped image.
Remember to practice with your copics! Practice makes perfect!

that is why I made this layout of them. One of the rare moments when they are cute and innocent and i had to make a cute layout that represented their cuteness.
For the journaling spot, I used the corner and border punches from stampin up. and letter stickers for the title. I few buttons as embellishments and the page was complete.
I just love the photo of my babies. They are so sweet in the photo. Now if they could behave that well all the time...

Here are a few layouts I've made based on her sketches:
I really suggest you check out these sketch challenges and how everyone is interpreting them as their own!

Then I start thinking, well scrapbooking is about telling a story with photos and I don't want my photos to get lost in my layouts so how can i embellish them without over powering my photos but still bring out the theme?
In these two layouts, (based on Ali Davis sketches) I used a minimal amount of embellishments. I used paper that really focuses on the theme at hand. Both layouts are about being in a garden. In the "Picking Veggies" layout I used green and pink papers with flourishes and swirls. To me they represent vines and flowers. In the "Our Garden..." layout I used a green garden like paper and a dirt brown paper for its representation. On both layouts I used stitching and stamping to bring it all together. Each layout has its unique elements that embellish without overpowering.
In this layout "Introducing Colten" I used two small strips of patterned paper above and below the photo matting and two solid blue cardstock circles in the background to bring color into the layout. My embellishments of choice? Stamped circles! Cute little animals like you would see in a babies room go with the theme of the brand new baby photos.
And you can apply a simple design to cards as well. Here I embossed the solid background papers and added a little ribbon. Cute and simple and doesn't over do it!
You can have simple layouts without being boring. Not over embellishing allows your layouts to shine!! As much as I love my embellishments, I love to hoard them too. So if you're like me, don't feel bad! You can still design beautiful layouts without it being too busy!
Ok onto the giveaway! I have a box of goodies to give to one lucky follower! Some of the supplies are used/leftovers, some are items I never used or will never use and I hope someone else can use. Some of it is punched shapes, stamped images, cards and embellishments. I also have an acrylic album and a Fiskars Ultra Shape Xpress (brand new) and a handmade item for you. Wanna win???

In other news, I will be taking a Copic Certification class in September. I'm totally psyched! I love those markers and to be certified would be awesome. Maybe I could get my LSS into letting me demo the markers for stamping! If not them then maybe my local art supply store? The lady that runs Cook's is so super nice!
As for today, I went scrapbook shopping! I am so happy to have some much needed supplies. I was completely out of adhesive runners (i'm now stock up on 7). I also got tacky tape, a cricut cutting mat, a2 envelopes, some new paper and cardstock, some new blades for my Fiskars Trimmer (HEART), two more copics (hehe) and of course a few more random items.
On the fiskateers site I am hosting my very first ATC swap that is going until September 18th. The swap is closed and the ladies are creating their cards but what they are creating makes me super happy...FAIRY ATCs!!! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. I will post mine closer to when the swap is over.
