Scrappigators Copic Club Dover project

Aren't these little guys just too cute? This is our Scrappigators Copic Club, Dover project for the month. The stamps are from Gina K Designs and I used the Don't Worry, Be Happy design elements featured in the Copic Coloring Guide by Colleen Schaan and Marianne Walker. The set requires five copic colors: BG11, BG72, BG74, YR04, and YR07. Of course, I changed things up a bit and used the same color scheme for two additional cards. Besides creating my own original Copic projects, I like incorporating designs from books and magazines into my teaching mix so my students can see they can replicate publication-worthy projects. I also used Paper Cuts Blue Raspberry cardstock and embossed them with both Cuttlebug and Sizzix embossing envelopes. I made my envelope base from white cardstock.

Dave and I had a wonderful time at the Garden State Horse Show in Augusta, NJ. I used Mosaic Moments Forest Green grid paper for the background and Recollections Burgundy cardstock for the mat. I used an off-white letter-size cardstock my journaling and t itleing. I still plan to create some traditional pages documenting this event, but am somwhat happy with the outcome.

More Footloose

This is the second layout I put together from my Close To My Heart (CTMH) Footloose Workshop on the Go. Since there wasn't enough product to put together a third project, I cut the remaining pieces into quarter-inch strips for paper weaving projects later.

I also made six 4.5" square cards using one piece of 12"x12" sheet from the Footloose Bulk Paper pack. Since I distressed every edge of the cover paper, I'm hard-pressed to find one card that appears evenly centered.

My next CTMH WOTG project will be Stella. I ordered my kit two days ago, so I should have it finished by this time next month.
