New Marker Stands and Copic Products

Written by Stef on . Posted in Blog

Hi everyone,

We have some new products we wanted to tell you about.  We received some of the wooden marker stands by La La Land Crafts.  These can be left as is or customised using paints or mists or you could even colour them using your markers.  You can store markers other than copics, such as distress markers.  Tip:  Distress markers are better stored horizontally but for copic markers it doesn't matter whether they are stored hoizontally or vertically.

We have also just got the copic blending journals and a copic colouring guide for colouring people.  The journals are a great place to keep a record of you favourite colour combos.  You can check out this post on the Copic Oz blog to see some ideas for using the blending journals.

Thanks for stopping by,

Stef

 

Kaisercraft Wardrobe Storage Cabinet

Kaisecraft Wardrobe Storage Cabinet decorated using Basecoat papers

Hi everyone,

Rhonda created this beautiful cabinet and agreed to let us share it on the blog.  Thanks Rhonda!

Rhonda used the some papers from the Kaisercraft Basecoat range, along with some of the new wooden flourishes (the locks) from Kaisercraft as well as some other bits and pieces.  We think she has done a great job decorating the Wardrobe Storage Cabinet by Kaisercraft.  Rhonda has a great knack with off the page projects and we have some more projects to share with you over the next few weeks.

Thanks for stopping by,

Bo Bunny Mama-razzi Layout

Written by Kristy on . Posted in Blog

Hi everyone,

I have shared this on my blog too but I wanted to share it here because it gives an example of another way of creating quick and co-ordinated pages.  If you are short of time and want to create a scrapbook layout or even cards or mini books, then combination sticker sheets are definitely worth a look.  Lots of the different manufacturers now make combination sticker sheets that include alphas, phrases and embellishment style stickers so there are different styles available to suit different preferences.  When teamed up with some coordinating papers it makes it easy to bring unity to your projects.

24/7 Double Page Pocket Layout

Divided Page Protector Scrapbook Page Using Simple Stories 24/7

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a double page pocket layout using the 24/7 papers by Simple Stories.  Pocket scrapbooking or scrapbooking in divided page protectors is really popular and is a great way to get your photos and stories recorded in a relatively short amount of time.  I am finding this is an excellent way for me to make sure I have the memories that I want to remember all in the same place and is another way of 'backing up my photos' (so if something happened that meant I lost our digital images I would at least have a copy of my favourite photos).  Don't get me wrong I back up our photos on an external drive too.  It is also great for when I want to create a 12x12 layout or even a double page layout that expands on the stories that I have quickly recorded.  I am also finding I can do a bit at a time and I can do this type of scrapbooking when I am tired and not feeling very creative.  My kids are loving looking at the album and laughing at the funny things they say that I have written down and looking at the things we have done.

TC Stationery Noted Card

Written by Kristy on . Posted in Cards

Handmade card using the Stationery Noted Collection

Hi everyone,

Today I have another clean and simple card using the Teresa Collins Stationery Noted colllection.  This card uses some of the stickers from the sticker sheet, a cute chipboard button, a white flower, thread and the same sentiment as the last card. This card came together really quickly.  There are bunch of other stickers on the sheet that could be used to make cards too.  Hope you had a great weekend and I will be back later in the week with a different project to share.  Check out our facebook page for a picture of the different elements of the Stationery Noted range.

Thanks for stopping by,
