Practice makes perfect!

I am HALF way through my Copics class and I thought I'd share with you some of the stuff I have been coloring. :)

These are definitely not perfect (and I need more practice) but the class had helped a lot!

This bird image is just so pretty and I love some of the color combis I was playing around with.

Some flowers :)

Coloring two different hairstyles with the same colors.

And learning how to color humans! :)

Vampire robots and bats are pretty fun to color too! :)

Now .. back to the class for MORE!!

I love Copics!

Oh yeah yeah!! 
Doesn't it all look so yummy? :)

I finally bit the bullet and signed up for my first ever online class! 
And being my first class - of coz it had to be about Copics right? :)

It's Day 5 of the class and I'm only starting on Day 1. 
(I didn't realize it started and signed up late.. *LOL*)

The above is something I learned on Day 1 - on how to blend and mixing my own color combis. 

Back to the drawing scrappy board.

40,000 Unity FB Friends Celebration

Guess what?

Unity now has (more than) 40,000 Facebook friends!!
Can everybody say WOOT WOOT? :)

So, before I spill on what the Celebration is all about, here's a card I made today.
Oh yeah... Here I have officially started on my CHRISTMAS cards! 

Remember our Unity Stamp + Faber Castell Hop last week? Click HERE if you've missed it.
Well, I just couldn't get enough of the Gelatos so, I used it here again! :)

Using the snowflake stamps from 09/14 KOM "Happy, Thankful and Blessed" and the sentiment "His Presence" - I did an emboss resist technique to get this watercolor effect.

Here's the tutorial step-by-step for this card.

Altered Coffee Cup Holder

It's Inspiration Time at The Cutting Cafe again and this week it's all about packaging.

For today's post, I have used the Coffee Cup Holder set and altered it.
 Rather than using it for coffee (since I am not very much of a coffee drinker), I have used it to store my scrappy supplies instead :)

I love how cute the holder came out to be. I've added some flowers and bling too :)
You could opt not to have the holder and instead use it as boxes to store your supplies.

Remember to go to The Cutting Cafe blog and leave a comment for a chance to win any 3 sets from the store. YES!! 3 sets! :) Regina is awesome that way.

Happy weekend.
