Playing with Copic Markers for the First Time....

I've mentioned in one of my previous posts that I have decided to take a plunge at using Copic Markers. I'm still learning and of course, using these pens requires a lot of practice and patience but I'm really having fun!!! Sharing my first 3 super simple cards using Copic....I just love these stamps. They are so cute!!! They are from Stampavie and you can get them at Catchy Crafts - Hornsby. More stamps will be arriving this coming week and I can't wait to get my hands on some of them.
Will be practicing more!!! Thanks for visiting!!!

First 2 classes here in Sydney...

I was very fortunate to be able to get a part time work in this place...For a scrapper, this is a very good place to be...This store is Catchy Crafts located at Hornsby, NSW. I was also given slots to teach fellow scrapbookers... This really made me nervous... but very happy. I haven't had a chance to take photos of the First class I've conducted (I forgot to bring my camera - how about that?!) but it was a kids scrapping class. I had 8 students aged 8 to 12 years old during that time. And it was fun teaching them the basics.

My 2nd class was held last May 15 and it is an adults scrapping class... I was so nervous before the class started. And here is the layout that I shared with them...Title: 1 Fine Day

Materials Used: K and Co papers; Martha Stewart Deep Edge Puncher; Bazzill Cardstocks; Diamond Glaze; Webster pages journaling tags; MME flock alpha; Prima lace, Colorbox - black ink

Its a double page layout with a couple of distressing techniques. I called the class "Dressed to Distress." Here are some close up photos...And here are my wonderful students....

Will be having another class this coming Friday, 28th of May. Will be sharing a sneek peek of it in tomorrow's post. For details and inquiries, call 9477 4401.

Hope to see you and thanks for reading!!!!

I'm afraid I don't have any blog readers anymore... (long post.)

and its my fault... after a month of no updates, what can I expect. I'm so sorry guys... I've been wanting to update my blog for the longgggeeeessssttt time now - regularly, but I have a few issues with my health that stopping me from doing this. I use to be very productive at night... doing all sorts of stuff and one of them are scrapping and updating my blog. But sometimes, after dinner, I feel so tired and just wanting to rest. I really hope that this is just a simple thyroid problem thats causing all these and I hope the doctors here will be able to figure that out soon. I really want to be back my normal self to be able to do the things I like whenever I want.

Of course I am still scrapping... that is something very difficult to give up. Its something that makes me happy and fulfilled. But I do it whenever my body permits. And for the past weeks, there are lots of things going on and I would like to share them to you...

First... I'm so happy to share that I'm on Scrapbooking Memories Vol. 12 No. 4
I was so happy that they've asked me to do a product challenge for the magazine. I was asked to play with Bo Bunny goodies and I just had a blast with it.and here is the page...It's such an honor doing this...And here is my mini book.....There you have my Bo Bunny Mini Book.

And I finally took the plunge at using these....

Will be sharing my first 3 cards using Copic Markers on my next post. So fun coloring!!!
Thats it... I hope my readers will be visiting me here again... will really try to update this regularly again... See yah and thanks for reading!
