One of my favorite Copic techniques this year is creating glitter sticker sheets and bringing them to life with creative coloring. When I saw Elizabeth Crafts Designs’ gold holly tree stickers… I knew they’d look fabulous in greens and reds for the holidays.
I’ve added three levels of dimension to the rolling, snowy hills:
The sticker sheet also comes with stunning snowflake tree images. They make a great alternative holiday card in unconventional shades of lavender/blue:
Want to make your own? I’ll be teaching these cards at a class on December 6th in the DFW metroplex. Contact me for more info.
Thought I’d share my new homemade Copic storage with you. It holds every Copic sketch pen inside in beautiful, color order. Can you tell I’m excited? There are two layers of light grid cut down, filed, and attached to a wood interior frame for stability. There is plenty of room on top to store your latest project, and a lid so you can tuck it all away (without any clutter). I’m in love!
Want one of your own? My friend Sandy’s husband makes these for sale, and let me tell ya – they are totally worth it. You can contact Sandy at firstname.lastname@example.org for availability & pricing info. 🙂
I’ve been looking for a good way to store my metal Nestabilities and other dies for a while. With a little Pinterest inspiration, I finally found the perfect portable solution.
I had a couple packages of 13″x13″ cardboard Zutter sheets on hand (nice and sturdy). They come in packs of four. I adhered magnetic vent covers to one side (courtesy of Home Depot), which were easily cut to size with my paper cutter.
The finished sheets happen to fit perfectly inside of an Artbin super satchel container. You can generously fit 5-9 sets of dies per sheet. So needless to say, I have room now to grow my collection!

I love playing around with different media and discovering how you can use them in new and different ways. I recently discovered that polymer clay can work great with Copic markers.
On Saturday, May 19 at 9:30 a.m., I’ll be teaching a class on just that…creating polymer clay pendants from scratch and customizing them with your favorite Copic colors using an airbrush system. It is very simple to do… no prior polymer clay experience is required. Here are four samples of the types of pendants that will be made:
