I don't know about you...

but I had a very busy weekend! The weather here was PERFECT for being outdoors! Spring can't arrive fast enough for me!

Did you see Sunday's Copic Tutorial post? Veronica did an awesome job showing us how to get amazing results with her step-by-step instructions. Here's a card Veronica made using a stamped image she colored with her Copics.

Veronica used the Magnolia font for her '80' and she stamped and heat embossed the background using the Quickutz Triplet Flower Stamps. Here's a close-up of the image...

You can see all the great detail and shadowing! And again, Veronica used her white gel pen to add some highlights. Cute card!

Tammy created this pretty layout using her Quickutz Nutmeg font and some American Crafts cardstock.

What a beautiful photo of her daughter and those delicious Basic Grey patterned papers really make the photo pop!

Scrap-Mart received the Making Memories Slice Wedding Design Cards in last week! This is a really great design card...even if you don't need wedding stuff! Here's a quick card I made with it...

I decided to go with a black background and added the shades of pink and red for some color "pop". The bird shape is actually a single bird with the heart on it's beak. I cut my first shape and simply turned my cardstock upside down (because I used a textured cardstock) to cut the second one. I cut a third in red to get the red heart then layered them together. For the border, I cut one of the decorative edge label shapes at 4" then trimmed the center out until I achieved the desired size. I used the ribbon across the center to hide the seam and attached it at both ends with some Making Memories Shimmer Brads. I snipped the ribbon ends and allowed them to overhang the card just a bit (this card is only 3 3/4" wide so it'll still fit in a standard envelope even with the overhang!). I cut the "amour" with the same red cardstock as the heart and attached it to the ribbon. This card could be given to your sweetheart or even as a gift to newlyweds! The Wedding Design Card has a beautiful script font and some great shapes that would be nice for multiple occasions!

Thanks for stoppin' by today! Don't forget to email me your sketch projects so they can be included in our "With us Wednesday" post. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that this finds you starting off a great Monday! We'll see you back here Wednesday!

Very nice!

I was at the scrap-mart booth at the ck convention in Portland OR. The demonstrator did a wonderful job demonstrating the slice there.

It seems like a very nice little portable tool.
