Back to School Excitement and some Fab News!!!

I have finally become a Copic Certified Designer!!! I've been trying and trying to find a class to get this done but there were never any close to me but finally, on August 29, 2010 they had a class here in Albuquerque and I was accepted within a few hours of submitting my application so I was super excited!!!

So, here is one of the cards I made after taking the class and learning so much more about Copics. I used a new technique taught in the class that I never, ever thought of to create the denim effect on his jeans - how cute is that??? If you want more details on how it was done stop by my blog - Memories Unleashed!!!


I hope you enjoy!!

This blog exists so we can exchange homemade card ideas. Please include labels when you post! Here are a few ideas, but feel free to make up your own: Christmas, birthday, stamps, eyelets, stickers, tri-fold, brads, ribbon, simple, etc.

I wanted to share my blog "creation story." I was great at creating and stashing cards away, but my friends made fun of my hoarding. I never sent the cards! I was afraid that I could never recreate the hard-earned ideas. I began photographing cards and eventually created this blog, which allows all of us to have a record of what we have created. The title of the blog applies to me and probably no one else who posts on here...but as much as I've tried to come up with a new title, this one stuck. I'm so grateful to all of you for contributing and following this blog!!
