I made this awhile back when I bought my Copics.  It’s a chart that has all the Copic colors in it and a space for you to put the colors you have in it. It’s an excellent reference for what colors you want/need and is a good way to keep track of what you have without buying duplicates.  I bought my Copics from Oozak, their individual Ciao markers were $2.68 and were shipped within a day.  I bought a set of Ciaos and will be adding to my collection with individual markers.  Excellent service and free shipping for orders of $50 or more.  Can’t beat free shipping!  I am in no way affiliated with this company, just a very satisfied customer!

Okay, back on track!  This is an easier way to keep my color chart handy, instead of carrying around loose paper.  I like having the true color available before I start coloring.  I printed the color chart (from Sandy Hulsart, aka Shulsart on SCS, copic-color-list-grid) on Stamper’s Select white card stock (PaperTrey Ink), trimmed it down and made covers with the cardboard that came in one of my DP paper packs.  I also added a few extra pages to keep notes and color combos in.  The DP is from K&CO (it’s a specialty pack and is GORGEOUS!!) and the back cover is Ruby Red card stock from Stampin Up.  You could also do this with Stampin Up, CTMH, or anything else you want color chart of.  Thanks for looking!


Thank you all for your patience, I had a nice break and am ready to go again. We visited family and friends back in Philadelphia last month. One of my close friends gave me this beautiful scarf when I left and I was inspired to make her a gift set. This includes an altered notebook, a photo book using my BIA (Bind It All), a thank you card and a matching beaded pen. You can click on the picture for a more detailed view. I used a clear stamp set by Inkadinkado, lots of Dazzling Diamonds and Stickles and the Cricut for the black swirls and lettering. The sentiment is from PTI (Out on a Limb). Thanks, Coll, miss you!

I made three of these little photo books for family and friends….however I forgot to take a picture of the other two before I gave them away!  Oops!  Well, here is a little peek of the last one!

Well, here we go again…my post disappeared!  So here is a shortened version of what I wrote before….

I wanted to try the photo wallet again with more pages and thought the Bind It All would be perfect for that.  This is great for those who have lots of photos to show off.  I added five pages for photos, with three open spots for journaling.  I bought the velcro circles at Wally World in the sewing department and cut them in half.  The coil is 5/8″ which will still open/close easily once the photos are added.  Thanks for looking!

I really wanted to try another flip book only larger this time.  I took two coasters and trimmed an inch off of both of them.  I then placed the coasters together and lined up the cut edges.  Then I glued two pieces (one for each side) of heavy card stock over the “seams” to bind them together, almost like taping them together, only I glued them.  I was concerned about how well the coasters would hold, but they seemed pretty sturdy.  Once some heavy decorative/designer paper was added you couldn’t tell that it wasn’t just one piece.

I added some pockets on the inside of the front and back cover.  I thought it’d be cute to add a few notes, tags, photos and what-not to them.  The paper is a stack from K&Company, it came with 36 double-sided papers.  I picked it up at Joann’s last night.  It is really pretty and I can see myself using it for many projects.  It has so many of the SU colors in it, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Purely Pomegranate, River Rock, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa…and the list goes on!

Once again, here is the tutorial from Lisa at Splendiferous Creations.  She makes it so easy to create something so cool!

These little things are so fast to make that I had to put another one together this morning before we leave.  This time I used Blue Bayou, Soft Sky and Blush Blossom for the card stock and the the patterned paper is DCWV The Far East Stack.  They match perfectly!  I love these little books!

I absolutely love these little flip books and finally had a chance to sit down and try one.  Wow, talk about fast and easy (my kind of project)…and fun to make.  I think I will be making a few more for gifts and doorprizes.  I followed the tutorial from Lisa at Splendiferous Creations and in no time had this cute little book.   Thanks, Lisa!  Awesome tutorial!!!  Basic Grey DP was used along with DCWV The Far East Stack.
