Cards and Copics

This is the mother's day card I made for Chris' mom. I used Papertrey's Scarlet Jewel and Ocean Tides paper; Scarlet Jewel ribbon; and complementary copic marker colors, and stamped the images (from PTI's Vintage Picnic) with PTI's True Black ink before distressing the edges. I used the "happy birthday" senitment from the same set on the inside in Scarlet Jewel.

I wanted to test the difference between the copic markers and the la plumb (sp?). The above image is what my sister colored using the other markers.

And of course, this is what I colored using the copics. What a difference! I seriously don't think I'll ever go back to regular markers again... unless of course, I'm coloring with my son lol. :D

Pink, Red, and Butterflies

The first picture is from the baby album. I created a page for each month, with a 2-page layout for 1 and 12 months, including a 2-page layout for "our new arrival" with a spot to add "date, time, place, weight, and length." The second pic is the thank you card. I know, it's not completely perfect, but making 50 of them, you get to a point where you really don't care if the paper is a little bit off.
