Welcome Jenn Balcer to the Copic Certification Team

Whew Hew... we are adding another very talented gal to our Copic certification team! Her name is Jenn Balcer and if you have ever been on Splitcoaststampers you already are well aware of her awesome artwork and talent. She will be helping Lori teach classes in Texas.

Welcome Jenn - you are going to rock this team even more than it rocks now! Whew Hew.

Suggest Copic Certification Locations & card samples

Where to do the next Copic Certification..... hmmmm

If you think you have a great idea on where to schedule the next Copic Certification, please let me know where and why you feel it would be a great location. I can then consider that location. Our main focus is for store owners, class teachers, and design team members, so that they can teach locally to everyone else. I represent Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah and Arizona. We just finished the certification in Phoenix where it was extremely popular! We will have to go back there again soon!

Here is a cute image from non other than Our Craft Lounge. He is being released this week! Whew hew.. great for boy and masculine cards and you can even make girly cards by using girly colors! Too Cute. Background is colored with Copic Airbrush, image colored with Copic markers. Dies are all Spellbinders! Too fun for summer
Here is another Card using Dandy Days from Our Craft Lounge! Later this week I hope to have a few samples from a few Stamp Companies that are new to me. I can't wait to get caught up so I can play with something new!
Copic Certification now open in Santa Barbara, Las Vegas and several other locations. Hurry and register now before it is too late!

Busy, Busy Busy! blog hop candy prize

Boy time is flying and so am I. I was a lucky girl to go to Cozumel for my 50th birthday. Whew Hew. I got certified for Scuba and got to dive 7 dives in 4 days! What a blast! Loved every minute of it!
Then back to the real world as I flew off to Portland Oregon the day after returning from Mexico. I taught a few classes there and visited with my wonderful son Austin, and some of my best friends.

Now it is time to get back to my blog postings The first little sample is Coco the cat from Stampavie... I would have never bought this stamp until my friend/student Debbie told me how much she loved the image. I am so glad she talked me into it... this cat is so fun and easy to color. Great beginner copic image!

Second image is from Our Craft Lounge Vintage Roses. This is a very elegant set that I think is perfect for Mother's Day... I think I will send this one to my mom (the best mom in the world). Note that both layouts are similar - I just turned the one piece sideways and changed the ribbon... see what a different look you can get by just playing with the pieces!

This is a great wallet that you can store your own Copic markers. I am glad to announce that the winner seems to really think she needs the copic wallet for her collection...... isn't it funny what we NEED. Winner is......

I deleted my earlier post, which said how much I loved your bright, cheery card, because I'd forgotten to leave my email. I totally NEED a Copic wallet for my little collection.....
Email me privately at so we can get your prize mailed off asap!
