Good Friends and Good News

Hello Crafters! 

So today I'm sharing  some exciting news  . . . .

I'm joining the MarkerPOP team! 

I've ordered from them for quite some time. They have super awesome prices on Copics and carry a lot of my favorite stamp companies. Their DT is just so talented and I'm thrilled to be working with them. 

Can we just talk about how I bombarded you with videos. Ha. 
I made them all separately with no intention of posting them all in 48 hours but life happens. I post every Tuesday for Create A Smile. i also posted on the 10th and 25th of each month for A2ZScrapbooking. 
The 25th was a Tuesday. Chaos ensued. 

Okay I'm exaggerating but you get the point. It was a lot. However, you all have been so supportive. I can't believe how many of you watched that 40 minute video. gah! If you liked the video or have something you would like to see or even constructive criticism I'm all ears. Note the word constructive please. I feel like it's sad I even have to mention that. 
Anywho . . .
I haven't had a chance to play along with challenges in ages. I'm so stoked to have the time to do it. This time I'm using CAS(E) this Sketch's current sketch. 

So cute right? 

I used the "hill" die from WPlus9's Landscape Borders die to cut the top edge of my polka dot paper. To create the side I just lined up my paper trimmer and cut it on an angle. Don't ask me where that paper came from. I'm not that organized. I found it on the floor of my craft room. No, seriously. 

It was only a matter of time before this cutie from Party Animal got together with that handsome fella from Unforgettable. I copic colored them and fussy cut them out along with the balloon. 
The sentiment is from Party Animal too. 

Aren't they the most adorable little guys? 

Thanks for stopping by. 


  1. Absolutely delightful card! Love the happy colors! And big congrats to you, my friend! So exciting! They are very lucky to have you on their team!

    The only thing I found myself wanting in your videos was the camera being closer to your coloring. Otherwise they were all just fine. Loved watching you create! ♥

  5. Congratulations!
    It is sad that you would have to mention it, I can't imagine with your fabulous work that you would get anything BUT rave reviews anyway! :D and again, congrats and HURRAH!!

  6. Yay! That's great news. Have yet to sit down and watch your video - getting 10 minutes to myself without kids before I fall asleep is nigh on impossible! Criticism should always be constructive. If it's just nasty comments about how rubbish your cards are (which isn't true, btw, just a statement for my point!), then it's not really criticism in my book. Love this card, it is so sweet and love the take on the sketch. Xx

  7. Congrats Kelly!! Your card is adorable, such s cute design and great coloring!!
