Shop {for Copic Markers} 'Til You Drop!!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!!

I have a fun little project to show you today!! Now, I love to stamp, I love to buy stamps, paper, ink and most recently, I love to buy Copic Markers!! Not only do I love to buy all these things, and use all these things, I also love to organize my supplies!!

In order to organize and keep track of my growing collection of Copic Markers, I decided to make a Copic Marker Chart Book!!!

I started by creating a table in Word listing the number and name of each and every Copic Sketch Marker available, and I also made two columns, one to mark off when I own the marker, the other to mark off when I own the re-inker!!

**If anyone is interested in this Word Document, please leave a comment here and I will email it to you! I can't figure out how to attach the file to this post!! Thanks!! **

After printing out my table, I then colored in each Copic Marker that I have, along with the re-inker's that I have. I then trimmed each page, leaving a 1 inch border on the left side to leave room for the binding.

For the cover of my book, I used this yummy Teal cardstock from the Father's Day Key Ingredients from Taylored Expressions. I used my Scor-Pal to create a scrapbook type of binding. I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch three holes in my Copic Chart as well as the cover, and then attached them with three brads.

I stamped these GORGEOUS flowers from Fresh Flowers by Taylored Expressions in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock, and framed it with Oval Nestabilities. I colored my flowers with Copic Markers, and the sentiment on the bottom of my book is from Downtown Diva and was punched with my Word Window Punch and layered on a Scallop Oval, 1 1/4 Inch Circle and 1 3/8 Inch Circle Punches!!!

All the cardstock, patterned paper and ribbon on this project are from the Father's Day Key Ingredients. I finished off my card with some paper piercing!!!!

This book has a place on honor on my stamp desk already! It makes it SOOO easy when ordering more Copic Markers (grin!!), and I also love it as a guide to see what colors I want to use on a project!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!! I hope you enjoy my Copic Marker Chart Book!!!

I'd like a copy...I think starting at the beginning is a great idea...and since I think I only have four markers, it's the perfect beginning point!

kathy b said...

Why reinvent the wheel, I'd love to take advantage of the list you have created...I need to do something to keep from replicating my colors when I am purchasing, and to stop testing colors each time I am coloring, because I am going to run out of ink just doing that!!! Thank you!
