Wahooooo....I escaped for a few hours today hehehehe

So I went and did a little wee bit of shopping today.... scrappy therapy style shopping that is hehehe... The lovely Donna & I toddled off to Arnolds this morning to see what exciting new things were happening...had a sticky beak through the delightful stamp range OMG they have an enormous range of stamps to die for :) Decided on buying a gorgeous set of HeroArts ClingRubber Stamps "Happy Birthday Cupcakes" Set ...yummalicious!!!!

Hmm some Kaiser papers, Cardstock ho-hum kinda boring I know but ya just can never have too much cardstock... oh some yummy Kaiser Flower Blings :) dang how I just love the pretty lil sparklies...and then we trundled on over to Lawnton to Paper Addictions and I treated myself at long last too one of these....(finally!!!! yay)

Which of course required me to buy some of these....

which then inspired me to come home and play with some stamps & my Copic Markers (again lol) soooooo I put together this simple little layout tonight with the stamps that I coloured today...Miss Amy's 3rd Birthday piccie.

I have used my new Birthday Cupcakes Stamp Set and a "Shy Kiki LaRue" Digi Stamp from CC Designs at All That Scraps...these digi stamps are awesome, and the printer ink works beautifully with Copic markers, no problems with smudging and of course, you can size/resize to whatever dimensions YOU like!!!

Anyhooo I'm off to bed... been a long day of shopping, oh and I forgot to mention I managed to wrestle 5 monsters into the car and took them to the movies today, we saw Princess and the Frog, kinda cute, somewhat funny in places, nice movie for the kids, loads of Popcorn and Frozen Icee Drinks....brain freeeeeeze omg I forgot how bad that hurts lol ... soooo I'm beat, back tomorrow to post a pic of my layout as the lighting here at night is just woeful :(

Hugz...Kris xo


  1. Hey Kris... haven't been by in ages (yep slack arse me!) but love your new look blog gf! Totally rocks.... need you to design something spesh for me I think lols....

    Your lo is awesome Kris LOVE IT big time! Your new stamps and copic colouring is just wicked too.

    Please tell a dumbo like me what do you use the new tool for with the copics? Just to blend the colours better or? Been reading up big time and looking at the tuits too.... hummm loving those copics girl loving em!

    xo S

  2. Ahhhh, took me a minute to work out what tool you were talking about Miss Shirl lol whoooosh straight over ma head tonight girl lol lol Nah...the tool has nothing to do with the's for applying the gorgeous Distress Inks from Tim Holtz :)...Copics blend all by themselves, the more you colour the more it blends, absolutely unreal fun, you'll defo have to look into them girl, you'd love them...xo Kris

  3. Just fantabulous Kris.....I know a really good use for that layout.......

  4. Lovin the cupcakes Kris! Gorgeous layout! I am a sucker for bright colours. I keep buying muted coloured papers cos I might use them one day but I tend to go for the brights more often than not!
    I have just invested in some promarkers which I think are a bit like copics! I have't tried them out yet but I hope they look as good as your copics!
    take care,
