My blog is a mess but I have new Copics

Created a new banner this morning and when I uploaded it my gadgets moved to the bottom of the blog. I have googled this till I am blue in the face and still can't seem to fix it! GGGRRRRRR

But on a lighter note.....I order new Copics the other day and they arrived in todays mail. I am telling you...all Copic marker people out there, buy them from They are the best, cost less and ships so fast!!!!! Sorry about all the exclamation points but I am just so darned excited about my new markers.

I also took a trip today to a stamp store and found out the carry the Copic Xpress Paper. HELLO! Three packages later and I was on my way. They were 14% off too! Again with the exclamation marks.

May I present to you....

Using PNG files in Silhouette SD

The Silhouette yahoo group I belong to brought up the question today of how to use a png file in Silhouette. I may not know everything about the Silhouette Studio software but this is one thing I did know! I use png's all the time as digital stamps when making cards or scrapbook pages. So for anyone who needs to know.....

Tip for Tuesday

I was talking to my best friend today and gave her my newest organization tip and thought I would share it with the world! Yes I know the whole world doesn't read my blog but I can dream can't I? So here it is......

For all scrapbookers out there that have little bits of cardstock saved for just that right project because you can't bear to part with any little bit of that expensive stuff, you know who you are...Here is what I do to keep it under control.

Joann's has these Protect-n-Store clear 12x12 containers. I have had a couple for years now and have been just throwing paper in willy nilly until now.

I finally got tired of ruffling through the paper to find that perfect piece of brown cardstock (and yes there is such a thing and you know it)so I bought 1 gallon zip lock bags at the dollar store and I put families of colors in each bag. GENIOUS!!!!

Now I open up the container, go to the brown, or some other delightful color bag and grab whatever size or shape there-of piece I need for my project and go!

Since purchasing my Silhouette SD I have started using more and more little teeny tiny pieces of paper so this has been a life saver of time!

Just doing my bit for crafters everywhere. The ones who read my blog. If there are any that read my blog. "Hello? tap, tap this thing on?"
