Winnie & Walter: Copic Organization and Plaid

Hi all! We’ve got a really versatile set today for the Winnie & Walter release … stripes! Oh the possibilities!

Winnie & Walter, LLC

Would you believe, up until this Christmas, I owned FIVE Copic markers?! And three of them were about the same shade of red. So, you can imagine how excited I was when my mother-in-law and grandma-in-law bought me my first honest-to-goodness set of Copics!! We went with this suggested list from Jennifer McGuire. 

I love my markers, but hate getting tricked by what color they really are. So I used the dashed line from the stripes set to make a grid. Each square was filled in with colorings from the actual marker. It’s so helpful to see them all together when choosing colors! It’s also a good reminder where to put the markers after I’m done. I probably could have made a grid in Photoshop, but to be honest, it seemed easier to mark the exact lines I wanted and just stamp it.

Here’s an example of plaid made with this set. So fun to play with! I love that the panel is one layer and the top remains white, so you really know that the plaid was stamped and that it’s not patterned paper layered on top of white paper. Hey, we’ve got to get credit for things here, right?!

The sentiment is from the huge mix of words in yesterday’s Big, Bold and Party set. I really love adding a more custom sentiment here instead of "congrats" or "welcome baby." Nothing wrong with those, but it's nice to go with something different. I covered the dot on the “i” with a gold star to match the sentiment.

Stay tuned for the next two days … we’ve got two great party sets coming out that you’re really going to love!

Thanks for stopping by!
