Hello Everyone,
  Thanks so much for the lovely comments about my ATG gun.  There were also some questions that I want to answer for you.  Before I painted the gun I took it a part so all the black pieces would stay black  except the inside wheels.  They looked like they had a lot of pieces so I left them on.  I then primed all the parts I planed on painting and let that dry about a half a day. I did this to make sure my paint would stick because the color I wanted did not say it was for plastic.  Next I painted my top coat which is called Key Lime and let this dry over night.  I loved the look but still wanted more so I added BoBunny rub on swirls.  Then I sprayed a clear coat on top so my rubons would stay put.  All and all it came out really good, but there are a few things I would change. I would not paint the inside wheels because they connect to each other, and I can see where the paint is chipping where they touch. I would also prep the gun a little better for the paint job( give it a light sanding so the paint adheres better, sand the primer coat for better adhesion before adding top coat)  I would also let the clear coat dry for a day, some of my swirls broke apart from handling to soon.  I know this sounds like a long process but it really wasn't and the work was well worth it. 
   Enjoy your day and Craft On.

Journals and Note pads

Hello Everyone,
  I love to make journals and note pads.  Here are a few that I have made.  Some have blank pages, and others have charts or are a way to keep things organized in my crafting space.  I made one just for my Copic colors so when I go shopping I can put it in my purse and know whats in my stash.  I also make these as gifts for friends. I bind them with my Bind It All.   The first few pics are my Journal.  The first inside page is two pieces of card stock attached to patterned vellum with eyelets.  The Copic pad has the color chart printed on copic paper and cut down to fit you purse nicely.  The small little one with the little girl holding pompoms was made for my daughters teacher. Enjoy and Craft on.(Click on pics to enlarge)

Custom Colored ATG Gun

Hello Everyone,
 I notice that when I craft, I tend to look for the best product I can find, for all the crafting I do.   I bought my ATG gun over a year ago from The Tape Depot.  It is not the Scott 3m brand, but I am so happy I invested in it.  The cost was $25 for just the gun and I can't believe I lived without it for so long.  I also bought a 12pack of adhesive, I have 7 left and I craft a lot.  Well, when it came I was expecting it to be Teal but it was Red. I love color but red was just not bright enough for me so I painted it and added other decorations.  I really,really love my ATG Gun now.  So tell me what you think.  Enjoy.( Click on photo's to enlarge)

Card Design Book

Hello Everyone,
  I  hope you had a lovely long weekend, I did.  I needed a place to store my card designs so I made this little book.  The chipboad cover was pre-cut.  I used K&Company Berry Sweet paper to cover the chipboard.  I love this paper pack, it's so cheerful and fun.  Sock monkey looks so cute.  I punched the holes with the Bind It All, and bound the book with ribbon for a softer look.  The stamp is a Gorjus girl from Sugar Nelle and colored with my copics.
