Saturday Playing and a Copic Journal

Are you getting to do something crafty today?  My husband went off to a bow shoot today so I got some laundry in, a load in the dishwasher, vacuumed the floors and headed into my scraproom.  Not sure I should keep calling it a Scraproom as I rarely scrap anymore.  My passion has become card-making.  I have recently invested in a bind it all machine though and my plan is to start doing some mini albums for the grand babies.   So maybe I will keep referring to it as that for now!!!  Anywhoooo, as I said I got to play a bit this morning.  I have been working on a project for ME!!!  I am pretty excited about that really, as I am usually making a card for someone else.  Have you heard of Pinterest?  Dana got me started on it recently, it is a type of bookmarking however, you get to put them on your board and you can find things easily.  I am loving it.  Recently I found this project and "pinned" it so I could go back and find it.  It is a Copic Marker Journal.  Well her journal led me to Copic Munkies where you can download all the PDF files for this journal.  Now all that being said I am excited to show you my creation.  I wanted to make this journal to take with me to my Copic Certification Class next weekend.  I am beyond excited to go.
I started with some of my favorite papers by My Mind's Eye.  These are from the Stella Rose collection. I love the aqua and brown colors in this line.  Don't you just love this image from Some Odd Girl?  You all know how I love my coffee, so when I was browsing through their digital images I couldn't resist these images called Going Out for Coffee.   This one is Coffee Mae.  I thought she was fitting for the front of my journal. 
I recently won a prize package over at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I was super excited to win.  With it I won this ribbon and a package of Glubers.  I made this flower with it and some of the ribbon from the May package that I received.  The metal sentiment is from Making Memories.  The little create charm is from CTMH.
On the inside cover I made a pocket with the Labels One Grand Nestie Die.  I sewed 2 together to make a pocket for some extra images.  I plan on taking some to the class and I am always coloring some up for the next project. 
There are 4 sections.  The first is for my Copic Inventory. I mark the Ciaos with a C and the Re-inkers I have with an R.
The next section is Hair and Skin.  I have just started my book so only have one page colored in.  I had to get at least one done before I posted my project!!
And some pages.
I love these Some Odd Girl Images for coloring hair and skin.  They are just so much fun.  
The next section is Color Combos.  
We all have some favorites.  I have just begun, but started with 2 of my favorite Red combos. I will be filling this section up, believe me!!!
The next section is Marker Families
I haven't started this section yet.  I will though!!

Here is what the back looks like.  And a close ups of the front.  Hard to see but I used glossy accents on her eyes, her headband, and her coffee cup.
Thanks so much for bearing with me for all these photos.  I am really looking forward to playing with my journal and I really hope you were inspired as well.  Thanks again for stopping by, wish I could put a pot of coffee on and we could sit and chat a while!

Very awesome project! I'll be looking for mine in the mail over the next couple of weeks... :) I downloaded the inside pages at the beg of the year, so no need to put those in my journal, Brenda!

Seriously, quite awesome. Love the papers and embellishments you used.
