Here we go, here we go, here we go again, here we go again! This isn't just a post about a page that I got done, it is way more exciting then that! This is a post with another Custom Crops give away! They have donated a $50 gift card to their store, so you can pick out whatever YOU want!!! How awesome is that? And while I'm on the subject of Custom Crops, here is a page I did for them using the mini gel pen holder that is up on their web site here... Work It There are also instructions on how to complete the page and a download for Design Studio as well. Feel free to leave a comment there so they know that you came for a visit!


Also don't forget that I have 2 videos on Custom Crops on how to use the mini gel pen holder and the mini Sharpie holder as well here... Rockin' videos I feel so famous, the first video has over 2,000 views, hehe!

**CLOSED
Now back to that $50 gift card for Custom Crops, so graciously donated by, the one, the only Custom Crops!!! All you have to do is leave me a comment right here, under this post!!! And of course, if you aren't a followerer already, you may just want to try now, as I've decided I want to get this blog a hoppin, and there will just be TONS of ideas on here for everyone!!!
Simple rules, I really, reallly need to know how to find you!!! And if you have an anonymous sign in, please at least leave your name with a last initial, or your screen name and where to find you! I'm still trying to find Kathy, the winner of the last challenge, KATHY COME OUT, COME OUT WHERE EVER YOU ARE!!!

I've been debating getting the holder. Looks like you have mastered this.

Tam said...

I have to say Amy, that does look pretty cool! Pretty neat to add the details with, too. You wouldn't have to cut them out with the blade. Or you could cut some out and draw other parts you didn't want cut.
Your dd is such a mini-me! (of you LOL)

Amy, I am so happy that someone is finally showing us different ways to use pens on our pages. I've had Cricut markers forever and I finally used them in January. Now you have created the mini gel pen holders and the mini marker holder and you are singlehandedly taking scraping to the next level. I hope you continue to show us the magic or markers and pens. Thanks, Jodie jodieruiz@att.net
