Copic book

I found the idea for this book on this blog by scs member 3 little love bugs. I thought it was such a great idea so I copied it! I made one large version to keep in my stamping room and one small version to keep at the computer or in my purse so that when I shop for copics I know what I have. I know it's hard to believe but I've bought the same thing twice before. So anyway this is the outside. I made them pretty plain because they're just for me.

Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye (small) Fancy Pants Designs (large)
Letters: Cricut Mickey Font on the small one. KI Memories Bubble Letters stickers on the large one.
Prima Flowers and a brad on the large one
Bind-it-all

This is the inside. I didn't want to use the chart that 3 little love bugs used because I couldn't cut it out neatly with a margin on the outside so I made my own in Word. My original plan was to make one with the 22 lines and then one with 44 but after typing in 322 colors and numbers, I decided that was enough so I just made the smaller tables close together and used that for the larger pages. If anyone wants this chart let me know and I'll figure out a way to post it. I colored it all in before I bound it so that it would be easier to avoid the bleed-through. I will have to be sure to only color on one sheet at a time for any color updates. On that sheet on the left of the small book, you can see an extra bleed-through. That's where I dropped a pen before I had a chance to cap it. Bummer but I wasn't going to redo it. These pens color and bleed through FAST!

A terrific idea. Especially when shopping to avoid duplicates.

that is so neat! Those books are wonderful! I don't own any copics (gasp!), but plan to in the near future!

Tee hee, since you are the one that is going to start me on what's sure to be an addiction to Copics.... would it be possible to send me the chart as an attachment?

Thanks sweetie!

I love your copic book. I have no idea what a copic is but the book looks great. I have my "stamp index" where I have an artists sketch book and on each page I have my stamp sets stamped. Makes it easy for me when I'm trying to see what stamps I have. On the other end of that book I have all of my ink pads (just took a small stamp and stamped it in each ink pad I have). I wrote down the name of the Ink as well as the brand. Only think I wish is that I would have grouped them together by color.
