do it in bulk + day watercoloring | Fancy Friday

This month, my Fancy Stampin' Up! friends and I are sharing tips and techniques.  So, I think you are going to need to grab a coffee and relax because this is sure to be inspiring.

One of the things that I am doing regularly is watercolouring with my Stampin' Write markers and aqua painters. In September, I made a video showing blog readers of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine how I watercolour the easy way. You can find the post and video here.

The reason why I think my way is the easiest is because all I need is my markers, an aqua painter and a paper towel.  As long as you are using watercolour paper and have enough water on the image, you can make colouring a snap wherever you go... like on a airplane... which I recently was doing.

But what's my biggest tip that will change your crafting life?

I craft in bulk. #rocketscience

I stamp and emboss in bulk in my craft room.

I colour in bulk while watching TV with my husband. #twobirdsonestone

I die cut in bulk and I punch in bulk too.  I usually place all these images in a jewelry dish on my craft table.

Why is this amazing??? it means that you can have these images on the side ready for you whenever you need them.

Inspiration made easy.

I literally place elements together and staple. Then adhere to a card base. Done.

Now that your mind is blown, take a minute to pull yourself together. Aw.

Now go visit my friend, Erica Cerwin from Pink Buckaroo Designs.  She will sure take your brain to another level.
