It’s shakey shaker window time again…

I just got a new batch of shaker windows in..  new shapes and sizes.  This time I have 3″ Square, 2.5″ round and some 2×3′ rectangles to add to the 3″ circles I already have.  I haven’t had a chance to bust them open and make any projects yet…. but expect to see some later this month. These are all 1/4 ” high as usual, so lots of room if you want to try out the fun shaker card games I make.

In the meantime…. leave a comment below telling me what new craft goodies you just got, or what you would make with these….and I’ll pick a random person and send you a mixed pack to play with.  And since I am feeling very nice and relaxed after my much needed mini-vacation… I won’t even restrict  it to US only entries this time.

CAABjournaling2


I thought I would share this contest with everyone because It’s something I’d love to do  for a friend of mine…it’s on my project “todo” list  She’d love a bible like this and even more so knowing it was colored just for her.

She isn’t a colorer’ herself, so I know she wouldn’t buy one to do her own.

So, if you  always wanted to do your own bible, or would love to color one and give it to someone special…. hop on over to the Cute As A Button Facebook page and  enter the contest to win this fab Creative Journaling Bible.

Full details can be found  on the Cute As A Button Facebook Group page


“This contest is for all of you ladies who love to Bible Journal. The WINNER will receive a BRAND NEW Creative Journaling Bible which contains nearly 400 hand-drawn, Scripture accompanying line-art illustrations which are placed throughout the Bible to enhance embracement of The Word. Only U.S. entries please.”


Zig Kurecolor Alcohol Markers & Giveaway

It seems to come up a lot lately in some of the cardmaking and coloring groups I am in on Facebook… lots of people are trying out the  Zig Clean Color Markers, but few know about the Zig Kurecolor set.  Since I am a huge fan of the Zig Kurecolor markers I have, I thought I would share this info for anyone who might be interested.

I had been struggling to find a skin tone  that suited my style and budget when I ran across these on the CraftingAbility website. I already had the set of Memory System Markers and loved the tips on those… so when I saw that Zig had alcohol markers with the same  fine tip, I grabbed some to try.

The brush tip on the  Zig Kurecolors isn’t like most brush tips I have tried, it’s a bit fatter, rounder and and not so stiff and I love it.  Add in the fab fine tip and … the fact I finally FINALLY found my color. SOLD !!!!

Kurecolor_fine_brush_Dual_Tip_CNKC2200_731_pale_beige_details
I am not a huge fan of pinky/orange faces… it reminds me too much of girls who can’t find the right foundation makeup.  Just personal preference, each to their own.  I picked up 3 pens to try and get a good skin combo and  the one I  absolutely can’t live without … Pale Beige #731.

Now Zig do two types of Zig Kurecolor….refillables, much like the Copic, Spectrum etc… and one that is not marketed as refillable.. but TOTALLY is and really would be another great selling point if they were marketed as such.  The pens are slimline, so won’t hold as much ink as the ones marketed as refillable.. but they are super quick and easy to fill, so I am not worried about that at all.

No replacement tips for these ones.. since they aren’t marketed as refillable, however that is not to say that the replacement tips wouldn’t work in these, I just haven’t had any to try… but you know I will  give it a shot when I do lol.  But they do come with my two favorite tips and so far, I have had no need to replace them anyway and I am not the most delicate of people when it comes to markers.

Zig seem to have very durable tips that have held up to my scribbling and Cricut Explore perfectly.  They also play nicely with other alcohol markers I have and I am definitely one to mix and match my pens.  So if you have other alcohol pens, but just can’t find the right skintones for your tastes, or feel like you are missing some colors you would like.. or you really just need different tips..check these out.

Me, as soon as I can, I’ll be  buying every single one of them lol.  I just have to decide between the dual tip refillables and these Manga pens I currently have…and really like.

The Refillable version comes in two versions of dual tip.. the twin and twin ‘s’ .   I believe all Kurecolors come in the entire color range, but don’t quote me on that.

The Twin pens ( twin and twin’s’ ) also have replacement tips which can be purchases in packs of 10.  Please check the details on these as not all tips can be used on both pens .  I’m hoping to get my hands on some of these myself soon to try, and if and when I do… I’ll be sure to let you all know.  One of these, not sure which model yet, will be available on special order for anyone interested..( 10 days or less) I’ll let you all know as soon as they are listed, or you can sign up for their newsletter. Because I’ll be grabbing some myself to play with 🙂

and then of course there are the refills… 25ml in whatever colors  you need.  If you fall in love with the 731 like I did, I highly recommend you buy these in multiples ..lol I can tell you it’s hell when you run out and have to wait for refills.  I have 3 now and happy as a clam. I am soo not running out of that color again lol. Refills come in single color, or sets ..I believe it’s sets of 10, or 12 to correspond with the pen sets.





The color range is not as vast as Copic, but with 136 pens in the range ( 135 colors and a blender pen),  plus tip blending capabilities….there is more than enough color variety for most peoples needs …and budgets.   I just got my mits on a set of the Hair and muted tones manga pens… so  expect to see projects  and a review of those soon too.


I think I read somewhere that these inks are also suitable for paint guns.. so I’ll be giving that a shot too. I know my other alcohol inks worked in it.
