PTI Swatchbook

I saw Nichole's color play flip book a few months ago, and finally got around to making one of my own. I love it! It's so easy to see how certain colors look with each other now, rather than scrounging around for scraps to compare!
Here's the cover:
Side view (all the pretty colors!):

Page 1: I punched out 3/4" circles and labeled them
with the corresponding Copic matches:

And one of the hundreds/thousands of possible color combos:
Isn't it pretty? I just love all these colors!
Now, I sent one to my friends Lisa and Jackie, so go see how they decorated theirs!

For $10 (US), this is what your bound book includes:

- a fingerprint-resistant clear acetate cover
- 3 sheets of white cardstock (all blank, one for you to personalize as a cover)
- all of PTI's perfect match cardstock, plus soft stone
- a kraft back cover
- free shipping
I am happy to ship international, too!

Any questions or want to order? Email me: becky@lakeshorestamper.com and I'll get back to you as quickly as I can.

What a great idea! I'm always trying to find scraps of paper to hold next to each other...it would be fantastic to have all colors in one place!
