A Halloween Wedding

Eeeeek! It’s almost Halloween!! I’m so excited!! Sarah here to share a layout I made of the guests at our wedding! 10 years ago on Halloween, my husband and I got married. We had a traditional ceremony, but for the reception, there was a dress code

;)
Costumes only! It was so much fun!! I have so many pictures from that day that it’s hard to narrow them down, but I thought I’d just find a few that stood out and make a fun Halloween layout with them!

I used the Round 14 bubble caps on their own on this layout. They kind of reminded me of crystal balls and I think the effect goes really perfectly on a spooky Halloween layout!

I also used the Pennant Shape Studio Tool (which just so happens to be the tool of the month!!) on the top corner to create a fun little focal point to balance out the little witch silhouette on the opposite corner

;)

I hope you’re as excited about Halloween coming as I am!! Do you still dress up? I do, but I have to admit that now that I have 4 kids, getting their costumes on seems to be all the dress up I can handle! lol

★{This is Halloween! This is Halloween!}★

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

I

Halloween…if you couldn’t tell.

I was beyond happy to help Epiphany Crafts ring in Halloween Week! I created a set of four cards using various Epiphany Crafts tools and Accessories! You’ll find the Heart 25 tool, Pennant 25 tool (Psssst! It’s also the TOOL OF THE MONTH!), Round 14 tool and Star 25 tool.

Check out the shot here of all four cards and I’ll give you a close up of some of the details too!

Here’s a few close ups of the cards. You’ll see that I used Bubble Caps, punched holes in these Bubble Caps, used partial punches of the shapes for a cute embellishment and used foam dots for dimension having the Epiphany Crafts pop off the page!

It’s getting spooky at Epiphany Crafts…

Hey everyone! It’s Diana here with you today and we’re getting spooky at Epiphany Crafts!!!

I don’t know about you, but I’m always gathering inspiration from Pinterest.  While looking around not long ago, I spotted a few different Halloween cards that I thought were cute!! So, I decided to combine a couple of them together.

Below are the steps to make these cards!

DSCN0153 - Copy
Go through your stash of pre-made cards or make some from card stock that measure 4″ X 5.5″.

DSCN0145
Cut a piece of  subtle-patterned black paper or a piece of black card stock to 3.5″ X 5″.

Mount this piece of black paper onto a bright piece of plain card stock or another subtle-patterned bright paper leaving a very slight border.

DSCN0147

DSCN0148
Adhere this to the card just slightly askew.

Next make your “eyes” using your Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 14 and coordinating Round 14 Bubble Caps.

Using a hole punch (I used my Crop-a-Dile), make the “pupils” of your eyes using black card stock.

DSCN0149
Place the “pupils” on top of white card stock, add the Round 14 bubble cap and punch! Viola!! Eyes!!

DSCN0150
Add washi tape to the card using a colour that co-ordinates with your bright background paper, leaving some to hang over the edges and making sure you leave room for the “eyes” to peek out.

DSCN0151
Adhere your “eyes” using adhesive of your choice.

Add a little Halloween salutation to your card, ink all the edges in black and you’re done!!

DSCN0155 - Copy

DSCN0154 - Copy
And since I was having so much fun playing, I decided I would make a really quick necklace!! This would be the perfect craft for a little girls birthday party!!

Grab some ribbon that you may have around the house and your Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Hexagon 25 and silver hexagon charm settings

DSCN0159
Cut the ribbon to about 24″.  This will give you a shorter necklace, or you can tie it tighter and wear it as a choker.  Feed one end of the ribbon through the loop on the charm and then tie a knot at each end of the ribbon to give it a more finished look.

Next pick an image you want to use in your charm!  Because things are so spooky around here, I chose an image of a Halloween cupcake.  Also this image coordinated well with the ribbon I was using!

Once you’ve made your piece for your charm setting, adhere it into your setting using an adhesive of your choice.

Mummy Card & Candy Set

mummycardjoyslife

Are you feeling just a little creeped out seeing all those spiders?  I have to admit that while I was working with the ribbon and making the spider pendant, I started to feel that icky sensation that something was walking on me.  Nothing was.  Thank you for that Halloween moment you yucky little creatures! I think the spider pendant is the perfect accent for really pulling off the creepy spider effect.  Don’t you?  I created it using Epiphany Crafts’ Shape Studio Round 14.  I like how he’s climbing up his web.  Read on and I’ll tell you how to make it!

mummycutboss

I used the Mummy card (66069) and Mummy popcorn box (65609) .svg files from the Silhouette Store and cut them out using my Silhouette Cameo.  I’m using cardstock from Core’dinations Neutrals.  Next, I embossed the mummy pieces using the Cut n’ Boss machine along with the Woodgrain Cottage embossing folder by Teresa Collins.  I like how that pattern accentuated the mummy wrappings.

xyroncore

I sanded the embossed mummies to reveal a lighter color paper.  Next, I employed my Xyron machines to help me stick all the little pieces together.

Time to embellish!  I LOVE making things with Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio tools!  I’m using the Oval and Round 14 Shape Studio tools along with the Bubble Caps Oval 25 and the Bubble Caps Round 14.  They’re so simple to use!  Just place the Shape Studio tool over whatever you want to punch out.  Before you punch, you can add a matching bubble cap.  Shut the top and punch.  Simple as store bought pie.  Pie…yum…anyway…

spiderclose

I punched out an additional round piece of paper for the back of my spider pendant.  Between the two pieces, I added some Glossy Accents (to act as an adhesive and because it dries clear) and a piece of black thread.  Hold for a few seconds for everything to set.  Voila!  A spider hanging by a thread…literally.  LOL!

The oval bubble cap fits right into this pretty oval setting.  If you have a very thin ribbon like I’m using, you can even run it through the sides of the oval setting and create embellishments like this or even a necklace!  What?!  Yes.  True story.  The cool factor is limitless.

When I’m not here, you can find me at JoysLife.com. Have a crafty fall y’all!

pretty pages

hi there Lindsay here!
we aren’t real big Halloween people at my house so i wasn’t quite sure what i was going to do for this weeks projects…but i figured it out and was inspired by the tool of the month the pennant tool.

the first page is from our church’s trunk or treating event last year. i had a an idea to turn our van into Cinderellas carriage, complete with a little mouse!
i wanted the pennants to be the main focus of the page so i made a big pennant, added some small pennants and a tissue paper fringe garland which made the perfect thing to make my October pennant banner to stand out!

to make the October banner i stamped each letter on my paper then cut them apart and used the pennant tool and bubble caps to complete them.

the second page is my daughters kindergarten costume parade. she was a cute nerd with style lol. i used a project life card embellished with the round 25 tool and some stickers, stamps and ribbon for the title.

for the bubble cap i used some stickles to outline the diamond shape and then i colored around the diamond with a colored pencil. waited for the stickles to dry then punched it with the round 25 tool and bubble cap. i love how the stickles worked so perfectly with the bubble caps because its not super 3d when it dries like glitter is.

hope something inspired you!
