Crunching Leaves Layout

Hi everyone! Jeri here, with a fun way to use the Epiphany Round Tool.

I was crafting a scrapbook layout using this sketch.

Noticing there was a layer that had hole punches in, I thought I would take it up a notch and use the Epiphany Round Tool to add the circles, rather than punching them out.

I think these epoxy shapes had dimension, detail and a bit extra ‘leafy’ fun to the page.

I also added a few of the smaller round epoxy throughout the layout for more metallic detail.

Personalized Gift Giving

Hi everyone!!

Jeri here, with a fun way to make gift giving more personal.

I love hand-crafting my entire gift, from the gift itself to the wrapping and card. For this gift I am giving a unique bracelet to my niece for her birthday, with her name on it.

I made this darling little box to place it in, a cute little mini card, and finished it off with a metallic gold rosette.

The best part? Instead of adding a name tag, use your Epiphany Crafts shapes to add a name to the gift!

I used the circle tool, and a round stamp to center her name on the rosette.

College Survival Gift Card Holder

Kim Klinkovsky for Epiphany Crafts 8-2016
Hi everybody! Kim here up on the Blog for Back to School Week. As a new school year begins I’m seeing a lot of projects focused on grade school kids. Which is fun and great, as I too, have three boys still in grade school and I love seeing new ideas. But, what about our college bound kids? My oldest graduated college a couple years ago and just finished medical training, but in those first few years of college we would send her gift cards to help her “survive” college. Whether it’s for emergency study snacks, a smoothie, or a new outfit, she had a few extra dollars to take a break and treat herself. So, I created a little gift card holder to share with you all, that reminded me of those college “survival” days. And maybe you can surprise your college bound kids too!

I started with this die cut that already has the shape and pocket for the gift card holder and I used this wonderful chalkboard alphabet patterned paper as my base. Fold the pocket at the bottom and edges, and adhere the sides to the base. Instant pocket! Fold in half and again at the top where it slides into a pre-cut slit to close. Cut a piece of red gingham ribbon and wrap around the card, but not too tight, so you can slip it on and off to get to the gift card goodies inside.

Next I punched out some old fashioned alphabet letters from patterned paper to create my daughters initials to make it even more personalized and punched the perfect apple too! I placed them in the Epiphany punches, added epoxie shapes to create my own embellishments, and adhered to the front of the gift card holder. And don’t forget to include the gift cards inside for your student or makes for a great teacher gift too!

I can’t say enough good things about these punches. They are so fun and make every project more personal to the recipient and to your projects. Knowing I can punch out and create anything with these tools is such a joy for me and I hope you find that out too! Until next time…enjoy your back to school days! ~Kim

back to school!

hi there lindsay here!  i’m not going to lie it was good sending the kids back to school, lol! i mean i do miss the lazy mornings and staying in p.j.’s stuff but it always feels good to get back into a routine and schedule. i of course took back to school pictures on the 1st day and my project today is a layout with one of my iphone pictures from that morning.

i started on my phone with the picture and my most favorite app rhonna designs. if you don’t have it you need it trust me! its the best app out there for so many reasons plus its fun and useful! i edited my photo and then had it printed as a 5×7.

i picked some paper and decided to try the new minc black foil from heidi swapp. painted some minc spray on my background let it dry and ran it through my minc. i had already decided to make a distressed kinda layout. i matted my photo with white cardstock and roughed up the edges and inked them.

then i stapled a piece of dotted vellum behind it. i glued a piece of cardboard on the back of the layered photo to make it stand out then glued it to my layout. next i punched out white glitter chevron pieces with the chevron tool. my favorite way to get glittered embellishments with epiphany crafts tools is to use the glitter washi tape from heidi swapp. its thin enough to punch out easily and flat enough to use with bubble caps but still so sparkly. plus its already sticky on the back so it makes an automatic sticker.

i used the chevron embellishments on the top and bottom and then lined them a little with a black pen and wrote each of my kids grade under the point.

i then used a brush pen to write back and school on the layout. lastly i made a bubble cap with the ticket tool and bubble caps with the “to” written on it.

i love how epiphany tools make your project look so perfect with little effort and i can make my embellishments match whatever design/theme i’m going for on my projects!
