out of the box & on my mantle…

this week’s theme was to use the awesome epiphany crafts tools on something that was not scrapbooking. so i found myself at the target one spot again with back to school goodies and where i live we are getting ready to go back. (thank goodness, lol) i picked up a chalkboard, clothespins, paper bags, pencil milk cartons and pencils. then i stopped by the school supply section and grabbed one of heidi swapps mini marquee’s and some rub ons.


went home and put everything on my desk when i got home and stared at. after a few days i decided to to a back to school countdown on my mantle. this is how it turned out…

back to school

i wrote the countdown on the chalkboard and added some pennets with the pennet tool and bubble caps. on top of the bubble caps i added some gold star rub ons ( normally i put them under the bubble cap but i thought i would mix things up and see how it turned out.

the milk cartons i put together and added epiphany crafts round 25 bubble caps and rhinestone charms.

hanging on the mantle are the paper bags i got with the clothespins, i added some epiphany crafts chevron tool and bubble caps on some of the bags to point to the grades some of my kids are going into.

lastly i made some cute pencil charms with my epiphany crafts round 14 tool, bubble caps and charms. i spray painted the charms gold then added a stamped bubble cap, a rub on bubble cap and some twine to tie them on the pencils.

Hey everyone Crystal  here to share a project I made using the heart 25 tool, heart 25 bubble caps and the heart 25 charm settings.

I’m more of a scrapbook layout kind of gal but it is fun to try and think outside of the box and create projects which are not flat. I love having flowers around the house it just makes everyday more cheerful. I try to buy myself flowers a couple times a month. I think this project will look great on my mantle all year but especially for valentines day.

I took an empty wine bottle wrapped twine around it. I found some pretty pattern paper to use with the bubble caps and attached them to the metal charm hearts. I took my charms and attached them with some pink twine I also added a little key charm. I used a needle and thread to attach a butterfly. Lastly to make it look more finished I added the red and white ribbon around the bottle.

Here is a close up of my project:


I hope I have inspired you to create something other then a layout with your Epiphany Crafts Tools.


Hello Baby {set}

Raechelle here sharing some more baby week inspiration with you.

I created a card and a gift box and went a little crazy (OK- maybe more than a little) with the Round 14 tool and Round 14 Bubble Caps. (But doesn’t the end result look wonderful!?)

Life is a Journey Travel With Me – Fleur’s Travel Project

This summer to document my travels I am using a Midori style book and I created some notebooks to go inside. I bought this cute fabric Fauxdori from CakePaperie on Etsy and made some fun charms for it using the Epiphany Crafts Round 14 and 25 tools and the coordinating charms.




I also created a midori sized notebook with plain paper to add some photographs and other items.


I also found some notebooks at Michaels that fit inside so I recovered them with the same collection from Crate paper and added some fun embellishments with the Epiphany Crafts Chevron 25 and Round 14 tools and coordinating Bubblecaps.


I can’t wait to use this pretty book to document my summer travels.

Cape York Roadtrip|Travel Week|Tarrah McLean

Hi there Epiphany Crafts fans!

It’s Tarrah back with you today to share a layout with you for travel week!

Cape York Roadtrip

A couple of years ago my husband and our eldest son went on a huge

roadtrip with some friends to the very Northern tip of Australia….

of course they had to get evidence that they actually got right to the tip!

Cape York Roadtrip Detail

I have used the round 25 tool with the round bubble caps and the heart 25 tool

with the heart bubble caps to create embellishments that compliment my travel themed layout….
