❤{MAMBI + EC = Awesome!}❤

MAMBI & Epiphany Crafts are bringing you some fabulous inspiration this week!

I’m sharing this mini album that I did of Paddy & Mack! It was their first day back to school…it’s a celebration of how awesome they are!

MAMBI:EPC 1, Shannon M.

I gathered a whole bunch of MAMBI and some of my favorite Epiphany Crafts tools, like the Heart 25.

You can create really great borders, just by using your tools.

MAMBI:EPC 2, Shannon M.

They also make really good backers.

Or a striking embellishment if you use a contrasting color.

MAMBI:EPC 5, Shannon M.

I really love the Epiphany Crafts Metal Charms too!

 

MAMBI:EPC 6, Shannon M.

Here’s each page in the album, MAMBI’s Pocket Pages, Clear Stickers in Black and 8X8 Scrapbook Kits made this mini so much fun to create!

MAMBI:EPC 7, Shannon M.

Here’s the border I mentioned earlier, it’s perfect and simple. It compliments the 4X6 quote as well!

The clear black stickers are awesome for sticking right on top of your photos! Don’t be afraid to try it!

Epiphany Crafts and MAMBI team up…

Hello everyone! It’s Me & My Big Ideas Week!

Diana here today sharing a TON of projects I created!

We have teamed up with MAMBI (Me and My Big Ideas) and boy, did they ever send a lot of products for us to play with!! I literally didn’t know where to start!!  LOL!!

The first thing I decided to create was cards!  I used cards from MAMBI’s “Cards in an Instant” pack, MAMBI Pocket Pages “Themed Cards”, MAMBI puffy stickers, MAMBI sticker borders and my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Heart 25, Round 14 and Chevron tools and bubble caps.

DSCN9512

You can use the cards just as they are, or you can dress them up a bit by adding different patterned papers to them.  Above I added some MAMBI yellow polka-dot paper to the bottom of this card.

The Epiphany Crafts bubble caps are perfect for creating embellishments that not only add dimension to your project, but the also magnify a little to make any pattern underneath pop even more!  I wanted to use little flower stickers on one of my cards, so I stuck the stickers onto the paper and used my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 14 tool and bubble caps and created my embellishments.

Look how the little flowers pop off the card!

I also created little flowers on my second card using my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 14 and bubble caps again and then fussy cut some leaves to place behind the embellishment.

On the next couple of cards, I used the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Heart 25 and bubble caps creating a set of Valentine cards.

DSCN9625 - Copy
I added some Stickles to the words “i love you”.

And here are all of the cards that I created!!

For my next project, I created a 12×12 layout.  We were sent wonderful MAMBI Pocket Pages “Themed Cards” and since I don’t do pocket type scrapbook pages, I created a 12×12 layout using the cards as my background!

DSCN9631 - Copy
The only other items I used on this page were MAMBI puffy stickers and clear stickers and my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Chevron tool and bubble caps!

Lastly, working again with the MAMBI Pocket Pages “Themed Cards”, I created a little mini album.

DSCN9635 - Copy

This album was incredibly easy to make, just adhering cards of the same size back to back.  To create some interest, I incorporated cards of different sizes. I also added a page of vellum and added some patterned paper to the back of one of the cards.

DSCN9637 - Copy
MAMBI sent us some word stickers and clear stickers that worked perfectly to embellish this album and make tabs with.

DSCN9641 - Copy
I also created some tabs for the album using my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 25 and bubble caps.

DSCN9638 - Copy
I created two Round 25 embellishments.  On one side of the page, I placed one of the embellishments just over the edge and then I flipped the page over and adhered the second embellishment to the back of the first one.

DSCN9639 - Copy
And if you are creating an album that has no pictures in it yet, as I did, use a coordinating card stock to create areas where the photos will go.   I also cut down some of the pocket pages cards and used them to double mat where the photos will go.  Make sure you leave enough room to journal too!

Then to finish my little album off, I created coordinating embellishments using my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 14 tool and bubble caps and placed the embellishments where the album needed a little something extra!

WHEW! So there you have it! All of my projects!  I really hope I have been able to inspire you just a little bit!

A Summer Mini

Hi Everyone! Sarah here to show you a mini album I made using a ton of Epiphany crafts goodness!! I’m so excited to be Guest Designing for Epiphany Crafts! I have loved these fabulous epoxy embellishments ever since a friend of mine first showed them to me!  Anyway, on to the mini! We went on a family trip to Kelowna BC this summer and I took so many pictures that I thought it would be a great excuse to make them into a mini album! I’ve had this Crate Paper album kickin around for a while, and I thought this would be perfect for these pictures!

For my title page I used the Shape Studio Tool Round 14 and some of my favorite washi tape to make some super cute custom embellies! I love making dimensional embellishments that coordinate with the papers  I’m using! It makes me smile, and smiling’s my favorite! haha!

I had to document the first thing we did when we got to the Okanagan because it’s never been done before in our family…haircuts in a salon! I’m a hairdresser, so I’ve always cut my boys hair at home…but I just got way too busy, so we stopped into a salon in Vernon and got them all spiffy looking again!

1stpage

 

I like using my tools to the fullest potential, and I love that you can use the Shape Studio Chevron 25 for more than just making super fun chevies! I used them on this page as photo corners and I love how they bring your eye to the picture of my baby slurping back his first freeze! lol He really loved it! Can you blame him?! lol

2ndpage

 

3rdpage

 

I am absolutely in LOVE with the Shape Studio Tool Heart 25! I think it’s one of my favourites!

 

4thpage

 

Watercolors are really in right now and I had some scraps that I had used on a different project with my watercolors and I thought it would be cool to use my Chevron 25 tool with them too…and I was right!!

5thpage

On this next page I thought I’d play around with some heat embossing and my Round 14 tool. I’m really happy with the way they turned out!

6thpage

 

I’ve been using the Chevron 25 tool so much I’m almost out of my bubble caps and I just got them!! They’re just so fun to play with!

The Round 14 bubble caps are super cute to top the center of a bow too!

I love this picture of my husband and Kieran getting the trailer ready to go at the end of our vacation! The heart 25 bubble cap is a nice simple addition to this page where I focused mainly on the picture.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my mini album! I had a blast making it! Especially since I got to use all these fabulous Epiphany Craft goodies! If I wasn’t hooked before, I definitely am now!!

Cheers!

Hello Smile

Hi everyone, Michelle here today with my first Guest DT post!!  I was so excited to be chosen as a guest DT for Epiphany Crafts, I own almost all of the tools…I love these things!!

Since this is summer fun week, I decided to use some recent photos of my son playing in the pool.  My son is 12 years old and does not like to get his photo taken (I’m sure most of you with teen boys can relate).  Well a few weeks ago he was being very cooperative and even giving me real smiles, not the usual “I have to force a smile for the camera” smile that he usually gives me!  LOL

 

Hello smile

 

I hand stitched the circles (which took me forever!!)  From there I embellished with bits and pieces all around the circles.  I used the Round 14 tool, Round 25 tool, and the Chevron tool.

Here are a few close ups:

I really love how versatile these tools are.  You can create any kind of embellishment you can imagine!

Thanks for stopping by!

School Locker Style to Make You Smile!

Hi there! This is Heather from Id & Ego Creations, and I am a guest designer for Epiphany Crafts today!

It’s that time of year – summer is nearing it’s end, and school will be starting soon. I started to reminisce about my days at school, and I thought about the fun, decorative things that are available now that no one had ever heard of back then. The fanciest thing I could do to personalize anything school-related was to cover my textbooks with paper bags and draw patterns and color them in with markers. Now there are super cool locker decorations available on the market, and I decided to design and make my own! If I could travel back in time, this is how I would have decorated my locker in Junior or Senior High School. I think my friends would’ve said, “Heather, your locker is like…totally awesome!” 

Back to Cool Locker Accessories Layout

I first started with my favorite color scheme – bright blues and greens. I printed my own patterns onto colored card stock, and collected other materials to add some interest and sparkle:  Shimmering linen card stock, glitter paper, crystal rhinestones, and various ribbons and strings in coordinating colors.

 

 

Back to Cool Locker Accessories Collage

Then, using the Chevron, Pennant 25, Round 14, and Flower 25 shape tools and embellishments, along with other craft punches, tools, products and adhesives I have purchased from Michaels over the years, I started to design my products! Clockwise from top left: Magnetic Mirror, Tassel Charm Garland, Magnetic Notepad, Bookmark, Shorthand Scalloped Magnets, Magnetic Pen/Pencil Cone, and Flower Bow Magnets.

I had so much fun using Epiphany Crafts’ tools and embellishments! They sure made it easy for me to add dimension and even more interest to the products I designed. I’m a little addicted now!

 

Thanks for taking time to visit, and I hope the rest of your summer is fabulous, and that your (or your kids’) lockers look just as fabulous when it’s time to go back to school!
