Christening Layout

Hello Everyone,

   Hope everyone is having a great day! I am so far behind on my scrapbooking it's not even funny, lol! I went into a store in El Paso, TX called Pizazz, and found some really pretty Christening paper so I picked some up along with some Christening stickers, and I made a long over due layout for one of my daughter's Christening.

  The things I used were two Christening pages by Trim Designs, Inc., a pack of Christening stickers, some flowers, buttons, coordinating cardstock, and a piece of ribbon. I also used my Cricut to make my daughter's name. I forgot to take a picture before I put it all together so I don't have a pic of my supplies, sorry, I'll try to remember for next time.

  I hope you enjoyed my layouts and that they inspire you to create your own! Have an awesome day and happy crafting!!!

Charm Braclet

Hello Everyone,
   Hope everyone is having a wonderful day today! So far my day is great! Today I have a simple jewelry craft!

   The things I used for this Charm Bracelet are: a Stainless Steel bracelet and beads from Wal-Mart, to make the picture charms I used my Epiphany Crafts Square 25 tool, along with the epoxy covers and two double sided charms. My daughters pictures are on one side and their names and birthdays are on the other.

  I am also, going to include a couple of pics on using the Epiphany Crafts Tools, so you can see how easy it is to use it. First you chose a picture or design you want and place it under the view finder. Then you place the Epoxy directly onto the image.

   This one is the new 2.0 model so I don't have to place the insert in, so with that said next you close the lid and press down firmly.

      After that you lift the lid, remove the extra paper, and remove your epoxy :) You can place it on a card, scrapbook page, or place it on a charm.

    It took me maybe 30 minutes to make this bracelet. Having my Epiphany Crafts Tools makes it so easy to make epoxies, and they have so many different shapes and sizes. The picture below is just a pic of all the stuff I used to make the charm bracelet. Hope you enjoyed it and you all have a great day! Happy crafting!!

Disneyland Scrapbook Page

Hello, Everyone!!!

   This is my Third Scrapbook page I've ever made. I don't like complicated things so my work is simple. I hope you like it.

  My scrapbook page is from a trip to Disneyland we took back in 09 after my husband came home from a 15 month deployment to Iraq, but I just recently had time to make the page. For the paper I used "the Paper Studio: Fairytale Princess" paper pack. I also used the stamp set Princess Wings from Close to My Heart along with Moonstruck ink and Silver embossing powder also from CTMH".  I also used "Stampabilities Embossing Ink". The last tool I used was Epiphany Crafts Round 25 tool to make the Princess Epoxies for the Castle windows. I had a picture with the Princesses, and the tool did the rest :) Below is a pic of the things I used. I love all my tools!!

  I hope you enjoy my post and it inspires you to check out Close To My Heart, Epiphany Crafts, and the Paper Studio, if you are not familiar with them! Happy crafting everyone!!
