Whimsical Twist Challenge

Hi Everyone!! Happy Monday!!! I have a fun layout to share with you today that is up over on the Whimsical Twist blog for our new challenge!!

Our challenge this time is all about photo size!! The most common photo size, the most cameras shoot in, is 4x6...so we challenge you to step out of the box and scrap those photos in different sizes. Be it a large shot or a smaller instagram shot...step out of that 4x6 box!!

Here is the layout I put together for this challenge:

Pinterest Inspired with Epiphany Crafts

Hi all! Back again to share this adorable holiday project with you. Our assignment for this week was to use an image on Pinterest for inspiration. I LOVED all of the stars made out of rulers that I kept seeing...like this one:

Why wait till Christmas, I am seeing stars for 4th of July!
I knew I had to make one! So I put together my own version and used my shape studio tools to embellish and make a wonderful addition to our Christmas décor!

We R Harvest Collection Canvas

Hi all!! Happy Hump Day! :) Today I wanted to hop on and share with you a project I made using the Harvest Collection from We R Memory Keepers. I really love this collection, and how it has some of the traditional fall colors with the browns, yellows, and oranges, but this brings in these pops of blue. The patterns are gorgeous too, and I really wanted to create something that I could use as many as possible.

I had seen this image on Pinterest, and really loved the wreath on the canvas.

So I dug out a burlap canvas, and put my Cameo to work. Here is my finished canvas:

I simply layered the cut leaves into a wreath, added in some wood veneer, and wood grain sequins. Then added a sentiment banner using the border strips paper in the Harvest 6x6 pad.

You can view the full Harvest collection here, and make sure and check out the We R Memory Keepers blog, for lots more inspiration using the Harvest Collection!
Have a great day, and take time to create something you love!
