I found this really cute owl stamp at Michales for just $1! Also the cute orange bird cage that you can kind of see in the corner was $1! I couldn't wait to use the stamp so I made a few cards and for his tummy I used the Button Studio from Epiphany Crafts and added wiggly eyes, love how cute he turned out.

Fun And Games

I can not get enough of the Epiphany Crafts epoxies...nice, thick, and oh so shiny!!!They are so much fun to play with I decided to make another tic-tac-toe game :) The fun papers are Heidi Grace-Regan's Closet. I used the Button Studio to make the center of the flowers. Love how easy it is to make matching embellishments!

How to make Epoxy Charms

These are quick, easy, and oh so cute!!!! First you need to find some patterned paper with small images or you could also use small rubber stamps. I used a little of both. Rubons, doodling, or small stickers would work too!
Put the image in the Shape Studio Tool from Epiphany Crafts, top with a bubble cap, put the spacer in, close the lid and press, then easy to use!
Last just use strong glue dots to put it on a disc charm.
Have fun!

Hi :)

Always a sentiment you can use! There is an online crop atFiskateersthis weekend. One of the challenges was to use the colors Turquoise & Brown. I can't distinguish red from orange, purple from black so I am wondering if this paper is really the color I need when I remember I have some natural turquoise beads so I pulled them out and it matched perfectly! For the sentiment I stamped hi and used the shape studio to make a cute charm.

Embossed Charms

One of the challenges this month at ACP is to emboss and use 3 charms. Leah has detailed instructions here: Challenge #2. Basically you smash your charm into ink and pour embossing powder over it :) I did that with my butterfly. I wanted the bird to be different colors so I used an embossing pen on him and did each color separately. On the nest I only embossed the eggs. It was fun! I will get a photo of my finished project hopefully tomorrow.

David's favorite shirts all have skulls on them! He was very happy when we found a pair of jeans with skulls on them too :)

On my layout I wanted the heart button to be soild gray but didn't want to punch a hole in another sheet of paper for just one button so I figured out where I wanted to put the pictures then used a craft knife to cut out a small square. Being small I needed a way to get it in and out of the Button Studio Tool so I taped it to a small strip of paper..worked like a charm!!! And speaking of charms I made a super cute one with the Shape Studio Tool and placed it on round word charm from ACP.
