Epiphany Crafts

I was again honored this week when I was selected to join the Design Team for Epiphany Crafts!!! I will admit that I wasnt aware of the tools that they manufacture until I saw the call for their Design Team.....and once I found out what they were all about I was totally excited!!! Custom buttons and epoxy's in several shapes....oh my!!! Check out the info from the site:

Epiphany Crafts creates innovative products for the craft industry. Two new product lines, the EC Shape Studio and EC Button Studio, allow you to create beautifully crafted embellishments in just three easy steps. Simply position your desired design into the Studio tool, add the self-adhesive button or shape, then just close the lid and press. The result is a one of a kind embellishment that will match your project perfectly.

Little Feet Designs

I was honored to be asked by Janet Carr to join her Creative Team for Little Feet Designs. Her digital kits are amazing and I have already enjoyed using one of them :)

This layout was done using the Where I Long to Be - Serenity of the Cape

All of her kits are available at For The Luv of Art and I highly recommend you check them out....and as an added bonus there are even some freebies!!

Get your Mist on by Julie (me):
Welcome Summer!!!!
No June Gloom this morning....or I slept through it!
Summer for us is all about water, the beach, the pool, the hose when the plants are suppose to get watered and instead everything else does. Anyway I thought I would challenge you to use your mists, sprays, etc on a layout! Be creative, mix them, mask them, do what you do and share with us!

I did a layout using a mask with the sprays:

From Lisa - Summer Colors Challenge
Happy Saturday ladies!!!!!!!!!!!

I love a good a color challenge - I am thinking Yellow for the sun and blue for water and white for big puffy clouds

So - create a layout with these colors included White/Yellow/Blue

From Shelly: Summer/Sunshine Song Title Challenge
I love songs about summer. When certain songs come on the radio, I open the windows and the sunroof and sing at the top of my lungs. My challenge to you is to use a song with the word sunshine or summer as your layout title (or card sentiment for you card makers!) To help you out, I have compiled a list of my favorite summer songs – use one of these or one of your own favorites.

Upload your layout to the the Splash into Summer Crop catagory in the gallery and then link it back to this thread!

A Surprise Cyber Crop at Treasured Scrapbooking!!!

Is starting tomorrow - Saturday and we would love to see some new faces.....and some old too :)

this is what Erin has to say:

I think it's time to celebrate! SOOOOOOOO, let's Spring Into Summer, Splash Into Summer, or Charge Stubbornly Into Summer!!!!! The weather here is just awful, we've only had a couple of sunny days, but I'm going to charge stubbornly ahead anyway!

I am holding a SURPRISE CYBERCROP starting tomorrow! There will be prizes and games and challenges!

The first challenge starts RIGHT NOW, though!

Go find some of your online scrappy friends who don't already hang out here and invite them to come play with us! I will do a prize drawing for the people who bring in some new members to the party! If the person was previously registered but wandered off, that's fine too. I just want a lot of people at this party. Smile

The crop will go until next Sunday night, most of the festivities will occur during the weekend, but I might throw some surprises in here and there, and some quick challenges as well.

So, go get your shorts and sunglasses and flip flops! It's time to PARTY!!!!!!!
