Hi everybody! Sorry I've been a bit out of touch this month. It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my dear sister who lost her battle with breast cancer. I will miss her yesterday, today, forever, and always. She was a mother of twins too, a very special bond we both shared; a very talented graphic designer and an avid card maker; and she just loved the craft world.

Happy Holidays everybody! Don't show up empty handed to all those holiday or New Years parties you will be attending this week or next. You can never go wrong with a bottle (or two) of sparkling cider, sparkling juice, or a favorite wine, of course too! Give the gift of giving with these special handmade bottle tags and your Hostess will appreciate it. And with Epiphany Crafts Tools you too can personalize any tag for any occasion. The possibilities are endless.
I hope I've inspired you to get out your punches, pretty papers, stickers, and create something awesome. Cheers!
From our house to yours, I am so thankful you follow my crafty adventures...Happy Holidays! ~Kim and family
Happy December everybody! Only 24 days until Christmas. Can you believe it? Where did the year go? Yikes! So much to do...gotta get busy. And one of my holiday traditions is to make lots of special holiday tags to have ready for present wrapping in the coming weeks. And this year I used Epiphany Crafts Tools to make them super special, one of a kind, fast and easy, even the kids can help too! And NO stamping, but you could. Maybe a little to/from stamped on the back or on frosty's lower half.
Happy Birthday, Mom! We had a lovely special lunch just me, my little sister, and our parents. It's never just the four of us, with no kids and no husbands. It's usually the fourteen of us or more. lol. And my mom finally attended her first craft show and even won some free products too! A very fun day and lots of laughs with my sister too (Riley stamps are a hoot).
And as some of you may or may not know, this time of year, I make A LOT of family birthday cards (like nine, before I start Christmas cards) and Fall themes are my absolute favorite, but this year I wanted to make something different and try some different products and techniques.

Red, White, Blue and "Thinking of You"...as I'm dreaming of a sandy beach, waves crashing on the rocks, the warm sunshine on my face, and a fruity drink. Oh! And lighthouses too! I just love them. Don't you? Which one is your favorite? They remind me of family vacations and you can feel all that history when you're standing in front of them. Which say all American to me and I love sharing that history with my kids. So I wanted this card to be red, white, and blue in all it's patriotic glory. And this Eat Cake Graphics lighthouse stamp goes perfect with this Graphic 45 nautical paper collection. Don't you think?

I made a quick St. Patrick's Day card for my twin niece and nephew's to commemorate their first green holiday! Very simple card with shamrock washi tape, American Crafts ribbon, a heart punch, gems, and a pipe cleaner. Voila!
I punched out six heart punches: three from solid green cardstock and three from a printed green paper. I chose a paper that had an embossed raised sparkle to it, so I wouldn't need to add any stickles glitter glue.
Adhere the solid green heart punches in a shamrock shape. Fold the printed heart punches in half, then apply a thin line of adhesive and attach directly on top of the solid green heart punches. Pinch for a 3D effect. Roll up a pipe cleaner and attach with glue dots. Add a couple gems and you have a quick and simple card.
