Wedding Card

"We do not remember days, we remember moments", I think it's a fitting quote for a wedding card!

I was asked to make a wedding card, I thought it would be safe to go with silver and black, would match any wedding color theme...I hope! Decorated the card a little bit, and the part that says "congratulations" has a little flap that will hold money or a gift card! Hope she likes it!

Miss you

I miss making cards! So again when a friend asked me to make her a few for her business, how can I refuse! I just don't make cards as much anymore because I don't have any card group ladies, only scrapbooking! And I really don't find the time OR should I say make the time to make any for no reason! She wanted some "we miss you" cards. I found these layouts from Vicki Wizniuk a fellow CTMH'er, love her work!

Here's what I used for this card:

March scrapbooking

Sorry, I am not the best photographer! Maybe that's on my list of new things to learn!

This heart says "I just love you to pieces" stamped on it.

It's hard to see but this heart says "love (heart) always" stamped on it, and it's completely covered in liquid glass, hence why it's so shiny!

Well it's that time again! This is the layout I picked for March thinking the ladies can use it for a family layout...for kids...for Valentine's day...whatever you love! But's not too girlie :O) At least I hope it's not! The actual photos will be where you see the twilight squares and rectangles...I just needed to put something on there to give them and idea of where photos can be. Of course the 5X7 photo on the first page can be put into two smaller photos as well...whatever works!

Here's what I used in the layout:

Imagine page 68-69
Veranda L2 paper pack X 7119B
In my heart D1245
February word puzzle D1269
All my heart D1194
Hearthrob D1309
Dimensional elements hearts Z1278
sparkles Z1104
parchment ink pad Z2142
cocoa ink pad Z2114
tulip ink pad Z2166
tulip marker Z2366
black marker Z293
photo hangers Z293
liquid glass Z279
twill ribbon Z1099

EPIPHANIE giveaway...I love contests!

We've been overwhelmed by all the love you've been sending. We think it's our turn to send a little back. So....






Your name will be entered based on the number of points you earn. Each point is worth one entry. And you may earn points by doing any of the following activities:

Worth 1 POINT each:

- Tweet about this contest or about Epiphanie in your Twitter status.

- Post about this contest or about Epiphanie in your Facebook status.

- Make a donation to the charity of your choice. If you don't have one, we love Citizen Effect and Joy For Haiti. This is on the honor system. But remember what you do comes back to you, so be honest! :)

*Note: You may repeat the same task, but it will NOT increase the number of points earned. In other words, you can tweet ten times about us, but it will still only be worth one point= one entry. (plus you might annoy your friends :))

Worth 10 POINTS each:

- Purchase an Epiphanie Bag before midnight (CST) on March 31st.

- Make a creative video or take a funny photograph about how much you love Epiphanie bags. Be aware that we will probably post it on our blog and/or on our facebook fan page.

Afterwards, email us at Include your name and your total number of entries in the subject heading. In the body of your email, type a list of everything you completed including the verifiable links.



What if I already purchased a bag and/or completed some of the above tasks without even being tempted by a killer prize?

Then you are among our favorite people! :) So don't worry, just email us with any of the above task(s) that you've completed along with your order number. We will enter you accordingly. BUT YOU MUST EMAIL US WITH YOUR ENTRIES. PREVIOUS AND CURRENT ORDERS FOR MARCH WILL NOT BE AUTOMATICALLY ENTERED. IN OTHER WORDS, YOU HAVE TO PLAY TO WIN. :)

How will you pick the winner?

The winner will be selected using an online random number generator; and announced on the Epiphanie blog by April 2nd, 2010.

Why did you pick a gift card for Southwest as the other choice for a prize?

Because Epiphanie is about exploring, traveling, and living a life more inspired. AND we think it might be nice to have a vacation to go along with your sassy new camera bag! We chose Southwest simply because they are our favorite airline. Southwest did not solicit our opinion. Epiphanie is not affiliated with Southwest, and Southwest is not sponsoring this contest in any way whatsoever.
