We have had such a great time this week and we hope you have too, during our team up with Epiphany Crafts. We had a group of our Bella designers that mixed Epiphany Crafts fun punches, epoxy shapes, and charms into our projects. And the Epiphany Crafts designers were busy mixing Bella's collections and embellishments into their projects. We have a few last projects to leave you with, so let's get started.
“XOXO” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I just adore these sweet ladybugs (from Bella's Sunshine & Happiness Collection)! I cut apart the border with these on them, and used them in my Square Shape Studio from Epiphany Crafts! For the center one, I mounted it on a Square Silver Charm Setting and then added a small white bow.
Sunshine & Happiness: Happy Clouds, Borders, Alpha+Bits Stickers
“Let Forever Begin” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
I started by adding a feather and then layering on a couple of Love & Marriage Cute Cuts and Ciao Chip Wedding Icons. For the embellishments, I added a white bow with a Crochet Flower and dangled a custom charm that I created using the Epiphany Square Studio and Square Silver Charm Settings.
Love & Marriage: Cute Cuts, Cake Frosting, Ciao Chip Wedding Icons, Wedding Day Miniatures; Crochet Flowers: Juniper; Feathers: Punch
“Heaven On Earth” card, by Laurie Schmidlin.
With our cold temps and snow still on the ground, I am dreaming of summer! I couldn't help digging into the warm and sunshine filled Sand & Surf Collection! I combined a Journaling Sticker with some Cute Cuts to create a cluster effect. For the accents, I used a couple of Miniatures stickers along with the Square Shape Studio from Epiphany Crafts.
Sand & Surf: Miniatures, Just Write Journaling Stickers, Cute Cuts, Borders; Designer Tape: Cotton Candy Chevron; Button Market: Pink Flowers
"Sweetness", by Laura Vegas.
I have had this photo collage of my youngest daughter, Sarah, printed out and sitting on my desk for close to a year now. I finally was inspired to do something with it and searched out patterned paeprs that would match her clothes. I love pulling papers from a variety of collections for a really fun look. I used Epiphany's Shape Studio Tool Pennant, along with the epoxy shapes, to create a few quick and simple embellishments for the page.

"It's Your Birthday" card, by Laura Vegas.
I always need birthday cards, and yet I never seem to have them on hand. I figured this was a great chance to make a few birthday cards, since the banner shape is a perfect match for birthdays. I used the Shape Studio Banner Tool Pennant on some scraps of patterned paper from the Birthday Boy collection, and created a row of the epoxy shapes below my sentiment sticker.

"Cupcake" card, by Laura Vegas.
For this card, using the Birthday Girl collection, I skipped the epoxy shapes and used the Shape Studio Pennant Tool as just a punch. I punched out a ton of the little banner pieces, using a bunch of tiny scrap pieces of paper that I had laying around. I adhered my "Frosting To My Cupcake" Cute Cut card to the center of my card using pop dots, and then started layering the banner pieces around the outside edge.
Birthday Girl: Miles Of Smiles, Party Dress, Dancing Queen, Sugar Rush, Celebrate, Borders, Cute Cuts; Family Dynamix: Quadrants
