A Time to Be Grateful!

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." Marcel Proust

November is a month that reminds us to be thankful...grateful for family, friends, house and home, jobs and life.

Designer Keri Babbit has a special layout today celebrating just that! We loved the hand tied bow and of course the Epiphany Crafts accents!

So Grateful
Designer: Keri Babbit

Epiphany Crafts Supplies:

Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio Round 14
Epiphany Crafts Vintage Settings Clubhouse
Epiphany Crafts Frayed Flowers Cherry

Other Supplies:
Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam in Bordeaux
Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze in Northern Lights
Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer Mist in Inchworm
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Pearl
Pink Paislee: patterned paper, alphabets, circle stickers, diecuts, twine
Punch: EK Success

Tips & Techniques:

1. Use Glimmer Glam or Glaze first to add detail to the accents.

2. Add Glimmer Mist afterwards, for a great resist effect.
3. Paint the felt flowers with Glimmer Glam, for a richer, sparkly look.
4. For perfectly coordinated accents with a Grateful theme, use Epiphany Tools and punches to create various embellishments for your page, all out of the same sheet of paper!
