*Echo Park & Epiphany Crafts Blog Hop*









On this hop you'll see the amazing things you can create when you combine
Echo Park Paper Co. paper and embellishments with the amazing tools from Epiphany Crafts.

Here's a project I created just for the hop:



















I LOVE the Epiphany circle! My flower center actually happened by
accident. I was trying to cut it in half & it cracked - well...I LOVED how it looked.
I even have a friend here from out of town & before I said anything about
how I loved it - she said she LOVED it! So..it stayed.
Then I made another one, cut it in half & used it on the side of my card.
Just goes to show you...all scrap accidents are not trashworthy!



Now all you have to do is:
Hop from one blog to the next to discover entirely new ideas for using
these amazing tools with our beautiful products.


Leave a comment on each designers' and company's blog to qualify
for the drawing for an Epiphany Crafts Heart Button Tool and
Heart Button Epoxy stickers, as well as, two collection kits
"Yours Truly" and "A Boys' Life" from Echo Park Paper!

We hope you enjoy all the inspiration created by these two amazing teams.
Winners will be announced on Friday, February 3rd
on the Echo Park Paper blog and the Epiphany Crafts blog.

All comments are due before midnight EST on Wednesday,
February 1st to qualify for the drawing:
