I recently got my hands on the new Square Shape Studio from Epiphany Crafts!!! It rocks. I have to admit I was not initially sold on the idea of the square shape, much like I do not understand the need for square punches when paper trimmers are everywhere. I am so on the same page as Alton Brown when he's in the kitchen: NO uni-taskers in the scrapbook room.
But an interesting thing happened when I started working with the Shape Studio.
I had glued a super cute Authentique Paper diecut in the shape of a postage stamp to a scrap of paper by accident. I wanted some element of the stamp on my page, under the glass-like Epiphany Crafts Bubble Cap (epoxy).
The resulting postage stamp “mosaic” was so awesome! I made each square a little off-kilter from the previous one so they would not line up like tiles but on the page, the image lined up under the “panes of glass”. I wanted more of a feeling of looking through a window at the stamp. It was perfect for the feel of my late-night photos at Urth Caffe with tammyi and boys.
I created the tiles for the title using the same Square Shape Studio from Epiphany Crafts. The letters stickers I chose (American Crafts) were too large for the tiles so I punched them off center to capture the most telling part of each letter. I love the way they turned out!
