Giveaway Time and Sneak Peeks :)

First and foremost I want to say Happy Veteran's Day!! 

I cannot thank our service members enough for all that they do! Past and Present I am proud to honor you today! 

(And My Love, I am so thankful for the time you put into the service! You have been such a role model for our children (and me), to show dedication, loyalty, and honor in a way that not many can do! Thank you for showing us that. And even tho you aren't in the military any more you continue to show us how amazing and completely cool and awesome you are! I love you with every piece of my being!!)

Ok, so now we are on to other fun (and not so sappy) and exciting news!!!!

Who doesn't love a giveaway?!?!? I know I do!!! And I am super excited about this particular one because it is FULL of some awesomeness, including: Scor-Tape, Glitter, and Envelope Maker!!!! And a big lovely thank you to Theresa(The Scrapbooking Queen)  for donating all these goodies!!!

(If you came over to visit me today from Sweet Stamp Shop's Blog than you know what's going on, if not go HERE to see the first part of this post. and how to be entered into to win this lovely giveaway!)

So, like I had said before about Scor-Tape being VERY versatile, did you know that you can use it with embossing powder?? Yes, you can pour embossing powder directly onto the scor tape, heat it up, and emboss it! You cannot only emboss it, but tear it too because it is a paper adhesive. Unlike  red-line tapes (i.e. ThermoWeb's Super Tape, which is great as well, but...) which are made of plastic therefore you cannot just tear it or emboss it, It will melt. So, to emboss it is as easy as pie... Simply pour your embossing powder onto the adhesive and heat until set, just like you would normally do with a stamped image you are going to emboss.

Check out the fun I had with the Scor-Tape and embossing powder.

I simply made a border around my card with the 1/4" and applied silver embossing powder and then I made a second border on the inside with the 1/8" and applied a mint colored embossing powder. I just love how simple and easy it was to create a frame on my card. I finished off with a sentiment from the Chalkboard Sign set from Sweet Stamp Shop. You can find that HERE.

 What do you guys think? Easy??? Leave me a comment below, I would love to hear. Do you have some projects/Cards where you have used Scor-Tape just leave me the link below I would love to see :)

If you haven't been to the Sweet Stamp Shop blog you can check it out HERE! It is full of more GREAT ways to incorporate Scor-Tape into your crafting projects! (Also, the Sweet blog will have ALL the details on how to get in on the giveaway and to see everything that you can win)

As always...Thank You for stopping in!

Some Of My Favorite Things

Hey everyone, I thought I would just pop in real quick and show you a card I made. I have had a rough week and didn't get a whole lot of crafting done,  but I did manage to still work on a few things one of them being this fun little birthday card.

I pretty much pulled all my favorite things to craft with and compiled them onto one card! Here is a quick little run down of what some of my favorite things are. I know you guys are all dying to know lol

1) Sweet Stamp Shop Stamps
2) SRM Stickers
3) Enamel Dots
4) Spray Mists (Heidi Swapp, Dylusions, and Glimmer Mist were used in the making)
5) Kraft Paper
6) October Afternoon Papers
7) Adhesive (of course I have to have that on my list! And that includes a bunch of different kinds: Pop dots, liquid, Scor Tape)

So, nothing like a good birthday card ready to go whenever I need it.

I am so happy with how this came out! Here are some of the exact products I used:
