Project #3 & Blog Candy: Sharing the Wealth! (Well, sharing embossed paper)

Congratulations!  We have a winner!!

I will email you at

Project #3 and Blog Candy

From time to time, I participate in swaps.  These are mostly hosted on the Cricut message boards.  For the most part, they go according to plan!

One of my latest swaps was for embossed papers.  What a great idea to not only to get more embossed paper but also get a jump start on making cards.  I originally had 2 spots in the swap and angel'd a third spot.  Since I had so many spots, I had 3x as many duplicate items.  I figured I'd share the wealth of embossed papers with my Scraps of Color sistas.  

Below is a picture of one of the packets I'll be mailing out to an SOC sister.

I am making a card to go along with the packets and the ladies from Forever Young will be on the card.  I had the ladies lined up on my work station and snapped a quick picture of them.

Blog Candy:
I'm giving away a card pack from The Stencil Company and a pack of super cute pens to go with it.  

To enter for the blog candy, tell me what you like to share with others when crafting - it could be a physical item or just your love of the hobby.  If you have any projects that you've made from something that you have been given, please feel free to link your project.  Be sure to include your email address for me so I know how to get ahold of you in the event your the winner.  You must leave a comment on the blog candy entries to  be a winner for that give-a-way.

Also, remember, if we get up to 56 followers by the 28th, I have Cricut cartridges to give away!  Another one just arrived in today's mail.  The cartridges are all new and include the Cricut rewards points.  Now, tell me who doesn't love a free cartridge?!?

Thanks for stopping by!!

This is a great assortment of embossed papers that I'll be sending to four of my SOC sisters
I'm in the the process of making cards for my SOC sisters.  These Forever Young ladies will be featured on the cards.  They reminded me of a line up for brides maids.  Hmmmm, maybe a future LO in mind?!?!

  6. I love textures so embossed papers always bring an extra glint to my eyes. And I too see an interesting bridal LO with the Forever Young ladies!

    As a newbie, I don't have enough of anything to consider myself a "hoarder". At this point, I'm a happy gatherer!

  7. I have never seen the embossed paper. They look lovely. The Forever Young ladies are my favorite. I think it's a great idea to use them. You are an inspiration again.. my friend.

  8. Your forever young ladies are georgeous,love their dresses. I am allways looking for inspiration on projects, TFS

  9. I love sharing technique and finding supplies we want cheaper to save me and my scrappy friends money!!

  10. I don't know how I missed the line-up of the silhouettes from Forever Young. The paper you used is "soft, calming and beautiful" and yet there's still something very super-hot-sexy sexy about these chicks! Renee C. (Domestikdiva1)

  11. Sharing embossed paper is such a unqiue idea. I love the ladies. I would share items from my stash that I haven't used in quite awhile or that are duplicates. I've used brads from a blog candy prize for the center of flowers. The link is below. TFS and the chance to win.
