Tart n Tangy - Scratch & Sniff Technique

As a child scratch n sniff stickers,pencils etc. was probably one of my favorite things. So when I came across this technique I couldn't wait to give it a try. And I must say I LOVED IT! It's my favorite yet.

Supplies: kool-aid of your choice must be sugar-free,heat gun,clear embossing powder, whisper white CS, tart n tangy stamp set and small containers to mix in.

1. Mix 1 part sugar-free rink mix to 1-1/2 parts clear stampin' emboss powder.

2. Stamp your bol image on card stock with a color that coordinates with your embossing powder mix.

3. Using a stamp-a-ma-jig, stamp you image an heat emboss.

-If you only want to emboss a portion of your image, use a versamark to ink the desired section of your stamp for step 2.
-You can use Craft ink for step 2 and skip step 3.
-You drink mix should be sugar-free b/c heated sugar crisps and browns.

Jesus is Alive - Easy CD Holder

On this project I tried to use most of my retired papers. Like the Taking with Teal CS; Sweet Pea DSP .I actually decided to create these b/c I had my SS class record the story of Easter and wanted to give all the parents a copy and yes of course I had to dress the covers up pretty for them. =) As you can see Im sharing it with you guys too-I was so proud of them; it turned out great.Start out with a 7-7/8 X 11 piece of CS of the color of your choice.
Score 3'' at each end of your CS.Then turn n cut at 3''.Take the 3'' piece you just cut off and adhere to the bottom score line; like shown in the picture here. Only attaching your adhesive,glue dot,sticky strip (what ever you like to use best) Appling it only to each corner or side. I have my image facing up to give example flip over n attach.
now that you have this attached fold your two flaps inward. Again apply your favorite adhesive only on the outer part, and fold bottom piece upper-ward.
Your last step will be to take your 1-1/4 punch center it to the middle of pocket only going half way down; n punch hole.

I attached a small piece of Velcro right under neath the punched out part to give a secure hold. It don't have to have it though it stays down pretty good with out it.

Bunny Buddies.

These lil dudes are so adorable. I'm defiantly making them for my sons Easter Party at school. I love how simple and actually pretty quick they were to put together.
