9:15AM Saturday morning - the Challenge Questions are closed as we prepare to announce winners.

If you have an extra moment, you may want to visit Shona's blog today.
She has used Flocking and shown two techniques using the embossing folders!
How cool was that? She did not even know we recently discussed this!

Happy Valentine's Day to You!
Consider yourself hugged, appreciated, and cared about.

Sparkle N Sprinkle carries several liquid adhesives, in addition to Tear-ific Tapes, Quickie Glue Pens and Stickum Powder. The specialty glues each have different properties and may be used in a variety of ways.

I'm sorry that none of my ideas have photos - these are all things which I've done, but failed to photograph.

One of my favorite techniques is using glossy cardstock. Choose colored cardstock, or color white glossy with inks. Run the glossy CS through an embossing folder. Using a paint brush or your fingers, lightly apply Brushable Glue in some of the areas of the embossed design. Sprinkle on glitter. When glue is dry, brush off excess glitter. The glitter will remain in place and really looks great in contrast to dark glossy.

Fabric Glue adheres glitter, lace, jewels and other washable embellishments. Allow to dry flat for 8 hours. Please don't wash for 72 hours. Works even through the washer and dryer because of its flexibility! Children enjoy making their own T-shirts or decorating their tennis shoes and so do I.

A big favorite for me is Ornament Glue. What a hit these pretty ornaments are as gifts to friends and family members. It is especially pretty with SNS Glitter tinsel, and glitters which have larger flakes. Another combination is glitter with mica powders, or glitters with mica flakes.

A Rose for you:
