I believe that about covers it for the supplies used. You may notice that a few details were changed up on the "In The Moment" stickease layout. Let's just say that a person shouldn't be trimming papers at 11:30 at night. LOL Because of this, I chose to change up the embellishments a little so they didn't blend in with the paper.

Now, for another confession.... This is the first time I've ever embossed, and I was really nervous to try it. The verdict? I LOVE EMBOSSING! It's so much easier than it looks. If you can use a glue pen with our prisma glitter, you can emboss. My only recommendation is making sure that you have cardboard or a big pile of newspaper down under your paper that you are embossing. Stamp it like normal on your hard surface so you get that clean, crisp image. Then hold the paper over your craft tray and sprinkle the embossing powder on it. Once you've done that, tap off the excess powder into your craft tray. Transfer the paper over to your covered surface and use the craft heater to "weld" the embossing powder to the versa mark ink. It took about a minute of heating the image (above) to dry it with that beautiful raised edge.

If you try it, you will love it, too. I have been scrapbooking for a few years, and it took me that long to work up the courage to try it. And now I am wondering why I waited so long. LOL

This goes without saying, if you have small children around, be careful to keep them at a distance when using your embossing powder and craft heater. My 5-year-old son is very curious and watched me from a distance as I worked on this project. His reaction? "Cool!"

Hope you've enjoyed my little tour of Lucky and embossing. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment below or contact me at

Have a happy day!
