Time to link up for the {Embossing and Paper Crafts Challenge}

Welcome back to the CSI Project! I am happy to say it is Party time!

This week has been all about Embossing and using a heat gun for crafting. Our sponsor of the week, Wagner Spray Tech, sent out their Wagner HT3500 Digital Heat Gun to all of the tutorial crafters so we could get hands on  experience with their heat gun. This is the first digital heat gun that has been introduced to the DIY market and we are the only DIY blog bringing it to you. Your CSI girl, Dee, got to work and came up with several craft projects to use a heat gun.

So, Let’s recap the week before we party!

First, we had a wonderful Embossing on a card tutorial from My Scrapbook Life.

Then, we had a great Personalizing hand soap tutorial from The CSI Project.

Finally, we had tutorial of a Embellishing candles with tissue paper from The CSI Project.

Thanks for the inspiration, ladies. You know how to inspire us all. Hope you are all inspired to try out this heat gun and maybe even the art of embossing.

If you are a guest poster or a guest judge, you can tell everyone on your blog by putting our button on your blog. Go here to get them.

When you link up your embossing and Paper crafts, you can expect a visit to your blog from this week’s guest judge, Steve, our Wagner Spray Tech representative. He is the E-Marketing and PR Manager.

Steve will looking at all of your projects and picking Wagner’s overall favorite and 10 that make the CSI cut.

In addition to the winners of the challenge, we will also have a WINNER of  their very own HT 3500 Heat Gun from Wagner Spray Tech.

So, if you have an Embossing project, link it up. If your craft involves paper in any way, link up. It is as easy as that.

Please remember that to be eligible to win this week’s challenge and giveaway, you must provide a link back to the challenge in your entry post. It’s easy–we have a button ready for you to insert into your post HERE. For additional challenge rules, please read below.

You’ll find the linkup for this week’s challenge at the end of this post, following the challenge rules. This challenge begins at 10 pm(MST) Wednesday, March 21st, and ends at noon (MST) Friday, March 23rd .

1. All entries for this challenge need to incorporate the challenge’s theme. We are not simply a linky party. We have a specific theme for each week. All submissions are competing to be the judge’s top pick. If your project does not incorporate the theme we will have to remove it.

2. When you enter the challenge, please enter the link to the specific post on your blog that relates to the project — not to your general blog. This will help when a year from now, for example, someone who visits the site can find your project directly.

3. The CSI Project button must be in your blog post. HERE are the buttons. This makes it easy for other people to come over and join in the challenge if they like – and for us to know that we have the correct entry in the challenge when we’re judging. And if you use an older post, please update it so it’s current. If you don’t want to update it, please add the button to that post and to the sidebar for the week of the contest. Thanks!

4. The project you submit must be your own project and something you have made. (It can be inspired by something someone else has done, but it must be your creation.)

5. We ask that you are a CSI follower or subscriber to win the prizes. The more followers the site has — the more giveaways we are able to host

6. If you enter a project into our challenge, we ask that you please leave comments on at least 2 other entries in the contest. Not only is it nice to do, but it’s a great way to meet new people and make new friends.

7. By entering, you give us permission to spotlight your projects – we will give you credit and link back to your blog. You are welcome to enter as many themed projects as you like! You also give us permission to add your name to our newsletter list. If you wish to unsubscribe you may do so at any time.

    Hi. I tried linking up my project with 3 mins left, but it wouldn’t let me. I am not sure why, your site wouldn’t open to let me enter my project, since it wasn’t closed yet. I am really bummed out. If there is any way to still get in my link is: http://urbanhoot.blogspot.com/2012/03/embossed-greeting-cards.html. Thanks.
