Winners of the Embossing and Paper Crafts Challenge

This was a fun week! I am so inspired by your projects.

I have been intimidated by paper crafting in the past, but now I am excited to try some of your projects.

Be sure to go through the links and find some inspriration for yourself.

This week was sponsored by Wagner Spray Tech. Each day this week, I showed you how to use their HT 3500 heat gun. It is the first digital heat gun introduced to the DIY market.

For more information on Wagner and all of the DIY home improvement products they off, go here.



In addition to providing 1 lucky CSI follower with their own heat gun, Steve, the E-Marketing and PR Manager was the guest judge this week. He had the hard job of picking this week’s winners.

So, here we go.
