Here I go again! I'm addicted to the metal sheets and the Cricut, I will admit, I have a problem lol! So here is another one! For this page I used the embossing kit for the Cricut, Ten Seconds Studios metal sheets, Graphically Speaking, and Design Studio. I stacked the circles for the title in Design Studio!
Again, to get the look on metal, you need to put the colored side down, and sand off the debossed side. Being that Ten Seconds Studios has such amazing colors of metal sheets, this works awesome on them!
The paper line is all Basic Grey Oliver.



**CLOSED*** Now if you kept reading, you are in for a treat!!!
I'm giving away an embossing kit to one lucky blog reader! How do you win?
SIMPLE! Leave a comment here, under this post! Tell me what you would do with the embossing kit if you won it!!! That's it!! And most important, make sure I know where to find you!
I'll pick a winner Sunday night, 9 pm eastern time, or later if I'm running late!
Please only one comment per person!

Ok, the look and layout is TOTALLY awesome!

If I won the embossing kit, it would probably sit with all my scrap stash for at least 4 years, until I can get both my kiddos in school all day! ;) LOL
Now, should I actually win, well then you know where to find me! LOL

I have to admit, when I heard about embossing I wasn't too interested UNTIL I started following your blog!
What would I do with an emossing kit?? I would emboss everything I could get my hands on!!

slotr04 said...

SO CUTE!!!

If I won the kit, I would pull out my cricut more. I need to use that thing for more than cutting a letter here and there.

You can find me on the island!

Kwilt said...

Hey Amy...you know it I would love to win your embossing kit!!! I've been holding out, but someday I will surprise you and actually create some thing awesome to show you!! LOL. I love making mini albulms and I think that embossed images would make a real cool statement to the pages.

Amy! Love the new layout. I want to try the metal embossing and such that you showcase so much of. I have a 3 year old grandson (soon to be my son!) that I am starting a scrapbook on and the things you show would be so cool to do in his book! Thanks for the great inspirations! I would love to win this great prize!

littlen said...

Very nice LO. I think I'd use the embossing on cards since I seem to make a lot of cards.

Jennifer said...

I love the embossing kit...I have been wanting it for awhile but cannot justify buying it right now. It would be awsome for my sister-in-laws wedding album and lots of other pages I need to do. Would love to try it on Disney pages (lots of those to do). Thanks for all that you share with us!!woodsjen99@yahoo.com

Deanna Cosgrove said...

Wow, what a fab giveaway. Would love to have that Cricut embossing kit. Just got a Cricut and am in love w/Ten Seconds studios! Would use the kit for anything from cards to scrapbooking layouts to home decor and mini albums using metal or paper---maybe even Coordinations paper then sand as you have done w/the metal. Thanks for the chance to win...........deanna

Amy said...

I would get over my fear of trying something so different for me and give it a whirl!

I just received my embossing kit and love it! If I were to be the winner, I'd send one to my very good crafting friend who recently moved to AZ. We still craft together via Skype and I'd love for her to have this tool too!

Your layout is totally wonderful; what a awesome way to embellish a charming set of crazy pix. I LOVE my embossing kit and it would be super to win one to share with my scrapping friend! Thank you for the chance. DoriG

Deb said...

This is the best blog candy EVER! I would definitely use it to embellish some manly pages for my husband. You know "man" pages are even harder to embellish than "boy" pages! They just don't look right with flowers and stickles on them!

AJoy said...

I'm always interested in new ways to create a title for my LOs. I would use the embossing kit to do just that!

Thanks for the opportunity!

Tuesy said...

This whole embossing thing on metal just blows my mind!! It's totally EPIC!! (as my kids would say)
Hmm, what would I do with the embossing kit if I won it? I'd be sure to run over and first get some of the metal things that you mentioned and then do some Halo-ish things for my DS. DD would have me make Pokemon things as that's what she likes..and wouldn't they just look totally awesome in metal!?!? Thanks Amy for a chance to win..

Oh, I just love the embossing kit. I love the look of embossed paper and hate that I am limited to the size of the cuttlebug folder. I would also love to try out the metal sheets.

Kristin said...

Emboss the kids! Wait . . . wrong answer! It would actually get me back to scrapping! lol I haven't done much lately but that looks AWESOME! It makes me want to scrap!

AJ said...

OMG! THis is the first I've seen metal used with the Cricut embossing kit. In fact, it's one of the few places I've seen highlighting the embossing kit. If I got it, I would probably try out the metal to add to cards. I really like the train you made. THANK!

Tangen Family said...

I would use an embossing kit to add more dimension to my pages! I'm always looking for the latest and greatest with Cricut and this is it!

Anonymous said...

Wow Amy! If I won the embossing kit I would use it to help my daughter's sorority fundraising phianthropy - breat cancer awareness - they raised over $125,000 in a week last year from other college students!! I would help them make their marketin material standout by embossing their greek letters and pink ribbons for their posters! ~ Ruthgillis61 from MTC Forum!

Torri said...

I'm not sure how I initially found your site but I've been scrapbooking for about 6 months and I'm already hooked. I really love what you do with your embossing kit. It gives your pages that extra dimension. If I won the kit, I know that my next dozen pages would have to have some embossing to jazz up the pages. It looks like so much fun!!!!!

Pink Cricut said...

Woohoo-- How fun is this--If I had an embossing kit, I would emboss Halloween Favor Bag tops! :)

Jenny Gibson said...

I love the colors and textures. Great job.

ColleenSigurdson1 said...

Great LO!! I really like the train. If I were to win I would use Life Is A Beach to make a shell folder to emboss on metal for my anniversary pages about our trip to Tofino.

cuttlebug_fan said...

Very nice LO!! I would love to win the embossing kit! I would use it to emboss images on aluminum foil. I took a class a long time ago in Mexico on how to emboss aluminum foil by hand using a bunch of tools. I love the end result but it was very time consuming. Thanks for the great giveaway.

ksqueenb said...

WOW! I love, love love that train. I have 2 boys and tons of stuff to scrap from when they were young but I can also so see this for a teen boy. I would probably start trying to create a bass clarinet to put on some pages but the train would be be next

SassyCricut said...

LOVE what you did with the metal.. it looked awesome on the page.. I need to emboss a metal rocket ship that my son made in 4th grade.. it was made of paper towel rolls and tin foil.. this technique would look awesome on the page.. thanks for sharing "candy"..

Tara said...

Amy, you do such wonderful work embossing! I would love to give it a whirl, and think it would work out just magnificently on some manly cards that I've been meaning to do...I'm thinking diamond plate and alcohol inks....*scratches chin*
Thanks for the opportunity!!

pretendsupermom said...

very cool layout!
What would I do with the embossing kit? I would make little metal "license plate name tags" for my children. Use them in scrapbooks, on school back packs and lunch bags, hang them on their doors.
I would probably develop a slight addiction to those metal sheets.

Ivy said...

great layout! i would love to give a go and try that technique (creating your own embossing kit) and using metallic sheets. thanks for the introduction, i'm pretty excited to try it out! =)

Flamenco92627 said...

Those look awesome! I guess I would use it to figure out how to use the cricut with embossing. I am clueless! I would definitely do LOs and cards.
Thanks for the chance!

Titine said...

I'd love the embossing kit! I have all your other holders but am on a spending ban :( I think I'd most use this for embossing on metal like the examples you show, that is such a neat technique!

Clare D. said...

I would love to emboss a 12 x 12 sheet of paper! Maybe an all over lace pattern! Thanks for the drawing.

karen said...

Your page is so cute. I love to add emobssing to cards. They really add a professional, fabulous look. It helps to draw attention to a specific area. I would love to win. Thanks for the chance.

Chris and Rebecca Morton said...

Oh wow! The embossing looks amazing! I would love to make unique custom embellishments for my cards and layouts! So beautiful!

love the embossing tip. I keep thinking I don't NEED one, but I sure do want one. If I won the embossing kit, I would first use it for my scrapbooks of my beautiful daughters adn families--and I would be running to my next monthly crop with the tip in hand. I know that some of my cropping buddies would love to see it in action. AND I'd probably be teaching a class about the embossing tip at the next fall retreat in October (haha!).

Wow! I love that Dr. Seuss metal embossing that you did! The details on that and the train in your newer layout are amazing! I would love to use the embossing kit to make Paul Frank and friends metal embossed pieces for my son's scrapbook! Thank you for the chance to win!

**Treefrog** said...

This is like a blast from the past for me, we used to glue string down and then use the heavier foil on top and go around the foil to make it look embossed, I've also used the sticky flashing tape and punched cuts to have it look embossed WOW so much easier, LOL! I would love to try it on the metal sheets, how fun and thanks for sharing and good luck to all!

Quiltfairy said...

What you have done with your cricut embossing tool and tape is utterly amazing, inspiring, and makes me want to race out and buy all supplies. Unfortunately things are a bit tight right now so I'm spending the time planning projects. Probably some of the first things I'd try would be the intricate embossing (like your train image) on candle sleeves as I think these would be beautiful for gifts.

Thank you for all you share!
