~*GIVEAWAY ALERT* Happy Bugs & Embossing w/ VLVS!~

Good morning my friends and happy Cyber Monday! :) 

I spent the holiday weekend with the family and had a beautiful
time, relaxing and enjoying the kids and friends. 
**Giveaway below**

I also managed to sneak away and craft quite a bit. 
Happy Bugs contacted me last week and asked me if I wanted
to do an honest review on their Static Free bags.
I thought I would try it but really didn't understand the premise
UNTIL I tried it! :) 
I decided to get out my new Viva Las VegaStamps plate 1302 and 
try heat embossing. I figure that is pretty much an ultimate test. 
Look how clean and clear my image came out even with the embossing.
I wanted to make some home decor for Christmas, so I went with a canvas.
I had never tried heat embossing canvas before but it was a fun time.
I LOVE the texture for sure! 
But where the Happy Bugs came in was the paper stamped image.
I tried it with and without the powder and it was noticeably crisper with the 
Happy Bugs pouch. Both images were clean and crisp BUT the embossing 
powder really stuck around on the paper without the Happy Bugs
and even though it was clear it definitely was not as crisp.
 Here you can see every letter, and the window streaks too! :) 
For embossing that's pretty cool. 
 Anyways I am super stoked about my cool new project!
Very happy with the Happy Bugs pouch.

And they sent me TWO so I can give one away...
that's the super awesome part of the day.

I had seen a few people use these in YT tutorial videos, but had no clue what they were called or what they really were doing. What an awesome idea! Your image is so perfect without all of the extra little bits that are usually missed tapping off the excess! hugs, Kimberly

I love your canvas! It makes a beautiful Christmas decoration! The stamp you used is adorable! I had to pin it so I'll remember to try it myself.
Thanks, Esther
