    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Sylvia asked: " I'm doing some lemon bash birthday invitations and "save the date" magnetic cards. I want to add lemon scent to them. How can I do it? How can I heat emboss them? Can I add lemon powder to the heat embossing powder?"
    A: A lot of people use sugar-free Kool-Aid® as a scented embossing powder. We have a thread on that here .
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Patricia has a suggestion for the Color Block tutorial: "This could easily be run through an embossing folder for another lovely background."
