Microwave 2-1/2 min. or until hot, stirring after each minute. Stir in potato flakes and Parmesan until well blended. Spoon into resealable plastic bag; cut 1 corner from bottom of bag.

So here is the spice kit. This is a company I have used before, but it is fairly rare. It's the Ruby Rock-It Bella Paper Boy line. I love the bright, fun colors of this. All the cardstock in this kit is Core'dinations. The first two colors (red and aqua) are color core cs and the last color is black magic cs with a light blue core. I showed the black side and then the blue side.
Here are some examples of layouts by DT member, Celeste Brodnik.
And the sugar kit is a very eclectic mix of papers from the new Amy Tangerine line from American Crafts, which I loved when I first saw it. I love how the papers all go together but aren't matchy matchy and there are some fun brights but lots of neutrals. One of the papers has real stitching on it too.
Here is a fabulous example layout by DT member, Megan Aaron.
