Hollywood Stars Layout

Time sure does fly by. It's hard to believe that I haven't been designing or working in the craft industry for 6 months. When I went down to my scrap room to create the other day, it felt so good. It's kind of like exercising. You just need that release, ya know? I was digging through some old photo graphs and found this photo that we took in Hollywood when we went exploring the week after CHA a few years ago. Of course, I needed a photo with Brittney Spears! Who wouldn't? 

Heidi Swapp stickers are my new "go to" for titles. They are so easy and colorful.  I used my trusty plastic plate to make my large circle. My kids always laugh at me when I come upstairs for a plate!


You're the BALM!

So I made these a few months ago for Valentine's Day but a good friend of mind ordered some just for plan old "Thank You" gifts for some friends. I probably sound like a broken record but Core Tags are the easiest for this kind of quick gift.

Here is another, simpler version if you don't want to die cut the letters. I LOVE running my smooth Core Tags through the printer. Is super easy!  I print on a scrap piece of paper, then adhere the tag with some washi tape so I can remove them without tearing. Add some May Arts Ribbon and you are done. 


Teacher's RULE!

I love being able to combine my love of Lemongrass Spa and all things natural and my craftiness.  I took some Core Tags and these FUN Maya Road rulers to create a fun teacher gift for my son's teachers.  As you can tell, I love to use play on words. It makes life fun, I think!

Core Tags are super easy to use and colorful. I love that they have a sturdy metal grommet so they don't tear easily.  Cut out some letters with a die cutting machine and you have a quick and easy gift.

GREEN Mason Jar Fun!

Colored Mason Jars are the bomb. These green ones are so festive for this time of year with St. Paddy's day right around the corner! These large ones are perfect for a Lemongrass Spa body spritz, sugar scrub sample and lotion!  THE easiest gift ever AND are super easy to make to order. 

A Core Tag and button, some May Arts ribbon and you are good to go!  Of course, personalizing it is key. 

Sorry for the different background but I wanted a good shot of the contents and was playing with backgrounds.  I save raffia from gift baskets that our family gets so I always have plenty on hand.

Look Who's getting crafty AGAIN!

I know I a little late posting this for Valentine's Day but now that life has settled down a bit, I am getting back on the blogging train. I have missed it so much!

You KNOW how I love my staches! So here are a few projects I made using Lemongrass Spa goodies. Why not give the gift of natural products?

This first bag, I actually made for CHA using Darice Washi tape. How cute is that tape?  I layered it on some white cardstock and then used some Couture Creations die cuts for the hearts. I LOVE using my computer to print on tags. I print on scrap paper and then line it up and run it through again. EaSy!

And girls love 'staches, too...right?!?!? This was for a friend's daughter. LOVE the tangerine lotion and body scrub!
