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.
