Cookie Cutter Christmas & Gingerbread Cookie Sugar Scrub

I love to make home made gifts and the Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle brought to mind the wonderful Gingerbread Cookie Sugar Scrub recipe I had. So here is what I whipped up for some family and friends.

I love the little wooden spoons I found since they can be stamped on.

Sugar scrubs are great for the winter and this one smells so yummy. My husband loves them for his hands and I actually use this scrub in the shower all over my body, hands, feet, legs, elbows – it is wonderful and moisturizes too. (Just make sure you are careful in the shower the scrub can make the floor slippery.)

I’m including the recipe below for you in case you’d like to make some last minute gifts too!

 

Gingerbread Cookie Sugar Scrub

1 c. brown sugar

1 c. sugar

1 c. vegetable oil

2 tsp. cinnamon

2 tsp. nutmeg

2 tsp. ginger

2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

3 drops Vanilla extract

Mix well and place in a tightly sealed container such as a mason jar.

This keeps well in a cool place for weeks!

Today I also wanted to share some of the wonderful hand stamped cards that I’ve received for Christmas from friends – I can’t pick a favorite they are all so wonderful!

Holiday Catalog Fun at the Team Retreat

A couple of weekends ago I held my annual Blue Mountain Stampers’ Weekend Getaway for my team. It’s a fun event that I really look forward to each August.  A full weekend of stamping with friends – what could be better, right? As usual I forgot to pull out my camera when everyone was together.  But here is a photo of Melanie and Cindy.

BMS August Retreat 2016 (5)

Melanie was designing a special baby project she needed and Cindy came prepared to create LOTS of birthday cards! Mission accomplished I think.

It also gives us a time that we can share our NEW Holiday Catalog productions, create with them and do a Shoe box Swap together. There is lots of stamping, laughing and well, just silliness. And who doesn’t need a little of that?

Like as we enjoyed the beautiful afternoon  on the patio-

BMS August Retreat 2016 (14)

these two wanderers along with their friend came to visit and say hello. (Yes, I know who’d have thought – chickens? go figure ?? Of course, Larry corrected me multiple times since they are roosters I’ve got no clue where they belong.)

Want to see what we created and stamped? Here are some wonderful items from our Shoe box Swap on Saturday afternoon.

Melanie created this fun card using the Paisleys & Posies stamp set (142196).

BMS August Retreat 2016 (8)

She used the Thoughtful Banner stamp set (141614) for the sentiment and the Bow Builder Punch (137414) covered in Clear Wink of Stella (141897) once the Bow was put together. Can you see the shimmer on the bow? I know my photo doesn’t do justice to the cards.

Cindy made this lovely soft card using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set (143539).

BMS August Retreat 2016 (7)

Cindy used the soft images from the Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper (141660) for the background and added the large swirl from the Swirly Birds Thinlits Dies (141497).

You’re in luck if you didn’t take advantage of the August promotion- it is still available while supplies last. If this set/bundle is something you really want you won’t want to delay any longer!

The next card was Anna’s Shoe box swap and it uses the cute little mice from the Merry Mice stamp set (142142/142145).

BMS August Retreat 2016 (11)

For an added pop of color Fancy Frost Sequins (142519) are scattered randomly on top of the Softly Falling Embossed background.

And finally Marni created this cute little 3d project using the new Home Sweet Home Thinlits Dies (140279) and the Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle (143493).
