Oval Occasions Bath Tea Holder

I love to create homemade recipes for pampering myself at home, and last fall I found this fun Lavender Tub Tea that sooths the skin and creates a luxurious bath experience to go along with my sugar scrubs I’ve shared with you in the past. So I knew I wanted to whip some up to share with my Team for their day of pampering at my Peak Princess event. Here is what I came up with.

A quick and simple packaging idea to hold this special little tub tea bag. And while I was thinking lilacs instead of lavender when I designed it, don’t ask me why, I think the purples from the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper goes lovely with the tea bags any how. And you can get a ton of holders out of just one package of paper, making it perfect for sharing with friends.

I’ve created a quick video for you so you can see how I made them.

And great news the tub tea is soooo easy to make with ingredients you may even have around the house. This herbal tea is packed with herbs, salts and other skin soothing treatments creating a luxurious bath when steeped. It’s a perfect way to warm up and relax during the cold winter months. When you’re done simply remove the tea bag – no messy clean up!

Lavender Oatmeal Tub Tea Recipe

2 cups Epson Salts

2 heaping Tablespoons Dried Lavender

15-20 drops Lavender Essential Oil

1 cup oatmeal

1 cup powdered milk

9 Extra Large (Size 4) tea filters

Grind the oatmeal in a food processor or blender to get a coarse powder.

Mix the Epson salts, dried lavender and essential oils in a large bowl and stir. Then add in the powdered milk and ground oatmeal. Mix well. Fill your tea bags with about 1/3-1/2 cup of mixture and seal as desired.

I did find that you want to make sure to place this little gift into a cello bag (102210) or Clear Envelope (102619) – It helps fragrance from the dried Lavender and Essential Oil last longer it also helps keep things cleaner too.

And of course it never hurts to have a printable PDF tutorial. This one not only includes a supply list and my step by step instructions. It also has the recipe and labels all in one handy document making it easy to reference again and again.

Wondering where I got the tea bags and lavender? I’ve added the links for the items I used for my gifts on the pdf for you in case you’re wondering where to find them.

Enjoy!

Oval Occasions Treat Holder Tutorial

Love quick and easy treats? I know I do – I love cute packaging that brings a smile to that special someone’s face. And the Flowers for Every Season 6×6 Designer Series Paper makes these treats quick and easy!

I whipped these up last week for my team’s Peak Princes event on Sunday. This event celebrates my teams accomplishments over the last 6 months, so this sentiment seemed perfect for it. I not only tucked in some chocolate, because who doesn’t love that? I also included their lanyard charm that I created with one of our embellishments too.

Check out just how quick and easy it is to make with just some score lines in my video tutorial so you can whip some up too!

Today’s card is the last in this series of 3 cards using the Dragonfly Garden Bundle.

This card is the last in my second Mix It Up Series, so if you missed Series #1 or the other 2 cards why not scroll through my past blog posts? Meanwhile here is the video and pdf tutorial for you.

Mix It Up Series 2 Dragonfly Garden Card #3 PDF Tutorial

I love the landscape option for cards. Do you find you tend to gravitate toward landscape or portrait layouts? Back in High School my art teacher, Mr. Panaro pointed out to me that every time he gave us an option my choice always was landscape. While that was many years ago that observation still rings true. I try to create with the portrait layout in mind too, which is part of what I love about this Mix It Up Series, it always us to stretch and try new things. Have you ever noticed you tend to gravitate towards a certain layout more? Why not leave me a comment and let me know?

Enjoy! Looks like it will be a good weekend to stay inside and craft a little, but then any time is a good time to craft a little if you ask me!

Dragonfly Garden Mix It Up Series #1 final Tutorial

Today marks the end of my Mix It Up Series Series #1 and it’s final project. This week I’ve been sharing with you cards all made with the same pieces, just mixed up. This technique is a fun and quick way to create cards quickly. Whether your new to stamping or a avid crafter like myself you’ll find this series a great way to craft.

Today’s card once again uses the classic Misty Moonlight and Bumblebee combination. Since it uses just 2 ink pads it’s a great way to start building your color collection. And since they both are part of our 2020-2022 In Color Collection you can choose our Cardstock Assortment pack since it contains all 5 colors in the In Color collection.

Done in a landscape layout it with simple stamping – this sentiment is a great way to spread some cheer.

Here is my video tutorial and a printable PDF also for you. Did you know that each of my PDF tutorials not only gives you a complete supply list, measurements, and step by step directions as a companion to the video but it also includes the YouTube link? Yep, they do – that makes it simple to keep everything in one place!
