This is the "RELAX" kit I made for SSC! I put some of my birthday gifts inside of it because they fit perfectly and I will take a relaxing bath when I need it during these looong summer days with the kiddos home!
The tin was also a birthday gift (from 2 yrs ago) from the same friend! I never could decide how to decorate it until I fell hard for the Basic Grey Capella line! Ohh La la! It's sooo super pretty and elegant. Both sides are just as gorgeous. It makes it so hard to decide which one to use!

The blue paper lace is from the same line. The chenille flower is also. I will try to make one like that because hey are just too gorgeous not to hve one in every color! Don't ya think: ) lol!

Inside is a puff for the shower gel, and body lotion. The signature collection from Bath and Body Works. The scent is: White Citrus. Oh you have to try it. Ahhh... is all I will say!
A view of the inside of the tin. On the metal tab is says "Smile" I cut out flourishes from Accent Essentials and covered them with glitter. I don't think you can see them too well. This is a baby size chenille stem flower brad-cute right?!

The BG Capella Kit came with a sheet o alphabet stickers so I spelled out Relax on top of a dotted swiss tag I cut out on my Sizzix. I inked the edges with Moss green

This lace trim is from Wal-Mart!! Can you believe it?! 9ft for $3 or $4- I think it was!!! Sooo pretty.

I think I have fallen in love again! The BG Capella line has me head over heels {lol!} The paper sheets get prettier and prettier as I flip through them! The embellishments,brads and ribbon tape are just as gorgeous. The overlays are from the same line too. Can you see the brown clear vintage button on the top????Click on the image to enlarge it. It's so gorgeous and unique looking. This crochet trim is also from WM. I fed cream satin through the loops to finish it off. On the bottom edge I used my MS punch to create slots then fed sage green very thin satin ribbon through to pull in the green from the overlay up top. All around the circle I added pearls to glam it up a bit more!

Hope you celebrate something fun today!

See you soon : )

Here is a card I recently made for the "Paper Scraps Group" on SSC
Bikini Pocket Card
The polka dots are flocked!!!! I looooove this paper!!! I used a huuuge white brad in the middle of the bikini top as an accent. I have no idea where I even bought those at but would looove more of them! So cute! I stitched with my sewing machine around the bottom to make it look real! The eyelet trim just does it for me!

card out of pocket
back view of the card-I put little black flower rub ons to give it a girly whimsy touch! Wouldn't it be great if we could make our own bathing suits? I'd wear my backyard,that is ; )
Hope you go visit SSC and win lots of goodies this weekend! : )
