5 Year Blog Anniverary Blog Hop!!!


Hi Everyone! Welcome to Readysetstamp’s 5 year anniversary blog hop! I can’t believe that it’s been 5 years since I started my blog!! Where does the time go?! That just means that I have had WAY to much fun crafting and getting to know so many sweet ladies in the crafting community. I am so grateful to have each and every one of the ladies join me on the blog hop and I am truly grateful to have them as friends. :0) We have so much fun in store for you today. The theme of our blog hop is anything goes. I thought this would be fun and give a wide variety of ideas for you to stir up some fun ideas for you to make!!! For my project today, I use SVGCUTS called Picnic in the Park. The darling sentiment is from CardzTV called Going in Circles. I added a scalloped circle Silhouette ID#26982 and some flowers from Michael's. I thought this would be fun to add some homemade soap. I found the recipe on Pinterest. I tweaked it a bit so that it would fit with the scent that I had on hand. I used this recipe:
http://www.abeautifulmess.com/2014/04/make-your-own-soap-grapefruit-mint-poppyseed-bars.html
I changed using grapefruit to freshly grated lemongrass and 15 drops of essential lemon grass oil. I didn't use any poppy seeds. It smells AMAZING!!! The sentiment on the tag is from CardzTV Love in a Jar Set. I also used the Silhouette banner tag #50940.



 
Let's continue on hopping to see what the super talented Susan has in store for you!! :0)
