Welcome to the Clear & Simple Stamps: Release in Review. Today we are focusing on a variety of shapes and label sets from Collection 3.
The Au Naturel Extras set is great for creating homemade gifts and treats.... everything from baked goods to natural candles or scrubs. I whipped up a Coconut & Orange scrub... a fun and easy gift to say "thanks" to someone who deserves to put their feet up and relax.
For the "Thank You" card I used the Label 11 die stamped with Hexagons Plus to create a focal point. The frame and flourishes are included in the Au Naturel Extras set as well.
For the jar of Bath Salts, I used Tag 1 to create a coordinating tag.
The scrub recipe is basically:
2 parts sea salt to 1 part natural sugar (in this case - 1 c. to 1/2 c.)
1/2 c. of emollient/moisturizer - I used Coconut Oil.
20-30 drops of essential oil fragrance. (orange)
For an additional homemade touch, I made a label for the jar lid and tied everything up with Orange You Fabulous ribbon. I love how easy it is to create something that has such a professional, boutique style without paying a premium price. Can you imagine pairing this with nail polish for summer treats or making peppermint scented scrub for homemade Christmas gifts?
