Jaded Blossom August Release and Blog Hop !

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Jaded Blossom's August Release Blog Hop.  
Now if you're here from the Jaded Blossom Blog then you're in the right place, if you're just passing thru start at the beginning because you don't want to miss anything.  I also have the complete line up at the bottom.
If you missed my projects this week here is the highlight of it
 
Here is what I made today using the NEW spa sets !!! They have been on the "to do" list for awhile!
The spa sets from Jaded Blossom are Pamper Yourself and Spa Candies
so you see the candy stamps aren't just for candies !!!

 
I made homemade body scrubs and used these adorable jars from the wedding section of Michaels ( you got 18 in a box for 19.99 then I used a coupon)
they are perfect for spa party favors, or any kind of gift !
 
The top is decorated using "Pamper Yourself" from Jaded Blossom and the lotus flower!


LOVE these mini wooden scoops !!! So many uses for them.... and you love them too? Let us know and you may soon see them in the Jaded Blossom store !

I used washi tape to decorate the handle and tied it using Trendy Twine !


I decorated the jars by using burlap around them then tying with twine (Trendy and Twinery used)

Then using a pear pin I attached a tag using the Jaded Blossom Candy Charm and Banner dies and stamps from "Spa Candies"


I made 2 different scrubs the first one which is my FAVORITE just because of the smell !!
Warm Brown Sugar Vanilla Scrub

1 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1 Tablespoon sweet Almond Extract
2 Teaspoons of Vanilla Extract

The Coconut Oil I recommend getting Organic so it is gentler on sensitive skin. This can be found at your local supermarket in the baking section by the other oils.

 
The second scrub I made is Lime Coconut Sugar Scrub 
 
1 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
3 Tablespoons of Fresh Lime Juice


I hope you enjoyed my projects !!! I will be making these as Christmas gifts this year, so be prepared to see a lot more !

I also wanted to show you my daughter Lily's project for the release.... that girl loves glitter ! HAHA
Lily used the New Bug a Boo set and the Bug Candies!
