 12daysofchristmas2014day12b

A Gift Card Holder is the 12th for the 12 Days of Christmas.

I used the Mingle all the Way stamp set (one of my favorites this holiday season) along with the All is Calm Designer Series Paper.

Although Christmas has past this idea is perfect for any occasion!

Personal Note

I’m truly sorry that I wasn’t able to get these projects posted before Christmas!!! As someone said to me this morning …  I’ve hit a snag in the road and as soon as I’ve moved past it I’ll be full steam ahead.  I wish I could say I feel better.  I don’t.   I have tried to keep the moaning to a minimum but some of you have ask so I’ll share what I know.  It looks like I have an auto immune disease. We’re not sure because I need more tests …but with the holidays it’s difficult.  My next appointment is January 9th.   What are my symptoms besides having zero energy …. almost every part of my body hurts.  Especially my arms, hands and legs.  Even laying down …. I’m in pain…. I woke up last night to my foot hurting really bad … so weird!!   And when you don’t feel well … stamping is the last thing on your mind.  I have a box full of goodies and no strength to stand and create.

I had someone ask” how I could sew and make a quilt” and not feel good.  No hard feelings for the question … I appreciate the truth!!  My sewing machine is probably the one thing keeping me sane!   I have managed to find a way to work my machine that only uses only my left arm (which is the least painful).  It’s called a knee lift and I use it 🙂    I’m also only using pre-cuts … meaning I’m not using a rotary cutter (I’m using Layer Cakes, Charm Packs and Jelly Rolls … they are more expensive but they’re easier on the body.)   

Over the past couple days I’ve had to accept that I will not be able to attend the Stampin’ Up! Leadership meeting in Orlando (in less than a month).  It’s going to be really hard …. I can’t remember the last time I missed an event.   

As soon as I feel better I promise to let you know!!

Here’s the butterfly quilt I made for Brooke (she’s moving out next month … Bella and I will miss her terribly).

12 Days of Christmas 2014 Day 9

 bathsaltsin

The Peppermint Bath Salts are the 9th project for the 12 Days of Christmas.

I made the Bath Salts labels with Photoshop Elements and there’s two sizes (both files are provided on this post).  The larger label fits with the 2-1/2 Circle Punch and the smaller label fits in the 1-3/4 Circle Punch.

I printed the labels on really good copy paper … you can use white card stock but it’s heavier and not necessary.

I purchased the glass jars at Specialty Bottle  …. Brooke and I gave these out as Christmas gifts this year.  

Link to the small white lid jar.

Link to the silver lid jar.

Here’s the Peppermint Bath Salts Recipe:

  • 1 cup Epsom Salt
  • 1/2 cup Sea Salt (course)
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 10 drops doTerra Peppermint Oil
  • Red Food Coloring
