GIVEAWAY! Maple Hills Wool Dryer Balls

A few weeks back, I discovered Maple Hill Naturals and today I'm excited to review their all natural wool dryer balls for you!  Maple Hill Naturals specializes in  all natural products like shampoo, soap, lip balm, and wool dryer balls.  I know it's kinda weird to get excited about dryer balls, but when I love a product, I love a product.

I have had the chance to use Maple Hill's dryer balls for a couple weeks now and I love they way they work!  I love saving $ so I was interested to know if my clothes really would take less time to dry with these dryer balls.  I have noticed a decrease in the amount of time my dryer is running.

These dryer balls come in unscented, scented, and essential oil scented dryer balls.  I have the Outdoor Fresh scented dryer balls and LOVE the way my clothes smell!  This scent reminds me of downy and I could really sniff it all day long!  Maple Hill sells re-scenting kits for when the scent of your dryer balls starts to fade. 

I've also used the unscented dryer balls. I have a couple kiddos who have sensitive skin and so I wash/dry their clothing separate with unscented soaps/products. So I love that I can use the unscented balls to help with static when I am drying their batch of laundry.


Maple Hill Naturals is giving one of my readers a chance to win a set of their own dryer balls. One lucky winner will receive a set of 2 XL wool dryer balls (scented or unscented).  A $16.99 prize.
Open to residence of US, Mexico, & Canada.

Iron on Decorated Pillows

I love throw pillows and love to change them up every so often. I've given new life to a couple of existing pillows I had by ironing on some iron on vinyl.  I used my Silhouette machine to cut the shapes. The Jane Austen Silhouette was a file I randomly found on the internet and the vintage bike was an image I purchased from the Silhouette store.
It really was that easy. Cut iron-on material with my Silhouette Machine and iron on to some pillow covers.  Not bad for a 10 min project, huh?!

I finally had the chance to ink up this super cute Penny Black stamp by Mo Manning. I used some Tim Holtz distress markers. I love how they coordinate with the ink pads. I used my water brush to blend the markers and had fun playing around with these markers.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look today. Don’t forget we have a new challenge at OCS all month long, the theme is Christmas.

Tim Holtz markers

026

Sorry for the fuzzy photo, a bad case of procrastination had me taking pics at 11p at night and so the quality was super low. But I still wanted to let you  know about the new challenge at One Crazy Stamper this month. The theme is Christmas and as always you have the entire month to join in and there is a fabulous prize up for grabs!

I used a new Wild Rose Studio stamp and had a chance to color with some Tim Holtz distress markers for the first time. I used my water brush to blend the colors. I realize that I have a long way to go to learn how to use these properly but they were pretty fun to use. I love how they coordinate with the ink pads.

stamps: Wild Rose stamp, Distress Ink Markers, Viva Decor Pen, twinery twine

SNOW!

006

I’m back with another preview of High Hopes newest release! I used this sweet SNOW stamp and colored it with my Copics.  You know I love CAS cards and I especially love CAS cards at Christmas! I don’t have time to go to post office and weigh each card I mail so I try to keep them relatively flat.  A couple of years ago, I mailed a card to my BFF and it arrived to her with 10 cents postage due. I was pretty embarrassed, luckily it was my friend and not someone who didn’t get a good laugh about it!

Supplies: High Hopes SNOW stamp, memory box die, Basic Grey pearls, Cuttlebug embossing folder

Not a Card!!

022

Since this month at OCS we are celebrating May FLOWERS (see our monthly challenge) I decided to make something other than a card with these gorgeous Prima flowers from the OCS. This headband I made for my (not so little) baby girl was super simple.

1- I bought the elastic from my local craft store. Then, I measured the correct length of elastic for my daughters head

2- hand stitched the elastic together

3- cut a piece felt roughly the size of the flower bundle (you can trim this down after you glue the flowers on, so non of the felt is showing)

4- hot glue flowers to felt and then felt to the elastic headband.

prima

This was so easy, I hate to call it a tutorial. Its more like a “look how easy this was, you can do it too.” :)

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look and please stop by the OCS to see all the gorgeous flowers in stock!

Many holds upon happiness

018

 

Happy Monday, OCS friends!  If you haven’t heard, this month at OCS our challenge theme is FLOWERS. You have until the end of the month to join in and get an entry into our monthly challenge prize drawing!!

I used this gorgeous gray flower from Maya Roads on my card and since I HATE to waste, I made it into a removable barrette. I realize that not every person I make a homemade card is going to hold on to it forever. And the thought of this pretty flower finding it’s way into the garbage makes me cringe, so I gave it another function.

026

It was really very simple to make the barrette, I just hot glued the flower to a 2 pronged clip that I bought in bulk from my local beauty supply store.  The clips are really inexpensive and convenient to have on hand.029

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

Supplies: Maya Road flower, MFT butterfly die,  Simple stories paper, corner punch, viva decor pen, Spellbinders heart die, PTI sentiment

I’ve created a little scene with a few of these stamps.  I colored with my copics and fussy cut them, but OCS carries the matching dies to this set also HERE.

So I am wondering, are you a fan of Lawn Fawn stamps or are they not your cup of tea?!

Swim Page!

 

I got a chance to scrapbook a page from my son’s swim lesson pictures. I used some of this gorgeous paper from Simple Stories Summer pack.  I really love this paper pack and will be using it a bunch more!  I kept the page fairly simple but added a cluster of various embellishments that i got from the OCS store!  Here is a close up of the embellishments.

My kids are looking forward to swim lesson’s again this year…it’s almost summer! yay!  Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
