Happy Thursday everyone! I wanted to share with you a sweet Happy Birthday Card I made for my grandson:) His middle name is Fisher - why? Because his father is a fishaholic! No lie:) His name is Andrew Fisher and he LOVES fishing just like his dad!
I created my card with "Gone Fishing" by Sarah K - one of my all time stamp artists. Her creations are nostalgia, adorable and fun to color.

Happy Thursday everyone!! I am bringing back an oldie, but one I love and is still available at 7 Kids College Fund store. I was commissioned to create 26 Father and Mother's Day cards. I sent a card I created before with Big Shoes by Mo Manning by Stamping Bella and she wanted 5 more in different colors! Here are two different ones. I love this image for she can be used for almost any occasion and so fun to work with!

There are several kits available to chose from, I chose
SOAP MAKING 101 KIT from Life of the Party to try first.
The kits comes with 16 ounces of clear soap, 16 ounces of white soap, .27 ounces of Cucumber Melon Fragrance, 27 ounces of red color, .27 ounces yellow color, .27 ounces of blue color, .03 ounces of white pearl powder, four molds and instructions. You need to supply a glass measuring cup and a small spritzer filled with alcohol.
Decide what shape you want your soap and the colors you would like to make it. We did four different shapes and designs. Break your bars of soaps into pieces into a glass container. The directions will advise you to how many you will need for each design. Place in microwave for approx. 1 minute or less. Keep checking to see if the soap has melted.
Add your coloring and fragrance and stir. At this time you can add the shimmering
powder which I forgot to do:( Stir.
Pour into your mold. Easy peasy - my son is doing this while I shoot the photo's:)
Spritz with alcohol to remove all the air bubbles. I filled my mini mister and it was perfectly.
While that was hardening - we prepared the other bars. It takes 1 1/2 - 2 hours to completely dry.
We made two fancy bars by removing them and cutting them into regtangles or straight lines.
With the rectangle bar we sliced evenly 3 times across the length and 3 times across the width. We placed every other rectangle back into the mold
Slowly pour the second color between the rectangles.
Spritz again with alcohol which made this look like glass when done
This is how it looked when dried. I love the way it has a marble look to it.
The circle we cut into triangles and layered the hexagon with pink and white
Square bar was cut into four strips and filled with the white soap in between to form the strips.
Before wrapping you can wrap your bar of soap tightly and heat it slightly with a heat
gun to adhere the plastic wrap to the bar.
There are so many different ways of wrapping your soap to make a beautiful gift. Create a card with matching paper and will make a very loving gift.
Love you Abbie, thank you for helping me!
