My " 3 Times" mini

I made this "3 Times" mini for my mum and her sisters (my aunties) who went to a touristic trip together a couple of months ago.
It has been a lot of years since they got together with no one else but just the three of them. To commemorate that I created a mini for each one of them. All exactly the same in and out, just changing small details to adapt to the name.

Papers and embellishments used here are from Kaisercraft "English Rose" collection.

There is a video uploaded at my YT channel "eluniversoencantado".

A little gift

Recently I went to visit a friend who lives far away from where I live (I mean, I only see her couple of times a year) and I wanted to bring something different. I remembered seeing this idea on one of the many craft blogs I frequently visit (don't know which one, sorry!) so I decided to use it as an inspiration for my present.
Firstly I bought handmade soaps. Then I cut some kraft paper to the size that allowed me to make this shape of a sweet lollie. I stamped two images with Staz-On Timber brown and coloured them with different Lindy's products. To protect the images from being wet I covered them with mod podge.
Besides, I took a couple of Tim Holtz journaling tickets, distressed and stamped the scent of each soap. Again I decorated the words with Lindy's. After that, I wrote a little sentiment for my friend at the back of each one.
Finally I tied up some twine around the extremes and voila! an easy cute gift for someone.
