One last gift

My Grandson Michael wanted me to help him make this for his friend Brian who lost his Mom, Debbie a year ago. I think that was such a nice thought and shows me what a beautiful heart he has, to be 19 and think of such a gift for a friend. I think it turned out awesome and I'm sure Brian will cherish it always!

Scripture and photo blocks

I did some last minute crafting today for a few Christmas gifts.
I'm so behind this year and just can't find the spirit. Is everyone ready?

Wonderful product and......

A few little projects.

First of all I found this at Walmart and I tell you it has many uses and is a must have in our crafting stash!

It's an adhesive clear laminate on a roll , you can find it with the contact paper and it's made by Duck it's acid free so can be used with pictures, scrap booking, I used it on the project below and get this!!!!! It can be cut with the cricut. I used it with a normal blade and high speed and pressure, cut with no problem whatsoever! It can also be used to cut stencils on the cricut and way cheaper than the stuff cricut sells for that. It's like 5 bucks for a 12inch x 36ft. roll, can't beat that. If you can think of other uses please let us know!
If you are cutting words for stencil be sure to hit flip so the word will be facing the right way and the sticky part will be on the correct side.
I made some sugar scrub gift jars and I used it to laminate the paper I used. I bought the jar at walmart for 1.76 and I'm sure you could find something at your local dollar store.
If you want to make some just google homemade sugar scrub and take your pick, these make great inexpensive gifts! I used raw sugar, brown sugar, coffee, cinnamon and light olive oil. This stuff makes your skin feel so soft and makes your hands look years younger too!

I will post the other project in a separate post since this one is so long.
