MFT Blog Hop - A relaxing day

Welcome to another MFT blog hop. Hopefully you came here way of Holly's blog. If not that is fine but you may want to start at the beginning which is Kim's blog. Because this hop is all about "we'll change the way you gift" so you don't want to miss out on how everyone is "Filling their Jar".

Yes, a jar. Kim is now carrying these cute little jars (set of 4) that the new stamp sets will fit. So how can a stamp set fit a jar? Well if it's a label set of course! Two different label sets are being released and I'm proud to share with you "Time for the Bubbly" label set.

I made a little gift ensemble using the label set three different times and in three different ways. First I attached it to the jar, layering it on top of Chocolate Kiss paper from MFT. The bubbles have crystal effects on them. The rug is paper pieced from the Chocolate Kiss paper. The tub and legs are layered with the tub being layered a second time. I stamped "Just for you", included in the label set, on the label. Ribbon from MFT is run through the label and tied on the side. I even decorated the top of the lid by tracing the lid and cutting out pretty in pink to match. The chocolate kiss was cut with circle scallop nestabilities.



So what is in my jar? While trying to figure out what to put in the jar, I spotted some mini heart candles that I had sitting on my mantel. Perfect! Light some candles, pour in some bubble bath and have a relaxing bath! (That is if the kids leave you alone!)

Speaking of bubble bath. I happened to have a bottle and it was pink! So using the label set, I made another matching label but this time I stamped "Bubble Bath" (included in the set) on it.



Next the gift bag.... well it has to match the theme right? So out came "Time for the Bubbly" stamp set and more Chocolate Kiss paper. This time I used Liquid Pearls on the bubbles and paper pieced the wall, mirror and rug. The tub and legs are layered with the tub having a second layer. Top Note and doily scallop punch were used. Ribbon and button are also from MFT. Made a matching tag with the label set that attaches to the bag with MFT ribbon. What a cute way to say "To & From" and still coordinate with the theme.

Now I'm sure you want to go take a bath after reading all that but don't (at least not yet) as you are not finished with the blog hop. It's now time to head over to Susan's for some more ways to fill that jar!
