Nina B Designs 3nd Blog Hop

Hello, friends! After a much needed summer break, the NinaB Designs team is back to showcase some of Nina's designs for our monthly hop. Make sure you check out the new Summer CHA Releases by Spellbinders, Want2Scrap and Penny Black, and her monthly release by The Craft's Meow.
For this month's hop, Nina challenged us to create something with gift-giving in mind. Here is my project:


A week ago I decided to take the plunge and make my own laundry soap.  I had seen so many pins on Pinterest and after some research I bought the supplies needed and within about 5 minutes I had myself some laundry soap.  You can find the link HERE to the blog that I got the information from.  It does wash up great too!  So with that, I wanted to make up a cute little jar for my best friend.  I knew this would be something she would appreciate.





 Here are the products I used for my project:
Homespun
Fancy That bling
Madison paper pack
Lovely Labels 18




To welcome you back to our hop, we are giving away these TWO PRIZE PACKAGES:
Prize #2 includes The Craft's Meow's Vintage Rides and Retired Layers of Colors Dotted Dahlias and Dotted Peonies Stamp sets:
 
Winners will be picked randomly from 2 of the designers' blogs:

Everybody is welcome to comment and eligible to win. I will announce the winners on  September 22 right here. Due to the number of prizes being given away on my blog and my dependence on my mom to do the shipping, I have to ask that the winners email (via Contact tab above) me with their info within 4 days (till September 26) in order to claim the  prize. This will help with organization and avoiding confusion (I'm 40 now and sadly this happens more often than before :). Thanks for understanding!
Finally, please consider liking the following Facebook pages that are represented on today's hop, so you don't miss the latest news and happenings:
I hope we'll inspire you all today! Happy hopping!
Heather

Darling project! How funny! I made the same laundry soap just last week also! Be sure to share directions for 1 Tb with everyone in your household, unlike me...my 14 year old daughter complained to me just this am that her clothes felt "soapy"... I learned she used a half cup of detergent! Opps!
