Butterflies Clean It Up

After seeing a fun Pinterest Pin on
how a clear glass jar with Baking Soda
can clean up the smell of a room,
I decided what a FUN way to add interest while
cleaning up the smell of our bathroom...
why not incorporate the use of our Stampin' Up! products.... to make a pretty and eco-friendly air freshener?!?!

Going Eco and Family is important for the body and environment... making it pretty is good for the soul!
With a selection of canning jars I had ordered for Holiday Gifts (another Pin that NEVER happened - ugh!)
I couldn't resist playing with the jars to create this
Eco-Friendly scent remover...
(with 6 kids, various allergies, asthma 
and a slew of animals -
the less chemicals, the better!)
With a Sticky Note I used our Big Shot and the Beautiful Wings embossing folder (Idea Book & Catalog) I punched out these butterflies! 
(Making sure to do so where it was sticky - lol)
 
With a Pretty Stampin' Up! patterned hammer
(I nabbed it at the last Convention...) and a
small nail I started to hammer the shape of the
Medium Butterfly.
(This is a small glass jar - so it fit perfectly!)
The Sticky Note holds the shape to the lid while I tapped away... and BAM!!  This CUTE shape is Now on the Lid!!
Fill 1/4 of the way up (or so) with Baking Soda and
I added a few drops of Freesia Oil...
Popped the Lid back on and
I now have an Earth & Family Friendly -
no chemical air freshener for our front bathroom!!
This sweet little jar was supposed to have Pepper Jelly in it...
now houses an all natural scent remover!
With a few shakes through the day our room is sure to be clean and bright smelling!
 
I grew up and remember myyyyy Nanna having a bowl of Baking Soda in her bathroom - what a fun way to remember her and this vintage remedy is a great 'fix' for our commode.
 
What can YOU re-purpose?
How would YOU decorate it?!?!
Don't toss those jars in the trash - Re-Use and Recycle!
Leave me a comment and let me know...
 
Being EcoFriendly is easier than ever...
Making it Pretty is more FUN than ever (lol)!
What would you do with a glass jar?
Grab your Designer Series Papers, Big Shots, Dies, etc and have FUN making the world a beautiful place!!

What Others are SAYING about Gettin' Crafty Stampin'...

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
