Cheryl B. sent me a Facebook message… “I have a request for a Tuesday two-minute tip. Would you please do one about those rotary stamps? The big one especially, I just can’t seem to get a good image with it. I really love being able to make up my own sayings, I just wish I could get a good solid print.”
What a GREAT question! I have that stamp and I really haven’t used it that much. You’re right when you say it’s great for making your own sayings. Tell ya what… I will make a 2-Minute Tuesday Tip video sharing some ways to get a good, solid image with that stamp. Sound good? I’ll post it next week.
Beverly K. also sent me a Facebook message to ask…. “Do you happen to still have the recipe for the sugar scrub from a couple years back? Miss you my friend!”
Miss seeing you too, Beverly! (Beverly and I live in the same state and she’s a fellow Stampin’ Up demonstrator). I do have that recipe. With the holidays so close, it’s a great time to share this project!
PRETTY SWEET SUGAR SCRUB
- 2 c. sugar
- 1/4 c. of pink Palmolive dish soap (it says Soft Touch on the bottle. You can also use the pink Dawn dish soap made with Olay)
- Small Mason Jar
Pour the sugar and dish soap in a mixing bowl. Mix it up really good and pour into mason jar.
Put about a tablespoon on your hand (don’t measure this – just dip your hand in and scoop a little out). Scrub your hands until the sugar has dissolved completely – about 60-seconds. It’s cool because it almost hurts a little when you first start scrubbing but it feels good too. The sugar starts massaging your hands. Rinse and say OMG! That’s what my kids said when they tried it!
I bought the dish soap for $2.00 and it should make about 10-15 scrubs so this will make a great Christmas gift.
Here is the file for the My Digital Studio tag that I made for it. Just cut it out with your Circle Framelits or 2 1/2″ Circle Punch.
And hey, FYI, the Early Espresso Tulle that I used is actually on the Clearance Rack 60% off!

Keep the emails and Facebook messages coming guys! I really love answering your questions every Thursday!
