Young Living Essential Oils Giveaway!

Good morning, all! Today I am excited to announce an awesome giveaway both on my blog and my friend, Stephanie Howell's blog!

Let me take you back about a year ago when I was experiencing some health issues and traditional medications were not doing much for me. I had heard of essential oils and was very intrigued to learn more. I got to a point where I was willing to try just about anything so I purchased a premium starter kit from Young Living and gave it a whirl. I quickly discovered that most of the essential oils I tried were making a huge difference for the health issues I was experiencing. I was using them DAILY and the rest of my family was using them too. We were using them for issues like stress, sleep, headaches, anxiety, coughs, PMS, indigestion, eczema, wheezing and even cleaning. I also started slowly replacing store bought products with DIY essential oil concoctions - things like foaming hand soap, sugar scrubs, moisturizer, hand sanitizer and more - I was making it for mere pennies and saving money in the process. The initial investment I made was more than paying for itself.



Young Living has a premium starter kit that includes 11 different essential oils, some sample packets plus a diffuser. There are several ways to use essential oils: aromatically (diffuser or inhaling), topically (rubbing into the feet or parts of the body) and some use oils that are generally regarded as food safe internally (examples: citrus oils like Lemon, Lime, Orange and Peppermint). When you purchase a starter kit, you become a wholesale member and can purchase oils/products at 24%.



Be sure to visit Stephanie's blog where we are giving away 5 ml bottles of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint oils! And please leave a comment here to be entered to win a 5 ml bottle of Thieves essential oil! The giveaway will be open until next Friday, December 12th (international entries are welcome!)

Additionally, if you would some more information about essential oils, I'm hosting an online Essential Oils 101 class with my team on Thursday, December 11th at 8:00 p.m. CST. If you would like to learn more information in a fun, no-pressure way please email me at cornellgj@yahoo.com and I'll get you invited to the class on Facebook!

Gossamer Blue: December Memories Inspiration Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Gossamer Blue December Memories Inspiration Blog Hop! Several members of the design team are sharing our ideas with the Gossamer Blue album kit. Be sure to check out my fellow team members for lots of inspiration!

Here's what I do... December is usually an incredibly busy and stressful month so I throw the "daily" idea out the window and make it more about 31 memories of the month. Then, I don't find myself stressing about trying to work on a page of the album every day and I'm not stretching to make up something if we don't do anything on a particular day in December. There are many days where we have more than one memory too.

Here's a peek at my cover this year.... I love this exclusive album and the gold doily had to be a focal point... I jazzed it up with wood veneer and flair.



And here's a look at the inside so far... I honestly didn't do much yet besides set up pages 1-10 with the addition of the "Get Happy" collection wood veneer numbers. I'll add in a lot of details later and make some cover pages as I go.

Webster's Pages: Gingerbread Joy

Today I have a new layout to share featuring the "Gingerbread Village" collection from Webster's Pages. This collection was perfect to use for a layout about creating a gingerbread house! We have started a tradition where we put together our house with my mom. It's very fun to do together!


I cut the ornaments out of the patterned paper in the collection using my Cameo. Then I backed each ornament with vellum. The bow at the top of the gold ornament is vellum and part of the "All That Glitters" collection.


I cut my title using my Cameo and green cardstock. The little "Joy" stickers are mini alphabet stickers. 


Thanks for stopping by today! :)

Gossamer Blue: Love You & Blog Hop


Today the Gossamer Blue team is showcasing projects we created with the November kits. This layout was created using only the main kit. We were out and about on a gorgeous fall day last month and snapped this photo on my phone. I really loved the exclusive paper I used for the background, designed by One Little Bird.


The Gossamer Blue kits always include exclusive printables and I cut out the circle to use my journaling.


For the title, I used one of the exclusive cut files and then punched out some leaves to draw out the golden color in the background paper. 


And here's the rest of the team's projects you can hop around and visit their blogs:

Webster's Pages: Our Family

Good morning! Today I have a new layout to share for Webster's Pages and the gorgeous new collection "The Nest", designed by Brandin O'Neill. We recently had family photos taken by my good friend, Carrie Krupke. I absolutely adored this photo - the trees were just the perfect shade of yellow. It was a beautiful day. I knew I wanted this one to be the first photo I scrapped.


I love the warm colors in this collection and I helped draw it out the orange in our photos with orange cardstock. 


I created a simple grid so I could highlight the frames (easily cut out of one of the patterned papers). And I just adore the vellum - perfect for adding a softness to the layout.


Thanks for stopping by today!

Gossamer Blue: Happy Halloween

Good morning! I have one more layout to share with you using the October Gossamer Blue kits - this one focuses on the Life Pages themed add-on with my favorite orange, black and white patterned papers thrown in from the rest of the kits. These are photos from last Halloween when we went to Night Eyes at our local zoo.

I created a couple focal points with the cut out spider webs.


The middle of each spider web is embellished with layered die-cuts and stickers.


I also used my Cameo to cut out the "halloween" part of the title.


I love being able to use so many photos on a two-page layout. 


Thanks for stopping by today!
