Sharing some product reviews!


Well i have been receiving lots of products for free or discounted from various companies to give my review! 

I am so excited, so lets get going with my first product. I have lots more to come so keep and eye out for them. I really hope you enjoy my reviews as much as i enjoy trying the products out to give you my review and to help you make a conscious decision before making a purchase.

Today's products were received from Influenster!

Curel® Itch Defense® Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray and the 
Curel® Itch Defense® Body Wash

I like both of these products because they are easy too use and they both make your skin soft and moisturized. 
The body wash is a soap-free formula that has a unique blend of gentle cleansers and skin conditioners. It is very easy to use. Just squeeze some out on your puffy or wash cloth and lather up, it feels nice and makes your skin feel soft and it has a very nice faint orange scent.

The itch defense moisturizer is a spray that you do not have to shake, which, is nice. 
Although it comes out in a stream, i think it would be a lot nicer if it would come out as a misty spray instead. I use this after showering to keep my skin moisturized. Just spray and rub it in, It is odor free, grease free and easily soaks in to your skin leaving your skin feeling soft and hydrated. 

If you are looking to moisturize your skin, i would definitely recommend both of the Curel Itch Defense products.

*I received these products complimentary for testing purposes.

Influenster Voxbox and unboxing

I was chosen by Influenster too review the Tastykake minis.
I received the chocolate swirly cupkakes which are made with Hershey's cocoa, they also have peanut butter and koffee.

This is what i received

Although, I cannot eat them because I have celiac, I have shared them with family and friends for my review.

So, I have received very positive reviews from everyone! They like that they are small for a fun little snack, kids like them because they are so easy to hold onto! I think they are really cute! Maybe they will come out with some gluten free kakes! They have a great chocolate flavor and they SMELL amazing! (like fudgy brownies!)

See my unboxing video HERE or above.

Gelato Thank you card

Hello again!

Today i have another Thank You card!
I decided to play around with my Gelatos.
I purchased these last year and have finally had 
some time to play around with them.
I had cut a bunch of "Thank Yous" out with
my Cricut Explore using white cardstock.  I figured i could just color them to make them whatever color i wanted.
  I need to build up a stash of
Thank You and Birthday cards, so this is 
where i am starting.

So here is my first attempt at Gelatos
and this was actually my first try with the 
"thank yous" that i had cut as well.

Entered at

I used water color paper added the Gelatos, misted with water,
then smeared it with the paint brush.
For the "thank you" i used zing white embossing powder to make it pop.
Added the super cute sequins that i picked up at Walmart. Check out my Haul video to see the bag full of mixed sequins i purchased, linked on the left sidebar. 
It is mounted on black cardstock.

I just love this card, i wasn't sure about it at first. But after i added the thank you and sequins i fell in love with it!

Thank you card

Hello my friends!
Today i have a "Thank You" card!

I received a very nice birthday surprise from
one of my boating friends, so I wanted
to make a thank you card for them.

I used my Explore and design space,
I am starting to really like using it
I didn't like it at first, but after i got
a new iPad and started playing around with it
I have finally gotten the hang of it.

I have really been wanting to cut out words with it,
since I have seen lots of crafty bloggers using dies
and i just didn't want to buy dies when
i have several cutting machines that i should
be able to use to cut the words out.

So here is what i came up with!

Entered at:

I cut the banners and "thank you" using design space.
The anchor was cut with a Momenta cut and emboss die.
I heat embossed the "thank you" with Stampin' Up embossing powder and added some sequins.
 I faux stitched the banners with a white jelly roll pen and blue pigma micron pen.
The designer paper is from Carta Bella "Ahoy There" 6x6 paper pad.
