For those of you that are still on the fence about digis (I still am in some ways...I like to have stamps IN my hands!!!) is an example of one of the things you can do with a Digi Image!

Using Microsoft Word (or whatever software you're comforatable with) I shrunk Road Hawg down small enough to fit on the cover of this tiny Lip Balm Container (scroll down for more info on that). I printed him, along with the words, onto adhesive-backed label paper and punched it out with my circle punch!

As some of you may know, one of the best things about being on a motorcycle is feeling the wind in your face!! That sort of freedom comes with the cost of chapped lips (and cheeks too, but we're here to talk about the lips!!) I have several friends that are pretty serious about riding and I thought these would make a great gift for them!

This one here is for my pal, Monique (For the Love Of Paper)! She is a very talented crafter
as well so I wanted to make it 'SNAZZY'!!

I used the Peek-A-Boo Box from the SCS Tutorial which you can find here! It fits these little Lip Balms PERFECTLY!!

Here is the complete set with the card I made using Crafty Taglines from There She Goes!

Now onto the Lip Balm! I bought the Lip Balm Kit from My Favorite Things! There is a recipe you can get right on the site, however, I found it to be VERY waxy. I ended up adding more coconut oil, some olive oil, and shea butter to the recipe to get to a texture I was happy with!! I ended up with way more balm than I had containers for as well, of course, but I had several extra brad containers from CTMH, and although smaller, they worked very well.

This also qualifies for the 3-D Challenge over at Our Creative Corner!!

Well thanks so much for stoppin' in and don't forget to check out the sale at Totally Stampalicious!
