What an exciting week we’ve had here at Bramble Berry! I’ve enjoyed watching the hundreds of photos coming in from our newest Make it Monday contest and awed and inspired by your creativity. We still have another week to go and I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us. We’ve also released another new SQTV episode featuring Jeanee from Dirty Laundry — check it out here. Are you ready for this weeks winner? Check below…
This week’s photo comes to us from Roseanne of Monument Soapworks. We are featuring her ‘Sweet Tart’ Valentine’s soap that uses the 12 Bar Round Silicone Mold to make the cold process bars which are then embedded with the most adorable little M&P hearts (reminds us of this Valentine’s soap tutorial from last year using the Tiny Hearts mold). I thought it was just totally adorable and couldn’t get enough of all the pretty pink. Thank you so much for sharing your soap with us, Roseanne. Watch for that special little package being sent your way!

Congratulations on winning this week. The soaps are very beautiful. Was it very hard to make these? I am new at making soap and I am trying different ideas out too.
Did you freeze the embeds before adding the cold process to them since the embeds are made of glycerin?
Thank for sharing with us.

You actually don’t need to freeze the embeds at all before you embed them into a cold process recipe. Here is a recipe that we made last year where we did something very similar:

I hope this helps! 🙂
