Are you enjoying all of the JustRite projects the Stamper's Dream DT have been sharing? It is always so fun to see all the different styles and projects achieved from the same stamp set! :-)
I used the Preserves Borders & Centers set for my project. I don't actually do a lot of canning (o.k....who am I kidding...I don't do ANY canning Bwahahahaa!), but I saw so many possibilities for this set that would work for things I actually do! LOL!
I thought the mason jar image would work perfectly for a "Cookies in a Jar" gift ensemble!
I stamped the main image (and the matching decorative border) onto Kraft c.s. and colored it in with my copics.
I was going to hand write the work cookies on the jar label, but then remembered the Recipe Borders and Centers set and thought there might be a cookie word in it. Yep!! I was right!! The stamp actually says Cookies & Cakes...and I only wanted the cookies part, so here is how I made it work for me. I put the Cookies & Cakes stamp on my Rectangle Stamper block, inked up only the cookies word (I used the tip of a Memento Dew Drop ink pad), and then used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the word correctly. It worked like a charm...and looks a TON better than my handwriting! :-)
For the inside, I decorated the baking instructions (which I printed on my computer). The recipe is called "Cranberry Hootycreeks"...and it is a cookie recipe I chose solely for the name!! It cracks me up every time I see it!!! In addition to having the BEST name...the cookies are absolutely delicious! I found this particular recipe on a site called Recipe Goldmine. HERE is the link to a whole collection of different Gifts in a Jar (soups, cookies, & much more).
Thanks for stopping by today! ~Laurie
