Sunday School Craft Project – Cookies in a Jar

Published by under Uncategorized

Quick Note: $3.95 shipping on ALL US orders extended through Christmas Day!!! Details here.

In discussing a possible Christmas craft project with my Sunday School class of mid-elementary age children, they were unanimous in wanting to make a gift for their Moms. They asked to do candles again, but since we had done these candles as a Mother’s Day project already, I suggested we do Cookies in a Jar instead.  They were thrilled with that idea, so here’s the project I came up with that we’ll be doing tomorrow morning.  I think they’ll have fun creating their jars filled with ingredients and putting on the pretty finishing touches.  Take a look:

Cookie Jar 400590

This is the sample I made up for the kids to see.

I used standard quart mason jars and this recipe. I have used this recipe before on this project, and just as before, all the ingredients listed do NOT fit into a quart jar if you want to add raisins. To make room for the raisins, I decreased the oatmeal. Hope I didn’t mess up the texture of the cookies too much, but I guess my main concern was to get raisins in the jar for appearance sake — LOL — you can tell where my priorities lie when it comes to baking vs. crafting!

Once the jar was filled, I cut circles with my Circle Nesties to cover the jar top/lid.

Paper:  DIY Christmas by Simple Stories

Dies:  Circle Nesties

Cookie Tag CU 340530

The black tag is one of 12 included in the tag pack from the North Pole Collection by Kaiserscraft – perfect for this project!

The instructions on how to make the cookies was printed onto printer paper, cut and adhered to a piece of cardstock. They were hung with the twine that comes with the tags.

To make this all go together easily, run Scor Tape around the outer rim of the jar ring.  Then you can place your ribbon around the rim and it stays put while you tie your bow.  Doing it this way also allows you to remove the lid with the embellishments all in tact. You can then re-fill the bottle for another gift, ready to go, or just fill it with something pretty, put the lid on, and there you have a bit of holiday decor for your kitchen.

Tags: North Pole Tag Pack by Kaiserscraft

Cardstock: Core’dinations ColorCore Signature – Graphic 45 Lights (green) and Darks (red, black)

Ribbon: May Arts 5/8″ Burlap Center Stitch – Red, Green (took about 30″ to wrap around and tie the bow with tails)

Adhesive: Tape Runner, Scor Tape, Glue Dots, 3D Foam Squares

Cookie Elements 500402

These are the pieces I prepped for the kids – the circles for the jar tops, the recipes and the gift tags.

There really wasn’t much prep for this project. It came together pretty quickly.

Amy Bagged 400491

Once completed, the Cookies in a Jar and  dish towel will be gifted in a brown paper handled bag, with a bit of decoration.

The wooden spoon is held on with glue dots at the handle points.

The ribbon is tied on to the spoon.

And that card (purchased), so perfect for this project, is adhered with thin 3D Foam Squares.

The kids can write a little message and sign the inside.

Amy Cards 600318

LOVE these cards — note the year, 2014, on them.

I purchased these in a set of 12 (3 of each shown) from Amy Tedder at her NEW Etsy Shop, At Your Design. I purchased these cards ready made, and they came with nice envelopes.  However, you can also purchase just the digital images and do your own thing. Canvases are really hot now and Amy has some FABULOUS designs for wall hangings, etc. I did also purchase a digital piece of customized work from Amy, but it’s for a Christmas gift, so I can’t show it to you for a few days, but I will as soon as I can!  I love it!!! And I have plans for so many more personalized gifts from  Amy as well.  Check out At Your Design — I think it’ll get your wheels turning, too!

And, I might add, if you didn’t make the connection this is THE Amy behind all the wonderful JustRite stamp and die designs.  JustRite does have a few other designers (Becca Feeken and Samantha Walker), but the bulk of their work is created by Amy.  She’s so very talented and I was so pleased to see her open her very own Etsy Shop.  Best wishes, Amy !!!

Let it Snow – by Heidi Blankenship

Quick Note: $3.95 shipping on ALL US orders extended through Christmas Day!!! Details here.

We have another really WOW! project from Heidi today. The WOW! factor comes from all the gold, and who doesn’t LOVE gold! Yet it’s an easy card to create.  Those large gorgeous snowflakes are embossed in gold and matted in mirror gold paper. The same with the sentiment, Let it Snow. Honestly, with a simple change of sentiment, I see this as one gorgeous winter wedding card. It’s absolutely elegant. Take a look and see:

Today we have another quick and easy, flat for mailing Christmas card to share. Deb used some pretty sheets from one of the popular pads by Simple Stories, Cozy Christmas. These pads contain larger scaled, trendy prints and patterns that work so perfectly for a layout such as Deb used today. Once creating her card base, a simple sentiment circle was die cut, popped up a bit and adorned with some rhinestones and a little bow.  This is another great design for mass production! Take a look:

Quick and Easy Bottled Up Gift Ideas

Published by under Uncategorized

Quick Note: $3.95 shipping on ALL US orders extended!!! Details here.

Most recent mark-downs include ALL Christmas paper and Christmas stamps, and so much more!

Coffee Lovers Blog Candy still open.

We have some really fun quick gift ideas to share today that can really pack a punch once the bottles are all fancied up! I took the easy route by making  simple tags for syrup bottles that my husband likes to give out, Darsie created a truly WOW presentation for a jarred coffee drink and Holly created the sweetest small bottles filled with candy and decorated to the hilt with bits of this and that, gingerbread style. Hope these projects might give you some ideas for quick little gifts you may need. Take a look:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Quick and easy and not too fancy or frilly since my husband is the one giving these out.

All 9 tags made use the same supplies:

Paper: Joyous 6×6 by My Mind’s Eye

Stamps: Elegant Christmas Swirls by Becca Feeken for JustRite

Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Barn Door

Dies: Spellbinders Celebrations Pierced Squares and Circles, Standard Circle Nesties

Embellishments: Enamel DotsCozy Christmas by Simple Stories

Adhesives: Tape Runner, 3D Foam Squares

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s all 9 I made.

They measure 3 x 6″. So I just cut a 6×6″ sheet in half. No waste.

The MME papers are a bit thicker than some and of a good weight for these tags.

I love when all the syrup bottles are on our back counter with tags on, ready to go!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Once I have my 3×6″ sheet, I score it in half at 3″, then I use a Circle Nestie to cut the hole. You can vary the size hole based on the size of the neck on the bottle you are using.  These work for any type of bottles.  For a taller, narrower bottle, just make it longer, but you’d need larger paper sheets.

My sentiment strips were just all cut to 1.25″ wide. Then I stamped them all the same to save time, and hand cut the fish tails with my scissors. Nothing fancy.

A totally FUN project to fancy up a bottle of purchased food or drink!

NEW! and IN STOCK – Graphic 45′s Time To Flourish

We have some fabulous NEW product to show you this evening.  I wanted to get a card made with it, but just ran out of time, so decided to show you anyway, thinking some may want to get this while the $3.95 Flat Rate US shipping and discounted international shipping is still in effect (until Christmas). It’s really a great time to stock up on those heavier items, such as paper.

We are all giddy with delight over this new collection from Graphic 45 – Time to Flourish.

We have it in stock in 12×12, two versions of 8×8, 6×6, some smaller ephemera cards, chipboard sheets, 3 sets of cling rubber stamps, and 3 coordinated ribbon samplers that we made up here. Crafting HEAVEN, to say the least!

Here’s the link to the entire collection, and we’ll continue with just photos.

Flourish 8x8 500

The 12×12 and 8×8 Classic pads are like this – both the same.

Gorgeous florals and prints, as one would expect from Graphic 45.

Flourish 8x8 Calendar 500

This is the 8×8 Calendar pad.

Remember that calendar collection from a year or so ago — same idea!  There are 2 pages for each month.  The calendar is on the front and there is a coordinating design on the flip side.

And we do have some of the Graphic 45 Easel Albums left in 8×8.

Have a Merry Christmas – by Heidi Blankenship

Quick Note: $3.95 shipping on ALL US orders extended!!! Details here.

Most recent mark-downs include ALL Christmas paper and Christmas stamps, and so much more!

Coffee Lovers Hop and Blog Candy still open.

Heidi was having fun creating her Christmas card for today using a bubbly stencil by Prima and some crackle texture paste. She used Tim Holtz Distress Inks (currently reduced!) and created a watercolor wash in a pretty blue, added her textured bubbles, glitzed them up with some sparkles. The heat embossed focal image sentiment is in white.  A lot of fun things going on here, but still a card pretty flat for mailing for the holidays! Take a look:

Love this card design and I can see this for ANY occasion year round. Heidi used Extra Grand Holiday Sentiments, but using the companion set, Extra Grand Sentiments, allows you to use this same card design for occasions year round. LOVE that option!

You can find Heidi’s post here. (wonderful instruction included!)

Stamps: Extra Grand Holiday Sentiments small clear stamp set by JustRite
