Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Treat Jars

I have an extra Lindsay's Stamp Stuff project to share with you this week. You may remember the altered canning jar that I made for giving Sugared Cinnamon Almonds to my daughter's teachers, the mail man, and other people that I wanted to give a little something to. The jar I used for my initial idea ended up being a little big. This week end I altered 9 smaller jars to use instead. I followed my initial idea but made everything on a smaller scale.






I made 4 pounds of the Sugared Cinnamon Almonds using my Nesco on Sunday. The Nesco is large enough that I could do all of them at once. I am planning to make some treat bags to give out some of the rest of the nuts. (Or, at least that is the plan. I am running out of time and my nuts are some how disappearing!)


I didn't have a post for the Sentimental Sundays Challenge this week. The theme this week is "Inspired by Song". Join in the fun for your chance to win 4 digital sentiment sets & a custom signature and watermark from Raindrop Echo Designs. My project is inspired by song too - Santa Claus is Coming to Town. Doesn't it look like he is saying "You Better Not Pout" or "You Better Not Eat all the Nuts"?

Thank you for stopping by today!


Supplies:
  • Stamps: Christmas Potpourri Bingo cards by Lindsay's Stamp Stuff on shophomemade.com, Vintage Christmas Labels by Lindsay's Stamp Stuff on mygrafico.com
  • Papers & CS: Stampin' Up Dashing DP & Chocolate Chip CS, PTI dark chocolate CS, Georgia Pacific CS

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response .

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time

Wow Cheryl I can almost smell the cinnamon on those sugared almonds they look delicious, all who receive this little pressie will love it.

Annika said…
Nuts are my BIG weakness!! Usually I try to steer clear from them (due to expanding derrier) but at Christmas time the caution kinda flies out of window. So I'm not sure any of those almonds would make their way into these gorgeous jars in our house..
And I have no ida what is Nesco, lol
Have a wondeful Christmas time!
Hugs
Annika

Anne Marie said…
4 pounds of sugared cinnamon almonds??? Holy cow, I'm moving in! :) I love all of the little jars , they still maintain all of the character of the original. Although somehow, Mr. Santa is warning me about over-indulging in all of the holiday goodies. Doesn't he know calories don't count in December?? :)
Super cute! I love working with jars!! Thanks for sharing!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
