CHF Summer Blog Hop Week 3--ATC

Mondays are so much more enjoyable with these summer blog hops, don't you agree? Today kicks off week #3 and this week our focus is on the ATC (All Things Considered) line. I love these stamp sets!! You should have landed here after visiting Lisa's blog.

If the Summer Fling is completely news to you, then check out this post for full details. You don't want to miss the sales and prizes each week this summer.

For my sample this week I worked with the Can It set. If you have visited my blog for any length of time then you know I love to can! I've put up my first batches of jam and am waiting ever so patiently for the produce in the area to ripen so I can do more. I give a lot of it away and being a paper crafter means I can't just hand someone a jar, it neeeeeds to be gussied up, lol. I made this cute holder for my latest jam, strawberry-rhubarb.
I modified the dimensions on this box to create a shorter version without a top. The box was done in kraft cardstock and covered with some DCWV Farmers Market DP. I edged the top of the box with the Fence border punch from Martha Stewart. The tag stamp in this set is so versatile, I stamped it on vanilla paper and added the basket stamp over top. When cut out, the tag image looks like a real tag, I love it! The sentiment is from the same set, that is one of the great features with these ATC sets, they are complete with images and sentiments that work together.
Here is a side view of the box.

this project is right up my alley as I enjoy giving my canned goods to friends and family as well. Combine that with some cute homemade packaging, you've got a winner!! I'm loving the canned set and am thinking this is the set that's next on my list of sets to buy. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful project and for the inspiration!
Blessings to you~ Birgit

I think the packaging is sometimes just as important as the gift inside. It definitely says that the person receiving this darling little gift is highly thought of. WOW - super cute!!

Strawberry-rhubarb jam, yum! And what a lovely presentation! I love this stamp set -- you're right, it's great that such clever sentiments come with the images.

Christine said...

This is gorgeous! I like making jam but not much other canning. Hopefuly, next time I make it to "Fruit Way" in Utah, they'll be some yummy stuff for me to make into jam!!!

Blessings,
Christine
