This is a thrilling one for me:
1. it's my first inspiration week as part of the lawn fawn design team
2. it's my birthday today
3. my sister just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last night, and I will be holding that bundle of sweetness in a few hours - swoon!
On to the craft! haha. I am helping to show off the new "summertime charm" set by lawn fawn. I made my own jar 'o jam by hand-drawing a little squiggly line near the top of the jar (with a memento ink marker, so I could copic-color it in with no bleeding.) The sentiment on the jam jar label was printed on the computer, in a font that I thought looked handwritten (if your handwriting looks that pretty - kudos, and do that instead. I love seeing pretty handwriting mixed in with stamps.) I added the scallop on the top of the label, but it would look adorable stamped right under the jar lid too.
I used patterned paper and stickers from the pink lemonade collection - aren't they a breath of fresh air? I especially love this cute little floral. And, the lawn trimmings I used to tie around the jar lid is amazing. I love how stiff it is, and how it holds its shape perfectly.
I couldn't help but stick a cut strawberry right next to my punny sentiment (groan. sorry, but you know how much I love these - you *may* be seeing another custom one this week.) The strawberry was smothered in glossy accents to add a bit more dimension and texture to the card.
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I may be a little giddy this morning, from the excitement of presenting new lawn fawn stuff along with the other talented girls!
