It's Canning Season!

Hello, and happy Friday!  It's canning season here in my neck of the woods.  I don't can, but I sure love it when my friends do, and bring me some canned goods.  It seems you can can just about anything -- pickles, beets, watermelon, peaches, green beans, even venison.  I have a fondness for canning jars, so I've loved these canning jar files from My Scrap Chick for a long time now.  They were one of the first files I ever bought from the company.  Combine them with some 3 Girl JAM ribbon, and these could win blue ribbons at the fair!


I used the My Scrap Chick Canning Jars/Preserves cutting files. There are 3 different patterns.  I used 2 of them.  On two of the cards, I added some Gold Crown 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon from the Royal Bundle
Here's a couple of close ups:

On this second card, I used a Unity Stamp of the Week for the sentiment.
The papers for these cards are a retired pack from Close To My Heart.  I thought they worked well for these canning jars.
Today is my last post for My Scrap Chick.  I have very much enjoyed working with their incredible files.  This may be my last design team project, but you will definitely see more My Scrap Chick files on my blog.  I love their files as much now as I did when I first discovered them.  They are a great company.  And, I don't have to tell you how much I LOVE 3 Girl JAM ribbon!

  2. Very cute jars cards. Canning is a lot of work. I did it years ago and it is truly a work of love. Now I am like you. Making canning jars is a much better and faster idea.
