A jar of joy

The moment I saw the Jars of Joy Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, I knew I wanted to play along. I also knew that I had the perfect jar to use.... the little chipboard one that came in my Pretty Party Crate Paper chipboard set.

I decided to pair it with some coordinating Crate Paper patterned paper, as well as a sheet of Christmas paper from My Mind's Eye.


I also used Papertrey Ink cardstock (rustic white), stamps (love lives here: holidays), button and dies (limitless layers: ovals 3.5"). I was pleased with how perfectly the sentiment fit on the jar!

I decided to also make this for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: The Inside Edition (where we were challenged to stamp on the inside of our cards). I used another sentiment and boughs from LLH: Holidays.


Thanks for looking!

A jar of joy is right! This is so lovely. I have a real soft spot for mason jars. Love the bottled sentiment. SO clever you are.

I love how your jar is tall and lean, it looks great with the holly and the sentiment stamped right on it!
