Hope you all had a nice bank holiday. The weather wasn't great here but at least we did have nice weather when we went to Surrey to visit our family.
We played with the Perfectly Preserved Stamp set today and the matching Cannery Framelits. They are available to purchase from 1st September which is this saturday - Can you believe it will be September?
The papers used are the Orchard Harvest.
While I was making the gift basket, I found a couple of kilner jars left over, so I thought I would fill them with mini gift tags.
I kept to the same colours as the papers, More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Very Vanilla.
One of the papers has matching pears, so I changed the colours of the class card to match the jar of tags.
If you don't already have a demonstrator,
Email me if you would like a copy of the New Autumn/Winter Catalogue.
Thanks for looking,

Morning Everyone! Gosh its been a busy Summer. There I thought my two sons didn't need me to entertain them this year, but lucky old me they still want their mum to take them out! It's been lovely......They are 16 & 17 hee hee.
My Youngest got his GCSE & AS Level results this past week and he passed them all. He got 9 A Star's and 3 A's plus A's in both the AS Level's. We are so very proud of him. I was pleased that I didn't go on the Incentive Trips, I kept the snacks coming! Boy my Boys can eat!!!!
I finally had a chance to play with my Preorder from the Huge Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue. It goes LIVE to you on the 1st September and it is Gorgeous!
Some of you might know we have allotments and grow some lovely veggies. Well this summer we have been busy preserving some of the produce. We made Marrow Chutney, Brown Sauce (Perfect for Bacon Butties!), Blackcurrant Jam, Blackcurrant Jelly and Redcurrant Jelly, so far.
We are off to visit our family today and we are taking some goodies with us. I used some new fabric coming in the seasonal catalogue and the scallop circle die, to make the covers for the jars. They were finished off with some lucky limeade ribbon.
The stamp set is called Perfectly Preserved! It has matching framelits WhooHoo! Look at the little Jam Jar die cut with the framelits, its so diddie.
You can see the decorated jars here.
I found some lovely baskets from NEXT and made a padded liner with the rest of the fabric, plus a little card to match.
Thanks for looking.

More reasons to smile! My son passed his Car Theory Test on Thursday which is a great reason to smile. He has booked his Driving Test now, which is such good news, so fingers crossed. They grow up so quickly don't they? Our other son won't be far behind, it will be his turn next year. There will be a bit of competition for borrowing Mum & Dads car!!!! Mmm.....
Another Reason to Smile is that I received my copy of the New Autumn/Winter Catalogue while we were away on holiday. Oh MY Goodness are you all in for a Treat!
It has 40 A4 pages!!!!!
It is full to the brim with Christmas, Halloween, Gift Packaging and Calendars, tons of new gorgeous embellishments, ribbon and the list goes on.....
Email me to get your copy.
You can order from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue on the 1st September.
Back to this Stamp Class. We will be making these next week using the Reason to Smile stamp set that you can earn for FREE with a £60 Order, free shipping from me.
Or you can purchase just the stamp set for £14.95 Clear Version or £18.95 Wood Version.
This stamp set is a two step stamp set and the bold image is gorgeous as it is made up of tiny dots which makes a lighter image when stamped under the outline image in the same colour, or why not use two co-ordinating colours.
The Matching Gift Bag has a larger capacity for lots of goodies.
Well we are off to the allotment to pick more black currants. My hubbie has made lots of jams already.
Thanks for looking,
