Thursday Treat…Jar of Love


Can you guess who I made this for? If you guessed my daughter, you would be right!  I had this packed away in my suitcase waiting to give it to her today. This is the day she has been preparing for…she moves in to her dorm and is an official college student!  I filled this jar with hugs and kisses to leave with her as we head back to our hotel. She already knows how much we love her but, it’s always nice to have a “sweet” reminder.  And let’s face it…this stamp set and matching framelits are just so stinkin’ cute I couldn’t wait to try them out.  LOL  I think it makes a cute tag for a jar!


I used momento black, smokey slate, and night of navy inks to stamp the jar, handles, and lid on whisper white cardstock.  I stamped the hearts in melon mambo ink then stamped the sentiment on top in night of navy.  I cut all 3 pieces out with the matching framelits using the Big Shot. I glued the pieces together and attached it to the jar with night of navy solid bakers twine.  It was easy to decorate the lid on the jar.  I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut the perfect size circle out of some Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I attached it to the lid with glue dots then wrapped the rim with the Floral Boutique Designer Washi Tape.  Think of all the fun gifts you can put in a jar for fun holiday gifts!  My mind is spinning!  There are 3 different size jars in the stamp set with lots of extras to decorate.  I used the middle sized jar for my tag today.


My daughter isn’t the only one getting a special treat because I am giving away some “blog candy” to a lucky winner! Just leave me a comment with the total number of candy you think are in the jar.  You have until 9 PM (EST) on Sunday evening to leave a comment. (Limit 1 guess per person.) The person who comes closest will receive a special stampin’ treat from me… I will send you some handmade cards and matching envelopes. I will post the winner after I get back home on Monday.

Have a wonderful day!

Just Stampin’

  1. What a great idea! Will definitely do this for gifts. The tag looks so adorable and your jar looks so nicely put together. Your daughter will love it! My guess for candy is 112. Enjoy your day!

  2. This is just adorable Jeanie! I would guess there are….. hmmm…. 126 candies. I would have no problem eating them all! Hope that Kleenex is holding up for you!

    Have a safe trip back home. How far away is she?

  4. Jeanie, what a darling idea! My daughter will be a junior in college and far away as well (she is in New York and I am in Hawaii). I think I will surprise her with this in a care package. Thank you for a project to CASE.
