Summer Wishes in a Jar

~ Heart 2 Heart ABC {anything but a card} Challenge ~



I enjoy making cards and scrapbooking my photo's, but I especially love creating projects from found or recycled products. For this week's challenge over at H2H, I wanted to create a jar to showcase some snap shots from this summer and fill it with our memories!

The Ball jar has been hiding in the back of my pantry for some time now. I created a four panel piece of card stock that is decorated with Splendor papers, family pics and stamped images from Hot Diggity. I also stamped tiny bumble bees and adhered them inside the jar with a tiny bit of liquid glass. It reminds me of summers back east as a little girl trying to catch fire flies. That is also how I arrived at the tag description of "capture summer wishes". It will be an ongoing project this summer adding more memories that we have yet to make.

I topped off the jar with circle paper flowers, or as I learned from Tresa Black this weekend "lollipop flowers". I adorned it with some sheer and grosgrain ribbons.

You have inspired me. I think I will make a jar and fill it with "table talk" ideas for our family dinners. Thank you.
