Scor-Pal and American Crafts Blog Hop


Welcome everyone!  I'm glad you have joined us for a terrific blog hop featuring Scor-Pal and American Crafts.  Be sure to check out all of the details and your chance to win prizes on either blog.  If you came here from Leslie Ashe's fabulous blog then you are on the right track!
 
Here is a list of participants:

Lisa Andrews (You Are Here)
 
   
This time I decided to make a gift set for my BFF.  I am calling it "Tea & Jam".  I have a lot of things going on this time so please bare with me, this is a long post!  All the designer paper used is from American Crafts, Freshly Squeezed collection.


My first project is a 3x3 Notecard Holder and Cards.  The tutorial for it is HERE.  I changed the dimensions a little.  The size of my card stock is 10 1/2 x 5 1/2.  Score as directed but also score at 4" and 3" making sure the paper is aligned on the top and right fence.  The score lines that I added are for the flap of the lid.

The cards are 3" x 3" and decorated simply.



Here is the "Jam" part of my project.  I made some yummy cherry jam. The recipe is very simple, just boil 3 cups of pitted cherries with 4 cups of sugar until the consistency you like for jam!  Boil your canning jars according to manufacturers directions and add hot jam.  To decorate my jar, I added a circle of cherry paper from American Crafts (Freshly Squeezed) to the top of the jar and created a rosette and belly band around the jar, then added a pretty bow! 



Next was the "Tea" Box.  The tutorial for the Secret Box can be found HERE.

Lastly, every gift needs a pretty card so that is my final project. 


Project Recipe:

American Crafts, Freshly Squeezed collected (paper, chipboard letter and stickers)
