Easter Jar

My project today is an Easter Jar that I filled with Jelly Beans.

To make this project you’ll need a half pint jar (wide mouth) and I found mine at Walmart.

I used the Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Paper from the Spring Catalog … along with the Paper Doilies.  To go around the jar .. you’ll need two of them.

The stamp sets are Teeny Tiny Wishes and Crosses of Hope and I stamped both of them with So Saffron ink.

To cover the lid of the jar I used a 3″ Circle … along with a Scallop Circle that I cut out with the Perfect Pennants Die.  The white Circle is 2-1/2″.

Here’s a video for ya …..

If you tried to watch my live stream on UStream last night .. I’m really sorry!! I’m still not sure if it was a UStream problem or Time Warner Cable.  I tried for 45 minutes to keep a connection.  It really could be my internet connection ….. because when we have a lot of rain .. we lose our phone, cable and internet and we’ve got a ton of snow still on the ground…even Miss Bella’s electric fence isn’t working.  It should melt this weekend and we’ll try again next week! 

If you registered for the Virtual Birthday Bash … your kits went in the mail today and you should have them a week before the class starts.  If you’re participating without a kit … you’ll receive access to the website right before it starts.

Thanks & have a great day!!

A note from Angie:

I’m personally super excited about the This and That Journal!!!   I’ve kept journals all my life …. way back before scrapbooking got really big.  I can’t wait to get my hands on them and because they are Stampin Up! product I can share mine with YOU!  I’m thinking a This and That Journal for Miss Bella would be just the ticket!!

Thanks & have a great day!!

p.s. Don’t forget that I’m offering Mystery Hostess Benefits … click here for all the details.

Mystery Stampin Up Hostess Benefits


Stampin’ Up! announced the Hostess Code and I’m ready to jump in (with two feet) and give it a try.  

Here’s how it works … 

If you’re placing an online order of less than $150 … will want to use the Hostess Code: AKA2TRET.  

If you’re ordering $150 .. you will not use the code because you’ll receive hostess benefits on your own order.

Once you place the order ….it will ship directly to you … from Stampin’ Up!  I’ll announce on April 1st who gets the hostess benefits.

Here’s a screenshot of how your screen will look when you’re placing the order.

A special note ….if you’ve been placing online orders with me … the only thing you need to do differently is add the hostess code ….. everything else works just the same.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thanks & have a great day!
