NKY WINS 25 Cent Aution at Legends

The auction is coming up again and I thought I'd share a little of what I've been working on. This is a gift jar inspired by a link a friend sent me. I plan on doing some more filled with journaling prompts, which is what the link showed. But for auction, the crowd seems a little less crafty so I'll fill this one with candy and promote it as a Mothers' Day gift.
Here you can see some of the lid detail. I distressed most all the paper. For the lid, I used the reverse side of the paper, clear embossed a butterfly on it and swiped some dreamcoat paint lightly over it to make it pop.
The lid itself is sponged with brown stazon and has a couple more paint swipes along the edges.

This is a write on, wipe off memo board made simply with a 12x12 layout frame. The glass simply wipes clean just like a white board.
All paper, ink, stamps & embellishment products used in these two projects are Close to My Heart. The frame & jar came from Hobby Lobby.
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a pretty jar! And I like the 12x12 memo board framed too!

  2. Thanks, Barb. I'm trying to get that vintage look that you are so stankin' good at!! I'll bring the memo board tomorrow night. It's much better in person. When I showed Ramona I almost didn't get it back, LOL!!
