Wow, can you believe it is 2015?! Our Christmas break went way too fast, as usual, but we had such a fabulous time with family and friends. I hope that you did too! It's time for our first blog hop of the year from The Stamp Review Crew. For this hop we are using Perfect Pennants. This is one of my favorite sets of all time. It's so versatile!
I started the tradition last year of making a memory jar. Throughout the year, we wrote down funny things that the kids said and good things that happened in our family and put the slips of paper in a pretty jar that I decorated. We got a hotel room on New Year's Eve and had so much fun reading the memories of the year with the kids as we waited for the ball to drop. We even surprised them with the last one, telling them that we are taking our first family trip to Disney World! I wanted to make a new jar for this year, and Perfect Pennants was the perfect stamp set for this project!
The background star paper is a sneak peek at some SAB DSP. It is embossed white and you can sponge or brayer over it to reveal the pattern. I sponged So Saffron and Hello Honey over mine, then stamped some of the big stars from Perfect Pennants for some added variety. It looks even better in person!
Here is a look at the top. I thought the "Make a Wish" sentiment was quite appropriate considering we will be going to Disney this year and will have plenty of memories from there to fill our jar with!
I hope you enjoyed my project! I would really encourage you to do something like this with your family. Looking back on these cards in the years to come will be priceless!
