Hot Peach Jam Gifts

You might remember this post where I talked about making Hot Peach Jam.


Well I got out those jam jars again and am using them for neighbor gifts. I had to laugh at my husband last night because when the neighbors came over with their usual cracker and cheese assortment and a bottle of wine, Eric said *time for the annual cracker exchange*. LOL, he's right...seems we always do some kind of goodies and crackers!! So this year it was my Hot Peach Jam along with a sleeve of crackers and a block of cream cheese. Instant appetizers for those long winter afternoons or when unexpected company arrives.
This year I added in my awesome Cocktail Crackers in these fun cone bags with a simple ribbon. I made them for all the male teachers and also added them in with the goodies mentioned above. They were a huge hit and everyone requested the recipe. I suppooooose that I could be persuaded to share the recipe if I get enough requests...hint hint.
And I just had to add this little sneak peek of some new Hot Peach Jam lid toppers that I'm working on. I was going to do this for Christmas but they are so so PEACHY KEEN cute that I have to save them for Spring gifts. I have a cute card idea to attach with it so that will be another post. But I wanted you to see one of Karen Lockhart's new images all colored up cute. These PEACHES are adorable!!! Karen captured the perfect essence of a juicy ripe peach and the darling lettuce bowl just finishes them off! I know I will be using this stamp a ton, especially for my Hot Peach Jam jars. The peaches were colored in with Copic markers. I love how by using just a few shades of markers, you can achieve such depth and three dimension. I also used a circle Spellbinder's Die Template to cut out the peach. While it was still in the template, I airbrushed the circle image with a peach colored marker. I love that crisp white edge the die template leaves. The image was then matted on a Groovy Guava scallop cut Spellbinder's Die Template. Groovy Guave ribbon from Stampin' Up! finishes off the jar.

Thank for the wonderful pictures of your creations. They inspire me and put me in the holiday spirit. The recipe for the crackers would be lovely to have on hand. I remember your post about the hot jam, as I love to make jams. If I remember it is a family recipe. I don't know if you share it, but I would love that recipe as well. I make plum jam every year and then alternate a new jam each year...pineapple/stawberry...peach....and this year pluot!
Merry Christmas and thank you for this blog!
