Yellow Jar Kit & sample projects.....

Hi everyone, today I have a brand new kit up in the shop called Yellow Jar Kit.  At this time of year I start making more and more cards to add to my stash.  I like to use these as Christmas gifts & package them up in little sets.  The card gifts are still a hot item and I'm sure my family and friends that receive them every year would be disappointed if the package of cards wasn't there for them.  I know many of you like to make cards as gifts too so this kit might be right up your alley.  

The kit contains card bases, cut patterned paper in many styles, sacks to use as envies or packaging and lots and lots of embellishments.  There's enough product to make at least 6 cards which equals out to about $2 bucks a card.  There will be plenty of leftover items to create more cards when combined with your own stamps or scrapbooking/crafty items.  
 I really love the little sack of gold sequins and yellow flower sequins.  They add such a fun sparkle to projects.
 Just for fun I added in a watercolored mason jar.  I left the piece of paper untrimmed so that you can use it in various ways.  I have some fun samples to show you below.  The fun little mix of papers offers lots of variety...they're double sided for lots of pattern choices.  There's October Afternoon, Sassafras, and Studio Calico.
 The card bases have been cut and folded for you.  I included vellum envelopes for you to try out as I love being able to see the card front inside.  There's a total of 4...the sacks are intended to be used for some card packaging too.
 On to a few projects to show you how you can use the yellow jar.  Here I made a gift sack that can be used to hold some cards as gifts, a single card or a small gift item such as a notepad or candy bar.
 I love the hints of yellow from the Washi (included in the kit), the yellow flower and the yellow stitching.  See that stamp...you just got a major sneak peek of the Life Pages stamp set from the September Gossamer Blue release coming up.  Just the sentiment, not the jar. I think the jar is from Inkadinkado.
 Here I cut around the jar to make a fun die cut popped up on the card.  The papers and washi and all the other goodies are from the card kit.
 I love the layered tags with all the messy little trims and such.  I typed the sentiment on my vintage typewriter.
 This next project would make a fun teacher gift.  The packaging is a library pocket with a tag and another little surprise.
 You take out the library card and it's a bookmark.  This can be used separately and the recipient is still left with a cute tag that stays in the pocket.  You can write a fun message on the large manila tag. A clear sack with some of the sequins makes for a shiny finishing touch.
 Love the little snippets of Washi tape on all the projects.  I used yellow stitching too on the library card/bookmark.
Hope you enjoy!  You can find the kit in the shop at this link.  Thanks for stopping by.
