RePurposed Sugar Container

What does one do with an empty Truvia container?!?!
Make a Sugar Container....
and make it pretty!!!!
We have a 'Coffee, Tea & Cocoa Bar' at our home - I love variety and have a ton of each!  So we also offer sweatners in varying needs... my Diabetic husband uses Truvia and handed me an empty container one day... I have a bowl for my sugar but wanted something better... HERE it is!!
Now we will have the Truvia container that is ideal
with a Pop Up lid for our Sugar...
what a fun way to re-purpose this container!!
Cleaning out the container - I then went to town on the lid....
The Tea for Two Designer Series Paper (Spring Mini) is soooo darling!  Vintage with a pretty mixed pattern/quilted look...
This paper is Double Sided (like all of our DSP) and I used the Cameo Coral polka dot side for the base!  The 2-1/2" circle punch fits perfectly on the Jumbo Sticky Rounds (Spring and Holiday Minis) to adhere directly to the lid!

Flipping the paper over with this punched out 2-3/8" scallop circle punch is easy and coordinates perfectly!!
Using the new Early Espresso firm ink pads - they are sooo juicy that they will actually - if you move quickly - allow you to emboss!!  (WOW!!) This Morning Cup stamp set fits me for my hot drinks (I'm usually cold - so hot drinks help me out - lol.)  Iridescent Ice embossing powder adds a dash of bling to this cup and sentiment... the Heat Gun is easier than ever to use and embossing on Vellum (Idea Book & Catalog for both) is easy peasy, lemon squeezey!
Our Stampin' Write Markers are a fun way to color in the cups... they also coordinate with the colors in the papers!
Another Jumbo Sticky Round (Spring Mini) adheres this embossed Vellum piece across the top!
Wrapping a Strip around the bottle is a fun way to continue the patterns... this 1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch centers and covers the edges as they meet!  This Punched 'S' for sugar comes out easy on card stock with our Big Shot... rubbing the S into the Marina Mist ink pad and embossing with more Iridescent Ice embossing powder continues the fun bling!
How Sweet It Is...
Re-Using this container while making it pretty...
I LOVE it!!

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
