NEW Stamp Release and Project Tuesday - S'mores in a Jar

Hello blogging friends and thanks for stopping by!! I am SO excited to announce my next stamp release details. Samples will begin next Monday, October 5th – Friday – October 9th. We will have a blog hop that will kick off Friday night at 8 pm central. During release week, there will be some fun challenges along with games and giveaways - I hope you won’t miss it!!

My sample for today is a fun one!! Our September host Lisa Cook, over at Project Tuesday, has challenged us to create a S’mores in a Jar. We warmly invite you to play along, please use your favorite stamps and supplies.

After following the directions to fill my jar, it was time to decorate the outside of it. I created both the top label and tag on the computer. I then used my Martha Stewart Halloween fence punch and glued it around the bottom of my jar. A giant pumpkin was added using my pumpkin Nestabilities from Cut at Home. Cuppy was colored in using my Copics and cut out. I then replaced little Cuppy with a pumpkin and decorated it. Below you will find the directions for the s'mores in a jar.

Here are the directions: Reduce 1 sleeve of graham crackers to crumbs and layer the bottom of the 1 qt. jar. Place marshmallow peeps on top of the graham cracker crumbs. Carefully spoon 1/3 c. brown sugar into center of the peeps - pressing down to keep it snug. Layer the rest of the open space with 1 ½ c. of M&M’s. To finish, decorate the lid and add your tag with baking directions (see below).

Baking Directions: Empty the jar contents into a bowl. Snip the peeps into bits with kitchen sheers or cut up with a knife. Return the peep bits to the mixture and mix well. Melt ½ c. butter, add 1 t. vanilla. Pour this over the dry ingredients, mixing well. Pat into a greased 8x8 baking dish. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Cool and cut into bars. *Option: Leave the peeps whole; combine remaining ingredients and place the peeps on top; then bake as directed.
