Emma's Paperie: J is for Jam

So awhile back I shared how the girls and I had gone on a strawberry picking adventure and the day after we got home, we made strawberry jam. Never in my lifetime had I gone to pick strawberries and I certainly had never made jam. Addicted, I tell you. There's something so satisfying about picking fruit yourself and then turning it into something delicious to treat your family. And the whole experience was just wonderful for the girls - they still talk about crushing the strawberries and adding the sugar to them. Love. We are definitely making strawberry picking and jam making a family tradition each summer.

At Emma's Paperie, the designers were challenged to create a project inspired by a book. I collect vintage children's books and some of my favorite finds are the alphabet books. A popular phrase in these books is "J is for Jam" so I took that inspiration for my title plus used the Pretty Party collection by Crate Paper which had pretty cute strawberry images with a vintage vibe.

That mason jar just kills me...

I was able to collage 6 wallet size photos (2 x 3) on the polka dot paper. I just love using multiple photos to tell the whole story. 

And here are the vintage books I used as inspiration...
