Peeps in a Jar – Easter S’mores.

I saw this project on a bunch of websites & made up some for Easter gifts for teachers & other special “peeps” :)

If you Google “Peeps in a jar” you’ll find lots of examples & methods for making these.  I combined a few & here’s what I did:

Crush 1 sleeve of graham crackers into crumbs & dump into the bottom of a canning jar – if you use ones with the wide mouths I would imagine it would be much easier, but I had these on hand.

Place your Peeps in the jar – against the side.  I used the end of a wooden spoon to smush the last one in. 

In the center of the Peeps place 1/3 cup of brown sugar.  This was easiest to do when I packed together several little clumps & dropped them into the jar.  Then I tamped it down using the bottom of a gravy ladle.  Place 1 1/4 cup of M&Ms on top & you’re almost done!

Here is a link to sheet of tags I made with Storybook Creator Plus.  They have the baking directions to make the Peeps S’mores.

I also made a circle label for the top.   

It features this little guy made with SBC+. You should be able to click on it, then right click on the picture & use “save as” to save it to your computer & import it for use in your digital projects.


This was a fun & easy project & would be great for other holidays, too – I know I’ve seen lot of other types of Peeps – pumpkins, ghosts, snowmen –pair them up with seasonal M&Ms & you have tons of possibilities!!

Happy Easter!

New Recorded Webinar Available

I just finished watching the “Toddler to Teen” Webinar. It’s fantastic & filled with lots of great tips for all types of scrapbookers, no matter what you’re working on. The Webinar focuses on creating an album that captures 18 years of a persons life but is really an overview of many CM album types & products with some fun ideas and techniques mixed in.

The webinar focuses on creating an album for someone that will be graduating high school but this would also be a great way to get started on an album about YOU!

At the beginning of the Webinar there is a nice explanation of the different album styles CM offers, too (PicFolio, Traditional, etc.) There is also a lot of information about products and a great intro to Digital Scrapbooking.

Here is the link to register & view the Webinar:


Let me know if you would like to have a copy of the handouts mentioned in the Webinar emailed to you.
