So I am still busy working away on my organization in the kitchen. Last time I showed you some great labels that I had found for the pantry jars and their complimentary spice labels. Well I filled the spice label all in and printed them and then realized that they weren't going to work exactly as I wanted them to so I had to design some for myself. I actually made up two different kinds of labels. This job has grown much bigger than I originally anticipated. It is involving even more jars, but that's for later. Right now I want to talk about the spice jars.
So I made up these sweet little chalkboard labels for my spice jars. And by the way, for all of you out there that are searching for the perfect chalkboard background you really don't need one. I used chalkboard background for these larger labels in this photo but the smaller ones I just used a very dark gray and they look almost exactly alike.
I guess if you want the scratches and all like you see in some labels then go with a background but I was happy how these turned out. I enjoyed doing this. I haven't designed anything for quite awhile so it was quite fun. I plan on making more things like this in the future.
These went together pretty easy. I had this huge pile of jars because over here you can still buy yogurt in glass jars and they even come with a great little plastic pop off lid so I put the labels on, added a couple of washi tapes around the edge of the lids and then, remember those labels that I said wouldn't work...well they fit perfect on top of the lids! I love how they turned out, what do you think?

Have a great weekend! Diane
I just want to mention and give a shout out at Rose @ Fine Craft Guild and thank her for featuring this post. She mentions the possibility of downloading these labels and I do not have them available yet, though I plan on it. I still have to figure out how to make pdfs editable before I do because I think it is very important to be able to write what you need on the labels. So please keep a close eye out or just subscribe up there on the right and I will be adding them to my blog soon!
