Simple Canning Labels – Stampin’ Up! Tutorial #622

Hey There,

My garden is in full swing and it’s CANNING TIME!  I love putting up beautiful jars of home grown food.

Yesterday, I canned 8 jars of zucchini relish, 12 jars of bread and Butter pickles and started my sauerkraut (which has to ferment for a few weeks).

The new Stampin’ Up! stamp set, Kind and Cozy and matching Gingham wheel will make my finishing touches on my canned goods super simple to do and they will look oh so cute.  Check out below just how simple it is to make cute labels and belly bands for your jars.  Keep in mind the jars can hold whatever you want, even stamping supplies!


Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Kind & Cozy (item #129126) and Gingham Wheel (item #130110)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Cherry Cobbler, Pink Pirouette and Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  2 1/2″ Circle Punch (item 120906), Decorative Label (item 120907) and Sticky Strip ( item 124294), printer for label title

Stamped the Gingham circle on Whisper White card stock using Cherry Cobbler ink.

Stamped the words “made with love” using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Stamped the heart using Cherry Cobbler ink.

Stamped the flowers using Pink Pirouette ink.

Punched the circles out using the 2 1/5″ circle punch.

Printed the text out for my label on Whisper White card stock and then punched them out using the Decorative Label Punch.

Cut Strips of Whisper White card stock and then rolled the Gingham wheel on the strips using Cherry Cobbler ink.  I then cut the edges off of the strips to straighten things up a bit.  I can never wheel straight, lol.

Also wheeled the Gingham wheel on the top and bottom edges of the label using Cherry Cobbler ink.

Here is the put together jars.  Again, this was super simple and fast.  Now that I have my design down for this years labels I will do the same design only in different colors.  So next I’ll do my canned bread and butter pickle jars only in Old Olive.  I plan on using the same design so when I gift a basket of home made items they will coordinate.

May your day be a total delight.

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!

  1. Hi Michelle!
    Your jars are so cute! I have never heard of Zuchinni relish?? What do you use it for? I have a ton of zukes and would love a new recipe. I am patiently waiting for my tomatoes so I can start canning them. Enjoy your garden!

    Oh Michelle, I envy your green thumb, I can only imagine your amazing garden, it must be so fulfilling to see all that abundance and walk around it. I wish I lived closer because I would love to buy some of that Zucchini Relish and some of the other delicious things you are making. I also never heard of it but it must be delicious. Do you have a store or do you go to your local Farmer’s Market? I bet it flies out of the shelves in no time.
    Thanks for making my mouth water just imagining the taste of all of that goodness!!

      Hi Maria,
      I actually just can food for my family and friends. 🙂 You would not be able to make much of a profit selling home canned goods in a retail setting.


  3. What a lovely way to give your homemade foods. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Maria A. Rodriguez

    Oh Michelle, your family and friends are so blessed to be able to enjoy all of this goodies hand made with love by you. Thank you for the visual treat my dear.

  5. You bring back so many fond memories of years past. I used to can 350 jars of different foods. So much work but so great to have in the winter. We loved Zucchini relish but haven’t had it since I stopped gardening. Happy canning!
