For the hop I am continuing my Sparkle Blend Birthday Stone gift tag series.  Today I am so excited to be using the new August Peridot and September Sapphire collections along with some Jillibean Soup shaker tags.

I pulled out the tags and stamped some floral images on each of these Mason Jar shaker tags.

  1. Adorable shaker tags! Love the jars with the pretty blends! The sapphire one is a favorite! I also love Sweet Boy!


  2. Oh my gosh, these are so cute! I’ve never seen shaker tags before but maybe I have, I just don’t remember. I love the green & the blue colors! I can see me doing so many things with all these blends! My faves are all the ones that have yellow in them but if you wanted to give me some, I wouldn’t turn down any of them!
