Labels for my Pantry

This project I have been meaning to do for more than 6 months... probably more really. I finally broke out my Cricut and made some labels. I want a lovely pantry like House of Smiths. I know pretty much everyone has seen it. Well I want everything all labeled and organized and pretty, so I have begun to copy things that she has done in her pantry. Like this baking supplies crate. I took a 40% off unfinished wood crate from Michaels and stained it with some stain I had sitting in my garage.
 It looks so good with the labels on it!
I Mod Podged over it to hopefully make it last a while. I was too impatient to wait for it to dry so that is why the wood looks whitish.
 Then there are my jars -
 Yay! Now my silly husband won't confuse powdered sugar for flour!
(really? yes.. *shakes head*)

  Then I found this bottle at T.J. Maxx for only a buck!

 Of course I put maple syrup in it!
 Hooray! One more craft project to check off of my mile long list!
If you have a Cricut do you know about Sure Cuts Alot software? I purchased it and LOVE!
You can use any font you have on your computer, plus dingbats. No need to buy tons of expensive cartridges. SCAL is what I used to do all of these labels. I love it because you lay all of the words you want out on a digital cutting mat and you can adjust the size to the exact height and width that you need them cut, plus move them around to where on the mat you want it cut at. I hook it up to my computer via a USB cable and click cut. Its pretty awesome. I just thought I would share the love. Here is a link if you are interested.

OMG I love being friends with a famous crafty blogger. You are totally bringing your Cricut with you when you come over. What a shame it will be if you accidentally leave it at my house.
