Avery Label Project + Contest



I am thrilled to share a fun project that I have been working on with Avery labels as part of the Martha Stewart Circle. Avery approached me to ask if I would like to create some labels as part of their Put Your Best Brand Forward Contest and being a big user and fan of Avery products, I was in.

The contest is about designing your very own brand of products using Avery labels and sharing your before and after shots for the chance to win $5000 and your project appearing in Martha Stewart Living! For all of you crafters out there, time to get your game on... this is a perfect way to get great exposure for your business, and there are secondary prizes as well. Read all the details for the Best Brand Forward contest here.

For this project with all of the BBQ's we've been going to lately, I wanted to make some homemade sauces like pickled relish, mustard, and ketchup and I've been experimenting with a lot of different recipes adding in my own flavors and adjustments here and there. Here are the baseline recipes of my favorites I've tried so far: pickled relish, homemade mustard and homemade ketchup. Do you have a winning recipe that you've tried? Do share! I have also been reading up in this book on how to can the sauces so you can make big batches and save some for later.






As for the labels, I designed them in Adobe Illustrator and with some mad math and ruler skills aligned them to the actual label sheet, using Avery's new square and circle label sheets (22807 and 22805). You can also create your own custom labels using Avery's templates or software or even download the templates into Word if you don't have the fancy design software, which makes it even easier!





Heading to your next outdoor shindig with your own custom collection of homemade sauces would be extra special don't you think? Or what about for a hostess gift? If your sauces are really great, how about even selling a set of them at your upcoming Farmer's market? It would be such a treat and unexpected surprise at the picnic table to have those store bought bottles replaced with these beautifully labeled sauces.

*This is a sponsored post for Avery in connection with Martha Stewart's Circle. I came up with the concept, design and photographs using their new Avery labels and these opinions are my own.

WOW! I'd love to enter the contest. The window and wall signage labels would be perfect but I can't seem to buy them anywhere.
