4th of July & Video Tutorial

Here we are on day two with Dawn Griffith's wonderful creative projects and a video tutorial on how to use the Monogram Stamper (please scroll all the way down for the video). Today we have moved onto celebrating the 4th of July. If you would like a closer look click on any of the projects. Enjoy! The 4th of July is quickly approaching and I am making big plans for my hubby's return home from Iraq. He will only be home for a couple of weeks so I am planning a party with our friends and family.

The invitations all have the date and time printed inside plus a matching "Save The Date" magnet. The magent is a regular business card from Avery that I stamped and then adhered to a business card magnet. I know what you're probably thinking....."Save The Date" cards are used for weddings! Well, why not for all the parties you give this summer?

I really wanted to add sparklers to the candy holder but the pixie stix will have to do for the little ones that are coming to the party. I am sure the big kids will enjoy them too.

I made a video (below) that will show you how I made the labels for my goodies and also a quick run through on these fabulous JustRite Monogram Stampers. I love them so much and I will be using them every chance I get to create those cute, fun saying that NO regular stamps have. You now the ones...right? I can't stress enough that these are wonderful products to add to your stamp collection.

Until later......happy monogramming !

Wow! What a labor of love. So happy that you will have your hubby home, even though it's a short while.

Thanks so much for the video about how to use these stamps. I've been wondering how small the letters were and how to use the hand stamper. Now it's all so much clearer. I'm wondering what size hand held punches will work with these. I don't plan to buy Nestabilitites since I have a lot of other punches. As always, your project is fantastic.
