Michael's Dollar Store Finds with a JustRite Touch

Today we have a great JustRite twist on how to use your from the Desk of, from the Kitchen of and from the Library of borders. First let's look at the border set with a monogram:
Now simply cut your border after the embellishments- cut a clean snip and you will have the option to use the full border or a partial border. Next use your 6pt small letters to write your full name in the bottom half of the border like this:
Now you have designed a Custom Stamp from the supplies you already have or now "really need to own"



Next we made a trip to Michael's Dollar Bin and found a great assortment of coordinating items and for under $5.00 we designed this great set:


Spiral Bound Notebook:
To make this notebook, cut a piece of DCWV silver paper 1 ½” x 5 ¼” and emboss using the Cuttlebug Swirls embossing folder. Adhere to the side of the notebook. Apply narrow white Christmas trim to each long side of the silver paper. Tie pieces of the same white Christmas trim to the spiral rings.
Load the 1 5/8” Harmony block as shown. I used the “From The Desk Of” border ring from JB-07300 (Three Border Set – Library of, Desk of, Kitchen of). I cut the border in half so that I only had the top portion of the ring and then I added my name on the bottom portion of the block using the Small Letter Set (JB-07275). **This was stamped on white cardstock using Versamagic Aegean Blue and diecut using Spellbinders circle Nestabilities. Die cut a blue scallop mat and a white scallop mat using Spellbinders Scallop Nestabilities.** Adhere all layers together and adhere to the bottom corner of the notebook.





Notepad with pen:
Cover the notepad with a 4 ½” x 3” piece of DCWV silver paper. Cut a piece of WorldWin Light Tempting Tanzanite paper 4 ¼” x 2 ¾”. Emboss using the Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder and adhere to the center of the silver paper. Apply white Christmas trim on each side. Stamp & layer verbiage like you did for the Spiral Notepad.



Notecards:
Cut a strip of DCWV silver paper 1 ½” x 5”. Emboss using the Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder and adhere to the center of the notecard. **Stamp & layer verbiage to coordinate with your set.

Supplies:
JustRite Stampers:
JB-07300 Three Border Set – Library of, Desk of, Kitchen of

Wow! I'm impressed! I just found your sets at my local craft store and had never used them. I bought the Christmas set and loved it. The pictures on your blog are great! Now I'm seeing how to use these stamps in so many different ways! Now I want it ALL! And what a great gift these sets would make for a stamper friend. Thank you for a great blog!
