Day 3 with Kathy Jones - JustRite Guest Book

Wow!! What a great release day we had yesterday. It was so much fun watching your orders roll in. I know many of you are also just dying to see what we have up our sleeves for Fall & Halloween Images and of course the 6 Christmas Stamp sets we will be introducing in August. If you thought you loved this month's release - just wait until you see the next 8 sets!! You won't believe how gorgeous they are!!

If you need to order a 3 1/4" stamper for our new Friendship set or One of the 2 new Christmas releases available in August we have a great deal for you. You can save $2.oo on the wooden stamper and get 6 free designer borders and centers by purchasing the Harmony Classic Circle III Ensemble for just $9.95. Original price was $19.95.

This morning Lisa Somerville has a card using the Thinking Of You Set.

Today Kathy has a beautiful JustRite Guest Book designed for you . Thursday and Friday she has projects using the new release. I've seen them and they are over the top gorgeous. You won't want to miss them!!

Welcome back to the third day of my Guest Blog Week!!! I hope you’ve been enjoying the projects so far. Today’s project is another one of my favourites – a Covered Journal! I like to do these for gifts, such as for teachers at the end of the school year, but also I find that I get asked for Wedding ones to be used as Guest Books for people to write in. So today I’ve made a Wedding Guest Book using JustRite’s Wedding Stamp Ensemble.

I started by purchasing a black Spirax Notebook and covered the front with some beautiful, white, shimmery patterned rose lightweight card (Quill Metallique Silver Essence Paper – Rose Iceberg). It was a little thicker than the paper I normally use, but it will be nice and durable. I punched one edge with the Stampin’ Up Spiral punch and stuck it to the notebook with some double sided tape. Then I took a piece of black bazzill, layered it with some more white shimmer card and added some black corners cut using the ‘Vintage’ die set by provocraft. Through the centre I’ve added some white satin ribbon (1 ½ inch wide) and tied the centre with a small piece of wire to keep it cinched in the middle. Over that I’ve placed my centerpiece.

I started that by stamping one of the borders and centres from the Wedding Stamp Ensemble in black ink on white card and cut it out using the circle nestabilities and embossing the edge. Then I punched out a piece of black with a 2 inch circle punch to give a fine mat. Then I used the next size up circle nestabilities to cut out some more shimmery white card and the matching scallop for the black scallop layer. When they were all stuck together I stuck it over the centre of the ribbon by using a bit of Pritt glue and some foam tape on the back. Once I had completed the entire panel I glued it to the front of the book and finished off by tying black and white ribbon down the spine!!!

That’s all for today, I hope you stop by again tomorrow for another project!!!


Keep us in mind....."When it needs to be JustRite".

This is a very pretty project. It would be great to add a bookmark with the medallion to place on the page that is being used while people are signing in.
