Today on the JustRite blog - I thought that I would share with you some great Christmas Gift Ideas for the super hard to shop for people on your list. The ones that have absolutely everything!!
I am absolutely in love with the new square borders in the 2" Decorative Monogram Kit, the borders are a variety of widths and are so elegant. To design my project I selected the border from the kit that best coordinated with my journal. I stamped the image with a versamark watermark pad and embossed the image with super fine detail embossing powder from Ranger. I used a copper Krylon leafing pen to edge the stamped image. For my mat I used the Spellbinder's Fleur De Lis Pendant die and die cut it using Foil paper from American Crafts. Then I layered it on black cardstock die cut into a Scalloped Square. Then I accented it with silver metallic pearls from Michael's Recollection Collection.
JB-08345 Decorative 2" Square Monogram Kit
This monogram kit includes a 2" Square Wood Stamper, 4 Square Borders, 95pt uppercase Special Occasions font set (36pcs), 50pt uppercase Spec Occ font set (92pcs), and an uppercase 15pt Spec Occ font set (264pcs)-- that's 392 characters!
For my next project I altered an address book also from Office Max. Here is the address book before I personalized it.
Here is my decorated version:
For this address book I used the JB-08340 Deluxe Monogram Kit- 2" Round
This monogram kit includes a 2" Round Stamper, 4 Borders, 95pt uppercase Times New Roman font set (36 pieces),50pt uppercase TNR font set (92 pieces), and an uppercase 15pt TNR font set (264 pieces)-- that's 392 characters!
Then I embellished an 8 1/2" x 11" notepad with a magnetic glasp. The black edge is magnetic.Our decorative round 2" border was the perfect design for altering this book. I added Fleur de Lis Red cardstock punches (Martha Stewart Punch) and metallic rhinestones. I also added strips of paper to the black edge of the notebook which in it's original state was just plain black. For an additional accent I attached a metal Fleur De Lis Charm on top of the bottom red cardstock fleur de lis. Here is a photo of the gift set.
These were quick and inexpensive ---don't they look like a million bucks with the custom embellishments!!
