Day 5 with Sankari Wegman

A Huge Thanks to Sankari for inspiring us this week!! I know you have enjoyed all of her amazing projects as much as I have. You can find Sankari most days blogging at Sankari's Sunshine Corner. Enjoy your Christmas Shopping and remember to tell Santa that JustRite is having a sale!

Happy Friday Everyone!!

I have been so happy to be the Guest Designer for Just Rite this week - its been a blast and so much fun to create all of these fun projects! I am sad that this is my last day as a guest designer but am excited to show you a project that I made using the beautiful oval baby stamps from Just Rite . My cousin and his wife just found out that they are having a baby girl and we are all over the moon by this news! I wanted to send them something cute and congratulatory and loved the fact that I could personalize their names with my Just Rite Baby Stamp Ensemble stamp set(which comes with 6 borders and 6 centers and which is on SALE right now for the amazing price of $4.00!!! )
The little metal container has some pink and white socks for the little wee baby and a 12x12 strip of Basic Grey Sultry is wrapped around it. I thought the bootie image was perfect for this cute little container of socks (and yes - I LOVE socks as you probably noticed from day 3's project :)
Here is a close up of the card: I cut out my oval (without a border) and paired it with my spellbinders. I love bright colors and am not really sure how to "do" pastels - and while I was making this, I had to laugh a little, because it is so not a light pink kind of card :) But I had fun making it and I hope my cousin and his wife will like it :)
I stamped the sentiment in Memento Rose Red and the pacifier image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored in with my copics. I sponged the edge of the oval (cut out the Creative Memories Oval cutter) and then adhered onto spellbinders with dimensionals - here is a closer peek at the sentiment on the card: I LOVE that I could personalize this gift with my cousin's name and his wife's name - it says: Congratulations: with the names of my cousins' written with Just Rite fonts (Times Roman 15pc). The fun thing is that even thought this bootie stamp is an oval one, after stamping it, I cut it out with some circle spellbinders and then created some layers :) Its always so nice to get a card/present in the mail and even nicer I think when it is personalized with your name on it :) Today Just Rite is having an amazing Sale and I can't wait to shop (in my PJ's sipping on some hot cocoa :) A huge thank you to Kellie for everything that she does and for all of you for visiting! I hope you enjoyed the projects this week as much as I enjoyed making them!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Big hugs to all!!
Sankari :)

Happy Thanksgiving & Day 4 with Sankari Wegman

Happy Thanksgiving!! Today Sankari is sharing with us her placecards for Christmas Dinner.
What a fabulous idea to get a jump start on your Christmas Decor!! Don't forget that we are celebrating with a huge sale -20% off every item in our store (except the November Release). We have taken an additional 20% off all the items in the sale section of our store as well. Sale Ends November 30th!! Enjoy the Holiday and Shopping!
Good Morning Everyone!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!! Hope that you are all doing great and enjoying some time off to be with family and friends (and enjoy some yummy food!). Today, I am such a Just Rite project that I have been wanting to do for such a long time - to make handmade place settings for our Christmas dinner - but usually this is forgotten in the rush to buy gifts, attend the holiday parties at the kids schools etc. But this project is super easy to mass produce - here is a view of the 12 place cards that I made:

Each place card is 3"x 3 1/2" - scored at 1 1/2". I stamped three separate images and borders from the: Merry Little Christmas Borders and Centers Round 1 5/8" onto a piece of snow white cardstock from Taylored Expressions and then punched each one out with a 1 3/4" punch. I then cut out red, blue and green scallops with spellbinders and started the assembly line to put it together. Each place card has faux stitching and has everyone's names using the JustRite Wood Stamper 2" with Bonus 15pt Font & Center set. I stamped the names of the people that I know are definitely coming and made more placecards that do not yet have the names stamped because we are not yet sure who all is coming for dinner :) - but as soon as we do - then its a cinch to stamp their name to the place card.

Here is a view of the place cards with the circular stamp: Holiday Hugs and Kisses: Each of the hats were colored with copics and then white parts of the hat were sprinkled with some chunky glitter: Here is view of the place cards with the stamped sentiment: Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas: I colored in the cute gingerbread men with copics and then went over it with some glaze pens:Here is a view of the place card with the stamped sentiment:Wishing you a Merry Christmas: The images are colored with copics and then covered with a glaze pen.
I loved making these Christmas dinner place cards and using these cute little Christmas stamps with the different bordered sentiments was such a nice way to create individual place settings that weren't all the same :) It was a cinch to make these place settings and I am excited to see everyone's face when they see their names in ink :) it's always a special time to sit down and have dinner with family - especially when everyone is scattered near and far! - so I wish for you a wonderful day today as we celebrate and give thanks!

Tomorrow, I have a wee little gift idea for special little bundles of joy!
So stop on buy for Day 5 project ideas tomorrow!!!
Big hugs!
Sankari :)

Day 3 with Sankari Wegman- Snowflakes & Socks

You will just love Sankari 's project today. What a perfect gift for your child's favorite teacher or a special friend!! We will have a 2nd post tonight at 5PM announcing our Black Friday/Cyber Monday promotion.

Good Morning Everyone!!

Are you all getting ready for some Thanksgiving yumminess?! Well, today - is a busy day over here with cleaning, cooking and eating :) lol! Today, I am excited to show you a project using one of my fave Just Rite stamps with the sentiment: "Snowflakes are Winter's Butterflies". This sentiment is one one of the borders that comes with the: Merry Little Christmas Borders & Centers Round 1-5/8" set. There are so many beautiful sentiments in this set that its hard to choose one - but I loved this sentiment because of the image of a winter butterfly.

All the Just Rite circle stamps are so fun to use them with all the different circle punches, nestibiliites or circle cutting systems and there are so many fun possibilities on how to layer them on your card or project. The project that I made today is a fun (and inexpensive (under $5)) gift for my children's preschool teacher. I created a little winter pail filled with socks and a matching card. I got this pail at Target for $1 and some socks to fill in the pail.

I love how this turned out and can't wait to make a few more! Here is a picture of the gift set:
I used the My Mind's Eye designer papers series and cut out little christmas trees for the bottom of the pail and then colored in the snowlfakes on the metal pail with blue copics and some added to the centers some bling (I used some Zip Dry to adhere the ribbon). I layered the sentiment and snowflake with my punches and then my nesties for the bigger sizes.
For the card, I cut out a cared stock and then punched with the lattice edge punch the inside of the card and then cut it a little shorter in the front of the card. So when the card is lying down it looks like this:
But when you stand it up - the lattice edge goes to the back and the circle window becomes more apparent and since the stamped image is on dimensionals - it doesn't hide in the background :
I arranged all the elements on the card and then punched out a circle with my nesties and then on the inside of the card I added the snowflakes are winter's butterflies sentiment which is covered with chunky glitter and then I layered with nesties and decorated with liquid pearls and sponging :) It's so nice to have such variety of choices of borders and images to mix and match and there is something about circle stamps where the sentiment is also circular that is just so fun to stamp with! I hope you enjoyed this project and gift idea :) and I hope you come back tomorrow for a little project to make your holiday dinner very special!!!

Thank you so much for stopping in today and can't wait to see you tomorrow!!
And wising al of you who are traveling to be with your loved ones - a very safe journey!!!
Big hugs!
Sankari :)

Day 2 with Sankari Wegman

Today Sankari has the sweetest oval designs to share with us. She used a creative memories oval cutter to die cut all her oval images. Just a reminder that the entire JustRite Christmas Collection is on sale for 20% off and that we ship in 48 hours. (excluding the Holiday Weekend).

Good Morning Everyone,
I can't even tell you how thrilled I am to be a Guest Designer for Just Rite! And for Day 2's projects, I am so excited to share with you some fun Just Rite yumminess using the gorgeous oval stamps in this beautiful stamp set: Christmas Joy Borders & Centers Oval (1 3/4" x 2 5/15" . I don't "go oval" as much as I would like to and had a lot of fun with all of these yummy oval stamps! For today's project, I altered some oval boxes and went somewhat vintage with decorating them. I altered three oval boxes with three different sentiments with alternating borders from this awesome stamp set to go with it - and also a card to go along with this set.

Each the bottom of the box is covered with a strip of the DP and then the sides of the top of the box were colored with copics. I stamped the sentiment twice onto the yellow cardstock and then stamped the border and then cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals over the sentiment so that it created a little frame over the sentiment. Here is a picture of the oval boxes together:
and this is a side view of the oval boxes: This oval box features the sentiment: Joy - I love the holly that surrounds this word "Joy" - I colored the holly blue with some Sakura gelly roll pens and then added some Adirondack pearls onto the berries. I added some liquid pearls around the edges and sides and a line of pearls on the box and then ribbon from stash. This oval box features the sentiment: Wishing You the Blessings of the Season which is stamped in Adirondack Expresso Ink and then decorated with some pearl accents, liquid pearls and ribbon from stash:
This oval box features the sentiment: A little wish for a Magical Christmas which is stamped in Stazon Olive and then colored in with Copics. The frame is colored in with Copics.
I created a card with the sentiment: Wishing You the Blessings of the Season. I love layering it up, but at the same time, I tried to keep the card simple so that the sentiment could shine through. I completely enjoyed making these projects and hope you enjoyed them too! It was so much fun to "oval it up!" and create some oval present boxes to put little holiday gifts in!

Please stop by tomorrow for projects that involve socks, snow and butterflies!!!
Hope you are intrigued :))) See you tomorrow!!!!

Big sunny hugs!!!
Sankari :)

Guest Blogger Sankari Wegman - Day One

This morning we have 2 posts...If you haven't seen the 2 sketches for You Sketch Challenge Post- please scroll down to read all the details.

This week we are so excited and honored to have the talented Sankari Wegman.

Sankari is currently a member of The 2 sketches 4 You Design team, Taylored Expressions Design Team,and a guest designer from Verve Design Team. If you are not familar with Sankari's blog -- Sankari's Sunshine Corner - you will want to immediately add it to your google reader or subscribe to her feed!! Everyday when I read her blog I am amazed at what Sankari has designed to share! I was shocked when she told me during her interview that she had only been stamping for a 1 1/2!!

Let's get to know Sankari-
1. Tell us where you live. I live amongst the cornfields of south east Iowa.

2. Tell us about your family. I have 2 children ages 4 and 2. They both are mini teenagers and have lots of "personality" (lol!). My husband and I feel blessed every day with our two precious ones.
3. Tell us how long you have been stamping. I have been stamping for a year and half and its one of the best therapies ever! I love it whenever one is asleep and I have some "me" time at the end of the day :)
4. Tell us where you do your stamping. I stamp in the corner of our master bedroom. The plus side is that I can't be a pack rat and have to use up my papers,etc because I don't have space for a lot of storage. The downside is - well - its a corner! lol! One day, I would love to have four walls instead of 1 corner :)

5. Tell us what is your must have stamping tool. My favorite tool is the corner chomper (I love how it has the two sizes) and sometimes rounding out a corner just has such a nice feel to the card.

6. Tell us how long have you been blogging. I started blogging about a year and a half ago. It just started out as a hobby once in awhile, but soon I was playing along with some card challenges and it grew into an addiction! I started blogging the same time I started stamping and feel so blessed to have made such wonderful friendships with so many people in blogland!

7. Tell us who is currently your favorite paper company. I love using the Choice Buttercream and White cardstock from Taylored Expressions for coloring with my Copics. I love using the Prism cardstocks for all the different colors and some of my favorite designer paper are from Bo Bunny and My Minds Eye.

8. Tell us what are you currently addicted to: My favorite embellishment are liquid pearls - I love how the add texture and dimension to a card. It seems these days that every project has to have just a little bit of liquid pearls.
9. Tell us your favorite paper crafting season and why. I love Christmas and Valentine's day for paper crafting - the papers and stamps are so sweet and cute and make it so easy to create little gifts for the special people in our life to let them know how much they mean to us.

Good Morning Everyone,

Today I am so excited to be a guest designer for the Just Rite Stamp Company!
I absolutely love how easy it is to create your own custom monogram, or sentiment and how versatilte the stamps are and with what ease you can change the borders around to create different looks for your creative projects. I have a few fun projects this week using the Just Rite system and even a video, if I can figure out how to actually do it :) Today, I thought I would make a little gift set to give to my son's teacher at school using the Just Rite stamps: Something Sweet Borders and Centers Round 2 3/8".

I had a little "paint can" that needed altering - so I filled it with some yummy peppermints and then created a little border on the bottom and on the lid of the paint can - created the sentiment" sweet treats.

Here is a view of the top of the can: the little peppermint on the sentiment is popped up on dimensionals and then I added some liquid pearls along the edges:

For my card, I used Taylor's Friday sketch #91 and stamped the same sentiment for my card - but this time took out the border: "Have a Sweet Holiday." I love that you can change borders and mix it up - or not have them at all - it allows such flexibility in stamping.

I am so happy to have a little gift set ready to give my son's teacher! I love the circle borders and round sentiments and how easy they are to interchange and give different looks. I hope you enjoyed today's project and for tomorrow - I have some "oval" projects that I hope you will come back to see :)

Wishing you all a fantastic Monday and the start to a beautiful week!!!
Big sunny hugs!
Sankari :)

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Bo Bunny Christmas line and Choice White Cardstock from Taylored Expressions
Stamps: Something Sweet Borders and Centers Round 2 3/8".
Inks: Memento: Lady Bug Red and Color Box Chalk (brown) for sponging
Accessories: paint can from Stampendous, ribbon from stash, circle punches and circle cutting system from Creative Memories, corner chomper, liquid pearls (Adirondack), Stickles (frosted lace), snowflake punch from Martha Stewart, bling from Kaiser, Inkessentials Whtie gel pen and dimensionals.

Steps how to alter the Paint Can:
1. Stamp the sentiment: Sweet Treats with the border of your choice three times onto Choice White cardstock and then punch out with circle punch (1") (you can punch out the middle image and then pop it up over the second stamped sentiment and then cut out the peppermint (sponge it) and then pop it up over dimensionals on the peppermint on the sentiment.
2. Cut strips of paper of your choice to go along the bottom. I used Zip Dry (which dries clear) for application because it stays on really well - and it also dries clear - so you don't see the glue application on the inside (only a few dots of the Zip Dry) are needed).
3. Add snowflakes and rhinestones as you wish and embellish with ribbons and bling as you would like.

Steps how to create the card:
1. Fold and cut an A2 card (which is 5 1/2" by 4 1/4") and cut strips of designer paper that you would like on the card . Sponge edges of cardstock and designer paper, and round the corner of one side.
2. Stamp the sentiment (this time I took out the border) twice onto white cardstock and then cut out with circle punches of your choice (This time, punched it out with a 1 3/4" punch). and then punch out some larger circles to mat it on. Sponge the edges and cut out the peppermint on the sentiment (the sentiment was stamped twice) to put on dimensionals and pop up over the peppermint on the sentiment that was punched out.
3. Embellish with your favorite embellishments whether it is ribbon, bling, liquid pearls etc. :)

It's Hip to be Square Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to our November Release Blog Hop!! I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see what the JustRite Design Team has created with this months release!!
Just a Reminder that we are celebrating our November Release with a sale.

Great Justrite/ Spellbinder's Video Tip:

Karen Hunsaker, one of Spellbinder's Design Team Members has a great tip on how to perfectly diecut your JustRite images using Spellbinders Dies. She is such a sweetheart because she has a video tutorial to show you exactly how you can get a perfect cut everytime!! It is a great tip and everyone should watch her You Tube Video. You can view it by clicking here. I have also loaded it on the Video Tutorial Section on our sidebar so that you can reference it at a later date. Thank you Karen for sharing your great tip in video format!! Please be sure to leave Karen a little love when you visit her blog. This was her first Video Tutotrial!!

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 started with this gorgeous silver embossed journal which I purchased at Office Max. I fell in love with the copper and silver embossed cover and very cool silver clasp. I decided that it would be the perfect desk accessories to personalize.

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!!
