Justrite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #11

Hello and Welcome to the 11th week of JustRite Stampers’  Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops!  Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving some of your favorite designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing JustRite’s entire Christmas Collection of stamps!  Don’t forget that JustRite has some Christmas stamps in their newly released CLING line of stamp sets, too -- you can find them HERE.  This week, the designers joining the JustRite design team are the Stampers Dream design team and a few other special guests!

For the month of November, we thought we would switch gears a little and throw in some holiday gift ideas using your JustRite stamps, so be watching for those, too, on November’s hops! 

In celebration of JustRite’s Christmas Blog Hops, they have a huge surprise for you:

 take 25% off All JustRite Original Christmas Stamps now through November 29 with free shipping within the U.S. on orders over $50

This week my project for you is one that is quick, easy and super super cost effective!!!!  This is a gift you can make for anyone in your family - and I mean anyone that loves to keep a little planner in their purse or drawer.   I was in Joanne's the other day and found these 2011 Weekly planners in their $1 section.  Now many of you know that I have a 6 year old but what you might not know is that she is super organized and particular and loves to keep everyone on schedule!  I decided to alter the cover and make it more girly-girl and appropriate for my little organizer.  Now she can schedule swimming, homework, playdates and sleepovers and I might even have her keep track of my schedules - now there's a thought!!!  I am also thinking this is a perfect gift to give her little friends from school.  It did not take long to make and I simply used the supplies I had on hand...


JustRite Stamps: In the Moonlight Cling
Spellbinders: Lacey Squares
Markers: Copic
Ink: Memento
Paper: My Mind's Eye
Gems: Flourish Recollections
Weekly Planner Journal: Joanne's
Post-it Fully Adhesive Craft Paper

{How To}

 I purchased a 2011 Weekly Planner from the dollar section at Joanne's.  After removing the plastic protective cover I adhered white Full Adesive Craft Paper from Post-it to the front and back covers.  Cut a panel of patterned paper to fit the front of your planner.  Embellish patterned paper with inked die cuts, gems and stitching.  Stamp your image on white cardstock and color with copic makers. Trim around the edges and adhere to your front panel with foam squares.  Finish by slipping the covers back into the protective plastic layer.

This is so pretty, at first glance I thought it might be a checkbook cover. Perhaps a checkbook would fit in the vinyl cover too??

CraftyJo said...

Having recently got a little girl in the family (at last) I can appreciate the lovely 'girly' look of this.

Clarinda said...

Love this! Great Job!

We should all be so lucky to have organized children!!!! Very cute gift idea. My mom always keeps one of these in her purse. She is 83 now and her memory is very poor, but this helps.

Once adjusters have that package thing received from an attorney with documents, photographs along with other papers and etc. For how long does it commonly state in the letter to reply? Do adjusters actually reply by or on the date? Whenever they respond by telephone, email, letter or fax?
