Justrite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop #9



This Wednesday is special for two reasons - first we celebrate another week of JustRite Stampers’ Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops!  and secondly it is my Birthday today but more about that at the end of this post :)


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 is the Just Us Girls (JUGS) challenge blog design team! 

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!  And in celebration of JustRite’s 9th and 10th weeks of Christmas Blog Hops, they have a huge surprise for you:

This week I chose to make a teeny-tiny Mini-album on a keychain as a gift for the Grandparents.  When I say teeny-tiny I mean just that.  My album measures 2"x2" which is about the length of your thumb! I used 2" square matteboards called Twinchies Squares from a company called Inchie Arts.  The stamp set, which I colored with Copic markers, is JustRite Stampers: From Our House (2" Square).  The stamps fit perfectly on each square and because of the texture of the mattboard, coloring with Copics creates bright crisp results.  My photo-editing software on my computer allows me to size my pictures exactly the way I need them.  I printed each picture 1.25" square and mounted them on black cardstock before adhering them to the Twinchie.   I used my Crop-a-dile to punch a whole through each square and threaded them onto a keyring.  Finish by embellishing with a large bow :)


The following Blog Hop participants all have fabulous ideas to make your gift giving a very personal and rewarding experience this Holiday Season:

Birthday Celebrations


I don't often post pics of myself because I am super shy when it comes to the camera - not in person though *lol*...but I promised some of the Spellbinders gals I would share a pic of the 'new' me on my b/day so here you go!  The boots are a b/day pressie from Hubs (Laura took this shot of me yesterday in her new kitchen)
  Cheers to another year of good health, good fortune and good friends!
