JustRite Papercraft - Amazing Paper Grace August Release Day 1

I am so excited to announce today that JustRite Papercraft has added one of my favorite card designers of all time, Becca Feeken, as a designer of a new collection of stamps and die templates!!!!  Becca's line is called:

On my card today I used two of Becca's new stamp collections. The first one is the background stamp called Vintage Alphabet Soup Background which I stamped in blue for my background...

The next stamp set I used on my card was this beautiful sentiment collection.  It is called Just The Right Words and features a range of sentiments that can be mixed and matched.  The set contains two base phrases to which you can add a word to complete the perfect sentiment.  I used the base words:  "Because you are" and added the word Gracious for my card.  

Other product that I used on my card is the brand new die template set from Spellbinders called Asian Accents.  Aren't those scallops and deep embossed lines simply the most gorgeous ever????  I love this die template set so be prepared to see it (a lot!!!) in future projects ;)

So much fun today.  Congrats to JustRite Papercraft and Becca on this gorgeous union!  See you tomorrow for more fun reveals :) 
Happy Tuesday!

Show Me The Bling!

Making jewelry is so much fun and way easier than you think.  I created this faux enamel statement ring using Spellbinders Premium Craft Foil, Magic Gloss and the fabulous new dies from Julianna Hudgins Spellbinders collection called:  Jewel Flower and Flourishes Set.  I have a tutorial on Julianna's blog....

I have been so inspired by all the crafty goodies around me, especially the fun sneaks & shares from CHA so as soon as I have done a little more organizing (read cleaning) I will be back in my craft room with vengeance!  Promise ;)

Have a Super Saturday

Interactive Robot Invitation and Cupcake Topper

Sometimes making little boy party parafanalia can be a bit of a challenge - not so with Momenta Robot stickers!  I used these shiny little stinkers, coupled with Spellbinders die templates to make a Robot themed party invitation and cupcake toppers.   The best part is that the Robots move!  I attached them to a spring coil so that they shimmer and shake!!!

I have a tutorial on how I put these interactive boys together on this blog post

Thanks so much for stopping by today - I hope your weekend is going fabulous!

O Christmas Tree

Christmas Tree images always evoke a nostalgia in me that is reminiscent of the good old days!  Decorating the tree was a family tradition in our home growing up and now too with our new little family of four.  When Spellbinders recently debuted this stunning die cut at their Blog Frenzy Summer Spectacular Day 5 I could not wait for an opportunity to use it - thank goodness I did not have to wait till December. JustRite is revealing their Christmas stamp collection all week and on today's project I included two Christmas stamp sets on my card:

Christmas Antique Labels One

I stamped the sentiment onto a custom JustRite & Spellbinders die template set called

Once again the JustRite Papercraft! team have gathered their talents to wow you with this collection

Today is a very special day for all Americans!  I want to take this opportunity to wish everyone a wonderful 4th!  Have fun and be safe celebrating Red, White and Blue!

Happy July 4th

Photo Frame Christmas Card

It's JustRite Papercraft! release week and we are celebrating the cool and festive Holiday season.  Yes it's officially Christmas in July here in my craft room as I present to you a Photo Frame Christmas Card made with today's new release set called:

Although I love the beautiful lace detail on the inside of this frame I decided to trim that part away as well as the center of my oval to reveal the opening of my frame.  I inserted a picture of our girls taken at a winter amusement park last December.   I also fussy cut a few of the Holly sprigs and adhered them to the front of the frame with a foam adhesive square. This gave my frame added dimension.

JustRite PaperCraft! is releasing another set today called Christmas Miracle Ornament's and many of the designers have used this set in conjunction with the background stamp.  Here is your blog list for today's reveal:

Thinking of Christmas during these record heat times is certainly a welcome relief for many of us experiencing record heat temperatures.  Stay cool until I see you tomorrow!
