JustRite Stampers Mega March Blog Hop - Day 2!!




















Welcome to my blog!! I am SO excited to show you my project today.

My scrapbook store (Craft Fancy, Arlington Hts. IL) had these huge empty sticker rolls so I took a couple. My first thought was to make a big spool and roll a mini album into it. So I purchased sewing-related pattern papers, brought it home and thought and thought and...THEN JustRite Stampers came out with JB-09730 Stitched With Love Borders & Centers Round 2 3/8" . "Oh, my!" My inspiration wheel started turning and I ended up creating this...



















FOR A BETTER LOOK, PLEASE CLICK ON IMAGE - THANKS!!
With pattern papers from American Crafts, I punched holes with my Bind-It-All and then "stitched" together 4 1/2"Hx12"W strips of papers to make a total of three pages...a real mini! LOL!! And of course, I had to use some of my Spellbinders™ products such as S5-011 Scalloped Edge Frames, S4-214 Eyelets Borderabilities® Petite, S4-235 Fancy Tags, S4-114 Standard Circles LG and S4-116 Standard Circles SM. Other embellishments are from Maya Road (Trinket Pin, Sewing Themed Chipboard) and the buttons are from my stash.




































































Notice that I used almost the entire stamp set on this mini. I had so much fun with this project and I don't even sew!!! LOL! Thanks to JustRite Stampers (esp. Kellie Fortin & Sharon Harnist) for making this project SEW easy to put together. Sometimes you just need a little inspiration to get ya goin'...

30 designers, FIVE shopping sprees each day. No one knows where the prizes will be! Each day of the hop JustRite will have five Mystery Blog Candy Prizes hidden along the hop with a total retail value of $600. JustRite will randomly select five mystery blogs each day of the hop and randomly allocate each of the shopping sprees. For your chance to win, simply leave a little love (a comment) on each designer’s blog including the JustRite Blog. The more designers you leave comments with, the better your chances of winning. Each day’s comments will remain open for three days. A winner from each of the mystery blogs’ comments will be randomly chosen using Random.org. Consult the listing of designers at the JustRite Blog each day (each day’s designers will be different) and start out on your way! Beginning Friday, March 26, summaries of all the winners will be posted on the JustRite Blog.

Good luck to everyone and enjoy all the JustRite eye candy along the hop!

Today during the JustRite Mega March Blog Hop (Day Two) JustRite and its sponsors will be giving away the following five prizes:

· $200 JustRite Shopping Spree
· $100 Spellbinders Shopping Spree
· $100 Stamp Simply Ribbon Store Spree, and
· Two additional $100 JustRite Shopping Sprees!

Blog comments for Day Two will be open until Friday at 6pm EST. On Saturday, JustRite will announce on their blog which five blogs have the mystery candy for Day Two. You will need to go to the JustRite Blog to determine where you need to go to find out if you are one of the five lucky winners.
