JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop 9

Welcome to WEEK 9 of JustRite Stampers’ Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops! Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing JustRite’s entire Christmas Collection! JustRite has some Christmas stamps in their newly released CLING line of stamp sets too that you can find HERE. This week, designers joining the JustRite design team is the Just Us Girls (JUGS) challenge blog design team! Welcome girls!
For the month of November, we thought we would switch gears a little and throw in some holiday gift ideas using your JustRite stamps! And in celebration of JustRite’s 9th and 10th weeks of Christmas Blog Hops, take 25% off All JustRite Original Christmas Stamps now through November 15, with FREE shipping within the United States. Don't forget to tell Santa! For my creation today, I made a ABC Match Game for our grandson! He's really into letters right now and this is a perfect gift for him! I hope I can wait until Christmas to give this to him! The October Afternoon ABC cards come in a set and can be found at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. I used two sets to get two cards of each letter, hence creating a match game! Of course simple letter recognition, using the coordinating words & pictures are a benefit too! Just look at the darling illustrations on the cards! I was pleasantly surprised when I turned the cards over to find a surface I could personalize! Mixing and matching (pun intended!) JustRite's newest font, Myriad Pro in different pt. sizes allowed me to come up with a wonderful way to personalize each card! Above is 95pt font in upper and lower case. This is the size used for the box name and ABC. Here is JustRite's Myriad Pro Font in 50pt size, I used both upper and lower case for the wording on card backs. I love the clean straight lines of this font! And since this is a Christmas gift, I added this sweet sentiment to the box backside! All the paper is from October Afternoons, Report Card. I cut out the box front alphabet and wording from a page in this paper pad as well! The outer stamped border and center are from JustRite's Christmas Joy set. The box embellishments are all attached to the removable belly band that slides onto the box. Just a hunch, I suspect one day this will be taken off and the inside cards and name will remain! Kaylub's Mommy will probably keep the belly band in his keepsakes!
So there you have it! A super simple way to spruce up an idea that is perfect for gift giving! I say it every time I use JustRite's fonts, so here goes again! There is nothing like receiving a gift with your name on it! JustRite fonts allow me to do just that! And that's what makes the perfect gift JustRite! Take good care!
