Charmed! Made Just For YOU!

Welcome to a Terrific Tuesday featuring JustRite designers creating with JustRite Stampers new set, CHARMS with Spellbinder matching dies. I'm loving having matching dies, doesn't get much sweeter! As long as we are talking about sweet, during the blog hop JustRite is giving away Three Mystery Blog Candy Shopping Sprees, which simply means along the hop there are 3 hidden shopping sprees! (The designers don't even know if they have the shopping spree!)

Here's what you will be eligible to win along the blog tour:

Simply leave a comment on each bloggers post and on Friday Morning over at the JustRite Blog the 3 Designers who have the mystery candy and the winners will be announced! Comments will close at midnight CST on Thursday Evening.

While shopping recently at Michaels, I found wonderful wooden boxes, all shapes and sizes for only 99 cents each! This first box, a star, has a removable lid with strong inset magnets in the lid and box body that hold the lid firmly in place. The finish on these boxes is nice and smooth, another plus, especially for only 99 cents. I covered this box with our grandson in mind, he's in love right now with choo choo trains, and this Basic Grey Oliver designer paper is perfect! I used scor tape to adhere the paper to box, then sanded the edges. I had this gold button in my stash and edged my die cuts with my Krylon gold leafing pen to pick up the gold color. Paper, scor tape, green twine, and pen are all found at The Stamp Simply RIBBON Store. The entire Charmed set is loaded with possibilities. For my first wooden box, I chose the star tag to coordinate with my box shape. And you will see the use of the heart shape tag in my heart shape box featured further along in this post. Charmed is a JustRite Cling set featuring 15 stamps. Custom Justrite coordinating Charms Dies come in a set of 12 Spellbinder dies. I ustilized the largest star die along with the middle star die for my sentiment. Same for the heart shaped dies for the heart shape box below. Cosmo Cricket Delovely designer papers look so bright and cheerful on this heart box. Same application of paper to box using scor tape and sanding the edges. I added more embellishments to this heart box to give it more of a girly look! This heart shaped box has a hinged lid along with one of the inset magnets I was describing above. Super nice smooth finish to the wood, again all for 99 cents! I think these would be perfect tooth fairy boxes, maybe a special place to store a tiny treasure, or just a decorative items displayed on a shelf, whatever it will be used for, surely made with love! Here is the HOP list, have fun on your tour, thanks so much for stopping by today! Take Good Care!
