Just Because...

Good Monday Morning to YOU! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I was blessed and surprised beyond measure! I will share all that in another post this week, because I have lots to show you today! JustRite Stampers is sharing inspiration from two of their newest sets, Just Because and Because I Care and I chose to make a set of tags with Just Because! Here is a pic of the entire Just Because Set! 18 mini sentiments that coordinate with our Happy Everything Tag Making Kit! (You do not need the Tag kit to use this new set, because JustRite also offers the mini rectangle clear stamper separately) OMGoodness, how I love to coordinate and interchange my stamps! And take a look at the variety of font usage! Love, love, LOVE this! You might have wondered why is there 5 tags? Because I had this lone wooden box to fill and that is the amount that fit perfectly! This is the last of those wooden boxes I purchased a while back at Michaels. The others are HERE and HERE! Same drill, after adhering the designer paper with scor tape, I sanded and rubbed ink around the edges! A peek at the lid top! I had this purple trim in my leftover stash and added a couple loops to my bow, and made a little flower! After cutting a Gluber in a tiny circle I pressed the trim in a circular fashion, pressing onto the Gluber as I went along, adhesive rhinestone in the center and a perfect embellishment! Info on Glubers HERE! Everything I used aside from purple leftover trim, celery green silk ribbon, and turquoise fairytale rose comes from the above Stamp Simply Utopia Kit! LOVE the colors & the fact Sharon has put all the coordinating elements in one kit, easier for me! For this tag, the largest die comes from the Ribbon Tag Trio Three Shapabilities set. The two rectangles are two of 4 dies included in the JustRite Happy Everything Tag Making Kit. Same dies but adding #2 from Labels Fourteen, inserting it so the top and bottom edges show! For this Tag I utilized two of the dies from the Ribbon Tag Trio Three Set! The top tag fit perfectly into the lower tag slots to create a wonderful look for the papers! I also used a rectangle from the Happy Everything Kit to cut a window in the cover tag, so the sentiment peeks through nicely! And this tag adds a Mega Large Oval Die, #1 to the mix. Just another way to showcase the papers and add dimension to the tag! And the final tag uses Spellbinders Labels Six, Die #1 creating a window to showcase our sentiment. The tiny green leaves come from trim included in the paper kit! I trimmed one and two leaves at a time and glued in place where desired. A peek at the open box with tags inside! I carefully tucked and smoothed the silk ribbon on tag's underside so they did not get all wrinkled and bunched! Behind each tag I placed a strip of 1/2" scor tape for easy attachment to a gift, use as a card embellishment, place on a small gift item, yes indeed, the possibilities are endless! I cut two of each die so I could adhere the die cuts back to back, giving each tag a more finished appearance from the backside! Phew! I told you it would be a long post! JustRite's Just Because Mini Sentiment Set is truly one of those sets I will go to again and again, a welcomed addition to my JustRite collection! Have a marvelous Monday! I have card to share tomorrow, thanks for visiting, You are the Best! (hint of tomorrow's new set)
