Welcome! :) If you're here today for the JustRite Mega Font Blog Hop, you should've found my blog by way of Angela Barkhouse's blog. If you'd like to start at the beginning of today's hop, please visit the JustRite blog. (Today is the second day of a two day hop! If you missed yesterday's blog hop you can find it by clicking here. )
I am SO excited to be one of the participants in today's blog hop. :) Not only are there a slew of projects to inspire you, you also have the chance to win some Mystery Candy! There are 3 Blog Candy prizes each day, which will go to 3 random commenter's from three random designers blogs. The Mystery is that no-one knows which blog is the one that will be giving away the candy – not even the designers! So, to win some JustRite Mystery Candy all you have to do is check out all the blogs, and comment on as many as you can from the two day hop. You have until Sunday at noon EST to leave your comments. Good luck, the lucky winner may be YOU!!! You have 6 chances to win! Check back at the JustRite blog on Sunday evening to find out who the six lucky winners are!! :)
My project today is a decorated gift box and coordinating card. This 4 1/4" square card features the Trompe Script Lower Case Font. I started out with a 4 1/4" base of Raspberry Fizz CS, then cut out the other layers (Whisper White 3 3/4" square, My Mind's Eye Bloom & Grow polka dot 3 1/2" square, My Mind's Eye Christmas Carnival green patterned paper 1" x 3 3/4"). I used the Trompe Font to stamp Merry Christmas on top of the polka dot patterned paper. Once that was done, I used a punch to cut out the snowflake from Shimmer White CS, and then embellished it with rhinestones. To finish up, I adhered all the layers, then added aqua and green ribbon trim.
This little box started out as a plain brown box and lid that I covered with patterned paper. I added some hot pink satin ribbon, then punched out a snowflake with Shimmer White CS. I stamped the Tiny Words "Don't Peek" stamp & border, as well as one of the borders from the Special Occasion Monogram kit, and then punched them out with my circle punches and adhered them together with pop dots.
Thanks for stopping by today! It's been a pleasure! :) Your next stop on the trail is Tami Mayberry's blog...
