JustRite Mega March Blog Hop!


Hey, welcome to my blog and another stop on Day 3 of the Mega March Blog Hop with JustRite Stampers! If you've arrived here from Holly McMillen's blog (isn't her design work fabulous?) then you're on the right track. If not, you'll want to go back to the beginning (it's not too far!) and start at the JustRite blog because there are some major prizes being awarded along the way! Major prizes, I'm telling you!! Details are below... you can read about them after you check out my projects for today! (*Please note... the contest is now closed!*)

First thing I have to mention though is that you have no idea what a big accomplishment these projects were for me to do WITHOUT NESTABILITIES! *gasp* I know... horror, right? Raise your hand if you're the idiot dingbat who left your circle Nesties at work on the night that you have to create with JustRite stamps? Smiley from millan.net Yep, that's me... the only one with her hand in the air! Pretty dumb, right? And it meant a 10 mile drive back to the store if I wanted to get them. It also meant having to change out of my "in-for-the-night" clothes because I would not have made it to the store and back without stopping for gas, too. *sigh* I decided to try to make a go of it with my old Marvy punches. Not quite the same, but I made it work! *pats self on the back*

OK, enough of my stupidity! My first card was made using the Stitched With Love Borders & Centers 2 3/8" set from JustRite. I used the sketch challenge from Splitcoaststampers yesterday, and that fabulous Material Girl paper from Cosmo Cricket! I added some ric-rac and some zig-zag stitching around the edges to keep in with the sewing theme, added some buttons and just had fun with the bright colors and simple design.
I recently got a batch of these clear pillow boxes at the store, and had one laying around so I thought I'd make up a little treat box full of buttons and another stamp from the Stitched With Love Borders & Centers set. Now I have a handy little gift for the next time I need something quick! The paper I used on this is also from the Material Girl mini-deck.
And finally here is a card I made using the Plant a Little Love Borders & Centers 3 1/4" set, and a sentiment from the Seeds of Kindness 1 5/8" Borders & Centers set. I absolutely LOVE the flowers in the Plant a Little Love set! I can't get enough of these pansies, especially! The paper I have used on this card is from a very old pad of Deja Views paper, and I've combined it with Bazzill and Stampin' Up! cardstock, and some gemstones from Zva Creative. The flowers were colored with Copic markers, and I used a recent Sketch for You to Try from Jen delMuro for the layout. I'm so pleased with how this turned out... I hope you like it, too!

Thirty 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 Three) JustRite and its sponsors will be giving away the following five prizes:
· $200 JustRite Shopping Spree
· $100 Spellbinders Shopping Spree
· $100 Copic Prize Package,and
· Two additional $100 JustRite Shopping Sprees!
Blog comments for Day Three will be open until Saturday at 6pm EST. On Sunday, JustRite will announce on their blog which five blogs have the mystery candy for Day Three. 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.

The complete list of participants is below, in case you get lost along the way! From here you will want to continue on to the blog of the uber-talented Angela Barkhouse for more JustRite creativity!
