JustRite Mega Font Blog Hop



Welcome to the first ever JustRite Font Blog Hop. This is a 2 day event. If you missed yesterday, go to the end of this post and check out these amazing and talented ladies.


I have always had fun with the font sets. I think it is because there is no coloring involved and everyone loves to get something personalized. At first the tiny letters were intimidating but after using them for a while it got much easier.


Be sure to read all the way to the bottom of my post for a "mystery surprise" and a sale.


For today's project, I chose to make a scrapbook page showing all the school year pictures of my oldest daughter Heather. She is now a Junior at college. Time flies by so fast. I look back at these photos and can't believe that it has been that many years ago.



All of the photo frames use the Small Letter Set mounted onto the 1 5/8" wood stamper. After each frame was stamped, I diecut them using the Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities. The blue and white scalloped mats were diecut using the Spellbinders Petite Scallop Nestabilities.

This is the view of the back of my stamper. The letters are very easy to put into the grooves and they stay there until you take them out. For Heather's Elementary School pictures, I was able to keep the bottom portion of my stamper the same for all 9. For her High School photos, I only had to load the school name once for all 4 years. All I had to do was to change the top half of my stamper. This makes it very easy to do fast, multiple stamping.



The center photo is Heather's Senior Yearbook photo. The labels "Senior" and "Dirigo High" were stamped using the Times Roman 50 pt font, diecut using the Spellbinders Tags 5, and attached to the page using brads.


To finish off the page, I added Kaiser rhinestones on each side of the photo frames.

JustRite is celebrating their Mega Font Hop (a 2 Day Event with 54 designers)in style with a Super7 Day Font Sale. Take 30% off all JustRite font sets and the Horizontal and Veritical Font Stampers. Sale begins Sept 17th and ends Sept 24th. Don't miss out on this terrific opportunity. A word of advice - be sure to buy more than 1 of each set. Reason being is that if you load a stamper with a particulary phrase, you may want to keep it on the stamper for future use. So if you have more that 1 set of a particular font, you will always have the letters you need.


There is Mystery Blog Candy being given away during the Two Day Just Rite Font Blog Hop!!! Why is it a Mystery.....well there will be 3 blog candy giveaways on each day and you can only win by leaving a comment on the right blog! The real surprise is you won't know which blog has the candy.....even the designer doesn't know! So as you visit each of the 54 designers over the two day event take time to leave a comment.....who knows, the lucky winner may be you!!!!! You have until Sunday at noon to leave a comment for your chance to win. Then check back at the JR Blog on Sunday evening to find out who won!!!! Enjoy the Hop

Be sure to check out all of these other great blogs for more inspiration. These ladies are just amazing and I feel honored to blog with them.
