JustRite 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hop 9

Welcome to the 9th week of JustRite Stampers’ Wednesday feature, 12 Weeks of Christmas Blog Hops! Every Wednesday up until Thanksgiving some of your favorite designers will be joining some of the JustRite design team for a series of Christmas blog hops, showcasing JustRite’s entire Christmas Collection of stamps! Don’t forget that JustRite has some Christmas stamps in their newly released CLING line of stamp sets, too -- you can find them HERE. This week, the designers joining the JustRite design team is the Just Us Girls (JUGS) challenge blog design team!

For the month of November, we thought we would switch gears a little and throw in some holiday gift ideas using your JustRite stamps, so be watching for those, too, on November’s hops! And in celebration of JustRite’s 9th and 10th weeks of Christmas Blog Hops, they have a huge surprise for you -- take 25% off All JustRite Original Christmas Stamps now through November 15, with free shipping within the U.S. -- Don't forget to tell Santa!!

Today I decided to make a bookmark using the great tutorial from Splitcoaststampers.  I need some inexpensive Christmas gift ideas for my daughter's school.  The PTO is organizing a "school store" that the kids can do some Christmas shopping for their family members.  The items needed to be inexpensive and not be sold for over $1.00.  The kids love to do their own shopping so I thought this was a great idea.  I have also made some of the tissue box covers that I posted here on my blog.

My sentiment is from the "Just A Note" set, stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and Memento Potter's Clay, diecut with Spellbinders Classic Circles, and matted with Spellbinders Pinking Circles.  The bottom border was made with the Martha Stewart Daisy border punch with some Kaiser pearls added.  The flower and designer paper is just some that I had laying around.

Below is a list of the great designers that will also be hopping today.  Be sure to check out their awesome projects.

What a great bookmark - I'll have to check it out - I like how unusual it is - does it hold up well on a paperback book page? Very cool - great colors.
