Good morning everyone. Welcome to Day 12 of JustRite CHA release. Today's set is called Sympathy Vintage Labels and coordinates with JustRite Vintage Label and Banners.
I don't know about you, but I don't really like making sympathy cards. They are so hard to do because the occasion is very sad. Recently a good friend of mine lost her mom unexpectedly. She was very close to her mom as we all are. I wanted to make sure that the card I made would give her some sort of comfort.
I created several layers of blue and ivory as a base to my card. The top layer uses JustRite Floral Flourishes Background stamp. The focal image and sentiment is from Sympathy Vintage Labels, colored with copics and diecut using JustRite Vintage Label and Banners. The sentiment on the bottom is also included in this set - I just stamped it onto blue cardstock and handcut it.
Here are the other JustRite designers showing projects today using Sympathy Vintage Labels
Thanks for stopping in for a visit today. There are still 2 more days of CHA releases. I don't have any projects for the final 2 days because I am flying home from CHA today. Once I get home I will be SLEEPING! CHA is so much fun but it's also a lot of work.

Good morning. Welcome to another great day of JustRite CHA releases. Today's release is call French Rose Background. It's a beautiful background stamp.
I love to use the JustRite background stamps to decorate candles. It is so easy to take a simple Dollar Tree candle and turn it into a beautiful home decor item. "Stamping" on a candle is so easy. Just stamp the image onto white tissue paper, hold the image against the candle, and use a heat gun to "melt" the tissue paper into the candle. Just be careful not to hold the heat gun in one area for too long because it will melt the candle too much causing excessive wax.
I stamped the French Rose Background twice onto white tissue paper and "melted" it onto the candle. The beautiful ribbon used on my candle came from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Ribbon store. Around the top of the candle I added pearls onto pins, pushed into the candle and then applied copper Stickles.
Here is the list of other JustRite Designers also showing great projects today using French Rose Background stamp.

Good morning everyone. Welcome to Day 10 of the JustRite CHA release. Today's set is called "For All You Do Vintage Labels Three" and coordinates with JustRite Vintage Labels Three dies.
Today I have created a thank you card using For All You Do Vintage Labels Three. I stamped the frame and sentiment using Memento Rich Cocoa and then diecut using JustRite Vintage Labels Three. I edged each layer with Memento Rhubarb Stalk. I also used a decorative element from this stamp set for the right side panel.

Good morning everyone. Welcome to Day 9 of the JustRite CHA release. Today's set is called "Poppies Labels Twenty-Nine" and coordinates with Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Nine dies.
This photo is of my oldest daughter Heather and her best friend since nursery school - Jessica
I am continuing to make an 8 x 8 album of my daughter Heather's wedding. Today I used the floral image from Poppies Labels Twenty-Nine and colored them yellow to match the flowers in Heather's bouquet. Then I handcut the flowers and popped them up on the page using pop-dots.
I loved the verse from this set because it expressed the close relationship that these 2 girls have. The verse is from Poppies Labels Twenty-Nine and stamped inside a frame from For All You Do Vintage Labels Three diecut with JustRite Vintage Labels Three. I also used a portion of the Genuine Friend Background stamp and highlighted some of the sentiments in blue.
The decorative corners in the lower portion of the page are diecut using Spellbinders Botanical Swirls and Accents. The decorative corners around the top portion of the photo are from Spellbinders French Frills.

Good morning everyone. Welcome to Day 5 of JustRite CHA releases. As you are reading this post I am on my way to California to attend CHA. It is so much fun to see all of my "blogland" friends and see all of the awesome new products coming out. It also doesn't hurt that I will be leaving chilly Maine for sunny California.!
The stamp set today is called "Ornate Happiness Squares" and is designed by Samantha Walker. She has also designed some Spellbinders dies that match perfectly!!
I don't know about you, but I don't have my photo taken very often. I'm usually the one behind the camera. At my oldest daughter's wedding in September the photographer (Thanks Kellie!!) took this photo of my husband and I. The sentiments in "Ornate Happiness Squares" seemed like a perfect match for my photo. I stamped each individual sentiment and used a Stampin' Up punch to punch them out.
Here is a look at the complete "Ornate Happiness Squares" set

Thanks for stopping in for a visit. The JustRite CHA release continues through January 18th so be sure to check back on a daily basis. I will not have a project for tomorrow but I will be back on Friday with another CHA project.

Good morning everyone. Welcome to Day 4 of the JustRite CHA releases. Today's set is called "Good Friends Labels Twenty- Nine" and coordinates with Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Nine.
I decided to use on of the frame stamps from "Good Friends Labels Twenty-Nine" to make an actual frame for my daughter Emily's photo. This was taken at my oldest daughter Heather's wedding back in September. I colored the image with Copics, diecut with Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Nine and then "fussy cut" the inside of the frame. The sentiment "Daughter" is included in "Vintage Rose Medallions" clear stamp set. The little frame is included in "Just Because Vintage Labels" and diecut with JustRite Antique Labels One.
Here is a look at the stamp sets used to create my beautiful frame

Good morning everyone. Welcome to Day 3 of the JustRite CHA release. Today's release set is called "Special Gifts Labels Twenty-Nine" and is compatible with Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Nine. I think this set is perfect for cardmaking because friend cards are the most needed cards.
When I first saw this set and the matching Spellbinders die I immediately thought of a book. The shape just reminded me of an opened book so that is how I set up my card. Each page is diecut using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Nine die. Then I curled the edges and applied dark brown ink. Each layer is put together with pop dots between each layer.
The bottom book page is stamped using Elegant Fronds Background. I stamped it with a juicy brown ink pad, added clear embossing powder, and heat embossed it.
The top "page" uses one of the images from Special Gifts Labels Twenty-Nine, also heat embossed with clear embossing powder. To finish off the book I made a little bookmark tassel.
Here are the other JustRite designers also showing some amazing projects using Special Gifts Labels Twenty-Nine.

Good morning everyone. Welcome to Day 2 of the JustRite CHA release. The set today is called "Live, Love, Laugh Vintage Labels Two". This set is perfect for wedding cards/layouts. My oldest daughter got married in September so when I saw this set I knew that I was going to use them on some wedding layouts.
To frame the photo of my daughter and her new husband I used Spellbinders Grand Decorative Ovals One. The sentiment and corner decorative images are all included in "Live, Love, Laugh Vintage Labels Two". I thought this sentiment was perfect for this photo. Love and Laughter are the main ingredients for a long happy marriage.
My layout also gives you a sneak peak at another CHA release background stamp that will be showcased by the JustRite Design team on January 17 - it's called "Floral Flourishes Background". Be sure to check back on January 17 for more projects.
Here is a look at the complete "Live, Love, Laugh Vintage Labels Two" stamp set.
Be sure to check out the other JustRite designers who also have some beautiful projects using Live, Love, Laugh Vintage Labels Two.
The JustRite CHA releases will continue right through January 18 so be sure to check back each day. I will also be heading to CHA next week but will schedule my posts for each day. You are not going to want to miss a single day!!
