Just Rite Mega Font - blog hop


Good Morning Everyone

I am so excited to be part of this amazing Just Rite Mega Font blog Hop this morning and to be part of a hop like this with so many of my stamping idols is just making my head spin!!! Why is it a Mega Blog hop? Well there are 54 designers participating in this hop and it is so huge that they had to divide it into today and tomorrow! And guess what?! In celebration of the Mega Font Hope - Just Rite will be having a 30% sale on ALL of their font sets from now till the 24th of September!!! Trust me this is one sale you don't want to miss!

I am so lucky to be one of those designers and can't wait to go and be blown away by all the creations that these wonderful designers have made!!! And to celebrate this Just Rite offers a number of custom styled stamps that allows you to create personalized stamped impressions in a quick second, create monograms, and also has a ton of different fonts, and other images that makes making one card/project or especially more than one card a snap! Check out their home page for more details.

This morning - I have a few projects to share. One of my most favorite things about this awesome system - is how quickly it is to create your own personal message etc. with all of the different fonts and sizes that they offer. So I picked the three types of projects that I love using their fonts for. The first one is their stamps allow you to create a gift for somebody that is personalized for them (with their name or monogram) very easily.

Project #1 - Alexia's Box:

One of our dear friends is moving away. Her daughter and my son have been friends since they were 13 months old and as she packs up and leaves - I wanted to create a special box for her that she can put her favorite little things in - so I made: Alexia's Special Memory Box. This box was covered with some paper from BG and then I used the oval stamper and Special Occasions font set (check out more details here). I love this font set - its so curly and swirly - and with it I created the personalzied message and attached it to the box.


here is a closer view of the box front:


I used for the above project the 1 3/4" oval stamper with the Special Occasions font and Pansy center. I am so excited for my son to give this gift to his friend (he plans to put the rocks that they collected on a Nature hike in it :)


Project #2: " I will Always Be Your Girl:

The second thing that I love about this system - is that you can create a card with a unique sentiment with their stamps and also tailor the look of the sentiment with all the different fonts that are available. To show this: my second project uses the 2" stamp set with the Times Roman font set to create this quick little card that reads: "I'll always be your girl". This sentiment has a special meaning to my DH and myself - and so I made him a fun little card that I could tuck into bag to work:)

and here is a closer look at the sentiment:

Card Details:
Paper: Sweet Shoppe Designs
Ink: Ink Jet
Accessories: printer, liquid glaze, ribbon from stash, liquid pearls, Martha punch, corner rounder, sponger and dimensionals

Project # 3 - Tags and (pre-made) Sentiment Jar:

The third (among a long long list) of things that I love about this system - is that you can create a beautiful sentiment for a project that you have around the house or office. And I LOVE all the borders that they have to go with their different fonts. For my last project - I fell in love with this sweet jar and as suggested by my friend Michelle - I created a little container that holds both tags and sentiments that are ready to go on top of a card or on a gift. I am always in need of a quick topper for a gift and so I created just a few of the endless possibilities for gift/card toppers with these versatile sentiments using the Tiny Words and Border stamp set from Just Rite for this project to create the tags and sentiments that would go inside the jar. This set comes with a TON of different words and borders that you can mix and match for any quick card. And for the top of the bottle, I used the 3 1/4" wood stamper to create the sentiment: "Tags & Sentiments" (which is from the Times New Roman Lowercase Font set) and used the border from the Christmas Treasures Borders and Centers.

and here is a closer look at all the tags and sentiments inside the bottle that you can use to quickly make a card:


These projects were so much fun to create. I love how quickly they come together and the versatility with all that you can do with these awesome stamps and fonts and borders. The possibilities are endless!!! And to show you the immense amount of possibilities - please check out the works of these amazing crafters:
