Good morning. We would like to thank Judy Hayes for being our guest designer this week. Her projects have been amazing! You can continue to be inspired by checking out Judy's blog – Creating…My Style.
I’m happy to be back for my third day as a guest
designer! I want to say “Thank you!”
JustRite for giving me this opportunity!
It’s been fun!
Today, I have a much different project than yesterday! I go from rustic to elegant with my projects! I like doing both styles. This card and gift box fits the elegant and
I started this card with the stamped frame around “Sweet
Friend” and the butterfly from JustRite Grand Sentiments. I really like both of those stamps! Next I chose Spellbinders Resplendent Rectangles
to cut the frame. This stamp set is
designed to work with Resplendent Rectangles!
So perfect together!!
When I decided to make a coordinating box, I was so pleased
to discover the decorative rectangle stamp fit so well across the box top and
flaps. I love how it looks on the side
of each box flap! Either of the small
frame stamps from For All You Do Vintage Labels Three work perfectly on top of
the box! You can’t really see much it
under the butterfly.
