Of course there will have to be 12 Days of JustRite Christmas. Today's Project was created by Angela Barkhouse- for those of you who read my blog often - you know that Angela & I love to collaborate on projects. So of course when she saw that I was hoping to blog 12 Days of JustRite Christmas - she was up for helping with the Challenge. Any excuse to use our New JustRite Toys-Right!!
This project was inspired by a project Taylor Van Bruggen designed months ago. And we were so happy on Monday when we read Sharon Harnist's Blog to find out that she too had been inspired by Taylor's project. She created a stunning Coupon keeper (if you ask me too nice for coupons!!). Sharon has written fabulous instructions on how to construct the folder itself. So you can visit her post for those instructions. Here we will just concentrate on giving the altered file folder a Christmas Twist.
Angela decided to make a paper wrap to enclose her Agenda holder. The image stamped on the front is from the JustRite JB 08150 Christmas Stamp Ensemble. ( remember to purchase your wood block separately) The font is Times Roman - 50 pt, and the date is TImes Roman 25 pt - which is available in the JB 08060 New Times Roman Font set.(296 Characters- 3 sizes of font). The stamped image was then double matted with 2 diecuts using Spellbinder's Scalloped Circle Nestabilities. She used her Small Harmony Rectangular stamper to personalize the file tab.
Here's a view of the inside of her folder. And here are some close up photos:
For the interior embellishments Angela used the JB 08120 Harmony Classic Circle II Stamp Ensemble borders (this is the set that comes with the wooden stamper) and designed the messages inside the center of each border using the expanded Curlz Font in 25 pt. The first pocket of the Agenda holds a tag for items on her wish list - (yes you all should have a wish list tucked in a special place that your family can find!!).
The second pocket contains a list for all the Christmas Parties she will be attending. Angela used her Cricuit -Tags Bags Boxes and More Cartridge to diecut the tags and since the tags tops looked like wreaths she decided to dry emboss them using her Snowflake A2 Embossing Folder. Then she added holly and bow die cuts. Next we dug through my stash of toys to see how we could decorate the note paper on the tags. I love Rubber Stamp Tapestry's peg stamps and this set was perfect for decorating each note a little different and the tiny present peg in this set fits perfectly in between the star designs in one of the borders. Here is a closeup of the right side of the Agenda Folder.
And here you can see how cute the tiny peg present stamps are stamped between the swirl designs in this border.
Sorry for the color variation in the photos..this paper is really bright red!!
Here are photos of how we decorated the note paper.
Stop back tomorrow to see the next Fabulous Projects Angela & I designed!!
