JustRite Guest Designer Day 2!


I have a sweet gift set to show you today featuring the JB-09885 From my Kitchen from JustRite today!

A small Mason jar with M& Ms (or any candy) is one of my favorite quick and easy gifts to make.

I cut a patterned paper (Echo Park) for my jar and and then tied the pretty green ribbon and Baker’s twine. I stamped the phrase (From my Kitchen) with Memento Danube Blue ink. I cut the phrase with a Spellbinders™ Circle Nestabilities die, sponged the edge with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and attached it to a tag made with JB-08960 JustRite Custom Charm Dies. I attached the tag with Baker’s twine.

My 4 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ card was made with matching patterned paper (Echo Park) and ribbon. I stamped a frame from CL-02095 Kindness with Memento Bahama Blue ink and the sentiment (From my Kitchen) in Memento Danube Blue. The frame was die cut with Labels Twenty and then the edges were sponged with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I added a button with a little twine bow to finish off my card.
