JustRite Gift Hop!!!

Welcome to the JustRite Gift Hop!!!  Can you believe December is here already???  Not only is Christmas coming up fast, but it is also the end of the school year here in Australia!!!  Like many other Mums, I am busy making end of year teacher gifts - this one in particular will be going to my son's Speech Therapist.  I love making notebooks and larger journals as gifts - it's just so practical for teachers!!  They are quick and easy and you can make matching cards!!!  :)

I've used Basic Grey Lemonade paper to cover the front of the book and then added a layer of Rose Red topped with Very Vanilla embossed with Victoria EF.  Through the middle I've added some Satin Ribbon (thanks to Stacy aka Twinshappy!) and popped on top of that is the monogram.  For the Monogram I've used the new Deluxe Monogram Kit - 2" Round Set, stamped in Rose Red and cut with Large Circle Nestabilities.  To finish I added some Kaisercraft Latte Pearls to the corners.

I followed the same idea with the card using a Very Vanilla base.  This time I offset the sentiment circle (which uses the new Just A Note set for the centre and  Deluxe Monogram Kit for the border) and instead of pearls, added a large satin bow to the corner!!

There are so many beautiful projects on the hop, so keep hopping and be inspired!!!!  :)
