JustRite Font Blog Hop

Wanna do some blog hopping? JustRite is having a mega blog hop featuring all kinds of fun fonts. And from September 17-24, you'll receive an extra 30% off all JustRite fonts. At the end of my post, I'll be listing all the bloggers who are participating today. Then tomorrow, there will be a whole other list of bloggers joining in on the JustRite font blog hop.

Today I'm using the Brayton Uppercase Font Set and the small Horizontal Wood Stamper. You simply use the tweezers from JustRite to place your letters in backwards order on the wood block. Then you stamp. It's so easy to personalize a gift with a name tag or you can create your own sentiments and phrases and more!Now, you all know that I'm very practical with my stamping. I'm always using my stamps to create cards and tags that match little gifty items I like to give out to friends and family. Today I have another birthday gift to fancy up for my friend Lori Jo. She's a high school friend and now works at our same high school as the librarian. Often times, she doesn't get to leave the library and has to stay put during lunch. She has a tiny little office that doesn't offer the best accommodations for a nice lunch. So I thought I would give her one of my signature gifts of a mug, matching salad plate and pretty cloth napkin. Just the sight of her favorite barn red color will be enough to make any ordinary sack lunch seem fancy.
I couldn't leave everything all plain-like though. I started with a little gift card and matching envelope. The envelope uses Jenni Bowlin papers and has Lori Jo's named stamped right on the front. Anything with your name on it is special, but to have it hand stamped.....well that's just super-dee-duper-special! I used the smaller of the JustRite Brayton font to spell out Lori Jo's name....so easy but such a thoughtful and personal touch. The inside card has a punched circle of apples from the Autumn Blessings Borders and Centers Oval set that I colored with Copic markers.
I colored a full size image of the apples from the Autumn Blessings Borders and Centers Oval set with Copic markers and used a sentiment border from the same set. I cut the image out with Spellbinder's Oval and Scalloped Oval Nestabilities. I then punched holes, added black brads and tied the tag to the pretty mug with Papertrey Pure Poppy satin ribbon. For my presentation of my gift to Lori Jo, I surprised her at the library...brought in her gift..set it up just like I had displayed in my photo.....then let her see it. She LOVED it!! The first thing she noticed was her favorite color and secondly she tore into the gift card. She then promptly put the card back in the tiny envelope and retied the bow back on and set it up for display. I told ya people like to see their name on stuff! I didn't have the heart to tell Lori Jo that she is slowly turning into my mother! She re-wraps stuff like that all the time, LOL!!

So remember......keep it stylish, keep it simple......and your friends and family will love each and every gift they receive from you!!

I love this gift set and I am sure Lori Jo loved it as well. I know everyone loves to see their own name in print. You have a special way of putting an ensemble together.

What a lovely gift! I am now going to look for mugs and plates. I love this idea. Even for myself.

Sometimes work can be stressful (I work as a SPED para-educator) and I've been thinking that at lunch time, it would be fun to "set" a lovely table just for myself, even outside on the picnic table. You have inspired me to give gifts of love like this to others. Thank you!
