Are you ready for an exciting new JustRite Catalog & Idea Book sneak peek blog hop?!! Today, each of our fabulous designers will be sharing one special never-seen-before project they each have in the new catalog. This will be just a small sampling of what you will find in this wonderful idea book!
And joining us on today's hop is a new JustRite Design Team member, Stephanie Kraft! Welcome to the team, Stephanie! Here's a little bit about Stephanie:
Stephanie took up scrapbooking for a brief time in the mid-1990s while she worked in the computer industry. She had a renewed interest in the hobby shortly after the birth of her daughter in 2003. Five years later as a stay-at-home Mom, she discovered the world of stamping blogs and found that she was spending more and more time being inspired by others but creating nothing herself. She created a blog of her own in September 2008 with the thought that it would motivate her to create artwork more regularly. Since then, rarely a day goes by that she doesn’t get inky! Though she loves scrapbooking and preserving family memories, her current passion is in making cards and handmade gifts. She also enjoys photography, cooking and spending time with friends and family. Stephanie currently lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her very supportive (and tolerant of her hobby/obsession) husband of 10 years and 7-year-old daughter.
Some of you may recognize Stephanie's name from winning a LOT of our JustRite Friday Challenges, so you may be happy to know that she won't be eligible to win any more of those challenges now that she's on our design team, LOL!
Stephanie, along with all of our designers, are very excited to share their project sneak peeks with you and you'll be able to find the full project supply lists for their projects in the catalog!
The 2010 JustRite Catalog & Idea Book is now available for pre-ordering and will begin shipping June 12. <= Just click on the purple link to preorder it! The catalog is 84 pages and it includes all our current stamp sets as well as the next four months worth of releases!
It will quickly become your JustRite Reference & Inspiration Book: You can check off the stamps sets you have and the catalog becomes an easy reference guide to what you own in your personal JustRite collection. And you can also make your JustRite wish list from this handy reference guide! Inside, you will find over 127 project ideas from our very talented design team, including complete supply lists for over 75 projects! The 2010 Catalog & Idea Book retails for $6.95.
We will be introducing NINE new Christmas/Holiday stamp sets and over 37 new products! And what's that on the lower left side of the cover? JustRite will begin introducing CLEAR STAMP BLOCKS on June 1st! These blocks are the same great design as our wood blocks but make positioning your images a breeze! We will have more information about the clear stampers the week of June 1st.
Here's a new project I have in the catalog, one of my favorite things to create ... cookbooks!
Here's a close-up ... I used our 1-3/16" Recipe Borders & Centers set for the tabs and I had fun using the "Bon Appetite" phrase as a semi-circle accent down the left spine of the book:
I customized the cover with "Family Favorite Recipes" of the Harnists -- my last name spelled out with our Small Letter Set and monogram initial using Times New Roman Uppercase font! They are in the center of a Spellbinder's Dahlia flower die cut.
You will find the complete supply list for my cookbook in the new catalog, along with each of the projects our design team is sharing with you today!
Before you start your hopping, we wanted to let you know that we are moving our May release introductions to next week. Our team needs to take a deep breath and spend sometime with our slightly neglected families and enjoy the upcoming U.S. Memorial holiday weekend. The pre-order site for the release is already up on our website and you may begin placing your orders today. We will begin shipping this release on June 1st. The new release has a brand new JustRite concept which will inspire you to use our new stamps for scrapboooking as well as cardmaking! So enjoy the hop and the long weekend and stop back in here on the JustRite Inspiration blog beginning next Tuesday, June 1 to see our cool new JustRite concept!
Until then, you still have until this Thursday morning, May 27 to enter our JustRite Friday Challenge to make a Christmas card with your JustRite Stamps! And we'll have a new challenge for you on Friday, sponsored by Copic, to help you make it through the long weekend!
