Good morning blog friends, I have a couple of projects to share today with my new sets from JustRite Papercrafts. If you missed my post last week I have two new sets Filigree Journal Covers and Mix and Match Sentiments. This project is tagged as quick and easy on my calendar for frugal Christmas gifts and (snicker) I have one down for me. I have gobs of journals sitting around, but none of them match and for the life of me I can never remember which one I use for what. So, I made a matched set of journals using Filigree Journal Covers – of course the Filigree frame works well on cards too. Coincidentally, it matches the other filigree stamps I designed earlier. The Vintage Alphabet Soup Background works out well as a background on the journal covers because it’s easy to line up the non-overlapping background for a continuous pattern. These will be easy to find in a crafting frenzy – one is titled Stamp Journal, Technique Journal, Quote Journal and Ink Journal.
I purchased four economical composition notebooks from Walmart for $1.50 each and covered them with the stamped paper on the front, back and solid paper on the spine. For the holder, I recycled a cereal box and covered the sides with paper and used stamped panels for the short sides of the box. The Filigree Frame is stamped on a square cut using Spellbinders™ Classic Squares LG and mounted on a panel cut using Spellbinders™ 5×7 Matting Basics A and the bottom shaped using Spellbinders™ A2 Bracket Borders One. The books are roughly 7.5″ x 9.5″

My next card is very simple :-) Starting with a pink card base I layered the Vintage Alphabet Soup Background stamped onto pink cardstock onto a black panel. With ribbons in place, I cut two of the oval frame motifs from Spellbinders™ Jewel Framed Sentiments and cut each of the motifs in half so that I could make a symmetrical horizontal frame. On top of the frame I layered one of the sweet new Die D-Lites™ called Ornamental Tags Three. To break up some of the roundness and pull the pop of black down into the card I picked out a small embellishment piece from Spellbinders™ Vintage Lace Motifs.
I pulled two phrases from Mix and Match Sentiments for a small two line sentiment. The card size is 5″ x 6.5″

My last card combines the Filigree Journal Covers with some Mix and Match Sentiments. I used Spellbinders™ Classic Squares LG to cut the panel I stamped the frame on then stamped the sentiment on the smallest motif from Spellbinders™ Timeless Rectangles.
The fluffy white flowers are made using Spellbinders™ Rose Creations and the gift wrap type of tissue paper. The card is 6″ x 6″.

WOUW I just love this bookset and the first card especially. I admit, the second card is a bit too busy for me, but that´s the great thing about us all being different, that we all likes different things, and it´s really rare, you make anything, I don´t just love, which I also absolutely do with the first two mentioned here. You are such a talented girl, that I can get all jealous some times and wish I had just a bit of that great talent too LOL.
Have a wonderful week-end hun and lots of joy and fun.
Stunning new stamps Becca and I adore these projects!!!
Girl, You about leave me breathless! OMG, he has given you so much talent. Love the new stamps but what you do with them is ‘AMAZING!!” You give each of us so much inspiration you can’t even imagine. GOD BLESS YOU BECCA!!
Forgot to wish you a very Happy Mother’s Day.
GORGEOUS BECCA!!!!!!!! ALL THREE projects!!!!!!!!! ;) You NEVER CEASE to AMAZE!!!!!!!!!! :) (NOW, show us WHAT’S INSIDE of your stamp journal????) I LOOOOOOOOOOOOVE your second card & the simplicity & elegance of it! The last card is EQUALLY GORGEOUS!!! (I thought of my daughter…she’s graduating from High School…) IT’S PERFECT!!!!!!!! :)
Becca, Becca, Becca,
These projects are absolutely stunning. You are truly amazing.
Both your cards and are soooo… Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. You are very inspirational and giving. Hugs! Patricia
So impressive, what a great idea!!! I have ALL those stamps and may just give this a try, thanks for such wonderful inspiration!!!
I’m just thrilled with all your new creations and the way you’ve incorporated the Mix & Match Sentiments. You’ve outdone yourself, Becca. They feed the soul with joy. Happy Mother’s Day!
Oh, Becca, what a wonderful post! There are so many delightful projects here!! You are simply amazing. Thank you soooooo much for sharing your genius!
I can’t wait to get your new stamps Becca. I have all your others so far and I NEED the new ones. You are just so talented. Now if I could get my stamp room table cleaned up I could get stamping:) I have made the room a mess trying to organize my ribbon so I can see what I have-I don’t have much space. (I imagine yours will be all neatly arranged by color)
I really like the Journal Sets -I have so many pieces of paper & things jotted in different books about cards, etc. that this makes a great project to get at.
I get great designs from the way the lights in restaurants shine on wall, sun comes thru the stained glass windows at church…& on & on. Now I will devote journals to this type of thing & put these ideas where I can find them again…you are just so organized and still manage to get cards & projects done. PLUS design great stamps:)
As usual your cards are just the BEST..what more can a person say
God Bless & Happy Mother’s Day
Your new line is wonderful Becca and I love your cards and journal covers. It is always so nice to be organized! Have a wonderful weekend.
Wow, you’ve been busy! Love the journal books & holder. And the cards are as lovely as ever. You’ve been in my thoughts — I hope you’re doing well. God bless!
Oh, my gorgeous! Love the set of journals. What a great idea! I might have to copy it! Have a Happy Mother’s day!
Totally, totally awesome. The journal set is sooooo neat and economical. Gotta love that. Your cards are gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing. I really love the journal idea.
The set looks like an exspensive set of bound journals with a pretty matching holder. Who would have guessed the holder was a cereal box in a former life. TFS
All the projects were lovely but my favorite is the Your Friend Always card. It’s beautiful.
Morning becca what a great card i love the colour you have used. You are one talented lady you give me so much inspiration. Take care Becca xx
Super Fantastic cards and I love your journal set especially the holder made from a cereal box! I’m totally going to do this! I use this kind of journal to keep up with my contest entries and they will be so pretty with new covers!
Love your journals and the recycling of the box, such elegant transformations, your cards are just lovely too, Beautiful flowers and designs!
Great idea! I will certainly consider giving journals like these as gifts! Also loved your idea of recycling a cereal box!
On another note,I have purchased your Mix and Match Sentiments, Just the Right Words, Large Fancy Sentiments and All in the Family Large Sentiments and love the flexibility of these stamps. I did notice however that you have not included the first person plural words WE and US. Sometimes I want to send a card from both my husband and myself. I am reminded of this now when I am looking for just the right words to congratulate our grandson for graduating from college. Just a suggestion for your next collection!
Wow, Becca, the journals are stunning, so elegant looking, and the holder, a cereal box !! fantastic, and the cards are all truly beautiful, I love them. I really love your stamps.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
Rebecca you make the most exquisite cards and little gift boxes… you must have oodles of patience to work out the measurements.. thank you so much for taking all the hard work out of it!
What a super idea to create the matching Journals and your cards are beautiful as always Becca.Your first one may be Simple to you, but Wow its so beautiful, Love the both xx
Hugs Mau xx
Some great new ideas for use of your stamps that I have in my stash!! Every project is fab… I love the set of journals (and plan to make a set), the soft femininity of the first card (which I consider your hallmark) and the unusual color combination of the last card (I never consider using those dark florals but won’t be making that mistake again!). You are always #1 in my book and I treasure your card that I have on my Wall of Fame!!
Thank you for all the wonderful inspiration today Becca. Thank you for filling our world with beauty. Wishing you a blessed Mother’s Day.
Not sure how I missed this post with the fab journal set and the delicious cards, but so glad I just found it. You are a crafting inspiration, Becca! These projects are superb!
