JustRite, Flourishes and CHA

JustRite, producers of the monogram stampers that we've all been enjoying so much, will have a booth at CHA in Chicago next week, and Flourishes is so pleased to be a part of it! CHA stands for Craft and Hobby Association and their Summer Convention and Trade Show is being held in Chicago next week, Friday through Sunday, July 18 - 20.

JustRite has a continuous series of demonstrations and Make-N-Takes going on for the three day period, and we are so pleased to have Sharon Johnson, one of the Flourishes partners, and Susan Roberts, one of our fabulous Design Team Members, doing Make-N-Takes and incorporating Flourishes images into their projects. And as an added bonus, Jerri Jimenez, known to all as Jerri Kay at SCS, will also be making a special appearance and doing a Make-N-Take project using Flourishes images and Twinkling H20's. Jerri is a current member of the Dirty Dozen Design Team at Splitcoaststampers and we are so pleased to have her among the JustRite crew at CHA!

Here's a preview of the projects using Flourishes images that will be available as Make-N-Takes at CHA:

This beautiful bridesmaid's dress is the Make-N-Take project that Jerri will be doing. It's a little table favor box cut on an AccuCut. They are so quick and easy to stamp and assemble!!! Jerri used the magnolia image from our Lilac set to create the floral pattern on her dress, and she used some products by LuminArte to give it that extra shine and sparkle!!! The center of the tag features one of the new releases that JustRite will be announcing at CHA. A scalloped border made with the Spellbinders Classic Circle Nestabilities, a little Dotted Sheer Ribbon, a flower and Pearl finish this project off nicely!!! And check out that snazzy tux!!!

This pair of bridesmaids dresses were done by Susan Roberts. How pretty these are! Susan used our Damask background stamp to stamp white onto a vellum layer to create an overylay for the skirt. The delicate, lacey scalloped border is further adorned with beautiful little Pearls. Susan's dress bodice is Cuttlebug embossed and her JustRite monogrammed tags, also using new centers to be revealed at CHA, are cut and embossed with Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities. The rings and flowers on the yellow dress were colored with a Stardust Clear Pen. Susan also used the Dotted Sheer Ribbon and a tiny flower and Pearl at the waistline. So pretty!

Sharon Johnson created this trio for the tabletop. Both the bride (or bridesemaid) and the groom are AccuCut favor boxes and the place card was easily made using a Long Rectangle Nestability die by Spellbinders to cut the inside opening. The CHERISH is yet another of the new centers that will be available soon, and these tags were made using the Petite Circle Nestabilities by Spellbinders. The dress was stamped using Wedding Essentials and features our Black Sheer Ribbon, while the tuxedo uses Black Pearls for buttons. Although it is difficult to see in this photo, the tux was stamped tone-on-tone black with our Damask background stamp. The Inkksentials Opaque White Pen does a perfect job for writing guest names on the black paper. And going over the flourishes with a Quickie Glue Pen and fine glitter finishes off this project. Sharon has made two more items to coodinate with this trio -- a Will You Serve card and a Save the Date card. If you'd like to see them, you can find them on Sharon's Blog.
