A Gift for a Friend

I just can’t say enough about how much I love the monogrammed stampers from JustRite Stampers.  I’m looking forward to all the new sets they are coming out with for the holidays.  Well, there you go, what a perfect gift for a stamper friend (or yourself, go ahead . . . treat yourself . . . you deserve it!).  The possibilities are endless for all the different projects that you can make for family and friends during the holidays.   While at CHA I had an opporunity to get a peek at the new designs and let me tell you they’re not just for monogramming, there are several sets that are perfect for gift tags, not to mention cards and other items.  I know you are all going to be thrilled when you see the new toys!

Using the large round monogrammer I made this monogrammed gift set for a wonderful friend for her birthday.  I actually made the ensemble a couple of months ago.  It was an easy project and didn’t take too much time.  Stacey’s birthday is in July, a couple of weeks ago I got together with a group of friends at The Cheesecake Factory to celebrate the happy occasion.  Stacey was thrilled to receive the monogrammed gift set of cards (10 cards and envelopes) together with the box to store them in.

    Jerri, this is an awesome gift for your friend and I know she was thrilled to get it! One question, did you just cover the box, or did you actually design and make it from cardstock?

    Gorgeous as usual, Jerri! The box tutorial would be appreciated! Just purchased the JustRite stamper set and several other JustRite sets and am so anxious to try all the possibilities! Which Basic Grey dp did you use? It’s so elegant and works so well with the monogram! Thanks for sharing and inspiring!

    What a wonderful idea. I love the fact that there is a box to store them in. Now you have inspired me to make up a set to my mother’s birthday in October. I usually make her a batch of cards as she is the old-fashioned writer who prefers to send her wishes via snail-mail instead of email…but I never thought to make a coordinating box! AND monogrammed cards would be just the thing for ANY occassion! Thank you for the inspiration!

  12. What a fabulous gift!!! You know how I LOVE gift sets, and this one is the cream of the crop — totally gorgeous!!! What a lucky friend — I can just imagine her delight!!! Beautiful, as always!!!
