Happy New Years everyone!!!

Hi everyone! So hard to believe that another year has gone by and in a couple days, it will be 2010. Anyways, I haven't been posting much lately so I thought I'd put a couple samples on the blog.
This first box is called Box #3. It is a very big box and can hold a lot of goodies in it. Especially baked goods. I used a BAB die from Sizzix. The picture on the die shows a boy bear but you can easily make it into a girl by changing the colors on the papers you use. Here's a side view of the box so you can see how big it is.
This next box is called ornate box It is a smaller version of Box #3 but with a window cut out on the cover.
I used Hero Art's new girlie stamps to decorate the boxes. I have made quite a few to give away.
Here's a side view of this box so you can see the size in comparrison to Box #3.Also, a reminder that the store will be closed tomorrow and Friday. My husband will be having surgery tomorrow and I guess they scheduled it with the holiday so he can rest. The store will be open on Saurday.
Thanks for visiting today and we want to wish you all a very Happy New Years!!!

Sizzix shipment and extended yellow tag sale

Hi everyone! We received some new dies from Sizzix and also the carry all box is now in stock and the cute gingerbread man.We are extending our sale on all yellow tagged items until closing on Saturday December 26th. All yellow tagged items are 1/2 off the handwritten price. Some of these items were originally $20 and marked down to $9.50 and with the 1/2 off sale, it will be $4.75. I checked around the store and I saw items for $3 and less.
Here's a Christmas card that I made to send to a special friend. I used one of last years Dandelion holiday stamps, word stamp is from Hero Arts and snowflake border punch is from EK Success.Here's a sample of the new Sizzix popcorn box. It can hold quite a bit of treats. I decorated the top with a Sizzlit snowflake die and added stickles for the glitter on the snowflake.Here's the photo of the top of the box.And lastly, one of our customers made us his and hers snowman covered Hershey candy bars. Such a cute idea using punches.
Thank you for supporting us and shopping at J's!!! Wishing you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Everyone had a great time!I wasn't able to take a photo of the project we made but I will be posting it shortly.On Saturday December 19th, we'll be having a preview party of Hero Arts new stamps for 2010.

Sizzix new pillowbox die

Hi everyone! Here's a sample I made of the new XL pillowbox die from Sizzix. I textured the background using the winter set textured impressions folder. Attached is an ornament I made from the flower tag die and I cut it out of chipboard. This die comes with easy instructions to make the box.
Here is a side view of the box. Notice there is a pleat on the side of the box. This is a different version of the original pillowbox die.
This is the back of the box and the top where it looks like the pillowbox. The bottom of this box is flat so the box stands upright.
Don't forget about our make & take tomorrow from 10-12 pm. Hope to see you soon!
Have a great Friday!!!
