JustRite Stampers is so excited to be this week’s sponsor of another great CPS Sketch. Thank you Tami for the great sketch. And a huge hug to all the design team members for their fabulous projects.

If you haven’t been to the JustRite Website or blog lately….you will want to run…not walk to see this month’s releases. www.justritestampers.blogspot.com or www.justritestampers.com. We have already released this month 5 new stamp sets.

JustRite has a new illustrator on board and you are going to love our new look. We have added colorable images to our design mix. JustRite is now releasing mini releases throughout the year. TODAY we are releasing for sale on our website our two newest sets. JB 08670 Witch Way to the Treats – 10 fun designer centers and borders for our new 1 3/16” stamper which is just cute as a button. Our second set is JB 08703 Autumn Blessings which is designed to fit our Large Oval Stamper 2 ¼” x 3 1/16”.

So what better way to celebrate this week’s release than giving all of Wednesday’s release plus a few more goodies to one lucky winner!!

This Week's Prize--Cards: Beautifully Handmade

Good Monday Morning! If you have been with us very long here at CPS you probably know that Wednesday is the day we tell you about our weekly sketch sponsor. Well, today is not Wednesday (for those of you beginning to panic) but we are going to tell you about this week's special prize sponsor a couple days early for anyone who might want to get started on this great class starting today. This week is a sponsor free week as far as the card designs are concerned but we have a very special prize to give away at the end of the week! If you checked out the sponsor logo in the sidebar you have already gotten a peek of this week's prize. (If you haven't then shame on you! lol) So, now to tell you more about it.


Looking for something to creative to do this summer? Join Tania Willis in Cards: Beautifully Handmade and in three weeks you'll have a big stash of beautifully detailed, handmade cards your friends and family will treasure.

This is the perfect summer class-- grab your scraps and trimmer, some adhesive, a basket of extra embellies or your favorite stitching tools, and settle onto the porch to create. The children in your life can craft along next to you.

Tania will show you tons of awesome ways to add detailing that wows, and she'll inspire you to look at the goodies in your stash in new ways.

Registration is Still Open: $25

Class runs with 2 sessions per week on Mondays & Thursdays starting July 13 for 3 weeks and includes 6 downloadable lessons and online teacher interaction in a private forum. Frequently asked questions regarding Tania's online class can be seen by clicking here.

I'm sure anyone who wins this great prize will love it. For your chance to win all you have to do is create a card using this weeks sketch and your favorite supplies. Link it up here on the blog and we will draw a random winner on Saturday evening :)
