Monogram Notes

Yes, I'm still on the monogram kick (will probably be for awhile since I love the elegant look of these notes!). This project will be sent to my COTM (card of the month) partner for my on-line group. First, I stamped the bottom of a stack of 1/4 cardstock pieces.
Next, once again, I used a timeless template from Lauren Meader that you can find at Papertrey Ink. This one is called Desk Top Organizer and is the perfect size for creating notes for someone. This is what the template looks like before assembling.
Here's the opposite side where you can see theblack ribbon accent I've added that will be across the top when it's completed.
Partially completed - note the red line tape on one side that I still need to press down.
And voila - here's the final product. I love it!I decided the top needed some extra "bling" - here's a close-up. I hope my COTM partner enjoys her gift.

Card Tote

I've been following the Papertrey Ink blog all month as they celebrate their 2nd anniversary. So many fun things going on!! Today the challange is to use one of Dawn McVey's color combo's to create a project. I decided to use Chocolate and Raspberry (although mine is more a light pink color) on Lauren Meader's timeless template - The Take Along Tote. This the front and back of the template, before it's put together. I'm using Basic Grey paper - Sultry - love the colors in this pack!
Here I've adhered the front and back together and added pockets to both sides of the inside. You're looking at the middle of the project - there's a pocket on the left and a pocket on the right.

The pockets are going to hold a set of cards. Here's one of them. I used the stickers that came in the pack for the sentiment.
Here's one more.
Here's a shot of the front of the finished project - I'll be giving this to a friend for her birthday this week. This was a fun, easy project to do.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

This is a postcard I made for an on-line swap for the TN Stampers group. Hope you have a great day and get to enjoy chocolate in some form!

Valentine's Day Gifts

This is a sheet of Avery Address Labels. I stamped them with one of the images in Limitless Labels from Papertrey Ink, and added the heart in the middle. The ink is their new Raspberry Fizz color, which I love!
The labels fit perfectly around the Hershey Nuggets candy.
These cute tins hold a dozen of the nuggets perfectly. I made several of these for my kids and grandkids.
I included valentine cards, also. It's such fun to make gifts and send them through the mail, brightening someone's day.
