The Stamps of Life-Monograms!




Second card is out for Publication!

Hello!  Today I have two cards using the newly released monogram2build and alpha4monogram sets by The Stamps Of Life.  I used my Crate Paper Restoration DP for both of these cards.  On the first one I used a sewing machine to stitch around the panels, and the second card I used a paper doily behind my monogram stamped on the doily cut from the Crate Paper DP.
When you make monogram cards, do you like to use your last name initial or first name?  I do both, but I think I prefer my first name, since it seems more personal.  My mom disagrees! LOL!  She thinks it should be your last name if you are just using one letter, but maybe she is a bit old fashioned?!?
I am fighting some nasty intestinal virus, so don't know how much creating I will do today.

I hope you all are well, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Ooooh I love the mongram ideas! These are sooo sooo terrific! I like how you stamped on the doily as well! I guess since were both named Emily, we both think alike because I used Restoration dp's on a card I made tonight too!! Hahaha

These monogrammed cards are super sweet, Emily!! I think I remember my mom telling me eons ago that for a single letter monogram, women should choose their first name (because the last name could change!!). I know, an old-fashioned "rule", but because of it I think I prefer using my first initial. :) I hope you are feeling better soon!!!!
