TGIF, crafty friends! It’s been a big week and we are excited to head into the weekend. It will be nice to get crafty and creative as we unwind from all the doings in the country and in the world. Today, we thought we’d get a head start by sharing two projects from two of our lovely designers, Shannon White and Charmaine Ikach. They each created beautiful monogram projects and we can’t wait to share them with you! Check them out…



First, Shannon shares a gorgeous notecard set she created with a beautiful cutting plate and alphabet die…


A Note from Shannon…

I have always loved TE’s Bold Lace Cutting Plate and have always thought it would make beautiful notecards for gifts for my friends and family members. These were so quick and easy to make too, so you know there are already many more sets in the works for gifts this year!  After creating my card bases with various TE Premium Cardstock sheets, I adhered my Bold Lace Cutting Place die- cuts with a bit of liquid glue. I topped each one of them off with Layered Stitched Circles die-cuts just big enough to showcase the monogram letters created with the help of TE’s Poster Graphic Alpha Dies.


And for my fun gift packaging I used TE’s Clear Card Boxes and Band-It 2 dies in coordinating colors for each notecard set and topped them off with the matching monogram letter.




Next us is Charmaine with a beautiful card using our new Initially line of dies…


A Note from Charmaine…

With the new Initially A-Z series of dies that recently came out, I knew I wanted to create some monogram notecard sets as gifts!  I used the Initially C die along with the Notable Blooms set to create this card. I stamped the corner image of flowers in the corner of the card and colored them with Copic markers. I also stamped, colored and die-cut the single flower so that I could decorate the monogram with it.  I love how simple, but sweet this turned out — and it didn’t take too much time at all!


Thank you so much, Shannon and Charmaine, for sharing your beautiful projects with us today! Have a joyful weekend!
