Pull out your letter stamps and alphabet dies and create something monogrammed!  It can be a gift for someone special or a treat to keep for yourself!  You could monogram a set of notecards, stationery, coasters, journals, home decor or anything else you can dream up!  Have fun and experiment with combining different fonts, pairing up stamped & die-cut letters, pull-out neglected patterned papers to use as backgrounds, add texture with impression plates and you can even play around with with unique color combos!  We can hardly wait to see what YOU create!

I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project.  This type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.  

You have until 11:30pm EST tonight (February 25th) to add your link to this list.  THREE random participants will be selected to win a $25 PTI Gift Certificate to spend however they choose.  They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, tomorrow morning.  We look forward to seeing all of your creations!



Carol aka Krillsister  used the Berry Basket die to create these adorable little monogrammed Easter baskets.  So, so clever to use an egg shape to mat the die-cut letters.  I also love the decorative edging she added to the baskets.  Just the perfect touch!

Angela Person created a beautiful wreath to frame her monogram.  The way she used a second more simple wreath image inside the decorative one was the perfect way to ground everything and not have too much white space.

Jessica Wekenman made a bold and bright monogrammed notecard using her own initials.  I just love the mix of trendy patterns as well as the awesome Raspberry Fizz and Royal Velvet color scheme!

Congratulations to all the winners!  Please contact Customer Service and provide the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to.  And thank you to all of the other participants!  There were some AMAZING projects shared this month!  I think everyone will be inspired to create several different kinds of monogram projects throughout the coming weeks!
