Monograms with PaperTrey Ink

Happy Monday!

Thank you for coming by today for the PaperTrey Ink blog hop. It is one of my favorite events each month!

Our challenge this month was to use monograms.  I am always puzzled by how to do it.....what letter goes in the middle.  But I am pretty sure it is supposed to be the last name.  So that is how I did it.

The papers I used are from the Prima Engravers line.  Just scraps from another project.

I used PaperTrey Ink letter dies for my monogram and Spellbinders dies for the circle and the mat.  Easy peasy!

Thanks again for stopping by.  Don't forget, you can play along too.  Just create a card using monograms and link it up on the PaperTrey Ink blog.

I'll see you tomorrow with another fun project.

A little bit modern, a little bit vintage and beautifully embellished for a great take on the challenge! So pretty, Susie.

The text looks great!

Elegant design and I think you got your monogram down (how much more confusing it is when you have more than three! Think of those "poor" royals). Thanks for the inspiration.
