Nichole's challenge this month was to create something monogrammed. You can find the details over here at Capture the Moment.
There are some great inspiration photos, but I did a little bit of my own thing here.
These are monogrammed post-it note covers for a few crafty friends.
Super simple to make, the wonderfully thick PTI Smoky Shadow card stock is cut & scored just a smidge bigger than the 3x3 post-its (or note pad) that is to be adhered inside.
The monogram panel is made with the Headline Alphabet die, the circle from Hello Sunshine, a Nestabilities Label die and a PTI Half & Half die.
I wanted to create a really clean & simple cover, so used the bracket die from Headline Alphabet to make a notch to slip the end of the Half & Half die into to close the cover.
A little washi tape fits perfectly along the spine!
Now onto my messed up calendar story: my aunt from Scotland gave me a 2013 calendar that has Monday in the first column, running across to Sunday. Most (all?) North American calendars run Sunday through Saturday. I haven't used a calendar like this for a long time, but did grow up with them, so was able to adjust pretty quickly.
I have been referring to the Scottish calendar a lot over the last week or so, and when I glanced at my iCalendar and saw the 25th was in the second column, I mentally said to myself "blog hop Tues". Perfect, I can finish my little project Monday night.
With a few minutes between morning drop offs, I decided to check out the new Make It Monday and quickly discovered a Blog Hop under way! I thought I had an evening to finish off my monogrammed covers, so please ignore any stray glue bits that I haven't cleaned up. It will be evening before I can head over & see what everyone else has been up to, but I am intrigued by the little sneak I've had while linking up.
Thanks for stopping by,
