Monograms...

All of a sudden life has become hectic, leaving me very little spare time for crafting...the weekend is flying by already. I hate being so rushed...it does nothing for my inspiration.

Anyway, with what little inspiraion I had, this was what I created yesterday....a little stationary set using my new Justrite monograms.


I used the "Card Catch All" templates by the very talented Lauren Meader.

This is the main holder...very versatile as it is quite large and could hold all sorts of lovely things.

I used Hero Arts stamp "Leaf Flourish" and stamped in navy ink. The beautiful ribbon is by...wait for it...Clinton cards!! It has lovely sheen and it is lightly wired so holds it's shape really well.

Finally I made a little boxelope using a Woodware template, and made wrap with navy card.

Although I did enjoy making these little creations, I think I can do much better with these fab templates given more time and will definitely use them again in the future.

In the meantime, I'm off to make the most of the rest of today, see you soon!

I was just thinking about you, wondering if everything was ok. So I was very happy to se your gorgous creations show up in my bloglist.

I love the way you use big ribbons and bows, it is so bold but jet so elegant beause the rest of your card (or box) is so clean and elegant. They make a striking combination!

Take care!

Mvh

Love the flourish, the clean look, and of course, the template/holder! I love Lauren's templates and have been enjoying them since her PTI days...so nice that she has been able to branch out on her own. And even better that you are playing with them and offering oodles of inspiration! :>

I hear you on the time just whisking away. I am swamped right now. But, trying to keep swimming, so to speak. Hang in there, can't wait to come back and visit! :>
