Welcome to Day One with Lisa Somerville. Today Lisa has designed a monogrammed bracelet and matching jewelry box. This would be a perfect Chiristmas Gift.

While I was at CHA this summer, I stopped by the Amate Studios Booth to do a Make and Take, they have great jewelry pieces you can alter with stamped images or your Melting Pot. I was also lucky enough to receive a blank piece for altering at home, and the JustRite Monograms are perfect for these pieces. I stamped my Flourish image in pink on vanilla card stock, then used my Luxe Stamper to stamp my "K" monogram in brown ink. I placed a dot of Ranger Glossy accents in the bottom of the jewelry piece to hold my card stock in place, then poured in some UTEE that I melted in my Melting Pot. Then left it to dry.

If you're looking for these jewelry pieces to alter - Kitchen Sink Stamps is carrying them - Amate only sells wholesale. Now I just needed to create a matching box to complete my gift set.

I found my wooden box at my local Michael's store - it's neat - as the lid is a shadow box. To alter my box, I first painted it with Gesso, then let dry. Then I used my Radiant Rain Dauber in Pink Azalea to add color to my box. Once dry I stamped my Flourish images in brown, and edged my box with a sponge dauber and brown ink.

To create my monogram, I stamped my Flourish in pink on vanilla card stock, then used my Deluxe Inking Stamper to stamp my "K" in brown ink. I cut my piece to size, edged my card stock with a sponge dauber and brown ink, and placed it inside the shadow box lid. Now I've got a great gift - perfect for one of my nieces for Christmas!
