Altered Art

It has been a pleasure working with Dawn and we are so thankful that she shared her creativity with us all week. We hope you enjoyed these projects and will continue to visit Dawn at her blog Dawn's Stampin Thoughts which has been added to our blogroll to the right. Monogramming isn't limited to just card making. With this stamper you have the ability to load it up with different size letters allowing you to personalize with more than just a monogram. There is enough room to spell out names or short words.

My best friend Diane gave me these coasters a while ago and I am sad to say I don't even now if they are still available at Hallmark. As soon as I saw the Monogram Stamper I knew I had to alter these coasters. How perfect to make every day items personalized for your family & friends? You can personalize gifts for weddings, anniversaries and birthdays. These particular coasters are for me and will be used in my home.

This was actually the first project I made with the Monogram Stamper and I knew right from the first name I stamped that I was in LOVE with JustRite. The Monogram Stamper is so easy to work with and I LOVE that I have the ability to create my own sayings/greetings/sentiments. Total creative freedom!

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder for my background & keeping with the black and white theme for the coasters I printed out the photos in black and white wallet size. The size of the coaster area for scrapping was a 3 1/4 X 3 1/4 and the monogram stamper works perfectly weather you use punches or the Coluzzle Cutting System for whatever size project you are making. I used the Stampin Up! 1 1/4" Circle and the 1 3/8 circle punch for our names in the coasters.

The best part of this project is not only can I use these as drink coasters but they will also look fabulous displayed on my shelf too.

Thanks for stopping by and happy monograming !
