I would like to publicly thank Dannie Graves for making my life easier this year! She has these fabulous monogrammed stationery sets with a holder on her blog that completely solved my dilemma of what to give Eve’s teachers for the holidays! She even has a great video tutorial on how to make the portfolio for them! Here are the first three that I made.
They each use a different designer series paper. The set with the “K” uses Georgia Peach Paper and card stock and ink in Old Olive, Regal Rose and So Saffron. The ribbon is the Regal Rose 5/8″ Grosgrain. The set with the “G” uses Mane Blueberry Paper and card stock and ink in Old Olive, Not Quite Navy, and Bashful Blue. The ribbon is the Bashful Blue Strip Grosgrain. The set with the “T” uses Bella Rose Paper and card stock and ink in Riding Hood Red, Kiwi Kiss, and Pink Pirouette. The ribbon is the Kiwi Kiss Striped Grosgrain. All of them use the Lovely Letters Stamp Set for the monogram initials, as well as the 1 1/4″ circle punch, 1 3/8″ circle punch, and scallop circle punch.
I put 6 cards in each packet, making two each of three different color combinations. This is what the Bella Rose pack looks like on the inside:
And here is a closer look at the three different note cards.
I’m having fun making these, and hope the recipients enjoy them as well! Only four more to go!
