One Set, Two Different Ways: Monogram Alpha

SSS 05302014 sneak

Hello, it’s Amy T, I’m back!  Since May has 5 Fridays, this is my bonus post!

So, I’m a huge fan of Pinterest and of quotes…team that up and you have my Quotes board!  There’s a trend with black backgrounds and white caps…THIS particular one inspired this post:

SSS 052014 One Day

I started off with a tall skinny card, 3.5 x 5.5.   The Monogram Alpha is PERFECT for this style of project.

Monogram Alpha


I combined it with the retired Monogram it botanical bloom/leaves.

In the past I’ve cut/scored black cardstock bases, but I’m trying to get away from that because then I have to remember to line the interior of the card with a lighter color panel.  So what I’ve done is cut/scored a white base and covered the front with the same size panel in black.

This PIN inspired my second card, although I changed up the wording a smidge:

SSS 052014 i love you and naps

Are you inspired by quotes?  Are you on Pinterest and have a board dedicated to them?  I would love to follow your boards so make sure you leave me a comment.  Did you know that the fabulous Sweet Stamp Shop is on Pinterest?  Check it out HERE.
