It's Monogram Week At The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!

Greetings!  This week The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store is featuring all things MONOGRAMMED!  JustRite has created two new monogram stamp sets and this week SSRS designers are creating with monogramming in mind, and I could not be more thrilled!  Before I get to my monogram creation, here is a bit of catch up info!  Last year, in many ways, turned into 52 very long weeks.  As I begin to post more, I will be sharing bits & pieces to bring you up to date and share photos!  To begin, I would like to share with you that our youngest daughter got married last weekend!  Of course, this Momma got to add a few paper crafting items to the mix!  Let's get started!!!

Precious as it gets!  Two of our granddaughters and two of the grooms nieces were flower girls in the wedding!  Our daughter decided she did not want the traditional basket for flower petals, so we embellished little buckets!  They worked perfectly! They were purchased at Oriental Trading's online store.

With four flower girls with identical flower petal buckets, it was a must to give each their own personalization!  Not only did this help throughout the day, it made each of them to feel special to see their very own name initial. Allow me to introduce Graceful Monogram HERE. I replaced the white ribbon handle with beautiful satin ribbon that matched the wedding colors!  I added a die cut element to the bucket base using Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders that was attached with 1/8" Scor Tape.  Therm O Web Dimensionals were used to secure the large purple bloom. The blooms were purchased at Michaels!

The decorative circle border is stamped with Versafine Smokey Gray Ink and scissor trimmed.  It is adhered atop a Spellbinders D Lites Medallion Two die cut and placed upon purple cardstock allowing it to peek through!  I also placed Kaisercraft adhesive pearls on the border. HERE is the entire JustRite Graceful Monogram Set.

Here is a picture featuring two of the Flower Girl Hair Clips!  I used a bit of purple tulle behind a white sheer tinsel edged ribbon bow, a little piece of satin ribbon along with a Prima Serenade Purple Flower!  A little feather with gems for a bit of flair! 

And last but not least the reception table favors!  This is what 144 mini champagne splits  with straws look like complete with a JR stamped tag, silk ribbon bow and a Prima Serenade Purple flower!  I LOVE how these turned out!

A closer look at the tag!  Using the sentiment stamp from JustRite's Live, Laugh, Love, Vintage Labels Two Set, I stamped it with VersaFine Black Onyx Ink.  Both the stamped tag base and sentiment tag top were cut using Custom JustRite Spellbinders Vintage Labels Two Die Set. Tag top is attached using Therm O Web Dimensionals to raise it from tag base.  The tag is tied onto bottle neck using gorgeous 1.25" purple Silk Ribbon! Finishing touches, a Prima Serenade Purple Bloom glued onto bow center and Kaisercraft adhesive pearl!

Be sure to check out Sharon's BLOG, No Time To Stamp all week to see all the monogrammed creations!  HERE is Monday's post for you!  I will have one more monogram creation to share on Friday and hopefully I will have more wedding pictures to share too!  Take good care!
