Monograms are a great way to personalize your scrapbook pages or cards. Those oversized letters and numbers are fun and trendy! I love using Monograms!
You can used a big Letter or use it to create a title.

You can create your own Monograms, by cutting out card stock or used chipboard. I love to used cereal boxes for my Monograms.

Angie DT 

Here is my monogram project. I decorated a gift bag with card stock, pattern paper by Kiwi Embroidery Paper Co., sequins, washi tape, & cut out the "L" with my Cameo. I also removed the tough cord handles and replaced them with ribbon.

Sarah  DT

Here is my L/O. This is my nephew….
I used Authentique papers and random epherema. 
The letters that spell "Aidan" were originally pink
so I used gesso, then teal paint, then heat embossed some
white/gold to change them.

Issys DT

This is an 8x8 canvas that I recycled from an old picture.
I used a robot theme, with the monogram cut out from a cookie carton and painted with red apple acrylic paint. To make it shiny, I covered the whole letter with Glossy Accents.
The robot is a printable I downloaded of the internet, and I added googly eyes and some nuts brads to it. On the top left corner, I added a few flat head nuts brads as well. Hope you like it!

My double layout, 
I downloaded the letters from the internet, I cut it out on a cereal box. I used Distress paint for the color and Distress Crackle paint. The rest of my letters are Thickers - Fuchsia Chipboards.
I used Pion Designs paper and for the brown branches, I used brown puff paint.

This is Kimberly's lovely Layout - (Thank you Kimberly)

So…. a bit about my self - well my name is Kimberly Clark - yes just like the toilet paper company!!! When I was born my mom actually wrote the company to see if we could ge a discount. I guess it was the beginning of my sale and freebie obsession! I am a mother of a 21yo old daughter, whom I have completely raised on my won, and I must say didn't do to bad :-) lol.
Sh is great only a little bit of attitude and saucyness…but I think that all children have that in them. I love to scrapbook, read and according to my daughter I am a work-a-holic. I love my job…Not everyone can say that.
I consider myself still new to the scrapping world and learning daily. I haven't completely found my style but I tend to lean towards the cutesy and a clean and simple style. The other thing you will find out about me when scrapbooking I don't go in order… so you will watch my daughter grow up over and over again….lol.
What inspires me…a picture, a paper, a sketch…just about everything. I even grab ads in the paper that catch my eye and post them all over my scrap-room.

This is Kripa's lovely card - (Thank you Kripa)

Thank you Rachelle, for the opportunity to design for Scrapping4funChallenges.
I only started paper crafting a few months ago and this is my first guest design opportunity, so I'm quite thrilled.

Currently on maternity leave; mom to a 4 month baby boy and a very active toddler who is soon going to be 3, most of my crafting happens after midnight when both kids are asleep. My roots are Indian (from Namma Bengaluru) but I now live in Sydney with my family.
I've always loved all things handmade and have tried my hand at quilling, glass painting, pottery and much more. My first tete-a-tete with paper crafting was in 2011 but it was only in mid 2013 that I seriously started scrapbooking - to preserve memories of the sweet little moments with my son who is growing up so fast! I scrap mainly 12x12 layouts but also make mini albums and cards. I love using paints, inks and combining different media in most of my projects.
It would make me very happy if you visit my blog and leave me some love.


This is Rosina's lovely card - (Thank you Rosina)
