Monogram Sign Project by Melissa

Here is another project I have been pushing off for a while at my house. Months ago, my mom and I had made Monogram signs to use as home decor. She finished hers; mine has been sitting on my craft shelf in the "to do" pile. I decided that it needed to be completed :o) The Letters were cut out with Make The Cut first as paper and than as two layers of chipboard. Mom chose a square background (H) while I did an elongated oval (S). Mom's is on a plate stand while I framed mine to hang on the wall. I attached a magnet to the front of the glass so I won't have to open the picture frame all the time to update the images. I haven't completed it yet as I still haven't found a background I like to go with my letter. I might eventually get a shadow frame with glass on both sides so I don't have to worry about it .. . .hmmmm . . . . .
We than cut out 3 1/4" circles from chipboard and coordinating papers for backgrounds for the months and holidays. We only did 14 total circles but I know this something I can create new ones any time I want to! With Design Studio, I cut out multiple images for the coordinating month/holiday. I also listed alternatives or additional circles below- I am already thinking of other circles to create and design!
January-Snowflake/Winter/New Year's
March-Spring/St Patrick's Day
April- "showers"/ gardening/Easter
May-"flowers"/Mother's Day
June-June Bugs/Father's Day
July-Popsicles/Fourth of July
September-Back to School/Autumn/Harvest
November-Fall/Thanksgiving/Veteran's Day
Anniversary-Heart/Cake/Wedding Bells/Rings
I assembled all of the circles adding my own personal touch to them. In fact, in this picture my circles are on the right and my mom's are on the left. Can you tell where my creativity comes from? By the way, all of the paper used is from my stash and scrap pile - -this is a great way to use those scraps!! All other supplies can be purchased at Cutters Creek. Let me know if you need any measurements or picture close-ups. Thanks for looking!
