Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - February

February 25th today and time for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.






There are two things in our house that keep things running.
One is the Mother Word fridge calendar that every appointment and activity is written on for the whole family and the other is the ever growing grocery list.

Oh and making dinners, cooking, laundry, cleaning and pretty much everything else.

So for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop I made a new monogrammed grocery notepad.
I used the M of "Merci" from Think Big Favorites #3 and masked off the 'erci' for my monogram. I hope you are not getting sick of me using Background Basics Medallion so often, but it really is a stamp set that has so many possibilities. I love how every colour combination has a different effect.




Enjoy the rest of the hop!

All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.

Cardstock:  White, Spring Rain
Patterned Paper: Spring Rain Patterned Paper pack
Stamps: Background Basics Medallion, Tag Its #3, Think Big Favorites #3
Ink:  Spring Moss, Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky
Dies:  Loopy border

Oh, this is gorgeous and brilliant, and I want one just for me. And, since I have the same letter last name, I can not just CASE, but literally copy, right down to the last itty bitty bit. I wish I thought of this, and am so happy I can just make one of my own. Grocery shopping will never be the same.

Very cool, Tracey. ;-) Very clever on your masking for the 'M' monogram! And I never get tired of seeing the Medallion backgrounds - they're just so cool. ;-)

Leigh said...

Very pretty!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Wow, Tracey, you've elevated grocery lists to the stratosphere! What a stunning notepad this would be for the purse. Or, you have to promise me that you will figure out a way to attach it to the outside of your purse if you're going to use it for a grocery list, so you can show it off. And be prepared to spend a LOT of time shopping as every woman you pass will injure herself doing a double-take. You will have to stop as each one ooohs and aaahs and asks you where on earth you got such a posh pad!! I'm just saying.

Jean Martin said...

Tracey! This is adorable! Love the colors and patterns that you've combined! Wonderful! :)

Cindy H. said...

Ah Tracey, I knew you would come up with something simple and elegant. Who couldn't want to do the groceries if that have a pad that looks like this!

Vicki Dutcher said...

Helen F. said...

I love how you used the tag to circle the monogram. It looks awesome.

Suzanne Russell said...

EEK, Tracey! This is SO pretty! Such a beautiful job of stamping the background and adding just the right embellishments. You have inspired me to USE those note pads I have hoarded for so long!

Tracey C. said...

Beautiful!! I love the soft colors, and how you used a sentiment stamp for your monogram (one of my favorites!) It's so pretty, I would never want to use it :)
