Monogram Makeover

Add a personalized touch to your creative surroundings with monograms. This hip decorating tips is as easy to master as it is affordable to apply. Start your letter collection at home with your own crafting supplies and build from there with craft-store, stationery-shop, and home-décor store options. Before long, you'll have an eclectic collection to be proud of!

Monogram Option #1: Scrap Supplies

Thanks to chipboard, rubber stamps, and even patterned paper, letter accents are already in your possession. Rather than tuck those away in their assigned locations, why not pull them out where they can double as room décor?

Monogram Option #2: Home Décor

Monograms are making the home décor scene. With cool products including wall art and throw pillows, you're sure to find stylish options that have your name written all over them.

Monogram Option #3: Craft-Store Finds

The next time you make a craft-store stop, wander beyond the scrapbooking aisle to the alterable and wood items. These are excellent sections to score some new letters for your shelves. And all it takes is a little paper, paint, or ink to make them true to you!

Monogram Option #4: Stationery-Shop

Don't let this category fool you-stationery shops (and the stationery aisle of your local big box stores) are full of more than just pretty paper and fancy envelopes. They often times carry an assortment of magnets and decorative items that would make an attractive addition to your home.

Pink typewriter
In the May/June issue, in My Creative Space, I spotted a little pink typewriter on Margie's shelf. Does anyone know where I can find this little typewriter? It would be perfect for journaling! My email is JBLdy@aol.com. Thanks all!!
