Welcome to the Paper Trail Blog Hop for January featuring La Belle Vie! You've either come from Linda's blog - The Paper Taylor, or are starting here and will move along the trail! Either way, enjoy the artwork!

My first example is a card featuring the Stamp of the Month for January - S1301 Happy Valentine's.

Next is a fun layout! I have to admit that I did not free hand cut the pig - he is from a Cricut cartridge called From My Kitchen.

Monogram Card Sets

I made these cards using basically scraps, for a lot of special ladies in my life. I put the card sets in a decorated box from Michael's, and made a coordinating pen to match each box. The boxes were 60% off. Everyone seemed to like them!


Special card and gift

I received this beautiful card from CTMH and Jeanette Lynton with a special gift for being a Dirctor with CTMH. I'm honored to work for such a wonderful company. I am grateful to have the opportunity to lead an amazing team of talented Consultants!

A Perfect Personalized Gift!

Need a last minute gift for your favorite papercrafter? Make it special by giving a monogram stamp - first or last name initial! Want to send a very special message? Spell out a word or phrase for your recipient - friends, love, family, sister, miss you, etc. Another great idea - spell out a new baby's name, last name for a newly or soon-to-be married couple, or your favorite place or city - camp, cabin, at the lake, beach, Anytown, USA!
