PTI Make It Monday #59: Computer Generated Sentiments on Die Cuts

This week Papertrey Ink has a tutorial and challenge hosted by Erin. She has shown us how to create our own sentiments and personalized messages for our paper crafting projects. If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can find all the info here.

I loved Erin's idea of creating bookplates for someone special. What a great idea for our special teachers!! I went right to work experimenting with getting my text in the right space and sizing.

Here's where craft supply-hoarding comes in handy ... before going out to buy printable sticker sheets, I decided to check the spot (in my mess) where, IF I had some, it's where they'd be. I honestly don't remember buying them, but there they were - a brand spanking new pack of printable sticker sheets! :)

I printed out my personalized sentiments:

Then stamped them with Mat Stack 3, and images from Tag-Its #6:

Then, I die cut them out using Erin's method - so easy!

I really like how they turned out. When I decide on a single color scheme, I plan to make up a set to gift to the kids teachers. So fun! I hope they like them!

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Mat Stack 3, Tag-Its #6
Ink: Blueberry Sky, Spring Rain, New Leaf, Pure Poppy, Fine Linen, Basic Grey (SU)
Dies: Mat Stack 3, Limitless Layers 1 3/4
Other: Label Paper (Avery #48165)
