Nana's Armoire - Lace Monograms

Being the incurable romantic, nothing sets my heart aflutter more than finding delicate pieces of heirloom lace. It holds in its weave and pattern the romance and dreams of distant generations. Lace handkerchiefs are always a special find and this piece of lace still takes my breath away.

To this square of gossamer, heirloom lace, I added a curvy vintage font and enhanced it an rich embroidered texture. This pack contains the entire alphabet A-Z in capital letters. These are perfect page accents for your wedding, birth and heritage pages. I have included a closeup picture so that you can see the lovely detail of the lace and letters.

Scanned at extremely high resolution and crafted at 300dpi, these monograms will size perfectly for all your layouts and craft projects. A drop shadow has been added to the preview image for display purposes. The lace looks best when given a slight shadow and placed on medium to dark backgrounds.

Nana's Armoire

As a young girl, my grandmother's linen armoire was a source of magical adventure for me.

Shelf upon shelf bursting beneath the weight of fabric, lace and trinkets. There were swaths of heavy French linen, delicate almost gossamer pieces of German and Belgium lace and small tins filled with buttons so beautiful they were more like jewelry. Whenever I stayed with her, I would always find my way to the cupboard and spend hours wrapping myself in the marvelous fabrics and trims.

Such is the inspiration for this new collection, Nana's Armoire.

Aged fabrics and textures in shades of taupe and cream, mother of pearl, silver and gold. I believe these papers and embellishments will add just the right touch of heirloom magic for your layouts, cards and paper crafts.

Available in both personal use and S4H/S4O licensing, this lovely kit can be purchased here on this blog - or through my store at
