  8. I would LOVE to make it into a wall decal for our nursery. We’ve got a couple months left before the little one arrives and we don’t yet know boy/girl and we’re having trouble coming up with names we agree on so the hard part would be coming up with the initials! Thank you!

    13cls13 at gmail dot com

  22. Hi!
    I’d use the initials for a new business I’m starting. Now if I could just settle on a name….:0)

  23. I would love a custom monogram for both wall decor and monogrammed pillows. Plus, your post just gave me a lot of ideas of other places I could put it!

  24. If I won, I would probably use it to get a vinyl cut out and put it on a large mirror in my entryway. Not sure, but I would probably use it in a vinyl form some way or another! I hope I win!

  35. My house is a definite work in progress, so I’m not entirely sure where I would use the monograms, but I’m sure they’d serve as an inspiration piece for my dining room or my living room or my sunroom or my entryway or my bedroom. Gosh, the possibilities are astounding!

  36. I love monograms! I would make notecards, frame them, and put them on pillows!

  37. Super cool! I recently got a craft cutter so I’m sure i’d come up with a million uses…. custom thank-you cards are coming to mind.

  82. I love to monogram everything. I loved the monograms that she has in the black frames. Beautiful.

It would also be fantastic etched onto a mirror, or even painted on to a set of dinnerware. I’d love to win this giveaway!

  91. I want this giveaway more than any I have ever entered. I used to have a monogram stamp with my two initials. I found it at a store in Disney. I used it to stamp the students notebooks and as my signature. Well one of those rascals stole it. I miss it so bad. OOOOOO I hope I am randomly drawn!!!!!!

  92. This is nothing short of an amazing giveaway! I would have simple linen napkins embroidered with my monogram and use them for dinner EVERY night of the week!!

  93. What would I do??? Everything! Towels, stationary, aprons, framed prints, pillows…you name it!

  98. The monogram designs are beautiful. I would use them for the handmade holiday cards I make every year.

  101. What wouldn’t I do with my own monogram! :-) I love having custom “from the mom of ” notepads so I could use them for that but also I would use them for the front door.

  110. I would use it on my blog and probably some home decor. I’m betting she wouldn’t be able to find my initials!

  111. Very cool and a perfect addition to the wall in my craftroom. Following blog and on Twitter

  112. Awesome giveaway! I would use the monograms for son’s new big boy room. Specifically, his lampshade, a pillow and on the surface of a tray!

  113. Love this! I would have it made into a address stamp – who doesn’t love “real” mail nowadays…especially fancy mail! :)

  114. I have an art wall that a framed monogram would be perfect… I would also love it for thank you cards and notes.

  115. With so many creative ways for using these monograms, I was at a loss of which one to pick – but I like the idea of being able to have monograms on furniture. Thanks for the giveaway!

  120. I would use the monogram for our new baby!! Love monograms and am so excited to have this great resource now! Thanks!!

  121. I am newly pregnant (first time mom!) and would use a huge monogram on the grey Oeuf Eco-friendly Sparrow Crib to add some flare!

    Thank you for allowing me to enter~

  123. I would use the monogram on my business cards…I would also put it as a wall sticker in my entry hall…my husband and I share the same initials.

  124. I would love to use them on some throw pillows in my office on the couch that I am in the process of re-designing. They would make a great statement in a peacock color on a beige background!!!

  125. I would use the monogram for my library book plates. I would appliqué on a linen pillow – while I’m writing this comment more ideas keep popping up in my head: I would silk screen it a tad darker than a watermark and print it on a linen tablecloth and then…. also on the corner of linen cocktail napkins. And just as Melissa who made her comment before mine, my husband and I share the same initials as well: Alfredn & Alexandra Alcantara. Love the letter “A”

  126. I have a couple of friends getting married in August and this would make a smashing gift!

  136. I would apply the custom monogram to an entertainment center in my living room. I had been looking for an embellishment to enhance the piece and I think the monogram would be fun, quirky, and unique!

  137. I’d send the set to my brother and sister-in-law to Europe. Or maybe instead of their initials, I’d pick my niece’s and my nephew’s!

  138. I would hang a framed monogram over our bed in the master bedroom, as well as add them to my dining chair slipcovers!

  139. I would use the monogram on the front door of our house. The monograms are so beautiful that everyone should see it!!

I absolutely adore every single monogram Cathe makes – seriously, how stunning is her work!! – and would be so grateful to add a little personalized sunshine in my life… maybe a wall decal for our new living room and of course new stationary to write you both a thank you note with!!

  170. I love this and could use it for so many cards, stationary, linens, logo for my new company, etc, etc etc! Simply gorgeous.

  171. Happily following Cathe from Just Something I Made….hope I win ’cause I really want this monogram!!! x

  172. I love monograms. I could put my initials on just about anything: thank you notes, business cards (have been meaning to get some of those), home decor, napkins, plates, they would be gorgeous etched in glass or on mugs, embroidered into a longchamp or other type of bag, pillowcases, i could go on forever!

  173. I love Just something I made! I now am following her. She has so many beautiful things and ideas!

  174. I’ve been wanting to add a vinyl monogram to our tub in the master bath the jazz things up a bit. It would be even more special if it was made just for us.

  175. I think this is wonderful idea. As a history and art teacher, I how she has taken something old and reworked into something so modern! I would use the monogram invitations to my house warming party!

  176. These monograms are amazing. I would make a custom set of dishes with the monogram.

  177. I am now following Cathe on twitter! So excited to see lots of great stuff.

  178. Wow these are great! I’ve always wanted something like this. If I were to win, I would use it for stationary or probably some nice pillows. Thank you!

  179. I would paste the fantastic (I already follow her and love her work!!) monogram to my forehead for fun.
    Just kidding. Just wanted to see if you read these.
    In reality, I’d incorporate it everywhere…custom stationery would be my first choice and new business cards the second!

  180. Oh my goodness, my brain is spinning with ideas. I have four kids, all have the same initials. How cool would it be to give them special monograms to make up for the monotony :) Thanks so much for the opportunity to get that started!

  181. Wow! The potential here is amazing! I think I would see if I could have some decals made to put on some of my files and binders. I would love to put them on pillow cases, too. My monogram looks funky when done by a traditional monogram machine (JCL), so it’d be nice to get one done just for me. :)

  182. Brilliant! I just lost my job and I would have stationery made to write thank you notes following job interviews and to my references.

  183. I would love a stamp with our monogram! OR a wall decal for the skinny wall in our entry!!!

  184. I’m getting married and I would loooooove to use this monogram on everything! From cocktail napkins to a custom gobo light to shine on the dance floor. If I don’t win this giveaway, I totally buying one anyways!

  185. I would use them for business cards, home decor, and probably some thank you cards!

  186. I would use these lovely monograms on dish and bath towels. I would also etch some drinking glasses!
    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  187. I follow Cathe on Twitter and have been a subscriber to her blog on Bloglines for a few months. Love both of yours! thanks!

  188. What wouldn’t I do!!! I would make a vinyl wall sticker for the entrance of our house.

  189. I would LOVE to have my fiancee and my initials used to make one of these beautiful monograms. Our wedding is next April and I’d use the monogram EVERYWHERE! Save the dates, invitations, menus, even a rubber stamp to mark gift bags, etc. Oh I’m just seeing the beauty now. What an incredible addition that would be!!

  190. I’d love a monogrammed pillow for our bed.

  192. Wow–beautiful. I’d have to put my monogram on everything–to start with, I’d embroider a very oversized version on a duvet cover! Then have note cards printed…an over-sized version framed…tea towels…

  193. I’d make a pillow or two for our (almost complete) newly redecorated master bedroom…or even plaster it right on the headboard, as I haven’t decided what to do with that yet!

  194. I’d love to frame several different variations in a collage on a wall in my office… she is so talented!

  195. I would have to start with stationary or a pillow but I could go on and on!!! My daughter’s initails are CH (with no middle name) so I loved all the examples of CH monograms in your post!

  196. I love it! I would have it silkscreened onto a pillow for our bedroom, and would probably use it as inspiration to get my personal Website done and use it there and on the coordinating business cards!

  197. I love this!! I would totally use this on my business card and may or may not get a tattoo! :)

  198. These are fantastic! I recently purchased a bunch of different “R”s to make a collage on a wall of our monogram- these would be amazing next to my other R’s!

  199. Love these! They are so original! I’ve always had a thing for monograms, and these are just gorgeous! I would love to place it above my bed, or on some pillows, or frame and collage them like in the picture. The options are endless with these!

  200. for my daughters room, we just moved and it would be beautiful for the princess!

  201. these are lovely and so regal. i think i would use mine for a pillow. at one point i monogrammed everything in site. it is time for a fresh wave.


  202. OOH! Pretty! I would use them at the entryway of my home– what a great way to welcome someone in!

  203. oh this is a good one! hmmm i could make a stamp to sign all my letters/envelopes? i could make pillows for them and put them on my bed!!!

  204. I would love to have my monogram on real calling cards. Business cards are just so….businessy. when making a social contact, it would be good to have old fashioned, beautiful calling cards to share.

  205. What couldn’t I do with a personalized monogram? Business cards, pillows, wall design, stamp my mail– the possibilites are endless. :)

  206. Boring I know, but I would use the monogram for new business cards. I am an accountant and I am tired of the staid looking business card. Also, I might use one for a throw pillow for our guest bedroom comfy chair something ala Kate’s linen and lavender idea which I have been itching to try.

  207. I have been thinking about putting a monogram on the pillows in my living room/piano studio. They need a little makeover, so this would be perfect!

  208. Wow – that’s easy. I would use it for a tattoo. I have tried many times to come up with a monogram on my own, but failed to make anything tattoo-friendly.

  209. I would love to have the pdf. so I could print it off on notecards, seals and address labels so my stationery would always have my personal touch. I love to send hand written notes to friends and family and this would give it that special touch!

  210. I would use the monagrams to personalize my stationary as well as making a transfer for some great throw pillows.

  211. Ohhh cute! I think I would use the monogram for a decorative little pillow on my bed :)

  212. I would def make some cute business cards and I love the pillow idea. Pillows on the bed would be so pretty with our monogram! I can also see it on our guest bedroom wall surrounded by pictures of our family.

  213. Pillows and pillowcases! I’ve always thought monogrammed pillowcases looked great on beds.
