st. patrick's day :: t-shirt downloads

3.02.2011  at 11:44 AM
My BFF and I both share March birthdays...hers on St. Patrick's Day and mine 11 days later. We're making plans to get together, she lives near Nashville, in April. Sadly, it's been a year since we've seen each other, but happily she's been by my side since 8th grade {go Hilltoppers!} and she always has a plan, a smile and a laugh waiting for me!

Since there's not a drop of Irish in me, I put a new twist on an old phrase and flipped the image so that I could make an iron-on transfer out of it, using Avery 3271. What do you think?

I'll admit that this is one time Gordon willingly took a photo for me. Could have been when I said, "just take a photo of the words, not my face." Hmmmmm, what were you thinking Monika? And in true fashion, he took one shot. Me? I would have taken several shots from different angles. Mars and Venus, right?

You could even use the iron-on on some nice cream-colored linen and frame that. Now, that would be sooooo cute! Or, how about wrappng the linen around an art canvas and have a custom, modern piece of St. Patty's Day art!

I listed a few new DIY mini-album/journal kits in the shop. 

I used one similar to this kit to craft a mini-journal to house all my favorite quotes. The great thing about this project is that I can always add more pages, as I add more quotes, since I used a book binder ring, rather than my Bind-it-All.

Here are a few pages I've already included. They took so little time and make me smile!

The first page I created will serve as my cover and uses a transparency, a small shipping tag and some chipboard letters. I used my 1/16" inch hole punch to punch holes to thread my floss through, much easier than trying to pierce it with the needle!

The second page uses some washi tape I purchased from this Etsy shop.

The third page uses this stamp and happens to be a phrase I say quite often.

The fourth page uses a die cut shape, the patterned paper and stamp are from Stampin' Up.

The fifth page uses a Post-It note for me to write my quote on.

And how about this cute mini-mini I made using glassine bags, it's fashioned after a matchbook cover. I might tweak it a little, but what a sweet way to gift the kids' school photos to the Nana's and Oma's out there!

Did you know...

...and I'm glad you're here.
