green is the theme

13 March 2013

how in the heck is it March already?! somebody, please tell me where January and February slipped off to! over the past weekend i decided i should probably change out all my pink and grey for green and yellow.


i kept it suuuper simple, but i still have some plans for it (we'll see if i can actually squeeze them in this week before the actual holiday arrives...).

here's the breakdown:


i used fabric for the yellow polka-dotted banner, and as you can see i just hot glued it together. yeah baby. i did it with my chevron banner too(see here).


i used this "mambi sheets"(me&myBIGideas) paper pack i got at Hobby Lobby to create a clover banner. i looked for a link to share with you guys for this pack (because i think it rocks), but couldn't find this exact one. although i'm sure if you go into a store near you, you'd be able to find it. i got mine in January.

and for those wondering, this is how i set it up in my Silhouette Studio^^ trace a circle, trace a clover...very simple. yay! and here are some templates if you want to create your own:
moving on...


on the left: here is our "pot of gold", or rather our jars of gold. these are just pickle jars with spray-painted lids, and stuffed with sheer yellow fabric (i chose fabric over tulle here because i liked this shade of yellow better). on the right: another apothecary jar filled with green tulle, and a FREE PRINTABLE from eighteen25. love her stuff.

check back tomorrow for another free printable i'm working on!

*are you all decked out for St. Patty's Day? have any fun traditions?
my mom always had a cool treasure hunt that we went on for our own pot of "gold", and green milk and pancakes were always a huge hit, but it grosses the Mr. out. haha! i will most definitely be starting it next year when B is older though...
