Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Here is a layout I did a while back... it is from St. Patrick's Day last year.... You see the striped paper that is cut so pretty? Well it was actually just a regular piece of 12 x 12 paper. Here is the tip for the day... it's small, but one I use a lot...

Paper lines these days are coming out with all sorts of shaped papers. I love them! What I do when I get a new "shape" is trace it onto a thick piece of cardstock and the cut it out to use as a template. It works great! I can use as much or as little as I want of the template and I can use it on whatever paper I would like. This is just a great way to make your supplies, in this case paper, work for you.

Hope you have a great day. I have to go find my hat to wear today!
