Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! To end on a green note, I thought I’d share some beautiful green inspiration from around the web. Cheers!

Well Sent: Green, White & Gold

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

Today’s Well Sent comes from a St. Patrick’s Day-inspired wedding photoshoot by Rebecca Hansen. This beautiful event was designed around a green, white and gold color palette and 60’s vintage elements.

While I normally would only highlight the paper details in this column, the elements around this shoot are utterly stunning and too good not to share! Enjoy all the lovely details on the Ruffled blog and be sure to check out the full gallery as well.



Just Plain Lucky!

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Another adorable St. Patrick’s Day project to add to the list! Created by Alexandria Hedin, these Just Plain Lucky Tees are perfect for the whole family! Simple and super adorable and just the right amount of charm! Get the instructions and template from Alexandria’s blog.

Fun little story, Alexandria and I went to high school together here in Seattle and ended up working together at Starbucks in the creative department. We both went on to separate jobs and lost touch but have since reconnected through the blog world. I love the web connections and friends I’ve made over the years and I’m so fortunate to be surrounded but such talented people!



St. Patrick’s Day Cake!

Monday, March 14th, 2011

St. Patrick’s Day is only a few days away but there are still plenty of fun and creative projects to do in time. I personally like ones that involve at least a little sugar and this one definitely delivers!

I can hardly think of anything better than seven lucky layers of yummy cake! Amanda, of I Am Baker, put this beautiful shamrock cake together by gradually adding food coloring to each layer before cooking.

Wether for St. Patrick’s Day or not, I love the look of a gradated cake and hope to make one of my own some day. Truly stunning!



DIY St. Patrick’s Day Coasters

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011


No St. Patrick’s Day is complete with out a good Irish beer! Why not celebrate in style with these shamrock inspired coasters?! Substitute with sparkling cider for little ones and everyone can join in the fun!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Color Printer
Paper
Blotter paper or thick cardstock
Spray Adhesive
Craft Knife

INSTRUCTIONS
To make these printables more coaster-like, simply print template onto regular text weight paper then glue them to a thicker cardstock with a spray adhesive. I use thick blotter paper or watercolor paper which can be found at any art supply store.

Once glued together, using a craft knife, carefully trim out each coaster along solid grey line. If printed with an ink jet printer be warned that the ink may bleed when dampened. An alternative is to either print with a color laser printer or have them laminated. Sláinte!
