The Eighteen25 blog is one of my “happy places” to visit online. The blog is run by 3 sisters who grew up (and still live) in Las Vegas. They post recipes, crafts, and fabulous printables. You might say I’m addicted to their printables and I know I’m not the only one. Last time I had one of their cool signs printed at Costco, the guy at the photo counter said “I swear I’ve done a hundred of these in the last few weeks!” They bring happiness to people around the world with their simple generosity.
I subscribe to the blog in my google reader so I always know when there’s a new post.
I love their subway art prints (they are free!) and all the ideas for festive and decorative holiday displays. I downloaded this pledge of allegiance poster and filed it away for next year. I have been collecting all of the prints they have offered. Not all of them will be framed for display, I think I will scale some of them down and use them on cards, or even digital scrapbook pages. Clever, right?
I especially love that they link up to great fonts – I always find something fun to download!
I also like this tutorial for this fun book bag. I’m afraid I would always be singing the real song that this is based on though if I had this bag in my house. I’m not sure if I could control myself. LOL!
This is the subway art that I had printed at Costco to put in my crafty office. I chose to print the red and blue version pictured below. I still need to put it in a frame, but I think it will look really lively against my buttery yellow walls. One key bit of advice when printing these – be sure you UNcheck the autocorrect colors option when ordering the print from Costco. I printed a Christmas print in December and had the colors corrected and the red looked like brown.
The Eighteen25 sisters are also great at finding creative inspiration to link up to. I find a lot of ideas to “pin” almost every time I read their blog. What I’ve shown you today is just a small sampling of what you will find when you visit Eighteen25.
Hope you enjoyed today’s tour stop!
About the 2011 Summer Tour: I’ve handpicked 10 of my favorite sites for this tour. None of the sites even know they will be featured on the tour until the day of their “stop”. This is just a fun way for me to share some great online destinations for you to travel to. If you missed last year’s tour, you can find it here. The 2011 tour graphics were made with Kate Hadfield’s digital doodles, Kaye Winiecki’s paper, and Heather Hess’ font The Architect. Affiliate links used when possible, but I never link it unless I LOVE it!
