This week I planned to delve a little more into some of the options available to us when we use Photoshop Styles.  But I’ve become sidetracked by two adorable handmade gifts that I must share with you today!

We’ll get back to Styles next week!

Have you visited the “Hybrid & Printables” or “Cutting Files” Categories at theStudio?  You will find wonderful ideas there for all different kinds of  hands-on projects!  I think it’s great to be able to use items in our digi-stash in more ways than on a scrapbook page.

Today I am excited to share with you two projects that I hope you will find useful and just plain fun!


msbrad sent me this photo of her grandson, David, wearing a shirt that she designed, using Lil T.O.T.’s.


I love that msbrad was able to create a special and unique shirt for her grandson, using her digital supplies!  Here is how she did it:

“I bought transfer paper at my local office supply store. I created the design, then merged the layers . Then, just using the regular printer that I have at home,  I printed the design on the transfer paper, and ironed it on the t-shirt.  That’s all there is to it!”

I was so taken by this great idea, that I asked msbrad if she would mind sharing her creation with you.  She graciously agreed.  You may download her Lil T.O.T.’s pre-designed cluster ***Download No Longer Available***or by clicking on the image below.  Pick up some transfer paper and a t-shirt, print, iron, and you’ve got a great gift in minutes! (Use this cluster on your scrapbook pages too!)

happy fall y'all 2013 copy


Did you follow the Layout Artist Competition here at theStudio last month?  Patricia (patriciabb) was one of the contestants, and I am delighted to have her on my Creative Team. If Patricia’s work is new to you, you can view her gallery here.

Patricia created an adorable “Bottle Wrap”, using Lil T.O.T.’s, as well as a scrapbook page about it.  (And now you know where I got the title for this blog post!)


I can just envision Bottle Wraps for all seasons!  Or how about birthday gifts, friendship gifts, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gifts?  The possibilities are truly endless!

Patricia has shared her creation instructions with me, and I have created a PDF file for you to download with those instructions. Just click on the link below!

How to Create Bottle Wraps

I would love to see any Bottle Wraps that you come up with!  Create,  photograph, and post in your gallery here at theStudio!
