Edith, I would suggest that you subscribe to the blog by e-mail. In the left sidebar there is a box that says "Never miss a post" and a big "subscribe" button. New posts will be delivered to you by e-mail and can be printed for your binder without all the other stuff. Hope this helps! (I'll send this reply to your e-mail, too, in case you don't check back on the post)
Jan, you can buy it from the My Sweet Petunia website. http://mysweetpetunia.com/product/misti-screen-printed/
