10 March Guest Designer St Patricks Day on...
Today I am a Guest Designer on http://creativecraftin.blogspot.com I am so excited and I thank Angela for letting me be a part of her blog and blog hop, in which will be the 17 & 18th March.
So don't forget to come back and hop with us, starting with Angela atcreativecraftin.blogspot.com on the 17th March - St Patricks Day Blog Hop..
Even though I am part Irish, have the red hair (or at least used to, now mostly grey) I just think it's fun to celebrate the GREEN day regardless of your heritage background!!
Starting out with 8 x 10 mat with a 5x7 opening, I used the paper and cut what I wanted to focus on this frame. I also used the words from the cricut cartridge Word Collage - St. Patty's Day. Using Imagine Vinyl and the color green from the preset colors on the Cricut Imagine. I just used some of the words within this awesome cartridge.
** The green doily on the corner is from our LLS that I thought was awesome, so no idea who the company is as they opened a package and sold them each. The "LUCKY" is from the Word Collage cartridge cut words. I used the Gold stickles to outline the clover surrounding LUCKY!
** The paper inside the frame is a sheet of patterned paper from Karen Foster Designs (kiss me I'm Irish collage) I just cut out what I wanted to focus on. I used Gold Stickles to highlight the 2 bags of gold as well as the lil Leprachaun buttons on his shirt.
** the buttons are from simplicity wood group; they are wooden buttons. The top button has gold Stickles inside of it and glued to the bigger button. The O in gOld has gold stickles too.
** ribbon is from a set of ribbon for St Patty's Day.
this is the vinyl cut-out from the cartridge Word Collage. It is on Imagine Vinyl. I didn't set the pressure properly, therefore only pulling a few of the words off of it.
