"Lucky Girl" Shamrock Green Layout

My little "Lucky Girl" is an expert at finding 4-leaf clovers! She has found 65 so far! What better page to set out to scrapbook on St. Patrick's Day?! I used green on this project so I will be entering it in the Heart 2 Heart Challenge, "Green With Envy". The papers I used are retired and from my Stash, so I am also going to enter it in the Use Your Stash Blog Hop. Their theme for this hop is "It is Hard Being Green". If you are on the hop, then you hopped here from Michelles blog.

This is my first title that I used Cricut Craft Room to weld a word! I used the Artbooking font to create the word lucky by welding the letters together. The possibilities are endless now that I know what I can do in Craft Room! Watch out world!

My 2 page scrapbook layout was inspired by the Sketch Challenge at "Let's Scrap Sketches" blogspot! You can play along with this one until the end of March. How do you think I did?

Have you been crafting using the color green, stuff from your stash, or using a sketch?

Now follow the Use Your Stash Blog Hop and hop over to Terry's blog to see what she has created with green items from thier stash!

Happy Crafting!

Chalk It Up Card #3! Ribbon and Mini Stapler!

Chalk It Up Card #3! A Thank You card. Perfect for expressing appreciation to any owl lover. (I'm one of them- that and owl are super popular right now. Trending!)

What do you think of the ribbon crinckle accent? I am in love with the mini stapler! It is such an easy and quick way to add a nice finished looking touch to any paper crafting project! I love using on ribbon accents.

Chalk It Up Card #2! Paper clip flag accent!


"NoteWorthy", a fitting sentiment for school themed papers. Could make a great accomplishment card for a new job, Graduation, you name it!

I'd been keeping an eye on the paper clip flag accent idea I had seen while surfing arount on the internet. It was time to give it a try. I think it is so cute! I love office supplies, so working some paper clips into my craft projects is super fun for me!

I almost think this card could be presented vertical OR horizontal depending on your mood at the time you write a sentiment inside. What do you think?

Hope you like my card ideas! We will be making these if you choose cards for the March 21st workshop club!

Happy Crafting!

Chalk It Up! Scrapbook Layout #3!

This is the third Chalk It Up scrapbook layout that we will create if you are able to attend the March Workshop Club! I had a lot of fun with this one! (I'm going to keep having fun with it too because I plan to make a bunch of these to have on hand to sell at my next Vendor show which is in April!)
A little stamping and some layering reminds us of an important message. "Life IS good". Stamp in Lagoon Ink onto Lagoon cardstock. Clean and dry your stamp then stamp again in the NEW Flaxen Ink onto White cardstock. Trim and layer, then embellish!
I could not WAIT to use this sentiment! It is something I say to myself as I flip through my stacks of printed photos! Therefore it is perfect for my scrapbooking, one of those photos that makes me stop and stare a moment when I flip through will go here.
Another stamping and trimming and layering accent! Love the final look! Place the trimmed and layered piece off center a bit to create a drop shadow effect!
A little sorbet on the eraser of this pencil stamp + some flaxen for the wooden part + a little journaling pen = the cutest little "this rocks" pencil!
Won't this layout be cute for school pictures you need to scrap!? Maybe you are scrapping your own childhood or that of your smallest family members?
Happy Crafting!
