My house was needing some fun color to help us get ready for Spring, so I created this fun St. Patrick’s Day home decor piece using the Shimelle Box of Crayons collection
I love creating home decor for the seasons and holidays, but I don’t really have all that many things for St. Patrick’s Day. That’s when I decided to use the Shimelle Box of Crayons collection
, with it’s rainbow of colors, to create my own rainbow for St. Patrick’s Day!
I created the letter boxes using a the Lucky 3D Letter Box Set
and Lucky Letters
cut files by Snapdragon Snippets (Designs #181270
in the Silhouette Design Store). Each dimensional box letter is decorated with the enamel dots
for a bit of sparkle. I used the same color as the patterned papers for tone-on-tone texture.
I love the rainbow patterned papers (Spell It Out paper
and Writer’s Block paper
) I used on the letters “L” and “K.” They tie everything together and the navy background of the brightly colored allow the embellishments I added to them to just POP!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
My youngest daughter did the most adorable thing for our family last St. Patrick’s Day. She made signs and love notes for each person telling us how much she loves us and how lucky she feels to be in our family. I couldn’t wait to document her cuteness using the Simple Stories St. Patrick’s Day Simple Set
I used pictures of her holding a “Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Family!” sign for the main photos on this page, but I also wanted to include images of the other notes she had created. My solution? Tags!
I used a manual die cut machine to create a couple of tags (you could also use tags purchased from an office supply store), added photos and journaling to them, and then tucked them in between the layers of my page design!
Next, I used the “LOVE” letters from the St. Patrick’s Day 6×12 Stickers
as the main word in my title, Then I sprinkled the floral and heart stickers around the page for a girly feel!
I loved the navy 3×4 journaling card
with the rows of shamrocks with a single heart and wanted to incorporate it into my page design somehow. I decided to place it to the right of my photos as an additional background layer.
Next, I punched the “charmed life” circle from another 3×4 Journaling Card
to add navy to the other side of the page. The “So Very Lucky” banner sticker
below the title repeats the navy color around the page, grounding the design and creating a visual triangle.
Have you created a page lately about the people that you feel “lucky” to know? The St. Patrick’s Day Simple Set
is the perfect way to do it!
Are you feeling inspired to get your scrap on today?
St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and I couldn’t resist scrapbooking my little leprechaun with the Echo Park Paper Lucky Charm mini theme from last year.
I used a few papers from my stash to build up my background and then placed a block of photos on top.
I placed my photos in opposite corners of a block of the rainbow side of the Lucky Charms Journaling Cards paper and then filled in the corners with the cut apart journaling cards and other patterned papers.
In the top right corner I dotted the letter I with white enamel dots, and added a piece of the clover side of the Lucky Charm Lucky Clover paper.
In the bottom right corner I typed my journaling with a typewriter and then added it to a block of the script side of the Lucky Charm Lucky Clover paper.
I added a bit of washi tape, and some of the Lucky Charm stickers accented with Yellow Queen & Company Button Bouquet buttons.
My daughter left this cute and colorful note for our family on the morning of St. Patrick’s Day last year and I couldn’t resist taking a picture of it and adding it to this page. She is my holiday girl and dressed so cute in her green for the day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of you! Today I will be spending the day with this cutie at our School District’s History Fair. This little cutie of mine was selected along with 4 other kids in her class to have her project displayed on the district level. I’m so proud of her! I know she is a bit nervous about today, having to dress up all fancy, and patiently wait her turn for the judges to come around and listen to her present her project, but I know she will do a fabulous job!
I shared a sneak peek of my 3 Birds Shamrock frame with you last week, but thought I would post the full project here on my own blog on the actual holiday. You know … to dress the place up a bit, and put a little “green” on so my blog doesn’t get pinched. Hehe!

Wishing you a Pinch-Proof Day!
