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!
My daughters love to decorate the house for each of the holidays, and the other day my youngest was wondering where all of our St. Patrick’s Day decorations were. She was right. Our home wasn’t looking very festive. So I decided to sit down at my craft table and make something new for this year.
I created a frame using SVG Cuts using a cut file from the Santa’s Helpful Elves SVG collection and then decorated the inside with this shamrock cut file from the Silhouette store. The papers I used are from the Graceful Season collection by 3 Birds Studio. I LOVE these sweet delicate patterns! Here is a sneak peek of the finished project. To see the full project and to read more about how I put it together, come say hello on my post at the 3 Birds Blog here. It was so much fun to make and has brought a touch of happy green to our entry way side table.
Have a great day!
