Go Green Challenge with Craft Hoarders...

Today we have an awesome challenge up just in time to create for St. Patricks day
 just around the corner.  I have 2 parts of me from that beautiful Celtic island
so i dug deep into my stash and found some of my favorite papers
that i put away from Best Creation.  

To make my book i started with a chipboard staggered book that i had and covered
the front and back with the bordered paper so that it would all match.  I had
the perfect sentiment to stick on it so that part was really easy.  Then i tied some
glittery green tulle on the side and layered a flower that i had and a flower that i 
made in plaid to match and glued that on the bottom left.

Here is a shot from the top so that you can see all the layers in the book.
It's a great way to show off all those pretty papers in a book that you have
hoarded away through the years.  I just chalked my edges to give it more color.

Here is the inside and i used die cuts from the paper collection that i cut
out and added flowers with just a bit of bling to go with the glittery embossing
on the papers.  This set really had great papers to work with and it was
really fast and easy to make it.  The other Celtic die cut that i used is
from Spellbinders and I have used it alot of different ways.

Here is another view just simple and i have some fun pictures to put in
it of my grandmother who was from Ireland and my husbands Grandfathers
side who were from Cork.  Someday i hope to get there and will have more
photos to add to it I hope.  Ireland is such a beautiful place and i can't wait to go.

And lastly here is another page that i did.  I really took advantage of the borders
and pretty details on my paper and used the letters and tags just as accents.

And that's all from this little irish/german girl today and don't forget to make
something amazing and share it with us on the Craft Hoarders Blog too. And
be sure and check out all the other projects from all the girls on the team!!

Irish Blessings to you all and Happy St. Patrick's Day!!



  1. Love the book, but it's not St Patrick's Day until the 17th! (and I hope it warms up before then, or all the Irish parades will be frozen or soaked.
