Hello and welcome to day 2 of the St Patrick's Lucky Day Blog Hop. I'm so glad you are hopping along today. I am glad you are back and hope you are enjoying yourselves along the way. If you have arrived from Maria at http://marlm-creativebydesign.blogspot.com/ then the magical leprechauns have been leading you along the right path. If you've just stumbled upon my blog or are reading it in a reader or via e-mail, please be sure to go back to Angela's blog to start at the beginning. There are wonderful projects and special blog candy under some lucky clovers along the way


My first project is a tag I made. I had fun making action wobbles on this tag. I learned how to make these thanks to a WONDERFUL tutorial that Amy did on her blog at Love to Crop. I can't thank her enough for this tutorial. :)

Tag-cut with Sizzix, stamped and heat embossed

Clover-cut with Martha Stewart Punch All Over The Page Heart Punch

Circle cut with Martha Stewart Punch All Over the Page Circle punch, Pot of Gold/Rainbow stamp CTMH & colored with Copic


Tag was Recollections paper, cut with sizzix.
Stamp is Inkadinkado, Tim Holtz Distress Peeled Paint ink and American Crafts Zing Embossing Powder.

The Shamrock was Colorbok paper, punched with Martha Stewart punch, home made wobble spring, Making Memories brad,

The Pot of Gold is Colorbok paper, punched with martha Stewart punch, stampped with Close To My Heart stamp, colored with Copic markers.


This faux quilted square is a project I did last year. I bought the project kit at a craft fair last spring & unfortunately don't remember the name. It is a styrofoam core with a soft foam over layer/ It then has the pattern laser printed onto the foam & laser cut into the top layer of foam. There was a paper "pattern" guide sheet  and list of the number of each cut I needed for the pattern. I enjoyed this and was very happy with the end result. I have another kit I"m working on and want to finish but I'd like to get some more of the largerIt was very relaxing.


  

I hope you enjoyed my projects.  I love getting comments so please be sure to leave me some love. Your next stop along the way is Shelly please hop on to her next. The entire hop lineup is below in case you wander off path along the way.

So cute- that quilt square is neat. I love your tag- the embossing really shows off the stamp well and the hearts made a great clover. Thanks for sharing where to find a tutorial on wobble making.

Well Hello Sweetie! I hope you're feeling well. So glad to see you in this hop. I love your projects and am so glad they are therapeutic for you. :) I especially like your tag! I still haven't used action wobbles or made my own yet! :( Been wanting to, but haven't felt too good lately. It's all I can do to whip out a card here and there! And I know you know what I am talking about with pain/illness getting in the way of our fun! :p I want to thank you so much for your super kind comments on my blog! It made me so happy that you liked my card so much! :0) So happy, in fact, that I would like to send it to you if you don't mind. ;) I just need you to shoot me your address please and I'll send it out to ya! Consider it an RAK. :)
