Lucky Irish Lass Greetings


Hello friends and fellow crafters! I’m wishing you the luck of the Irish today with this fun and festive greeting card.


I just love having holiday themed chippies from GSL to create with because it allows me to scrap my stash and create great cards and decor.

This larger frame is just perfect for big cards like this one…it really fills in the space generously.

I’ve substituted 4 leaf clovers for leaves in the flower arrangement and layered them up with twine and seasonal embellishments.

Speaking of luck….an upturned horseshoe will catch all the luck and good tidings : )

I think this card would make a great addition to holiday decor displayed with fun and festive seasonal items : )

I used my favorite embossing powders to finish the chippies before I added them to this card. A few coats of Stickles are added for  super glittery and shiny four leaf clovers : )

Saint Patrick’s Day Banner & Kit


Hey there and happy Tuesday!  I’m just dropping in to share a super fabby banner I created for St Patrick’s Day. It has so many festive details and fun embellies!st-patricks-banner-holiday-home-decor-pollys-paper-studio-handmade-01

I’ve loaded this baby up with patterned papers, vintage images, tinsel trim, epoxy embellishments, lots of shamrocks with various finishes, ribbon, flowers, clip, rosettes, die cut doily, and wooden clothespins.


So many layers here makes me happy : )



She’s such a pretty little Irish lass.  I topped her off with a lucky label created with my old school style Dymo.


Ticket tags with poofy bows are strung on the ribbon trim to accent the large banner sections.

There are a few kits available for this banner. If you want to check out the details head on over to  St Patrick’s Day Banner Kit.

Enjoy the rest of your day Peeps!

Irish Charm Wall Hanging Holiday Decor


Happy Saturday Peeps!  We’re looking forward to an almost springlike day here in Michigan and I’m so happy for a bit of a warm up. I’m dropping in to share a sweet wall hanging I created for St Patrick’s Day with an image from the new Irish Charm Tags Digital Collage Sheet.


This charming Irish lass is perfect for layering with patterned papers, and lots of embellies.


There’s a glittery shamrock here with gorgeous flowers in shades of green. I tucked in some berry picks and twine to fill in a generous arrangement.


Loopy bows tied of chevron striped twill are topped off with bows of twine and vintage buttons. There is also a length of the ribbon to display on a peg or hook.


Chipboard altered with embossing powder and heat set creates a frame for the tag. I used spacers between the layers for depth.  I’ve got a fabby new thin striped washi tape that was perfect to add to the side of the tag  along with the enamel number plate and coordinating pearly accents.


I used a large die to cut the background with a border of  Celtic knots.  There are layers of 100 lb cardstock and printed scrapbook paper on the back for a finished look and for sturdiness.

Show Me the Green?????


I had a lovely visit last night with friend Meredith. I shared with her that I would be posting a project for the show Me the Green and Ribbon Challenge at RRR. By the look on her face I don’t think she believed me.  It’s true that I do not normally find myself reaching for green when I work lol. Bonnie always challenges me to work outside the box. So here is my project ….I hope I made Meridith proud : ) She is a beautiful sassy redhead….so maybe she’s Irish?????


It looks like a card from this pic….but it’s actually a large rectangly chalkboard. Hard to get it all in the same pic. I clipped and layered the little basket wielding Bonnie Lass over several different Irishy images….including a shamrock border.   Lovin the green plaid.

IMG_1008I considered naming this post ” I don’t always use green trims….but when I do…I pull out every pattern I have and glue it on the same project!!!” Okay…that’s a bit of an exaggeration…I actually have more ….so odd considering I don’t work in greens much lol.  I layered the Green Moss Gingham over Celery Chevron and Natural Burlap. There’s also  Olive Pom Poms under the shamrocks and the bow has a hand crocheted flower, topped off with Olive Wrinkle Ribbon and Apple Bakers Twine.

IMG_1016Various shades of green flowers were layered here with some sparkly bits, white accents and more of the crocheted flowers.

So that’s it for my Show Me The Green and Ribbon Project. The other DT girls have shared their fabulous projects for the challenge too …you should hop on over and check em out….while you’re there why not enter your own Show me the Green And Ribbon project.

I hope you all enjoy a happy and productive day and find some time to be creative : ) G
