St. Patrick's Day Crafts

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner.  The holiday falls on a Saturday this year, which is convenient for all the party-goers in Savannah, just 35 minutes from us.  A whole Sunday to recover!   Did you know Savannah, GA has the second largest St. Patty’s Day parade and post-party in the country?  It’s attended by more people than any other parade second to Chicago.    My husband and buddies are headed down there this year for the festivities while Molly and I hang out with my grandfather visiting for the weekend to celebrate his 86th birthday!

Blogs are a buzz with St. Patrick’s Day crafts.  Though I don’t typically think to craft on this holiday, here are some ideas that I’ve picked up to share with you.  Click on the caption, it will lead you directly to the source of the image and talented creator (not me or our design team).

We can also celebrate the holiday with card making.   Here are some ideas by designers Vera Yates and Mara Campbell.   In this card, Vera stamped Happy St. Patrick’s Day using her PSA Vanilla Peel & Stick stamps.   She used her acrylic blocks to spell everything out – she did a great job of lining everything up!  (Not always easy to do.)

Mara Campbell created these adorable cards last year, all the characters come from UBU Happy Hour Peel & Stick.  They look like they’re having a real party – and it sets the mood for a festive card!
You’ve got to check this set out, in case you haven’t seen it before:

She also created this card using the sentiment “Dare to Dream” and the outer ring from PSA Dare to Dream Peel & Stick.   I love the hearts arranged in a shamrock and the twine from The Twinery tied in a bow.

Happy St. Patty’s Day crafting!
