I Am Lucky
Today is my turn to Design at SweetSassyDiva's.
If you are looking for my Spring Clean Craft Room post, go HERE.
Our theme is Luck of the Irish. One of my students found a project on Pinterest and asked me to help her create it with the Gypsy. I used her idea as a springboard for my own.
I started with this shamrock from Designer's Calendar sized at 11 inches and cut it out of green cardstock.
Next, I found Lucky from Sophisticated and sized it to 2.08 inches. I cut out the shadow layer in gold cardstock and the top layer in green cardstock. I cut out two sets.
There is a 1" square in the center of the shamrock that needs to be covered up, so I cut a heart from George sized to 1.82 inches. I cut it out of gold cardstock. I also cut out the words "I am" from Base Camp sized to .73 inches. I cut them out of black cardstock.
I used the negative piece to cover up my photo collage.
These photos represent why I feel lucky this year ~ my family and the vacations we took this past year.
I took the inner cut and the extra "Lucky" to create a second layout.
Here is the gold heart I cut to cover the square of the photo collage. I taped it to the negative piece of black cardstock in order to line up the words "I am".
I adhered the letters down and peeled the black cardstock away.
My letters are straight and evenly spaced!
I used foam squares to pop dot the word "Lucky" to my layout.
I needed a page to go along with Tanner's St. Pat's Day layout from last year, so I used shamrock and the extra word "Lucky".
Here is my 2012 layout for how Lucky I feel! Thanks for having me over today!!
