The Kraft Journal #162 Lucky Green

Hi!  

{If you are looking for my DeNami Designs Blog Hop Post click here}

It's Monday, and I am bringing you our newest challenge this week at The Kraft Journal, Lucky Green.    Using my Cameo, I cut a Pot of Gold treat holder from Black Board Stock Paper.  This is one of my first projects I worked on after I separated my shoulder. There are a few things I am not too happy with, but I had to let it go and not worry about it because it was actually tough to do some of the simplest things, like add adhesive, putting together a rosette and die-cutting....ouch etc. You just don't realize how much everything is connected.
 To jazz up the center of my treats, I die-cut a Scalloped Stitched Rosette from Green cardstock adding a scallop and stitched circle from Brown Kraft Cover Weight, and Black Board Stock Paper followed by a green die-cut shamrock that comes with the Pot of Gold file. I added a Good Luck sentiment to the center of the green shamrock embellishing with some Kraft color pearls.
 For the treats themselves, I filled a bag with gold Rolos which I tied the top in a bow from Black Twill Tape further embellishing with a triple bow of Dark Green Baker's Twine, buttons, and a Happy St. Patrick's sentiment stamped on a die-cut banner from Brown Kraft Cover Weight.
Please be sure to head over to the The Kraft Journal to check out the projects by the other talented ladies.  We hope to see your Lucky Green creations in the gallery this week for your chance to be featured on our "Feature me Friday" post as well as be entered to win a $15.00 gift voucher from The Kraft Outlet store.

I am going to share at: Just Be Creative - March Linky Party, Sunday {Fun}day - March Linky Party, Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes, Decorate To Celebrate - St. Patrick's Day, D.L. Art - March Linky Challenge.

Have a fabulous Monday!

I loved this project when I first saw it on TKJ blog. I have this same die-cut and I struggle terribly with it. I can't get those buggers to stay together (round) no matter what I do. I've tried glue, staples, you name it. I must be doing something wrong! Anyway, yours is sure cute. Thanks for sharing.

Tammy, you are the most creative person. What a wonderful, fun project.

I hope you're getting better quickly. I certainly know what you mean about things being connected. Several years ago, I broke my leg, foot, and wrist. The worst was the wrist. I have said many times when your wrist won't turn (I had an external fixator) then you can't do anything. Nothing works with the hand.
