Red Carpet Studio: Lucky Leprechaun Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 2 of the Lucky Leprechaun Blog Hop, brought to you by the card design team of Red Carpet Studio!

If you've come from  Kim's blog you're in the right place. If you've just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Red Carpet Studio.

This hop was put together to share with you fun and creative ideas for St. Patrick's Day projects along with introduce you to our new design team members AND officially announce our March Lucky Link-Up contest!

Before we get to all that fun information, I'd like to share my project with you. I created...

Have I ever mentioned how much I now enjoy making cards!  I honestly used all scraps for this card.  I had a random piece of left over green cardstock.  I used my cricut to cut the clovers from the Designer's Calendar cartridge.  When I pulled the clovers off the paper, I just used the same paper, cut to size, for my card.  I then embossed the clovers using a Tim Holtz folder in my Cuttlebug, & embossed a white scrap piece of cardstock to match. I pop dotted the clovers to give them some dimension, added buttons, ribbon, & letters for the word "lucky".  Voila!  A card completely made from my scraps.  Now only if I had the time to make more cards, as my scrap pile has turned into a box!! 

I haven't given a RAK in a long time, so, I think it might be about time for me to do so.  If you leave me a comment, & become a follower of my blog, you will be entered into a random draw for a RAK (yet to be determined).  Stop back next week to see if you are a winner!

And of course we have some wonderful sponsors giving away prizes to those who comment both days on every stop of the hop. :)

3 digis of winner's choice

6 digital image sets

5 digital stamps

$10 gift certificate

Winners will be announced at Red Carpet Studio on Tuesday March 5th along with the winners of our wedding/anniversary card challenge.

And now for our March Lucky Link-Up announcement! Each challenge entry in March will enter you to win over $200 in gift certificates to all sorts of online scrapbooking stores, from stamp companies, to paper piecing, to digital scrapbooking sites, and more. Check out the Lucky Link-Up page on the blog for a complete list of sponsors and details about the contest. We're also listing ALL of our March challenges in advance so you can get a head start on all your projects. :)
