St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop



Happy St. Patrick's Day and welcome to the
St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop with the Joy's Life DT! I'm so glad you are here and I hope you wore green so no one pinches you today ;)

You should have arrived here from the very talented Sarabeth,
If you just happened to stumble across the hop today on my blog and would like to start at the beginning, just hop on over and see Joy at Joy's Life.

 For my project, I used the Happy St. Patrick's Day stamp from Joy's Holiday Occasions stamp set.

Close Up of the Sentiment:


I decided to make a pot of gold for my project and I thought a altered paint bucket would be perfect! I made a  little border out of the green plaid paper and used a border punch on it and then attached it to my bucket.  I then cut my cute little leprechaun out of the Simply Charmed cricut cartridge at 3" and popped him up on the front of the bucket with some foam adhesive. For the top of my bucket, I used some spellbinders and then cut my clover out of the Designer's calendar cricut cartridge at 1.25" and popped it up with foam adhesive. I added some pearls around the border of my scallops. I tied a bow to the front of the bucket and added my little tag using the Holiday Occasions stamp set and added some more ribbons to the handle. Then I filled my bucket with some "gold" (Rolo's candies). I think it came out so cute and my hubby is going to enjoy eating all of those rolo's ;)

What's a blog hop without a little candy? I'm going to pick one lucky person to receive
the Holiday Occasions Stamp set from Joy's Life stamps :

  24. I have been trying to figure out what to do with the clear buckets. I figured out that I could do a wonder bucket for my son. Write down all the little questions he asks and then we research them. Also great for school projects when they get stuck on an idea. Follower also!
