Awww, St. Patrick’s Day. Another excuse to talk about Ireland! I hope you’re ready for a big post! I have mentioned before that we’ve visited Ireland a couple of times and loved it so much we keep dreaming about back. We love the beauty of the country as well as the laid back atmosphere. You can tell how obsessed we are with this place by the collection we are getting of Irish related books, cookbooks, and prints. This photo at left shows only some of what we have!
Shown in this post are a few photos from our visits and some scrapbook pages, cards, and embellishments to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and the love of everything Irish!
I bet you’re asking yourself right now, "Did she scrapbook any of these photos?" Yes, actually! Not all of them, but I made several mini albums out of them and layouts as well. One day, I hope to catch up, LOL! Here are a couple of photos of my projects using the Ireland photos:
Cosmo Cricket posted a series of St. Patrick’s Day scrapbooking projects from a reader contest they recently held called, "Seeing Green." See all the great projects here.
The June Bride sells these pretty shamrock brooches made from reclaimed wool sweaters. See photo at right. As well, these embellishments at left were made by Michelle Lanning and are available in her shop.
A vintage St. Patrick’s Day collage sheet can be obtained here.
Blueberry Freckles has printable St. Patrick’s Day journaling tags available here.
Mini shamrock notepads made as matchbooks can be obtained here from DHESSdesignz.
La Cherishe has a pretty "Irish Blessings" tag here.
Take a look at these Irish beauties from Hudson Holidays.
Love this digital layout by Just Another Jen.
