Happy St. Patricks Day, Lucky Charm!

Hi Bloggers! Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! Whether you celebrate this holiday, or just like the color GREEN, we're happy you've tuned into our blog today!! I'm happy to have some more fabulous new inspirations from May Flaum and the new collection, Lucky Charm.  What better day than today to share this fabulous and appropriately named collection with you? Without further ado, I will let May take it away!

I've been crafting up a storm and I have to tell you - I am totally charmed by the newest Dear Lizzy line Lucky Charm! May Flaum here to share a trio of new projects I've made with this fantastic new paper line. With a trendy color palette mixing navy blues with soft hues in pinks, greens, yellows and more; this line is so versatile and the products are awesome not just for scrapbooking - but amazing for cards and other paper crafts as well!

There are great die cuts and sentiment stickers perfect for layering and making your own homemade cards, tags, mini books, and more. I love the horseshoe accents, and the combination of soft greens with navy blue.
Speaking of lovely, I am having such a fun time scrapbooking with this line. The colors are so complimentary with my photos and I can't stop reaching for my paper pad and the chipboard shapes!
This layout came together quickly and all I added besides the Lucky Charm elements was a bit of picket fence stickles, hearts, and a bit of twine.  
The butterfly punch you see above is one of my favorites from Jenni Bowlin - and it truly is the perfect accessory from my stash to mix with this new line. With spring in the air and Lucky Charm in my crafty hands - it's had to stop creating. Here's another card that I made, this time with some leftover paper from a sheet I'd partially used.
I used the same twine as my layout, and just inked all around the edges to add a bit more contrast and have not quite so much white showing on my background. super quick, simple, and oh do I love that sentiment.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing these three projects! You can find even more over on my blog where I've been showcasing new products all week long. I wish you very happy (lucky) crafting!
