Creating a St. Paddy’s Day Top Hat

For the Heart2Heart Vintage Vibes Challenge

This week, at the Heart2Heart challenge blog, we are playing with some old world, vintage products, like our Yesterday & Today papers, to create some fun paper craft designs. Before I show you my St. Paddy’s Day Top Hat Treat, I want to remind you how to join the challenge. All you need to is stop by the Heart2Heart blog and link your creation before March 31st.

Saint Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, so I try my best to make as many crafty creations as possible before the day comes.  This week, I decided that I wanted to use some of our Yesterday & Today papers to create an adorable top hat to fill with treats and place on my table. What do you think?  

This top hat was created using a few images in Cricut® Design Space that were cut from some Yesterday & Today papers, Kraft paper, and Green cardstock. I even added some sweet little stamped images and Julep gems for sparkle. 

After assembling the top hat, I filled it up with some candy nuggets, covered in some of my  leftover green paper scraps, and added a few little dancing green clovers.

How many of you would love to have this Cricut Design Space Design and learn how to assemble the project?  🙋🏻‍♀️ With all the goings on in the world this week and so many of you stuck at home, I have decided to add a little fun in your day and post a few video tutorials in my VIP Group – one of them being this whimsical Saint Paddy’s Day Treat.  (This group is designed for my VIPs, customers, and team members. You must agree to all the rules in order to join.) 

I hope that this project has inspired you to create something with a little Vintage Vibe and share it with us at the Heart2Heart Challenge Blog.  Make sure to share your project before March 31st so that we are able to see your wonderful creation.

Come & Create at My February Workshops

This past week, I have fought a nasty virus that knocked me down cold. I had hoped to have a few creations for you, but ended up in bed most of the week so, instead, I have decided to show you I have planned for my upcoming Local & Online classes. 

Let Me First Tell You How My Classes Work

  • If you are attending a local class, you will need to register online and pre-pay for the class.  Once I have received your registration & payment, you will receive a confirmation email reserving your spot and kit. 
  • If you are attending an online class, you will register online and pre-pay if necessary (some classes are free with purchases from my website). In your confirmation email you will receive a link to a PRIVATE Facebook group full of content for you to learn from including cutting guides, videos, and a live video. This content is available to you for 45 days so that you can refer to it as often as needed. 

I like to make sure that each class teaches you new techniques and ways to use your supplies. It is important that you “leave” each class with a completed project and are inspired to try something new. 

Here is what you have to look forward to in the coming weeks

A New Year Full of Inspiration

With a new year, comes change. I know that many of you are currently surrounded by a mountain of paper, gifts, and leftovers, and cannot even begin to think about the new year, but, for me, it’s be a month of prayer, planning, and wrestling with the brain monsters as I have struggled over what would be best for you and me in the upcoming months.

I have made the decision to go back to doing what I love, which means that there will be some changes made to my list of classes. My goal for the new year is to be true to myself, inspire, and teach, and with those goals in mind, I am excited to share with you what I have planned in the coming months.

 

Coming Spring 2020

I have made the decision to discontinue my Kit of the Month, Workshop Guides, & Local Scrapbook Classes. Thank you to all of you who have supported me this past year and have purchased my kits, guides, and have signed up for workshops.  I have NOT forgotten you and I KNOW Memory Keeping and photo journaling is important to all of us, so I have decided to OFFER YOU SOMETHING EVEN BETTER!!

I can’t wait to see what you create!
