Hello and welcome to yet another edition of the monthly "Scrappin' Our Stash" blog hop! You should have made you way here on the hop via Monica's blog. If you didn't be sure to start at Katrina's blog and work you way here. As usual, there are some incredible projects to see along the way. You don't need to have the latest and greatest and you might find some fresh inspiration and life in those older collections that have gathered in your stash, overshadowed by the new arrivals.
Today I am sharing with you a primarily Doodlebug layout. I love St Paddy's day and while the size of my St Paddy's collection will never near that of my Christmas stash, it's still rather sizable. I was thrilled to have an opportunity to use some of my goodies amassed last year, possibly even the year before. Honestly, I don't even remember when this rainbow colored goodness joined my stash.
There is nothing like a solid, crisp black or white cardstock to make the colors of layouts pop. By using a digital cut file, you can spruce anything up and bring new life to it. This fantastic cut file is from Just Nick. The fun Pinwheel Background adds such movement to the page.
I didn't buy any embellishments, if there even were any, to go with this collection. Instead I was able to use basics from Doodlebug and cut apart bits of journal cards to create fun add ons.
That's it from me today. Do you have St Paddy's Day plans? Nothing big planned here. I miss being in Chicago for the parade and dying of the river green. I will never forget how yellow the stroller was from the dye flying up into the wind and dying us all a lovely electric yellow!
From here you are heading on to the ever talented Christine's blog. I know she has some great inspiration for you! Thanks for stopping in, I hope you enjoyed your visit.
