Hi! Jill from Every Day is an Occasion here to share a St. Patrick’s Day Craft with you. Seriously, how much fun is St. Patrick’s Day? We love it here in Notre Dame country! Today I have a cute little kids treat and then I decided to make a grown up version of it too! There are 2 free printables for you, so just click on the links and download!
To create these rainbow seeds, I used a pail from Darice and filled it with Skittles. Then I used this cut from the Silhouette store to cut out a shamrock on Spotted Core. If you do not have a Silhouette fear not, here is a template for you to cut some out. Then I sanded the core with my Sand-It tool. I just love how it makes the spots pop just by sanding it!
Then I used some fun fur to tie around the handle and this free printable on my blog. To print the free printable, I used Core’dinations 8 1/2×11 white 110 lb cardstock. My printer loves it!! To create the flourish cut around the leprechaun tag, I used this Flourish Slim punch from Hobby Lobby. That’s it pretty easy peasy.
St. Patrick’s Day Treat
Here is another St. Patrick’s Day treat idea that is for a different age range.
This was created the same way as I mentioned above, but I used Sixlets from Darice and a printable I created, which you can download here… Happy St. Patrick’s Day
Thanks a bunch for stopping by and checking out my projects!
I hope that you are able to use the free printable with some 110 lb white core!
And we have a layout from Jennifer Edwardson! See we are LUCKY!!! Here is a little bit about this layout from Jennifer….
I found this lucky clover placemat cut file at the Silhouette online store and thought it would super fun on a 12 x 12″ layout.
I started with one of my fave bases – Spotted Jillian Dot in white and then adhered this clover ‘placemat’ that I cut using spring green from the Graphic 45 Lights collection …..
I cut up a 4 x 6″ Bell Blvd. journalling card and added my photos to create a line across the middle of the layout ….
I added my journalling and some faux stitching around the edge of the placemat as well as onto the chip alphas for my title.
This is a simple layout but I love how it all came together with this great Core’dinations cardstock !!

Nothing sets the stage for a holiday like a banner! Core’dinations has the PERFECT color for you for all your St Patrick’s Day needs…it’s Shamrock Green!
Mary Pat Siehl created this banner just for us today…ENJOY!
I know I sound like a broken record but I LOVE my Core for home decor items. I love to give my family room a little facelift with each holiday that comes around. As soon as March 1st comes my family room has accents of green for St. Patrick’s day! My mantel needed a little lift and I made a little fun banner! I used my Silhouette to cut out my banner but you could easily hand cut any shape or use a template. I started with my Core Essentials and and made a base in yellow. I then cut my top layer and embossed it using a Darice Shamrock embossing folder. I lightly sanded it to expose the inner core and the shamrocks. I layered it onto of my yellow with some foam tape. ( I love to add dimension to my projects). Next I grabbed my Core Couture Glitter cardstock in Five Star and punched some circles. Again foam taping them on to the base. Next I cut out the work Lucky using the Rodeo Drive from the Glitter collection and adhered it on to the circle. So much fun for our family room.
Here is a close up of a banner piece. You can see all the glitter and the fun embossing.
As I mentioned before I love dimension and here is a close up of the layers of all the pieces. This really makes it Pop!

I know every day I feel lucky to have Core’dinations as a part of my life and when I saw this layout from Kate Nolan-Denham, I couldnt wait to share!
When we are lucky enough to have a good friend that will stand by us through thick and thin, we should celebrate it! What better time of year to celebrate how lucky we are than St. Patrick’s Day?
My layout today is inspired by the lucky theme of St. Patrick’s Day and the colors we associate with this day, too. It is chock-full of glittery greens, golds and blacks found in Core’dinations Gemstone, Glitter Silk, and Core Couture Glitter Collections. I bet you didn’t even realize there were so many fantastic glittery collections by Core’dinations!
I embossed the black Glitter Silk Cardstock and then lightly sanded it just so the embossing would pop. The die cut doilies are also lightly sanded to show off the core.
The titlework was also cut out of the Glitter Silk Collection. When using your Silhouette to cut the Glitter Silk, I recommend reversing your image and cutting it Glitter Silk side down.

We have some fun and festive Valentine’s Day home decor projects for you from Designer Mary Pat Siehl to share with you today that you are going to LOVE! Pun intended
I love Valentine’s Day and I love to decorate my house to fit this holiday. Core is really perfect for making all your home decor needs. For my first project I made a message board. In my kitchen I have an 8×10 photo frame and the glass functions as a dry erase board. I love to leave messages to my kids and also make to do lists. For my Valentine’s Day message board I started off with a base of the Core Gemstones in Opal. I then cut out 3 hears in ruby red and pink diamond. I then ran them through my Cuttlebug embossing folders just to give them an embossed look. I then cut out the xo in onyx cardstock.
Silhouette – basic heart, pacifico font
My next project is perfect for my mantel. I found this frame on sale and thought it would be so fun to make my own journaling cards style photo frame. I really got to have fun with my core for this project and really got to sand the cardstock. I love the blackboard effect and made on box using the Core essentials Nightfall and sanded it to give the blackboard look. One of my favorite things about Core’dinations is that no matter what collection you use they all work together so well. For this project I used papers from the Essentials, Tim Holtz Adirondack collection, and Glitter Silk!
Silhouette- Arial font, basic arrow, basic heartt
Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope you have fun making your own home decor items! Have a wonderful and crafty day!
