Lucky Blarney Block

Top O' The Morning To Ya!   

I bet most of us have heard of the blarney stone, well today I have for you a lucky blarney block.....okay, so, I took some latitude.  I'm Irish so I think it is okay.  I will show you how I took one of the board blocks from Altered Pages and turned it into a fun fresh little Irish gifty.  I will show you how...
first though...

March is going to be lots of fun here at Altered Pages.  We are showcasing Mailbox Muse kits and German Scrap.  Have you sighed up for your Mailbox Muse subscription?  
Have you ever used German Scrap?  
If not, you must get right on that! And, I mean now! 
Here is the link to the Mailbox Muse kits.  
The jam packed kits are full of goodies, the ideas and inspiration, the detailed booklet with instructions to create your own masterpiece. They arrive at your door four times a year! 
What more could you ask for?  

Okay, now for the lucky Blarney block. So fun, so easy. All the hard work is done for you by using the great selection of St. Patty's Day collage sheets from Altered Pages. 




Some fussy cutting and glamorous German Scrap
and look at how that came together.  
The collage images were adhered with gel medium. 
The German Scrap done in the same way.  I really only needed this one adhesive tool to be honest.  I brushed the gel medium on the back of the collage images and scrap and wallah!  All sides covered. Each day during March turn the blarney block over and you get a whole new look.  
I hope you enjoyed! 

Have a great weekend! 

Thank you so much to our partner this month!
