St. Patrick’s Day Crafts 2017 – Layout & Card Ideas

Elmo St. Patrick's Day Card Ideaby Richelle Naegle

Today is your lucky day; in this post, you get not one, but three St. Patrick’s Day projects! Sorry, I know St. Patty’s is just a couple days away, but I’m just barely getting to around to making these. But better late than never, I always say. So today, we are going to start out with this fun card I made using the Sesame Street Celebrations Cricut cartridge. It features all your favorite Sesame Street characters in designs that are great solutions for a variety of holidays. The card I chose features Elmo, my favorite Sesame Street character. This card ended up being 6″ x 6″ and Elmo was cut out at 6″ with my Cricut Explore Air 2.

The second card I made is one of Aaron’s designs that we offered with our March 2017 downloads as part of our huge library of free .SVG Downloads. When I saw this card, I was immediately in love with it. I used my Silhouette CAMEO 3 to cut this card out at 4″ x 6″. It was just 3 easy cuts and I love the results!

The last St. Patrick’s Day craft I made today is a super easy scrapbook layout. Some layouts take hours, but to be honest, I’ll reserve that kind of detail for bigger holidays. This layout Lucky St. Patrick's Day Layout Ideaonly took about 45 minutes and I love the way it turned out. I made it using mostly the Family Albums Cricut cartridge, except I added my own twist. I used the Anna’s Seasonal Soirees cartridge for the background image. I cut this element out at 11.50″ x 8.22″. The large clover was cut out at 3.75″ and Lucky at 1.25″. Last, but not least, I added two 4.25″ x 6″ photo slots.

I would love to see your St. Patrick’s Day Scrapbook pages and cards you have created, so please share them with me on Facebook! I can’t wait to see what you have created! Before you leave, update your machine by buying a new Cricut blade and/or new Explore mat.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and as always, happy creating!
