I created this little layout.

Lucky by Daniela Dobson

For this project, I used Samantha's Silhouette cuts:

“lucky” word
”lucky” card
lucky tickets print and cut
Traditions paper collection

I started by opening the “lucky” card and copying just the shamrock into a new window.

step 2

Next, open replicate window and click on row of four. Rotate second and third shamrock 45 degrees. Select all four shamrock and go to align window and click on space horizontally and space vertically. Go to replicate window and click on fill page.This is what you get.
The reason I alternated the shamrocks is so that I can use this as a mask/stencil for another project.

Step 3

I saved the cut shamrocks and laid them on white cardstock, randomly. I used green mist to spray the paper.

Step 4 Daniela Dobson

Step 5 Daniela Dobson

For the photo frame, I measured the photo and that was my opening. I added a border for the frame. I resized the “lucky” word to fit the bottom of the frame and click on Make compound path. I added lots of little embellishments on this page.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
