I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Mad Hatter

It's time for another card challenge with Cardz TV stamps. I'm thrilled that the challenge is to use a shamrock or clover. If you are like me and many other crafters, you have trinkets for every occasion and holiday. I have these super shiny green coins for St. Patrick's Day that I have been eager to use. 

To create the card, I stared with the background paper from Close to My Heart (scraps), next I cut the frames from Elegant Edges in Cricut Explore, and then, I used the KaDoodle Bug cutting file, Irish Kids to cut the hat (and inked it with brown for an aged look). I added that shiny coin, and the sentiment from CardzTV, the Happy Day's set. 

Challenges Entered:
Ruby's Rainbow: Anything Green
Ooh La La Creations: Anything Green


  1. Awesome card Faith!!! Love the hat, the mats and the great papers!!! :)

  2. Love your card💚 ! That hat is so cute and I love the aged look to it!😄
