Today, I am releasing a pocket scrapbooking or journaling cards freebie for St. Patrick's Day. I used to design these a little more often years ago and as I was editing some of my former blog posts, I thought I would create this type of printable for you.
I also included a coordinating mini size envelope printable and tab and tags printable as well! I am providing these journaling printables for St. Patrick's Day and to give a little shout out to the Irish for their lace design inspiration. My mother and grandmother were avid fans of crochet designs, knitting and embroidery. Every time they were able to get together, they would discuss how to achieve or master a popular design. My mother was a lot more skilled than my grandmother (sorry Nana!) and she would often sell her creations for the ladies auxiliary group of her church. I wasn't as appreciative of the work that went into this type of craft as I am now.
I included a little bit of that inspiration in my design. Here's a little excerpt from the Heritage Council of Ireland regarding the origins of Irish lace.
“Lace was first produced in Ireland from the 1730s. It was a highly skilled and very delicate craft, and was promoted by Irish aristocrats such as Lady Arabella Denny, the famous philanthropist, who used social and political connections to support the new industry and promote the sale of Irish lace abroad. The skill soon spread beyond Dublin to the poorest parts of the country, and proved a popular means for young women to help support their families. Lace-making required little equipment beyond bobbins and fine cotton or linen thread, and a great deal of patience, so was suitable for remote parts of the country that had little industry and few employment options.”
So, there are multiple uses for these printables. Choose one or all…it's up to your crafting needs and desire. Enjoy!
