I hope everyone here in Canada had a wonderful Canada Day today!! It was very hot here today - felt like 37 C, so we decided against taking the girls out to any festivities today and instead stayed home. Amie helped me make a Happy Canada Day banner, which I thought would work for a scrapbook page after displaying it today! I cut out the banner pieces and letters with the Cricut and put them on a piece of kraft cardstock and used some baker's twine and some flag and maple leaf stickers.
I am way behind in scrapping, but I do have all my pics organized, so I pulled out Canada Day pictures from 2011 and used the Scrapbooker's Paradise Sketch Challenge. I used a piece of kraft cardstock again for the background and some sparkly red cardstock to mat my pictures. I stamped a Tim Holtz blueprint leaf stamp onto Specialty Stamping paper with Archival Ink and sprayed with both red Dylusion sprays. After I cut out around the leaves I used brown and black Distress Inks to highlight the edges and then put them on the page, using foam tape to lift some up above the others. I cut the numbers out with the Cricut again and used some Peel Offs white scroll stickers around the page.
It was a fun way to spend Canada Day and it was nice to get a little scrapbooking done!
