Visiting the Terry Fox exhibit

My layout today is in preparation for Canada Day scrapbooking. It's a warm-up per say...

Last July, our family visited the Terry Fox travelling museum exhibit in Victoria, British Columbia. The exhibit was moving and inspirational. Our tour guide at the museum was the cousin of Terry Fox, which made the displays so very personal. I knew I needed to include this day in our family scrapbooks!

Learn from my mistakes. When you cut this fabulous map of Canada, (from the Go Canada Cricut cartridge) use the negative image! There are alot of tiny islands in the North. I learnt this the hard way.
This SVG of Terry Fox is available for FREE to promote Terry and his "message of courage and hope" on his website.
The maple leaf paper and stickers are from a paper pack by Photo Play Paper called Oh Canada. Love it!!!

Mother’s Day 2018

Here is my Mother’s Day card for this year! I made three almost identical cards for the moms. I love making this style of card. It is quite simple to fold up and the z fold adds some nice dimension. This style card is perfect to mail as it folds flat and mine are the standard A2 size. No special envelope needed.

I am entering this card at Paper Garden. They are sponsoring a Mother’s Day card making contest. All of the solid colour paper on my card is from Paper Garden. These photos do not do justice for how beautiful the paper is. The contest is open until May the 10th so you have plenty of time to submit your own design. Here are all the entries for you to get some card making inspiration.

If you are not entering a design why not vote for your favourite?

Happy Mother's Day to all!

The Day the Ice Melted

The strangest thing happened during hockey playoffs this year. Something like this has never happened in twelve years of me "hockey-momming". The zamboni came out in between periods and melted the ice away...

You know you are a scrapbooker when you are thinking *I will need to document this* even as it is happening.

The end result was that the game needed to be replayed another day at another arena.

Mother's Day Cards over the years

Apparently, my theme for Mother's Day cards is flowers - so many flowers!

I didn't realize that I always used flowers and often the colour yellow until just now!

Winnipeg Jets Playoff Banner

The Winnipeg Jets fans are known for their Whiteout during the playoffs. Therefore, I knew this wasn’t going to the a colourful banner. (Yes, that’s a goal horn on my mantle.) This project was super quick to create!

It has been years since I made a project using print and cut with my Cricut Explore. I even had to calibrate my machine! I am very impressed with the updates to this feature. The registration marks are different and the cut was so precise. I definitely need to use this awesome feature more often. It worked so well to print the whiteout logo rather than try and cut out all the tiny parts.


Are you making any sporty-projects??? Playoff projects?

Winnipeg Jets - Playoff Projects

Our family loves hockey! Our son plays community hockey and my husband coaches. We are also fans of our city's NHL team, the Winnipeg Jets. They have clinched a spot on the 2018 playoffs. Therefore, I have game-watching parties to prepare for. Here are some previously posted ideas.

This banner was for my son's tenth birthday party.

Invitations to the birthday party.


This layout was from the last time we were in the playoffs. I added a QR code to remember our playoff anthem from Youtube.

Here is my QR code blog post.

I made cupcake toppers in the whiteout colors.

Now what should I make this year?
