Happy Canada Day 2018!

Welcome to my blog! I love spending Canada Day with my family! I'm THAT Mom that insists on matching shirts, photo ops and then scrapbooking them. Here is one such layout using the We Love Canada cuts on Design Space and the Oh Canada paper.

This layout actually started a few weeks ago, my daughter needed a large maple leaf cut out of paper for a school project. I kept the paper scraps or the negative image thinking maybe I could use it. (Anyone else do this? In my defence, it was nice cardstock...)

Have a wonderful day in Canada or elsewhere in the world!

Canada Day scrapbooking supplies 2018, eh

I am so excited to report this year that there are some new fabulous scrapbooking supplies to commemorate Canada Day! First up, I was playing on Design Space today and look what I found! A new cartridge called We Love Canada! There are only ten images but they are all great. It is included with my Access membership but I am assuming it's free for all next week.

Grab your Cricut and get cutting! Wouldn't these images be great on t-shirts for your family?

There are also 25 free Canada Day cuts on the LOVESVG website.

The next products are from Photo Play Paper Co designed by the talented Becky Fleck. There is a paper pack.

There are stickers, diecuts, stamps and matching dies.

So many great scrappy options this year! Be sure to celebrate our great nation, get out your phones, take some pictures on Canada Day and scrap 'em.

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!
