Adding a QR code to your scrapbooking - Winnipeg Jets layout

I have wanted to learn how to add a QR code to a layout for awhile now. Thank you to everyone that has posted a tutorial on this. I created this page almost a year ago to remember our family's excitement to have our hockey team in the playoffs. Our entire city was cheering them on! Each day, the kids and I listened to the Jets Playoff Anthem that a local radio station wrote and produced. We loved this song and would blast it in the car to drive to school passing by Winnipeg Jet signs and flags. I still smile when I think of it. I felt that I wanted to include the YouTube video for this song as part of my scrapbook page. Yes, I pulled out a page from a year ago and added to it today. The website I used to create the code is GoQR. I copied the YouTube URL and within seconds my QR code was there. The scrapbooking possibilities are endless. I could add anything to my pages.

*Note my cute cupcake toppers and yes I do have a goal horn in my family room**

My hope is that many years from now, my family or a friend will see this layout and understand how thrilled my kids were to experience this playoff frenzy for the first time and the video link will add to the story.

*Cross your fingers the Winnipeg Jets will make the playoffs again... next year.*

Papercrafting supply donation for Cross Lake, Manitoba

A local radio station in Winnipeg, Virgin 103.1 FM, is asking for donations of arts and crafts supplies to be flown up north to a community called Cross Lake. Cross Lake Cree Nation (Pimicikamak) officials have declared a state of emergency due to a great number of suicides and attempted suicides in their community since December.

"six suicides since December and 140 attempts in the last two weeks alone"

As soon as I heard this, I knew I could tidy up my scraproom a bit and destash some supplies! I am a firm believer in the therapeutic healing that crafting can provide. This area may not have a local scrapbook store but I certainly could provide some paper, adhesive, stickers and diecuts.

(Anyone else cut multiples of a Cricut cut and then just stuff them in a drawer? Am I the only one who cuts out something because it is pretty and then stuff it in a drawer?)

I am happy to say that drawer has been emptied and will soon be flown up North to a town in crisis. If my items give even one person the joy they have provided me, I will be so happy.

Here is a link with more info on their supply drive - Virgin 103.1.
