Today I'm using the new paper collection "Canadian Winter". This paper is all about our Canadian winters and I just love it! Who, living here in Canada, doesn't have happy memories of hockey, skiing, frosty mornings and hot chocolate? There's all that and more in the Canadian Winter collection!
Let's talk about hockey... Canada's game... at 3 years old my grandson couldn't wait to get playing. He'd been dragging around a plastic stick from the time he could walk so he was more than ready! He's following in the footsteps of his Great-Grandfather, his Grandpa, and his dad.
The recipe for this layout is pretty simple:
1 Canadian Winter paper collection 1 Canadian Winter pkg of ephemera 1 Canadian Winter card pack 1 Canadian Winter pkg of Flair buttons Barn Door Distress Ink for inking edges Glue and a journalling pen
I like to use the card pack as mats for behind my photo and as a background on my layout.
This is the mat I used behind the photo.
Add a little Barn Door ink around the edges and the photo's good to go.
The next thing I do is layout the rest of the background mats and then glue them down.
I always take a photo of how I want to lay out the embellishments... because I find I forget once I start moving things around to glue them down!
I used this month's sketch at Creative Scrapbooker Magazine to arrange the embellishments.
Another happy memory is ready to go into the photo album.
Thanks for stopping by today!
