Canada Day Blog Hop

Welcome to the CANADA DAY Blog Hop hosted by Tara & Jacqueline!  If you are here from Kimberly's blog then you are in the right spot. If you would like to start at the beginning please click here In honor of Canada Day we are all making a project with a Canadian theme!


I decided to make a mini Canada Day album, and I am so happy with how it turned out!! The maple leafs are all cut from Create a Critter - my favorite cartridge, and so is the Beaver - isn't he cute?? All the words are cut with Robotz - my go to chunky font. The tags are all from Sweet Treats. Almost all the paper is from my scrap boxes. I am trying to use up what I have :) Most of the card stock is from Stampin Up or Close to My Heart. I have no idea who made the patterned paper, sorry - one of the problems with delving into my scrapbox. I used ribbon from Michaels, and my white and black gel pens to do the doodling. Supe cute eh??

I love it! There is so many great details and I love the fact you used from your scrap box :)
P.S. I don't think Provo Craft will ever make a cartridge that knocks Create-a-critter out of my favourite spot lol

Wonderful album. Especially like the Beaver. I have the Create a Critter cartridge and did not know there was a beaver on it. Have made the Bumblebee from the Create a Critter cartridge. Will get to working on a project to link up after I finish hop.
