Celebrate Canada with Digital Layouts

Celebrate Canada Paper Pack doesn’t have to just be used for Canada Day and the papers don’t just have to be used in Canada!  This versatile paper pack can be used for so many different layouts and occasions.  There are so many great designs included.  I wanted to share a few of the pages that I have done, but I have so many more pages I can envision using these gorgeous papers with my photos!

Getaway Memories Scrapbooking Layout

We all love to getaway.  Whether it is for a day, a weekend, or a week-long vacation- it refreshes the body and soul.

Last summer, my husband and I took a week off of work to move both of our boys into their new homes.  One to his sophomore year of college in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and the other to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for his first year of law school.  It was an adventure to say the least.  We travelled over 3000 miles and saw parts of the country that we had never seen before.  We loved capturing photos of the road signs and countryside along the way.

Woodland Whimsy Digital Pages

Woodland Whimsy for boys and girls is sweet for babies and is on trend, but it doesn’t need to be used for just babies!  My babies are not babies anymore, but I loved using this sweet kit for photos of them!

The soft colours in Woodland Whimsy Baby Girl Collection is perfect for photos of Lauren and I.  I love the triangles in the kit so I resized them, filled them with different papers and created a layout with triangles.  I even tucked a couple of triangles behind my photos.

Challenge 4- Creative Memories March Virtual Crop

We know that you all love a great sketch.

Sketches have so much life in them.  Use different collections each time, and you are sure to have endless possibilities.  You can also rotate the sketch right or left, and get a whole new take on it.

Sketches are created as a “jumping off” point for you.  They can be interpreted exactly or very loosely.  There are not measurements, so you can make it yours.
