To kick off the count down to Canada Day, Charlene is sharing her fabulous Canada Day scrapbook layout for you today.


Hello Bloggers! Charlene here! Happy 2 Days Before Canada Day!

So as you can tell my scrapbook layout is all ready to showcase the celebrations of Canada's 150th birthday! All I need is a great photo to finish my page. We are having a family BBQ at the cottage to also celebrate my father in laws 80th birthday so I know I will have lots of great photo opportunities! How are you going to be spending your day??

I loved working with the Southern Ridge word pieces. I wanted the wood grain to show through so I simply stained the wood with Distress stain. I also wanted the Canada 150 to show up a bit more on the heart so I started by adding stain where I could with the applicator. Then to get closer to the word I made a small puddle of stain on my craft mat and used a paint brush to brush the stain onto the wood....worked like a charm! I repeated the process with the Walnut Stain over the word.

I used a chipboard heart from the Wild Heart package for the top corner. I added adhesive to the front of the heart and added paper on top. I rough cut around the edges and then used sand paper to remove the excess paper. And then of course added some ink!
