Happy Canada Day!

I know that Canada Day isn’t for a few days but we wanted  to share a project with you to create just in time for that special day!
Design Team Member Char Dobson created this gorgeous project for you today with her daughter for our series Kids Krafts & Core.
Project: Canada Day Mini-Album
Techniques: sanding, paper tearing,  stamping
Other supplies: Paper lunch bags, Crop-a-Dile, Jute, Cricut Go Canada cartridge, Quickutz Canadian Collection die set, Sakura black journaling pen, Ranger Distress Ink in black, Pink by Design Canada stamp set, Images printed from the internet
Notes: We really wanted to do a project showcasing what we love about Canada; and thins that make us proud to be Canadian. My daughter chose the theme and design for each page on her own. So not only are you experiencing her artwork through this mini-album, but her own true feelings about being a Canadian as well. I mostly just ran the Cricut and helped to glue down some of those fussy phrases!
Don’t be afraid to use found objects in your house. Char actually used a wooden maple leaf that had in her house. They traced it using a stylus!
Making a mini album about your country is a great way for children to learn first hand about their country.
Trust us!!!
Kids LOVE sanding with their Sand It Gadgets!!! The Spotted collection is a perfect line because kids can see the dots right away. Don’t forget about our spotted in 6×6 …perfect for mini albums!
Paper tearing is a super simple way for kids to really explore texture AND it’s FUN!
Have your kids journal directly on the Core Cardstock like Char’s daughter did here!
And a cute stamped image on the back!

Just a reminder …Don’t forget about our Core Colour Challenge!

Only nine days left to get those entries in and a Core pack of cardstock is up for grabs!!! More details here.

Today we have some fun layouts from Design Team Member Melissa Oliveira.

Melissa works the 8.5×11″! check out the tone on tone embossed hears!!!! LOVE!!!

Here is a little bit about this layout from Melissa, “the embossed hearts were cut from the left over strip from trimming the background to a 8 1/2 x 11 size. I just embossed, sanded, and popped them up with foam tape for a little added dimension. I sanded then inked the Jenni Bowlin butterfly Core Impressions that is behind the title work. I really like the way the sanded areas take to the ranger distress inks.”

And speaking of love…..

How sweet is this?  That chevron Pink Paislee Core Impressions is too perfect! SO many great details, don’t you think? Melissa used her BasicGrey embossing folders for the hearts.

The sun is out, then it rains for two days, then more sun, neighbors are mowing lawns, waking up to birds chirping, little girls with crocheted hats and kids with strawberries…that is what Spring is all about. And, lucky for you, we are celebrating Spring on our blog right now 😉

Look at this cutie in Melissa’s layout:

Check out this Detail!

And nothing reminds me of Spring more than Strawberries. Check out this fun layout from Paula celebrating Spring.
