Free Sheet Music, Patriotic Stuff, Sports Car and News!

Hi Everyone,

It is so HOT here in Surrey (we are right beside Vancouver, BC) it's like an giant heat wave and it's supposed to continue! This is my patriotic post as Canada Day is July 1st and Independance Day follows on the 4th with lots of celebrations! If any of you own our Seasonal Booklet and are making cards or decorations I have some inspiring samples below to share that designers Lisa Zappa and Vicki Chrisman created!


I also wanted to do a free gift for everyone to play with and I thought some old sheet music from my collection would be fun. Just click on the image to make it large and then right click your mouse on the image and save in your picture files. You can then open your picture file and print it in any size on paper or cardstock and use it to embellish cards, banner flags, table place cards, scrapbook pages and more!

I’ve included America the Beautiful but Canada is so young I couldn’t find any copyright free sheet music, so I’ve added some pretty sheet music that everyone can use (we have TONS of global readers) to create and play with! Hey – email me any cool projects you create or add them to our online Gallery, so others can see them!

Here are 2 great cards I love that Lisa Zappa from our design team made last year.
She used 2 images from our Heartwarming Vintage Seasonal Booklet, plus some of our stamps and paper. She created the star paper by stamping red and navy blue stars from the "French Mail" set on glossy white paper, and then distressing it by putting a creamy caramel Stampin Up ink pad directly onto the paper. The faux anchor turns & round eyelet embellishments are from the Card Sentiments set. Other paper is from the Earthy Pad


Vicki Chrisman made this cute banner, card and tag also using images from our Seasonal Booklet. At first I didn't even recognize that the paper was ours! The scallop edges really add a decorative touch and create a perfect spot to hold the ribbon.

I think she is going to post some details on her blog on how and what she used but all the images are from our Seasonal Booklet and the red paper is from our Radiant Paper Pad.


There are 3 Canadian images in our Seasonal booklet and I was going use them and make 3 little pennants but I got three great offers today I couldn’t pass up! I was talked into going to garage sales in the morning with my mom, riding around in a 350Z sports car in the afternoon and a BBQ pool party later. So I never got mine made but you can see how cute the images are here.
We did score some great deals at the garage sales. My fav was an old silverware set with the lined wood box for $10.00 and a stunning cutwork tablecloth & napkins for $1.00!

Here is the cute sport car (my ride today) that my husband Scott is selling. He has imported a couple of these cars in the past as a hobby to re-sell but I think he would love to keep this one! It's like brand new. I’m posting his ad here on my blog just in case someone wants to buy it – before he gets too attached to it!
