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.
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!
