Here is the latest layout I've completed using a weekly kit from The Stamp Shack. The patterned papers are all from Basic Grey's new line, 'Out of Print.' One neat technique used on this layout was using a bit of water and scrunching up the paper flowers (lower left of layout) to give them a more 3D textured look. After, I inked them with Tim Holtz distress ink. The brads in the flower centres are from Stampin' Up. The 'Good Times' part of the title was cut with a Cricut (I forget which cartridge was used) and the 'Fun' banner was hand cut. I used quite a bit of distressing ink and stickles on this layout as well. The photos are from the 'Pirates in the Caribbean' Night on our Disney Cruise.

Here is a Canada Day Camping layout I created for a challenge that a fellow Canadian Circle member is hosting. Our family went on a camping trip over the Canada Day weekend, so I chose to make this layout a camping theme. I used the 'Cricut Classic Font' cartridge and the 'Campin' Critters' cartridge for this layout and other materials used include Stampin' Up cardstock, Jolee's Canoe Trip stickers and the Creative Memories leaf punch. Now, I just have to get some photos printed from our camping trip to add to this layout.

I recently participated in a fun recipe layout swap! This swap was organized by a fellow Cricut message board member and each participant picked a letter from A-Z and designed a recipe layout for their letter. I chose V and my recipe layout was for 'Vanilla Cupcakes.' Here are some photos for all the great layouts I received. I'll be putting these all together to make a dessert recipe book.
Happy 4th of July to all my American friends! We celebrated the long Canada Day weekend by going camping in Niagara Falls and had a great time! I'm looking forward to scrapbooking all the photos from the weekend. :)
Now to share a scrapbooking layout! Here is the last week's scrapbook page kit from one of my new fave scrapbooking stores, The Stamp Shack. Once I decide which photos to use on this layout, I'll add them along with a title and some journaling.
