July greetings, our family kicks off the Summer with celebrating the Canada Day holiday at our cottage, it's the perfect time to enjoy water activities and campfire s'mores! I chose as many red/white elements from the Yankee Doodle line to create my page.
As a clean and simple scrapbooker, I love anything linear or grid pattern so I used a calendar daily doodle (cut to 8.5x11) as my page base. I filled in all the little grid squares with the red/white gingham and red paisley patterned papers from the 6x6 paper pad. I achieved a paper quilt look by machine stitching little floral triangles onto the little square patterns.
Have you tried 8.5x11 scrapbooking? I like to have a mix of formats in my albums and as you can see you can still fit many photos to tell your story on an 8.5x11page.
Thanks for dropping by the blog today, hope you have a wonderful day!
