Pocket Page Scrapbooking with Karla – Happy Birthday Canada!

Hi friends! It’s Karla here today with a fun birthday layout for this week’s theme on the SpiegelMom Scraps blog – ‘Scrapbook a Birthday You Normally Wouldn’t’! Well, since it was recently Canada’s 150th birthday, I thought I’d use this opportunity to scrapbook Canada Day! I grabbed the Honor Guard, Be True 2 You and My Clementine sequin mixes to match with my photos and the papers I was using. I really love mixing and matching the amazing colours in each sequin mix! I love the iridescent colours in the My Clementine mix – when I put it on my paper it took on a beautiful green. And the Honor Guard has a gorgeous red – perfect for 4th of July and Canada Day, but also wonderful for any time you need a pop of red colour!

I used the awesome Strong & Free collection from Wild Whisper and grabbed some of their 4×6 and 3×4 cards as well as some of the patterned paper from the 12×12 sheets. I layered some of the diecut and cork (linked below) and stamped a date. Now, I don’t know about you, but I can NEVER get those date stamps to work right the first time, lol! So, I just roll with it and make it look like I meant for it to look like that 😉 The maple leaf journaling card was beautiful, but of course I love adding a few sequins to make it shine!

This fun Happy Birthday cutfile and the ones I used above are FREE HERE, along with lots of other awesome cutfiles! I used a gold pen to colour in the flames and add an ombre effect to the letters. The secret to getting the files down in the right spot after you cut them is to lay the negative cut down and then glue in your cuts. After, you simply pull up the negative frame. I used a border strip from the Wild Whisper papers and added a row of sequins with Glossy Accents. A few more of the cutfiles layered over top and a little maple leaf tag hanging on some SpiegelMom Scraps Hunter Green burlap string completes this card!
