Don't Feed the Bears

Ummm... I love camping soooo this project is right up my crafty wheel house!  I mean, flannel, bears and adventure! Guess what...XyronandSimple Storiesare team fun and I have a awesome Journal oozing with theCabin Fevercollection!  This collection called for the new Eileen Hull Journal!  An adventure in journaling!
I needed to get cutting the paper with the Eileen Hull Sizzix Journal die. Making the cover front and back.  To make it easy and quick I ran the cuts through theCreative Stationand stuck them right on!

I cut 3 pages at 8x8 and scored 4" using the cabin fever papers.  With the scraps I created smaller pages and tuck spots.  The new Stitched Circle is perfect for scraps and layering.

Inking the pages and cuts with Oxide gives it a worn look.  For the front cover I wanted an earthy rustic pop and the Armor Shield and Trophy Antlers.  It doesn't get anymore rustic than that!

The matboard shield gets some shine with Charred Gold embossing powder.  Bring it to life with…

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card.
