Canada Day is always a fun family celebration for us and I always like to capture the memories in photos. Over the years our celebrations have changed. We always went to the Canada Day Parade in our hometown and fireworks that evening in the neighbouring town. The last few years have changed with work commitments from the older children and documenting each year helps us remember the changes.
With today being National Camera Day—let’s finish up with series of Getting To Know Your Camera.

This Japonism Bundle of products is absolutely stunning. It was inspired by Japanese Art. It has a soft pastel hue to it, and can be used to create projects for baby, family, a picnic at the park, flowers, outdoors, etc.

It’s that time of year…time for family vacations! So much of the fun is in the planning and the getting there. Why not start your vacation pages with pictures of the eager adventure-bound faces on the plane and stories and memorabilia of the travel plans?
Here I’ve paired the Gallivant collection with the Jumbo Jet Border Maker Cartridge to create some easy vacation borders.
Wherever your adventures take you this summer, I hope you enjoy the journey!
When I saw the Made with Love Collection, I knew I had to make a mini album!!
Mini albums are the perfect handmade gift to give a friend or family member.
These beautiful Japonism Pastel papers and Natural Laser Cut Embellishment products were designed to honor the influence of Japanese art on western culture and feature both natural themes and subtle graphics in soft hues.
It was fun showing you how to do a few paper folding techniques, and incorporating them into the borders as well.
Create a few of your own borders, and share with us on social media using #creativememories .
Some of the best memories we’ve shared have been gathered with friends and loved ones around a dining room table, the kitchen counter or island while someone cooks, or meeting up for a picnic or dinner to catch up.

When you’re back home, spreading out your pictures and remembering the day, the Adventure Collection’s earthy designs, colors and images will help you tell the story in vivid detail.
My beautiful niece recently married, and I offered (I would’ve begged) to make her wedding album for her! The new Forever Yours Wedding Collection with its elegant, timeless pieces, along with the lovely photos taken, are all I need to create the perfect keepsake of her special day.
Here are a few borders I’ve created to personalize the Forever Yours Fast2Fab Album I’m using. Something I love about making borders to decorate my pages is that they are so versatile: they work well on any style of page, from Fast2Fab to black to white.
Celebrate Canada Paper Pack doesn’t have to just be used for Canada Day and the papers don’t just have to be used in Canada! This versatile paper paper pack can be used for so many different layouts and occasions. There are so many great designs included.
