Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a summer layout featuring digital cut files and a stamp from Quietfire Design. A few years ago my boys decided to canoe (i.e. float) down the North Saskatchewan River. They launched in Edmonton, and I was instructed to pick them up downstream in three hours time. Unfortunately, the river was quite low and the current slow, and it took a lot longer than the predicted three hours. Of course, my husband had no cell phone with him so I had no idea where the canoe was. I waited and I waited and they finally showed up…… phew. They have never repeated that particular adventure.
I love the versatility of having an electronic die cutting machine. It’s amazing. Need a canoe to embellish a canoeing layout? Presto, wave the magic wand and cut a canoe, paddles and water with your Sizzix Eclips 2. Any size, any colour. Here’s the cut file I used. It’s available as an svg file from the Quietfire Design website , or as a studio file for the Silhouette Cameo. I love the little heart cut outs.
I used my Brother sewing machine to add a few waves under the water and then accented the page with a few Fancy Pants Flair badges from the Attwell line. They add some nice dimension and interest to the page. Easy and done, another adventure documented for the scrapbook.
