Christy Riopel designed the following layout featuring FabScraps for the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog approximately 4 years ago. The line of patterned paper and chipboard from FabScraps no longer exists however the beauty of the design is timeless. The Blog Post The copy for the blog post that Christy wrote was very short and to the point….exactly like Christy. There was nothing complicated about her teachings and her designs. Here is the post …. as written in her words…. “I wanted my layout to hint towards the military nature of the Museum so I cut pennant flags from FabScraps patterned paper and arranged them like a soldiers medals. I curled the paper with my fingers to add dimension to the page.

Hello everyone Kerry Engel here today on the blog having fun with the Canada 150 logo. Did you know that the super cute Canada 150 logo is available for you to download? There are so many imaginative ways for us to use it. A quick search on Pinterest revealed that quilters have taken up the challenge but I haven’t seen many paper crafters doing anything imaginative with this inspirational design.
