Yankee Doodle Collection: Happy 150 Canada by Karen Hanson

Hi everyone! It's Karen from ScrappyCanuck Studios, and today I am celebrating with Doodlebug! Why? Well, Canada happens to be celebrating it's 150th birthday this July 1st, so this born and raised Canadian grabbed some paper and got crafty. Because let's face it, 150 is a big deal and I am always looking for a good excuse to craft! Who is with me?!
Now besides the fact that Canada is having a big birthday, I am also celebrating with Doodlebug because of the release of this cute new collection called Yankee Doodle. Now this collection is full of all sorts of red, white and blue fun, but don't be afraid to isolate a colour or two like I did for these 3D numbers that I plan on using for a centerpiece on the picnic table. And while this collection truly is perfect for the 4th of July or a trip to/around the States, it is also perfect for layouts or projects about picnics or other summer adventures!
In fact, up here in Calgary, we also celebrate a pretty famous rodeo/fair called the Calgary Stampede during the second week of July so I decided to add a bit of Stampede fun onto my 3D letters. Now I get to keep this cute piece up right through to the middle of July (although I might just switch out the party hat for a cowboy hat)! This cute horse is from the Odds and Ends pack in this collection and is probably my favourite piece in the whole collection... ...although these hearts and stars (especially the vellum) are a close second! And if the Odds and Ends don't give you enough to love... about the Patriotic Posie Shape Sprinkles that layer perfectly on a flower shaped
die cut?!
And while you are playing around mixing and matching different types of products, don't forget to dip into your twine stash to add even more texture to your project! The red and white Ladybug Doodle twine is a perfect fit!
You know, the flexibility and versatility of Doodlebug collections really is one of the things that I love the most about them! Mix and match across product types and even collections, and even isolate themes within themes! Which has me am I going to use Yankee Doodle next? Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Karen
