Hello everyone. I hope you’ve all had a great week where you were able to find some time to get into your crafty zone and get creative. I have, and it’s felt good. This week I’ve been playing with the fabulous One Canoe Two Hazelwood collection. This is a new collaboration between One Canoe Two and American Crafts. You know only great things could come out of these two getting together!
“The Hazelwood collection showcases the simple comforts in life and is accented by sophisticated hand lettering. Create stunning paper projects with an assortment of versatile embellishments in a pleasing palette of delightful mint, honeycomb yellow, and pale pink. ”
If you love a subtle outdoorsy feel on your papers, then this is the collection for you!
Project One: Capture the Memory
When I saw this collection it made me feel like I was in a flower-filled meadow with the butterflies gently fluttering by. I knew I had grab some photos of a trip that my husband and I took this past summer. It was a train trip in Northern Ontario through the Agawa Canyon. At the end of the line, we got off and spent some time walking through this serene scene.
For this layout, I was inspired by both the beautiful florals and pretty butterflies in this collection. I simply used the ephemera and the cork shapes to embellish the page.
Project Two: Boston Love
If you visited the blog earlier in the week, you saw this layout. It was part of the tutorial this week on using the new Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Gel medium as a method of adding foil to your projects. If you haven’t seen it, be sure to look back to check it out. If you love foiling, you will LOVE this product!
Once again, the butterflies in the Hazelwood collection inspired me to pull out these photos of a girls’ trip we took to Boston. We stayed in this gorgeous house, with a gorgeous yard that spilled out into a bay. I love the cork shapes that come in this collection and used one of the words as part of my title. Once again, just adding some ephemera pieces and fussy cutting some flowers from one of the papers was all it took to finish this page off.
Project Three: Hey Little Lady
I’ve had these photos of my son and his grandmother on my agenda to do for a while now. He is 6’3″ and she is maybe 5′ now!
I love this large floral paper in this collection. I decided to just fussy cut some of the flowers and just tuck them in behind the photos. I loved the look and decided not to add too much more, as I didn’t want to take away from the beautiful paper, or the photos. Just adding in some gold words was perfect.
Those are my three projects for this week. Thank you for checking them out. If you haven’t added any of this collection to your stash, you really must do so. It is so gorgeous! You can find it all in the Scrapbook Nerd Store!
