Hey all and Happy July!
Terhi here with you, just in time to celebrate 4th of July with the citizens of the USA.
I’d like to share something patriotic from here where I live, in Finland. I made this scrapbook layout to capture our story about the way we celebrate our Independence Day, and from the end of this post you can also find a process video to learn how to make similar layout yourself!
Celebrating Independence Day in Finland usually means another snowy day, and therefore our activities during the day are either inside a building or somehow tied up with the snow. In my family the tradition is to go hiking in the snowy woods, set a campfire and have some delicious outdoor food (and hot cocoa!) in crisp freezing air. Sure the day has some other repetitive elements, but I feel this one is the closest to my heart.
Even though the Finnish Independence Day is all white and blue in many, many ways, I chose to create this layout using the Big Top Dreams collection with its amazingly rich colors. These colors shows exactly how much fun it is to slide down a hill with a sled, or be under a snowy tree when another kicks it hard to the arm!
This layout was very easy to do, however fussy cutting all the flowers sure took some time. Take a look to the process video below to see how it all came together. If you can’t see the video here, click here to my YouTube channel.
