In the Groove

Happy Canada Day and 4th of July, and a big hooray for wherever you call home! July is a month of fun and celebration, and we hope you’ll enjoy kicking it off with The Groove!

In this issue, you’ll find layouts celebrating the spirit of “home”. You’ll also be challenged to make a home-town pride layout of your own, and be eligible to win one of three Mega Expansion Packs for Scrapbook MAX! 2.0!

Read on for news on the latest digital scrapbooking kits, and for fun scrapbooking inspiration!

O, Canada!

Canada Day is celebrated on July 1. This year, Canada is 144 years young! Here are two gorgeous red-and-white layouts. ValerieElaine gets into the spirit with a fireworks display, and Marion displays gifts she received from Canadian friends made in our very own Scrapbook MAX! community – how cool is that?

4th of July – “Take Two!”

Happy 235, USA! Whether you’re celebrating with a town parade, a barbecue, or a gathering with family and friends, we hope you enjoy this special day! Does the layout below look familiar? Check out stangergirls’ 4th of July layout featured at the top of the newsletter and the second one below. She shows us how you can take the same favorite photo and use it in a completely different way, still getting spectacular results. It’s all about getting creative (and using a photo as many times as you want is the advantage of going digi!). Gorgeous!
