Cooking With Cricut "Go Canada" Cartridge Showcase

Hello my crafty followers. Today I am going to showcase this amazing cartridge called " Go Canada"  I was so excited when I saw that Cricut was coming out with this cartridge. As soon as it was released back in Oct, the hunt was on....this was a must have!
Yes......I am Canadian Eh!
Here our a few projects I came up with:


For my first project today I have a Diagonal Double Pocket card which you can find the instruction for at Splitcoaststampers.
As soon as I saw the coffee and donut cut it reminded me of our famous Tim Horton's Coffee Shop which you can find all over Canada serving the best coffee and donuts and delicious little timbits, so I added a gift card to my project since everyone love Timmys!!!


My second project I decided on a gift box which I added maple cookies to. Again instruction can be found at Splitcoaststampers for the box, I used both the maple tree and syrup cuts from this cartridge.
Canada is well know for it maple syrup....... Once you taste the real Canadian Maple Syrup, you will be hooked for life.




Next I have a 12X12 layout using a few more of the great cuts from this cartridge. I have used the Canadian flag to make it into a hidden journal tag with my Gypsy. This is my nephews son waving the Canadian flag in front of Canada House in Banff Alberta on Canada Day 2007. Canada is known for its vast forests and mountain ranges and the animals that reside within them, such as moose, beaver, grizzly, geese and the common Loon.



Last is another 12X12 layout, this time showing the province where I live, which is Alberta along with our Canadian Beaver which is our National Animal Symbol, toques and again my nephews son enjoying some real fine Canadian Bacon.

Provo craft did a wonderful job when designing this cartridges....I just love it and think everyone should run out and get it.
Canadian or not!
I am going to enter the layouts into this weeks challenge over at Getting Scrappy: this weeks challenge  is for the love of chocolate, scrap about chocolate or use chocolate supplies (twine, ribbon, paper etc.)
Thank you for stopping by my blog and checking out my showcase!

Great Job Jenny! My husbands family is from Toronto so I'm very aware of Timmy's and Maple Cookies! Whenever we go up there or someone comes to visit us these two things are on my hoarding list! Oooooh...I so wish I had a Maple Cookie right now! I need to buy this cart to. Thank for sharing-Holly :-)
