Since I'm pretty proud of being born and raised in Canada, I used all Canadian products for this design starting with a base of Girly Bits January Morning. I also used Girly Bits stamping polishes (Little Black Dress, White Wedding and Fire Engine Red). Girly Bits is definitely the most well known Canadian indie brand and for good reason. Pam makes quality products with great customer service. And she overall just seems like a swell human being. She's working hard to put on the first Canadian Indie Expo this June. I bought my ticket so maybe I'll see you guys there? You could buy your very own ticket here. I just need to bite the bullet and buy the plane ticket now. As much as I love Canada, it sure is expensive to fly across this giant country of ours!
The stamping plates and stamper I used are also Canadian, from Alberta's neighbor to the west, Clear Jelly Stamper in beautiful British Columbia. She and a bunch of Canadian Stampaholics came up with two seriously awesome plates for all of us Canucks who are sorely underrepresented in the stamping plate world. I bought Oh Canada! and True North Strong! the second I saw they were released. I used them both in today's design.
In case it's not obvious, I live in Edmonton, the capital of Alberta. Since the Oh Canada! plate has all the capitals on it, there was even an image for my city...hooray! For the stamper I used The Big Bling, my favourite clear stamper to date. Did you know the clear stamper was invented in Canada by Clear Jelly Stamper? Everyone has copied it now but Canada brought us the original!
That's the first random fact about me this week. I'm a proud Canadian, and such a homebody that I'll probably never leave. In the links below, we get to find out more about my Digit-al Dozen friends. It's gonna be fun!
'Til next time...
