Creekside Layout by Gail Lindner

Hello friends and welcome back to the American Crafts blog! It’s Gail here today to share my first creation with the all new Creekside collection by 1 Canoe 2. I absolutely love the gorgeous, serene colors and adventure-inspired sayings and icons in the collection! I can’t wait to share with you how it inspired me to create this layout about my carefree (and occasionally cheeky) little boy!


I think I’ve mentioned before that sometimes an idea is sparked by a certain item such as a sticker, die cut or pattern. For this layout I was inspired by the fabulous globe sticker pictured below. It makes me think of future adventures and a world of possibilities


I decided to create my own globe on my layout and I love the way it turned out!


Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut out a globe design from white cardstock. I chose a design that had lots of openings as I wanted to use several patterned papers from Creekside to fill those openings. I finished off my patterned paper globe with a hand-stitched border.


I added a few embellishment clusters by layering die cuts, stickers and washi tape. This collection is made even better by the touches of gold!


Whether you are heading for adventure soon or looking to document stories of star-gazing or free-spirited children like me, I know you’ll enjoy creating with Creekside!
