This was a lot of fun to make! I was a "bad Canadian" and didn't get up for the entire game - hey, come on it was 4am on a Sunday! But I did wake up and was able to watch the end and the medal ceremony. Right after it was finished I had the perfect idea on how to add it to my album.
Quick back story: I'm a huge Montreal Canadiens fan, Carey Price is the teams goalie - my goalie. So I support and cheer for him with anything he does. I've been following his career for a long time. My dad and I have even flown from Vancouver to Montreal just to watch some games at the Bell Centre. Let me tell you, there is nothing like it. I digress. So it was important to me to include this in my album to look back on years down the road, cause I'm a Habs fan for life.
I've had a free trial of Photoshop for the past month and it expired the day after the last day of the Olympics, so I had to work quickly on getting my Team Canada picture together. I sized most of the photos to 2x2 (one row has two 2x3's) and printed it as one full 6x8 picture. I heat embossed wood veneer letters with gold embossing powder so it would sparkle and stand out. The Go Gold card is actually a tag from H&M - it was serendipity and I found it in a changing room. It's gold foil and letterpressed and it had to be mine haha. I covered the H&M part with vellum and put the kraft 2014 from the Studio Calico Sugar Rush main scrapbook kit. I used one of my brush script printables (you can download them for free from this post) to add some journalling about the game. I also used my typewriter to journal on some vellum, still my absolutely most favourite way to add some text to photos.
