Happy Canada Day and Lisa Wilkinson

Happy Canada Day! And Happy Birthday to my husband Dave :)
We're heading off to camp this week and we're leaving today, but I wanted to do a quick post introducing our second guest designer for July ... Lisa Wilkinson.
Lisa has previously worked with the March kit, and since I knew she adores the Thrift Shop line, I asked her to play with Thrifty Business this month. And as this is the second time Lisa has guest designed here at Up The Street, she has now earned the new title "Recurring Guest Designer" :)
Lisa has had a lot on her plate this month that she wasn't expecting, so I was really touched that she was able to get these beautiful layouts done for me when she could have spending her time otherwise. Thank you so much Lisa :)

My name is Lisa Wilkinson. I live in Tamworth, NH. I am married to the love of my life and am the mommy to 5 amazing children from ages 2-11. I have been scrapbooking for over 12 years and have been addicted ever since I started. I am an everyday scrapper. I scrap everyday things everyday. I love to keep it simple, yet add my own unique touches and embellishing to make the pages truly my own. I love to “mix it up” and use each item to the fullest. The reason I scrapbook is to create something lasting, something that will help us remember all the memories we have created as a family and all the beauty that is around me.
Here are a few layouts that Lisa sent me last night ...
Such fun beach shots! I'm just itching to get some beach photos this year. Our campsite is right down near the lake this week and the weather is forcasting beautifully. Look for an overabundance of beach layouts in the very near future from me ;)
I love the effect that the layers of velvet scalloped trim create ... like waves coming in to shore.
I have mentioned time and again that I cannot get enough of these Maya Road envelopes. And here is another great use for them ... journaling spots.
Lisa has cut the large yellow doily sticker in half to frame the top and bottom of her photo. Such a great way to make the most of your supplies.
Another Maya Road envelope ... this time painted, sponged and misted while wet. So fun :)
These decadent white Prima flowers are lovely left as they are, but inking the edges bring them to a whole new level. And I love how Lisa has made a sweet little wrapped blossom with the dark teal ribbon.
So that's all you'll be hearing from me for the next few days. The campground we're camping at is nearby, so I'll be popping home in a few days to check on things. If you send an e-mail, you should expect a response on Monday or Tuesday.
Until then ... have a great holiday weekend :)
