July 1st is Canada Day. Ironically, I’m married to a Canadian and I know I have Canadian readers; however, I’ve never made a printable for my Canadian friends (and family). Thanks to Julie (a blog reader and newsletter subscriber) for suggesting that I make one — my creative wheels started to turn. Instead of another 5×7 or 8×10, how about a few 3×4 Canada Day Printables?
They’re smaller, easier to include with a letter or card, put on the refrigerator, set in a stand, etc. They also make great printable journal cards or place cards, adding a little extra charm to your festivities.
Canada Day Printable Journal Cards
I’m no history buff (confession: I actually suck at history); however, for clarification purposes, I thought I would share that Wikipedia defines Canada Day as ” The national day of Canada. A federal statutory holiday, it celebrates the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the Constitution Act, 1867 (then called the British North America Act, 1867), which united the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada.”
So, July 1st, 1867 started a yearly holiday that is probably comparable to our July 4th. My husband isn’t much of a holiday celebrator, so we don’t usually do anything for Canada Day — BUT, I do think these Canada Day printable journal cards could come in pretty handy…

I love putting journal cards in floral frogs around my house and I wouldn’t hesitate to use one of these around the first of July. I love the uniqueness of each one of the designs too — they’re simple, but festive. If you host a barbecue or party, these would be great to put on the food table, at each guests place setting or in a basket for everyone to take home. They make great bookmarks too!
