4th of July

The 4th of July is creeping up around the corner. So in anticipation of one of my favorite holidays, here is a nice layout to remember those parades, barbecues and firework displays.

For this layout, you will need Outdoors and More's Americana red paper, Americana Border paper, Americana Old Glory paper, Bill of Right paper, Americana Alphabet, Americana Tags, Americana Elements or you can get the Americana Dark Blue Kit.

You could also add the July Stickers, Patriotic Alphabet or the Americana Light Blue Kit, which are not used in this layout, but fit nicely with it.

Using the Red paper as the base, rip the Old Glory paper about 5" from the top and attach to the Red paper. Next, rip the Border paper about 4" from the top and attach to the Old Glory paper.

Attach the word "Freedom" to the top right, letters were taken from the Americana Alphabet.

Attach the Blue and Brown tags to the bottom left corner, tags taken from the Americana Tags.

Decorate tags with heart from the Americana Elements and a star from the Americana Tags. Also, a strip of paper is used from the Bill of rights paper. Use some lace to decorate through the holes.

For the picture frame, cut a 4"x6" piece from the Old Glory paper and frame it with a piece from the Bill of Rights paper.

I like this layout, and I love the 4th of July. How this layout will bring some joy to you this Independence Day.

Happy Scrapping!
