Echo Park: July Two-Pager

Can you believe that next week it will be July already?! I have a double-page July 4th layout using the Echo Park Celebrate America collection to share with you today using one of my favorite time-savers … collage photo prints!

JULY

When I have a gazillion pictures, my go-to technique is to combine them all together on one larger sheet using a photo collage.

There are several ways to do this, you can use an app, photoshop, or do it by hand. I used a Quick Collage by Scrapbooks Etc. that is available as a free download here.

I used the same collage for both sides of the page, and anywhere I didn’t have a photo, I used that space to house a title or an embellishment.

To add a bit more decoration to the collage photos, I fussy-cut patriotic banner strips from the Patriotic Banners paper and added them in between each row.

If you haven’t tried Carta Bella’s Felt finish cardstocks … you NEED to! They are my favorite!!! Here I am using the Navy Blue Felt Designer Cardstock as the base for this spread.

I used the red star pattern from the back of the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper to add a pop of red in a few around the page. In the upper left corner, I created a large pennant with a smaller pennant on top created with the Splash Gingham paper. The little cluster of elements at the top of the pennants are all from the Celebrate America Sticker Sheet.

I used the Splash Gingham paper for my title block and then fussy-cut the large flag from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper to add a bit of decoration and draw focus to the title. The “July” word was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo machine and Navy Blue Felt Designer Cardstock. The “July” word is from the “July 4th Phrase” cut file by Lori Whitlock (Design #19100 in the Silhouette Design Store).

Here’s a closer look at some of the cute stickers I used to decorate different areas of the page.

I used a tag to house a bit of journaling in the bottom right corner of the layout. The Liberty Bell was cut from the 4×4 Journaling Cards paper.
