Stashbusting: Patriotic Pages

As I mentioned yesterday, I recently challenged myself to use this patriotic collection by Pebbles I have been hanging around in my stash … or get rid of it.

I still really love the designs, so I decided to put it to work. I created three layouts with it. I shared the first layout with you yesterday. Today, I will be sharing the other two.

RED, WHITE, & BLUE

This is a fun page about my daughter’s first time marching in a hometown 4th of July parade. I added a feminine touch to this page, by using the floral paper from the collection and adding in a lacey doily behind my photos.

The doily is placed at the cross section of the two patterned paper bands going vertically and horizontally across the page. It was also a great place to add an embellishment cluster.

The stars are simple red glitter “foamies” stickers from Michael’s. The dimensional rosette, pinwheel, and American sticker are so much fun together!

I had fun putting this title together with the three different alphabet stickers. Below the title is where I added my typed journaling strips.

This second page is a simple one and is also one of my go-to designs for two horizontal photos.

STADIUM OF FIRE

The pictures on this page aren’t the best quality-wise, but it records the memory of that night as a family, and that is what matters to me.

Another cluster of dimensional rosette stickers, surrounded by lots of sparkly red stars! Classic!

I added some interest to this side of the page, but adding a star gem to the center of the letter “o” … it’s enough to draw your eye across the page and make it feel “embellished.”

Stashbuster: 4th of July Family Picnic

I’ve had this patriotic paper collection by Pebbles in my stash for several years now. I still love it, but I decided it was time to use it or move it out.

I created one two-page layout and two single page layouts with it and then put it in my purge pile. I’ll share the two-pager today … come back tomorrow to check out the two single page layouts.

EUBANK FAMILY PICNIC

Jana Eubank 4th Family Picnic 1

Whenever I’m creating a two-page spread, I like to have a horizontal line that bleeds across the gutter (or middle) of the page. It’s not a necessity, but to me, it helps to keep the eye moving across the page.

It’s a little hard to notice, but I fussy-cut the patriotic bunting from one of the patterned papers in this collection to go underneath my photos. Banners were really popular on pages a few years ago, and I think we need to bring them back! They always make a project feel so festive!

What’s a patriotic page without lots of stars, right?! I grouped these red Jolee’s stickers around a cluster of dimensional stickers. Some of the dimensional stickers are from a coordinating Pebbles collection and some were purchased from the Target Dollar Spot in the last year or two.

I love a title with mixed fonts! Here I used a red puffy alphabet set by Seven Paper along with some silver foil striped thickers by American Crafts.

I had lots of journaling for this page and chose to draw my own journaling lines and handwrite it this time. I like the casual feel it added to this layout!

Happy 4th of July!

I couldn’t let this holiday without saying how much I love my country! I am grateful for the freedoms I enjoy and grateful for the men and women who nobly protect and guard those freedoms. I love you, America!

I have a patriotic double-page layout to share with you in honor of the holiday, featuring the adorable Sweet Liberty Mini Theme by Echo Park Paper.

CELEBRATE

The tickets at the top of the page were handcut from the cut apart sheet. I scored and folded them to give them a bit more dimension before adding them to my page.

More cute cut files by Lettering Delights! The flag and “Celebrate” title block are both from the Patriotic set. I love that the flag has a bit of wave to it! I added a flagpole cut from a strip of navy cardstock.

On the right side of the page, I created this cute little cluster using the Sweet Liberty stickers and a few brads from my stash. Mmmm! Puts me right in the mood for a sweet summer treat!

Echo Park Paper: USA Letters

Happy Weekend, Friends! While I was shopping the Target Dollar spot one day, I came across some USA letters … my home was in need of a little bit more red, white, and blue, so I brought them home to liven up the place. I decided to spruce them up even more by decorating them with the Echo Park Paper Sweet Liberty Mini collection.

My favorite little icon from this collection is the paper boat sticker! How cute is that little guy?! I placed him on the letter “S” front and center! It also inspired me to die cut a little paper boat shelf-sitter to go next to my letters.

I found the paper boat in the Silhouette Design Store (Design #59900 by Sweet Afton). I used the stickers and cut-aparts from the collection to make the little flags. The pole in the center of the boat was created using a wooden caramel apple stick (found at the grocery store or in the food crafts section of craft stores).

I wanted the letters to have a bit more interest and dimension to them, so I cut strips of the red/white striped “Sweet Fireworks” paper and “Journaling Cards” paper to create rosettes for each one. I layered them up with various circle and pinked/scalloped circles from my stash and the darling stickers from this set.

I love these letters! They were the perfect project to brighten up our decor for the holiday.
