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.

Summer So Far and a Sneak Peek

Oh, my! Where have the weeks gone. It seems to happen like that every year in June … I’m so sorry that my posting has taken a backseat for the past few weeks. Hopefully, you have been out enjoying the beginning of your summer, too.

So what has been going on in my neck of the woods? Let’s see … last time I left off with you I was heading off to HSN with Lisa for the June 11th show. Here’s a selfie of us in between appearances. (Left to Right: Me, Jennifer Duncan, and Lisa Bearnson) I feel so grateful to work with such wonderful people!

I was home for a day, and then left home again for a week to go on our Summer family vacation to San Francisco, California.

Our favorite thing was to take the red, open-topped, double-decker bus around town to see all of the sites. The ticket was good for three days and we could hop on and off as many times as we wanted. We saw every site there was to see and loved every minute of it. San Fran is such a cool city!

Along with our 4th of July celebrations last week, this cute girl of mine turned eight years old. She was also baptized and confirmed a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Saturday. We are so thankful to all of our friends and family who came to spend time with us on this special day.

As you can imagine I haven’t had a lot of time for scrapping, but I *DO* have a sneak peek to share with you of one of Lisa’s new products that will be on HSN on July 23rd. These are the Inspired Inc. All Occasion Title Cards … and you know what is AWESOME about these babies?! Not only are there cards in there for every holiday and season of the year (which is awesome all by itself), but dozens of the cards include dimensional elements! How cool is that?! If you are like me and love embellishing your pocket-style cards, you are going to love these. Here is a a peek.

And then of course I need to show you a pocket-style page I put together using these cute cards.

As we get closer to the show, I will share with you some traditional-style scrapbook pages I created with these cute cards. Guess what?! Even though the show is not until July 23rd, you can pick up this cute pocket card kit now if you would like! You can FIND THEM HERE in the HSN.com store.

Have a great week!
