Good morning! Today I have one more layout to share with the January Gossamer Blue kit. I was especially inspired to focus on the red and blue and scrapbook our 4th of July parade photos. We have an amazing tradition in my small town and there isn't anywhere else we would rather spend the 4th. Our parade is a wonderful way to celebrate our freedom and it's important to me to document that each year. As you can imagine, I had a lot of photos and managed to fit 11 of them on this layout along with a lot of journaling that I slid into a Simple Stories pocket.
Studio Calico Printshop collection and its text patterned paper makes a
great background. To help the bright colors pop, I used black cardstock
as the base. I also made use of the cut files this month and cut
"happy" as my title from the 6x6 Simple Stories paper pad.
cut file star was another part of my inspiration to do a 4th of July
layout this month. I added embellishments here and there - flair,
die-cuts and more!
second page, I embellished the largest Simple Stories pocket with more stars, a chipboard color wheel and flair.
for my journaling this month I used one of the Gossamer Blue exclusive
cards and a Simple Stories 4x6 card to adhere the October Afternoon
chipboard speech bubbles. The bubbles gave me a unique format to add
more details about the holiday and what it means to our family.
Thanks for stopping by today! :)
