4th of July Inspiration

We've got another day of fabulous idea to help you celebrate the 4th of July.

We are back today with some more 4th of July Inspiration.
We hope that you enjoyed the projects you've seen so far.

It's always fun to look online because you can find so much inspiration everywhere!
Here's some more great party ideas we found online.

Here's what some of our designers created for this big celebration.


Creating this layout was a cinch for me because my layouts tend to use a lot of red, white and blue anyway! Just as you read last week that watermelons and party's go hand in hand for me,July 4th, or Independence Day, and fireworks go together. Independence Day just isn't complete without fireworks. And layout fireworks aren't complete without iRocks!

"Pool Party"

Independence Day is always a fun celebration time for my family.  Every year we are either at the beach or in the pool all day, barbecuing and then heading down to the beach after dark to watch the fireworks go off at the end of the pier.  It's really fun and can't wait to do it again this year!  Last year we were in the pool and here is a great photo of my husband and kiddos having a blast!

For the layout I wanted to focus on the traditional Independence day colors, Red, White & Blue.  I accented that with fun patterned paper from the Endless Summer collection that went with the pool theme of the photo.  For the embellishments, I altered one of the journaling stickers by adding the blue card stock to make a great background for the "July 4th" title and matted "Pool Party" in the same  blue card stock.  I also hand cut my own splash shapes from the card stock and added that beautiful sparkle with Stickles.  I popped the splashes of the page with foam tape.  Makes it look as though the water is splashing right off the page.  So fun!

Hope everyone has a happy & safe holiday!

Supplies:  Endless Summer Collection, Childhood Memories Collection, White Cardstock, Blue Cardstock, Blue, Diamond and Red Stickles, Blue and White Ink, Foam tape, White Gel Pen.

"Land of the Free" Card

I love to make photo cards. They are like a little mini scrapbook page that you can share with friends and family. For the 4th of July, I had a great photo of my little guy with a waving flag and I thought it would be just the thing for a patriotic card. I kept things simple, letting the photo be the star of the show. With the alphabet stickers from the Outdoor Adventure collection, I spelled out half the sentiment. For the word 'Free,' I actually trimmed the word from one of the great patterned paper sheets from the Childhood Memories collection. 

Supplies used:
(alphabet sheet, patterned papers from Outdoor Adventure and Childhood Memories collections) Imaginisce; (kraft card stock) Stampin' Up!; (photo, pen) generic
