A Patriotic Page with Melissa Mann

Good Morning! This is Melissa with you today, and I’m excited to share a new project featuring one of my favorite holidays! I always love some patriotic themed scrapbooking supplies and was super excited to put together a red, white, and blue layout using the June 2020 kit and add-ons to share with you all!

I really loved the star cut file that was included in the June 2020 Cut Files and cut three square blocks using the file on white and blue card stock. I used these as a placement holder for my photos and journaling along with one 4″ x 6″ journaling tag from the June 2020 Kit.

I wanted to use photos from our July 4th festivities from 2017; I created 5 square photos in Photoshop in various sizes and placed them on three of the blocks. One block I intentionally left just for my journaling tag. There were so many great red, white, and blue embellishments in this month’s kit that it was super easy to pull this theme off. I knew that I wanted to use the great 4th of July Wood Veneer as my BIG title for the layout. I also created smaller subtitles by using the fun white Puffy Alphabet Banners

I built up lots of layers and textures by using three different cardstock backgrounds; I used some blue watercolor paint, vellum, journaling tags, and patterned paper from the Summer Fun Paper Stack to build up the blocks housing my photos and journaling. Another fun tip is to use foam dots to pop up some elements on your layout to create depth on your project.

Thanks for stopping by, and if you are celebrating the 4th tomorrow, I hope you have a fun and safe day!
