We have a few more patriotic layouts to share with you today. Both layouts use a fun mix of red, white, and blue products from many of our collections. Make sure to stop by tomorrow, on the 4th of July, when we will release our July, patriotic themed, project sheet!
"Red, White, And Kaboom", by Melissa Stinson.
I love a good opportunity to play with red, white, and blue color combinations, and for this page I dug deep into the Bella "archives" to pull up a few papers from older lines (Socialite and Family Dynamix, anyone?) to use along with the new Surf n Turf blue from the latest Sophisticates additions. I dressed up the chipboard alpha title a bit by first stamping over it using Versamark ink, then heat embossing with blue powder to create a trendy chevron effect. Sometimes when you want a different look with the supplies you have on hand, it really pays to mix collections and alter items to fit your needs.

“Star Art”, by Vivian Masket.
I loved working on today's layout, and pulling out lots of beautiful tone-on-tone papers, including Sprinkles & Lace paper from the Sophisticates collection, in reds, whites, and blues. This layout was a snap to create using star punches and the already-coordinated products. I created four layered star embellishments using three different sizes of star punches and pop dots, added a title and some flags, my journaling block, and finished the layout with a star button for a touch of whimsy.
