"Stars & Stripes" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
Yay for a patriotic line from Bella Blvd! Stars, hearts, flowers, and fireworks … All American has a little bit of everything! Stars are some of my favorite accents to use on a page so I am pumped about all of them in this line. And the "Stars" buttons in Bella's Button Market are perfect to coordinate with this new line too! Thanks for looking.

"USA" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
I am loving this new line! It's got the traditional red, white, and blues going on but there are some light blues and grays mixed in also. And they are a great addition to this patriotic line! I mixed a little light blue and gray into this card by using the border stickers on the Alpha+Bits Stickers. I cut the hearts out of the Borders sheet. Very fun! Thanks for looking!

All American Pinwheel, by Shellye McDaniel.
I love that All American can be used the whole Summer with decorations for Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day. We often have a BBQ of sorts throughout the Summer months and I like having different centerpieces on hand to dress up a buffet table. I used a 12x12 sheet of All American patterned paper for this singular pinwheel. For the stick, I wrapped Designer Tape around a wooden dowel and then attached to the back with a high-tack glue. I kept the design pretty simple by layering the center with a die-cuts, stickers and gems!

All American Wall Art, by Shellye McDaniel.
I keep a plain grapevine wreath on hand and to it I attach seasonal hangings for the door off of the carport, and this little sign will be perfect! I took a scalloped chipboard shape and dressed it with All American papers. To the center, I cut and traced a chipboard star and then layered it with chipboard letters and cut-out pieces. Hanging pieces like this can also be added to a wall or hang from the knob of a cupboard!

“All American Cutie”, by Jennifer Chapin.
As soon as I saw this collection I knew I had the perfect photo to scrapbook. A few years ago we took our daughter downtown to watch the 4th of July parade and although it was super hot, she had a great time collecting candy in her bucket. I stuck with the collection for this layout, and added in some of the new crochet hearts which coordinate with it just perfectly!

“Super Hero”, by Leanne Allinson.
My ten year old son is a huge fan of "The Avengers" and when his dad brought home bubble bath, contained in the shape of Captain America, he was thrilled! I have repeated the star symbol in the photo around the layout at key points, to help the eye travel over the page. And even though I have used a lot of patterned paper, I still have the element of "white" space above the title, where the eye can rest. I have adhered the Navy Dot designer tape to white card stock and trimmed a star shape, similar in size to the small Ciao Chip Icon star. The Ciao Chip Icons and Alphabet also help give the layout depth and dimension. The Red Chevron designer tape has been used in the same manner as the Navy Dot, to create the banners.

“Captain America”, by Jennifer Edwardson.
As soon as we got to Montana for a family wedding last summer Alex found this Captain America hat and HAD to have it. He wore it every constantly and thought it was so cool to be in the US on Canada Day. Though you can't see it in this photo, he is wearing his Canada Day T-shirt with this hat on July 1st. We were leaving to come home before July 4th so I had to get some pics of him before we left and he was happy to pose in his new favorite hat. This collection was of course perfect and I had so much fun adding all the pieces together to showcase this super cute pic of my boy in red, white and blue.
