“Made In The USA” card, by Shellye McDaniel.
Ever since being introduced to the Crochet Hearts, I've wanted to make a butterfly from them! For this card, I took two of the smaller McIntosh hearts and centered them over the journal sticker. For the middle of the butterfly I used a snippet from one of the chipboard Icon pieces and attached it with a fabric glue. The antennas were formed by adding two pearl stick pins through the crochet hearts and then bending them just a little.

“American Flag” card, by Shellye McDaniel.
The striped and polka dotted Designer Tapes were just perfect for creating the flag for this card. I cut a piece of cardstock to 3" X 4.5" and then applied strips of the striped Designer Tape. Next, I cut a smaller piece of cardstock to 1.75" X 2", covered with the navy dot Designer Tape and then machine stitched around the edges before attaching to the striped piece. I kept the design simple by embellishing with a couple of hand-cut flowers and sticker sentiment.

“July” card, by Kathy Martin.
The All American collection is definitely one of my all-time favorite lines from Bella Blvd! Stars and stripes and everything red, white and blue are packed into this patriotic line and it’s so much fun to create with! Wishing you all a memorable July Fourth with your family!

“I Love The USA” card, by Kathy Martin.
I combined some of my favorite Bella Blvd products, Flags, Ciao Chip Icons and Just Write Stickers in a collage along with ribbon and foam adhesive tape, for plenty of texture. I can’t wait until the big day to celebrate with family, have a BBQ and make some memories to scrap!

"Time for Fireworks" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
Happy 4th of July! I tried to throw a little bit of everything patriotic on this card: a red, white, & blue color scheme; stars and stripes; flags; fireworks; etc! Hey, it worked! And I hope your day is full of fireworks!

"Happy Fourth of July" card, by Gretchen McElveen.
This patriotic card is a bit simpler. I used the starred frame sticker from the All American Just Write Journaling Stickers sheet as part of the background for the card. Then I cut the large heart out of the Borders & Cute Cuts sheet to add to the center. Then I added a few round stickers & chipboard embellishments as well as the sentiment to the right side of the card. Simple but effective! Thanks for looking!

“All American” card, by Wendy Wagner.

“Happy Fourth of July” card, by Wendy Wagner.
I thought this was a fun card with the adorable firecracker sticker! I added a little fun with a bit of a feather peeking out the side. I had to add some sparkles with gems and stickles. I also cut the strips and then crinkled them by hand to add texture to the bottom portion of the card. Hope you enjoyed my projects as much as I did making them!
