This week, our designers are focusing on creating patriotic projects of all kinds. We have layouts, cards, altered projects, and even a fun mini album. With both Canada Day and the 4th of July being celebrated this week, it's the perfect time to dig out those red, white, and blue products and have fun with them!
“Time For Fireworks”, by Kay Rogers.
Every year we go to the same location to watch the fireworks. I was so excited the oldest could join us two years ago. A super simple layout of my two girls.

Pinwheel Straw Centerpiece, by Kathy Martin.
To make our family Fourth of July barbeque just a little more patriotic, I created a red, white, and blue centerpiece with Bella Blvd’s All American collection. Not only will this piece create a festive atmosphere, but the pinwheel straws are useable too! I used a die cut and small brads to make the pinwheels and attached them to paper straws with a glue dot. Easy and fun! Happy Independence Day!

“Time for Fireworks” card, by Kathy Martin.
Would you believe that the Fourth of July is one of my son’s absolute favorite holidays? Next to Christmas? Yep! He loves it! He enjoys spending time at the pool or the movies with his dad while I make a feast of potato salad, baked beans, fried chicken and watermelon. What he loves most about the Fourth is getting to light fireworks and stay up later than usual! Just you wait, Christopher, soon it’ll be ‘time for fireworks’!

“USA” card, by Kathy Martin.
Stars and stripes, oh my! The All American collection is one of my favorites from Bella Blvd. There’s something about red, white and blue and these fantastic patterns and icons that make it so fun to create with! One of my favorite accents in the line is the anthem sticker on the Just Write Journaling sticker sheet so I used it for this card’s focal point. A couple die cut stars and a cute little flag accent it perfectly!

“Backyard Fireworks”, by Allyson Meinholz.
I mainly used the All American collection for this layout. I used a sketch for this layout, so I could save time trying to decide on the basic page design. I made the banner using a circle punch and patterned papers. I liked how the scattered sprinkles gray POPPED the photos!
