Hello Pebbles friends, Becki here. I’m excited to share a Fourth of July layout with you. The fourth of July isn’t a holiday that I typically scrapbook. The new America the Beautiful collection changed that. I couldn’t resist playing with this collection and pairing it with the adorable glittery “sparkle” title from the Jen Hadfield DIY Home collection. I’ve been
hoarding saving these words for the perfect project. Isn’t the word “sparkle” perfect for a Fourth of July layout?
I started by gathering a few supplies to accompany my “sparkle” title. I wanted the traditional red, white, and blue color scheme with a big pop of gold and a little bit of woodgrain to make a border.
I have to say, I love how this layout turned out. I’m so glad I took the time to take photos and create a Fourth of July layout.
Below the “sparkle” titled I added “July 4th” in Thickers. Although the layout is titled “sparkle” I wanted the Fourth of July to be on the layout as well. I stitched the “July 4th” Thickers with my sewing machine. Stitching over Thickers not only keeps them in place but it adds a little bit of texture as well.
I adhered the “sparkle” die cut with adhesive foam squares. I wanted it to pop off the layout. It also made it easier to tuck my photo and a few other die cuts under it.
I finished the layout by adding some red glitter star stickers. They add some more sparkle to the layout (you can never have too much glittery sparkle, right?). My handwritten journaling was the finishing touch to this layout. I love the personal touch that handwriting gives to my layouts.
Do you have the America the Beautiful collection on your desk? If not, you need to get it. It’s perfect for creating Fourth of July layouts. Thanks for stopping by the Pebbles blog today. I’ll see you again soon!
