Are you ready to celebrate the 4th of July this weekend? We are already celebrating this week on the American Crafts Blog, and I was up yesterday, with a new Patriotic themed layout, using the True Stories collection from Shimelle!
How To: Die cut (or punch) stars from White cardstock and back with Red and Blue patterned papers. Place stars on White cardstock background and machine stitch a few of the stars, to adhere it to your paper. Create a photo strip look by printing your photos in a strip format or place individual photos in a strip design on the background paper. Embellish the left side of the photos with wood veneers, cork stickers and wood buttons. Create a long title on the right side of the photos using your favorite Thickers.
