A 4th of July Scrapbook Layout Using Chipboard Fireworks

Now that the 4th of July has passed do you have some photos that need to be scrapped? I sure do! I used three photos from this year of the kids enjoying their fireworks.


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

After layering some patterned papers up, I then used chipboard pieces from the Creative Embellishments Fireworks 2 and Creative Embellishments 4th of July sets and added some VersaMark to them and then heat set them with some Hologram Embossing Powder.



I also used one of the flairs from the Creative Embellishments Watercolor 4th of July Flair set.


In the photo below you can see how pretty the Hologram Embossing Powder is. I love all the sparkly colors it has in it. Perfect for fireworks.

A Bright & Fun Birthday Scrapbook Layout

Hello! Today I have a bright & fun birthday scrapbook layout of my daughter on her 2nd birthday. She loved her Elmo cake! 


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I first painted some Clear Gesso onto white cardstock and then painted some red, yellow & blue color spray onto the white cardstock. Then I stamped the Creative Embellishments Grunge Music Note Sheet Stamp around onto the background using StazOn Ink in Piano Black.


Next, I used red embossing powder on the Creative Embellishments Out Of This World Frame and then adhered the frame into the center of my layout. I also embossed the Creative Embellishments Balloon Set 1 with red, blue, yellow, and black on the strings using embossing powder.


I also used the cake title from the Creative Embellishments Birthday Word Set and embossed it with red embossing powder. Then I adhered the title over a ribbon bow I made and a bed of red paper flowers. Added a few stickers that I had and tucked in some black thread in a few places and then my layout was complete.


I created this layout for the Creative Embellishments July Challenge. Below is the challenge photo and the twist is to use a birthday theme.

How To Make A Magnetic Frame For School Photos


School is still a little over a month away before it starts back up again but I saw these cute school frames and had to make them now. I used a photo of my daughter from her 8th grade year before everything switched to homeschooling.


Some of the products I have used have been provided to me from various companies I design for. The opinions I share are solely my own, and I only design for companies that I completely love their products. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I found these cute SVG school photo frames and used my Silhouette Designer Studio Software to create my cut file.


I cut a square of the StyleTechCraft Glossy Craft Vinyl in Apple Green, Brown, Red, and White and put them in each corner of my cutting mat to match where I have placed each element of the frame to be cut in the Designer Studio.


 Then I cut them out using the Silhouette Cameo 4.


Next, I used a Deflecto Magnetic Sheet. These magnetic sheets are great, they are white on one side making them perfect to customize almost any way you want. They are 8" x 15" and come 3 in a pack. They are super easy to cut with scissors or with a craft knife.


and with my Xyron Mega Runner, I adhered a photo of my daughter onto it.


After adhering the photo, I then placed the frame of the apple that was cut from the StyleTechCraft Glossy Red Craft Vinyl onto the photo. Then added the stem and the leaf to the top of the apple and then cut it out along the outer edge of the apple, leaf, and stem.


Next, using the StyleTechCraft Clear Transfer Tape, I transferred the wording onto the front of the apple.


Then I was done and ready to hang on the fridge. These would also make great gifts for Grandparents. Or change it up some and add a photo of your favorite teacher and have it say greatest teacher or world's best teacher to give as a teacher gift.


To help me organize my Vinyl I use the Deflecto Large Three-Drawer Organizer. I organized my vinyl by rainbow colors with the top drawer being reds, oranges, and yellows. Middle drawer are greens, blues, and purples and bottom drawer are all the neutral colors like black, white, and browns.

I Think You Are Awesome Card

Today I am sharing a red, white, and blue you are awesome card. Even though this card has some dimension it is still flat so is still easy to send in the mail.


I first die cut out a few different sizes of the Poppystamps Flora Bloom Solids Die Set from a 4" x 5.25" card front and then adhered it to the largest Poppystamps Double Stitch Rectangle Frame that I cut out using the Memory Box Twinkling Jewel Glitter Pad. Then I adhered the frame to the front of my card with 3D Foam adhesive.


Next, using the Poppystamps Flora Bloom Solids Die Set again I cut out the flowers using blue and red cardstock in the same sizes that I used on the white card front.  Then adhering the flowers into the cutouts from the white cardstock to the front of my card. Then using the Poppystamps Flora Blooms dies I cut them out in white cardstock in one flower size smaller than the blue and red ones and pop dotted them into the center of them to give my card some dimension. I stamped the sentiment using the Birch Press You Are Awesome Stamp Set.
