Old Glory

We R Memory Keepers has always been an old stand-by favorite of mine. I love their bold use of pattern and color. The Old Glory line inspired me to create this layout of my son. Although it is not "4th of July" themed per say, the photos were taken in July and he was at an age where he didn't really care for the loudness of real fireworks. So we compromised and blew bubble fireworks instead.

The Old Glory line came with an amazing sheet of die-cut stickers that included scalloped borders and embossed images. I added some Stickles (one of my very favorite products) for a little extra sparkle and voila, a great and meaningful layout of my son.

These cards literally took minutes to make using the die-cut sticker sheet, a little ribbon, and again, Stickles. I think it's a ton of fun to make holiday-inspired projects, especially with a line like Old Glory that does all the work for you in a super-cute way. It's kind of nice to think "inside" the box for a change.
Happy 4th of July!
Pin It!
