Welcome to the 4th of July Fantabulous Cricut Crawl - Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!!
In honor of the 4th of July holiday, we're having a Red, White and Blue Crawl. Each Design Team member has created a fabulous project using Red, White and Blue as the main colors, and of course at least one Cricut cut!
If you came from Amy’s blog at www.craftingwithamy.com, then you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to see all the fabulous Design Team creations head on over to Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog to start at the beginning.
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog! There will be Blog Candy along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, and there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant who submits a "Red White and Blue" project at FCCB!
For my project I decided to create a scrapbook layout for my Grandsons first 4th of July! I can’t wait to take photos of him for this page!
I used 3 Cricut carts plus Cricut Craft Room Basics. You just can’t beat CCR for designing projects using multiple carts! The carts used on this layout are Stand & Salute, Independence Day, Plantin Schoolbook, and CCR Basics. I cut the exploding fireworks at the top from Stand & Salute in different sizes using glitter cardstock:
Plantin Schoolbook was used to cut out the title “My First Fourth”!
Independence Day was used to cut out the banners under the title above and the firecracker below:
To create the photo mats I resized a simple scalloped rectangle shape from CCR Basics, cut two and layered them with a piece of the patterned paper from the stack ‘Vintage Nation’ by The Paper Studio that I used throughout the layout.
After I added some ribbon to the mats I popped them up with foam tape on three sides and then added two more smaller mats behind them with stars attached so they can be taken out and used for additional photos or journaling. The stars were cut from Plantin Schoolbook.
I attached some red paper twine to the back of the banner and then attached it to both sides of the layout with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. I love those tiny staples!
Thanks for coming by to see my new 4th of July layout for my Grandson! And for doing so, I am offering some Blog Candy – a 5x7 Anna Griffin embossing folder!
