Three Amigos July Blog Hop

Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog hop.  We are three Close to My Heart Independent Consultants with a love for stamping and scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you.  On the 3rd of each month we feature a different CTMH product and create a card, layout, or other project.  There are only three stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

This month we are sharing a blast from the past. I'm sharing a Fourth of July layout I put together about 5 years ago. This layout is simple, but perfectly showcases the photos. I used the Reflections pattern book for my layout designs, and stamps to create a custom patterned paper. The right page features a flip flap, allowing me to add an additional picture and journaling without cluttering the original design.

I dry embossed the cut-out stars and sanded them to reveal the embossed pattern. The USA letters are dimensional elements. The phrase "made in the" was created from alphabet rub-ons.

I added a flip flap on the right page and used one of the cut-out stars to hold the flap closed.

Thank you for stopping by today. Hop over to Lisa's blog and Donna's blog to see what they created for you.
