Scrapbooking Challenge

Hello Crafters!!

Today I am participating in the Heart 2 Heart Challenges Blog scrapbook challenge to use Red and White Daisy in a scrapbook layout.

Here's how this month's scrapbook challenge works:

"This month’s scrapbook challenge is a color combo: Red & White Daisy with the option of Blue!  It’s not a coincidence that this color combo corresponds with all of the flags of “Close To My Heart countries” and that both Canada and the United States celebrate their independence this month.  You can use any shades of blue and any neutrals to your project, but please keep the focus on Red (Ruby or Cranberry) & White Daisy.  Your project doesn't have to be patriotic, but it certainly could be!  Please mention which CTMH colors you use in your scrapbooking project.  You must also have some SPARKLE (red shimmer trim, sparkles, or base & bling, anyone?) AND sewing too!  Real or faux, it’s up to you!"

I created the following one page layout for our challenge:

I used "Ruby" as my red for this challenge.  I decided this would be a Fourth of July layout since we have plans for the upcoming holiday.  I may need another page but I will wait to see how many photos I end up with.  I did decide to add a blue to my layout and chose "Pacifica".

To get started I took out our Make it From Your Heart, Volume 1.  I used Pattern 1 on page 6 as a starting point for my layout.  I cut my cardstock pieces the same dimensions as listed but moved them around a bit and added some layers.

The "2014" was cut out using our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge which were cut at 2".  The word "Independence" was cut using our exclusive Artbooking Cricut cartridge and were cut at 1".

All the stamped images came from our June Stamp of the Month "Kaboom". I random stamped the "2014" which a starburst from the stamp set to give them some dimension.

I used our Red Shimmer Trim to cover a piece of cardstock and then adhered the "2014" to the top using 3D Foam Tape.

I added the "Independence" sentiment by adhering one of our 12 x 12 Memory Protector Flip Flaps.  I can add two additional photos to the other side.  I just LOVE our flip flaps!  They come in so many sizes and can add so much to a project.
