Red White Kaboom Blog Hop


Welcome to the Red, White, Kaboom! Blog Hop! Happy 4th of July! We hope you are having a great holiday and thanks for spending a little time with us today. You should have come from Angela’s Blog . If not, go back and start the hop at Alicias Blog. We hope you enjoy our creative efforts we have to share today. Enjoy your holiday!

For my Project I made a two page photo layout. It is all set up and ready to insert some four by six photos and add some journaling. First I picked out three designer papers that I wanted for my background. Two of them are from “The Paper Studio” and one is from “Colorbok”. I cut them to the following measurements: The first paper I cut two pieces at 11 3/4 Inches by 3 3/4 inches. From the second sheet I cut two rectangles at 7 7/8 inches by 5 3/4 inches.  I cut the third sheet of designer paper at 7 7/8 inches by 5 3/4 inches. Then I glued them to two twelve by twelve pieces of dark blue card stock.. 


The photo mats are cut to the following measurements: White card stock 4 pieces 4 1/2 inches by 6 1/2 inches. then  red card stock, four pieces cut to 4 1/4 inches by 6 1/4 inches. The journaling mats are cut to the following dimensions: red, 2 pieces of 3 1/2 inches by 4 1/4 inches and 2 pieces of white cardstock cut to 3 1/4 by 4 inches. I chose two packages of embellishments one from “Paper House” with some very cute assorted picnic 3D embellishments, and the other set is a “Jolee Boutique” set of flags stars and banners. Here are the two finished pages.


I like my layouts to be clean and crisp but you could easily add more layering with ribbons lace and stickers. I hope you enjoy the layouts.
