Welcome to Thankful Thursday's Red, White and Blue Design Team Posts!
One would expect a 4th of July layout or craft, right???? Well, I'm thinking outside the box, once again, and I scrapped a set of pictures from our visit to see Santa. (Yes, we're celebrating Christmas in July on my blog, or so it seems!)
Here's my completed 2 page, 12x12 layout!
I used a great patterned paper (maker/name unknown!) that is silvery blue with white swirls and red, white and blue dots.
I matted a border of photos in silvery blue and then matted again with just a thin strip of red showing on the right (for the left border)! I then matted the professional Santa picture with a wide red and skinny blue mat. I cut the "Santa" title using Opposites Attract. It's my newest Cricut Cartridge and I love it! I added a few crystals to the title for a little sparkle.
I then created a photo block for the right hand page and matted the photos onto a large piece of silvery blue. I then double matted in red. I used Queen & Co's Shaped Bling Swirl Red Heart to add a little something to the photo block. I then used little crystals in red and clear to stick on top of every red and clear dot on the background paper. I purchased these crystals in the Dollar Bin at Michael's and I love them because they already have adhesive on them!
In the end, a fun red, white and blue layout showing that you can "break the rules" and still follow them at the same time! Hee hee!
