I love this time of year- only for the festivities, certainly not the Florida heat! I have been spending the month celebrating the 4th through my crafts. One of my first projects was scrappin' 30 year old pictures using the Club Scrap American Flag kit. I used the bonus Page Formula layout and it was a perfect design for these vintage photos.
Another challenge was to create a card using Julie's technique for this month. Off to the Dollar Store to buy colors that I would never see on my nails! Here is my first attempt at the Nail Polish technique.
I created two cards with the different samples and I was pretty pleased with how they turned out. The first card is a shaker card and the background is the back of one of the above pieces. I haven't made a shaker card in a long time so this was a fun change.
The next card was featuring another technique panel. I tested out another panel with the embossing folder and decided it needed some bling. I swiped a silver ink pad across the raised design and added the extra bling from the kit. I love this card!
Sadly, I just ran out of time this month to finish another card I started so I hope to add it in a few days! I hope you are inspired. If not think about joining our Club Scrap group and get your mojo going!
