Patriotic Summer Blog Hop Stop #5 Scrapbook Layout with Creative Memories Brave & Star-Spangled Paper Pack

πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡Happy Fourth of July πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡
and welcome to stop #5 of our Summer Blog Hop.

The 4th stands for our Freedom and I thought what a great way to share my appreciation for our country being the home of the "free" because of the brave! 

My family and I went to the World War II museum in New Orleans and got to hear the stories of BRAVE soldiers who lost their lives for our freedom. We also met with Navajo Code Talkers from the war and heard of their survival stories in the War. The museum is a must see if you are in the area. We could have easily spent 2 days in there.

For this layout, you'll need the following products that you can find on my website
Star-Spangled Paper Pack
Brave Paper Pack
Cranberry Solid 12x12 Cardstock 
Original Border Maker System
Chevron Border Maker Cartridge
Scallop Dot Border Maker Cartridge
12" Straight trimmer
Creative Memories Scissors
White 12x12 plain pages
Tape Runner
Foam Squares

Using the Star patterned paper, with blue fireworks on reverse side, from the Star-Spangled Paper Pack, take a 12" Straight trimmer make a cut at 2", then another cut at 2", and then two cuts at 5/8". These will be the pieces you will use for the borders at left and right side. 

Using the Original Border Maker System and Cranberry Solid 12x12 Cardstock, punch out two borders with the Scallop Dot Border Maker Cartridge and one border with the Chevron Border Maker Cartridge.

Using the white 12x12 plain pages for your base or you could use a white card stock, take the one 2" strip and attach stars side up with tape runner to left side of page. Attach the scallop border butt up to 2" border, then attach the 5/8" blue strip on the top. Use your scissors and cut out 14 red stars from the remaining paper. Mount 5 blue stars with foam squares on the red stars of each side, like pictured. Use the other 4 stars on layout. Repeat to mimic on the right side.

From the Brave paper pack there is a blue sheet with the words BRAVE, HONOR, PROUD TO, and PROTECT on one side and with the green on other side with tanks, ships, planes and helicopters. Using your scissors cut out words.  I used personal trimmer to trim them up to be straighter. The word BRAVE I cut each letter out individually. Then using scissors cut out planes and ship.  Use foam squares to make jets pop off page. 

Use your scissors to trim the Chevron Border to make a flag-like border. Leave the two rows (reminding me of military stripes) and mount behind the letters of BRAVE.  The red and blue lines where drawn on page to look like a ribbon, the multi-tip pens are included in the "Pens & Pouch".

There is another great piece of paper in the Star-Spangled Paper Pack that has a collection of words and sayings.  This is where the "Made In The U.S.A." and the heart are from.  Using your scissors trim out the heart and attach it to a piece of blue. The sample is 3"x 31/2" to match the size of photo trimmed next to it. I hope this post inspired you to create a spectacular layout for your Patriotic photos.πŸŽ†πŸŽ‡
