Fourth of July Layout

Good morning crafty friends,

Today I am sharing one of the layouts that I recently created
as a kit. Yep, you heard right, I am producing kits again!!!

Be sure to sign up for my Newsletter. We will be sending those
out again Late-Friday, Early Saturday morning
(depending on your time zone..lol).

We will have subscriber only freebies and projects by our
designers as well as announcing the latest kits and premade pages!

Now that your 4th of July festivities have concluded, it is time to
get those photos printed and on to some pages! This kit is the
perfect project! Super fun and colorful but still created to allow
your photos and memories to take center stage!

Here is a closer look at the USA letters. Also, the red star patterned
paper is actually glittery…it just didn’t show in photo.
