I have a couple of projects to share with you today using the 4th of July Project Pantry Kit. The Fourth of July is always celebrated at my house. You can sit at the end of my driveway and watch the fireworks from the near by park and not fight the crowds! I love to decorate for the day and this is my new project to add to this year's decorate. 

I used the new Yankee Doodle Homestead Stamp Set to create my scene. This is Doug's Applegates' sixth adorable abode, and idea that was concepted by Jami Sibley. I started with a frame from my stash and distressed the wood with a little sanding and Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.


I colored the house with Copics and cut it out. I stamped the fireworks in white ink and added glitter pen and rhinestones. My papers including the title at the top are from the 4th of July Project Pantry. I added a fence with the Picket Fence Die and a star border with the Reach for the Stars border.


My second project is a scrapbook page from Fourth of July last year. I used four squares of paper from  the July 4th Project Pantry and stitched around the edges.


I stamped the God Bless America stamp on kraft paper from the kit and added rhinestones.


I am excited about the new Tall and Skinny Alpha Dies coming out this month, perfect for card making and scrapping! I add the word July and a chipboard number.






Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to stop by all the designers blogs today for lots more inspiration!  I will be back tomorrow with another sneak peek!

  6. Melody, I love that you used the stamps to make a home decor piece and a scrapbook page! I just commented to Karen that the house is just like a farmhouse my BFF's grandparents had that was recently taken down -- I can definitely do a page for her and frame it!
