Good morning, Peas! Summer is in full swing and here in the states we'll be celebrating the 4th of July next week. Today we've pooled together some Garden Girl projects and helpful links to get you jumpstarted on all your patriotic projects!
Snap Happy by Lisa Truesdell
From Lisa, "...just another untraditional holiday page from me. ;) i seem to have a major aversion to using traditional colors for things like this. i really like the starburst MME paper, so i started with a bit of that - it had a very “firework-y” feel to me. i paired it with neutrals, a smidge of yellow and a pop of red."

Fourth of July by Jill Sprott
From Jill, "There are lots of ways of celebrating the Fourth of July. In our family, it usually involves a barbecue, a few games, and the hallowed American pastime of blowing stuff up in the driveway. I had a little fun with the journaling on this page, linking the antics of the kids to a few of their “rights” and “freedoms.”
I used the Jenni Bowlin Wren collection here, which may not scream “Fourth of July!” when you initially see it, but it really is an all-American collection. As I discovered while creating this page, it's actually perfect for Fourth of July layouts..." Continue to read more + see supplies.
July 4th Card Set by Kandis Smith
From Kandis, "I never really send out 4th of July cards, but my family lives so far away that I'm thinking about doing it this year. I started out with some paper from We Are Memory Keepers–I loved the 4th of July themed journaling tags. I also used some Maya Road kraft tags and doilies. Added in some bling and some star stickers. Simple but fun! :)" See supplies.
Independence Day by Jen Gallacher
From Jen, "I wanted to create a 4th of July layout from more than one collection. I kind of knew in my head some of the elements I wanted to incorporate: stars, flags, bling, banners. I shopped my stash from there and combined several collections for this final layout.
I love how the tape fills the empty space in the upper left corner. I cut one of the pages from the Heidi Swapp album. I layered two star stickers on top of one another. I create my own blue flag to match the Pebbles one I already owned. And I cut my title with my Silhouette machine.
It's a simple, layered layout about my darling niece whom I adore." See supplies.
July 4th by Amy Heller
Amy is issuing the weekly challenge this week, scraplift a Garden Girl! If you didn't see our post about it from last Saturday, you can read all about it and see her supplies here!
Thank You for Your Service by Julie Campbell
From Julie, "This is a card I made to say “thank you” to our service men & women (and military spouses as well.) I was super excited to discover that the Instagram frame from the exclusive Studio Calico stamp set perfectly framed the date die cut I had from My Mind's Eye. The “Somewhere” paper from Studio Calico's Abroad collection is lined with state text, making it a fun background for a patriotic card." See supplies.
