Yankee Doodle Collection: FiloFax Fun with Jomelle Gomez

Hello Everyone! It's Jomelle here today sharing my 4th of July layouts in my A5 planner. Of course I chose my Finsbury FiloFax in Cherry. It matches beautifully with the Yankee Doodle Collection. 

I love it when I open my planner and I see many pretty embellishments. Here you can see I made the dashboard using one of the vellum and paired it with the stripes paper. 

I left a little space in my dashboard so I can add pictures during our 4th of July celebration this year. I usually use my Sprocket to print my pictures. It will fit in the space.

Planner Girl "Pocket Love" Pockets stuffed with many embellishments.

I wanted to show how gorgeous are the Vellums are in this collection. This picture doesn't do justice on how pretty they are. You can see how the stripes 12x12 cardstock looks really good behind the stars vellum. 

I made another dashboard and added the tag on the side. 

Here is my weekly layout for the first week in July. It also happens that we are celebrating 4th of July this week.

I wanted to make another page just for July 4th. I want to write notes and our plan for this day. I added stickers to make the page colorful.

How cute are these washi tapes and the bicycle paper clips?

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope I inspire you to create your 4th of July celebration in your planner. Have a nice day!

Yankee Doodle Collection: Celebrate America Layout with Tya

Hello Doodlebug friends! It's Tya and I am excited to share with you a layout I did using the adorable Yankee Doodle collection! I have to admit - the 4th of July is my favorite holiday! It probably has something to do with the warm weather, yummy food and best of all spending time with the people I love. Every year we get together in my aunt and uncles cul-de-sac and have a huge party with lots of good food, lots of visiting and we cap the night off with fireworks and sparklers for the kids. Here is my layout:
I just adored all of the patterns in this collection. I loved the vibrant blue color so I added a piece of pattern paper for my background. I cut a piece of stone grey gingham linen Petite Print down to put my photos on.  I then layered some red paisley paper and cut some strips from the border sheet and added those to the red paper. I mounted my photos on white cardstock and made them look like a Polaroid shape. I like doing this for a little variation. I did my journaling on white cardstock and cut it into a banner shape and mounted it on some blue jean gingham linen Petite Print paper. Here are some close ups of the embellishing I did:
To make the title I used some stickers from the Icon Sticker Sheet and the This and That sticker sheet. The viewmaster shape is from the Odd's and Ends as well as the firecracker. I mounted these to the layout with some glossy accents and foam tape.
Up in the top left corner  I made a little cluster of embellishments. I started by cutting a banner shape out of the July 4th paper from the 6x6 paper pad. I also cut a light blue firework pattern paper from the 6x6 pad. I glued a accetate firework from the Odds and Ends to the base and then glued the banners down. I popped the July 4th banner up with foam tape. I then added a flag and firecracker sticker from the Icon sticker sheet.
I then got quite a few different sized star die cuts from the Odds and Ends and glued them in the corners of the layout .I also added some star sprinkles to the layout. I added some word stickers and a cute little mouse to one of the photos. I finished the layout off with a blue bakers twine bow.

I had such a fun time making this layout and remember the fun time that we had that night. I hope I have inspired you to pick up this collection and record some of your favorite 4th of July memories. Thanks for stopping by today! Happy Crafting!

Yankee Doodle Collection: 4th of July Star Frame by Courtney Lee

So I have this frame and I change out the contents for the seasons and I just love it. I picked it up for like $1 at an Aaron Brothers on their ultimate reject sale table and I loved it! It sits on my entry table all year round.  :) Court from Court's Crafts here with this cute 4th of July home decor piece!

I really wanted to pack as many of these cute embellishments onto this star as possible. The mini icons made that so fun!

I started with the big pieces and then filled it in as I went. You can see the acrylic pieces from the awesome odds and ends and some of the awesome foiling details in this photo. :)

The shape sprinkles are always amazing. I put quite a few of those stars and hearts on here. I love how even the firework (top left) has a little foiled burst of flame at the back. Doodlebug's attention to detail is second to none.

Of course by now you should know how obsessed with cute clips I am. These bicycles with the baskets on the front - LOVE!!!!! So I just had to get one of those in my display as well.

Lastly, the star vellum was just too scrumptious to pass up so I made it the background. Did you see the awesome matte sprinkles scattered about? And the tiny dots are from the patriotic posies shape sprinkles. I used almost all of those little ones on this project.

Here it is again! I hope you make something cute for our nation's Independence Day!!!!
