Hi everyone Jodi here today to share with you a layout I did using the Patriotic Parade Collection. Now being Canadian, it may surprise you on how much I LOVE this collection! It is not just for Americans, but can be used for everyday crafting projects, and even for Canada Day! My baby girl is born on Canada Day, and I simply love all the elements that this collection has! Here is the layout I created:
I used a picture from her first birthday and decided to play up the Canadian and birthday theme with this collection! I started by doing a lot of layering with the patterned paper and washi tape.
I then created the Canadian Flag by die cutting it with the lily white chevron sugar coated paper and the ladybug sugar coated cardstock.
red, white, blue star sprinkles
I finished off the layout by adding lots of stickers and twine from the this & that sticker sheet and the icon sticker sheet.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the versatility of this fun collection!

Hi Everyone, it's Kathy today with a couple of projects using the new Patriotic Parade. This is such a fun collection, perfect for all sorts of patriotic projects! First, I created a layout featuring my daughter at the Chatham, MA Fourth of July Parade back in 2004. This is such a fun parade...full of fire engines, bag pipes and ever some pirates! Everyone dresses up in their best red white and blue!
The balloons are from the Icon Stickers Sheet. I embellished them by stitching some strings using the Red, White & Blue Doodle Twine. The ADORABLE stars are from the new Red, White and Blue Star Sprinkles!
To complete the layout I created a small cluster using some Air Mail Washi tape, some Icon Stickers and a silver star from the new Star Sprinkles!
My second project is a fun little home décor piece. I made a frame and easel completely from paper using a 3-D cut file. I used it to frame a cute little flag made from some Doodlebug Washi, Star Sprinkles and Sequins.
