LAND THAT I LOVE 8.5 X11 LAYOUT | with Maryám

The new Land That I Love collection from Doodlebug Design is full of red, white, and blue elements, as well as different patriotic icons that were designed to document all of the 4th of July activities in the United States. But did you know that this collection can also be used to celebrate some other countries? I am from Chile and lucky for us, we share the same colors of the American flag, which means I can use this collection to document our own patriotic celebrations too. Isn't that fun?!

For today's layout, I wanted to document a photo from a typical dish of the Chilean cuisine (Empanadas) that my mom made a couple of years ago to celebrate Independence Day. After I printed my photo, I started by looking through the papers from the collection and I choose the "America the Beautiful" and cut a piece 3.5 x 11" inches from it. Next, I grabbed my Craft Pick Tool and punch some holes around some of the hearts of the paper to add some hand-stitching details.

Next, I decided that my layout need some more texture so I grabbed the Mini Pinwheels Craft Kit and build three cute pinwheels for my layout and added a little sprinkleTM in the center. Even though these pinwheels are not from the Land That I Love collection, they match perfectly well with the line and they also add a nice touch of dimension to the page.

To continue with the process, I started adhering everything down and also added some embellishments- mainly cardstock stickers and sprinkles- to complete my design. Lastly, For the title, I decided to use one of the banners from the Odd&EndsTM set which says- "Hooray for the red, white & blue".

Let's take a look at the finished layout!

That is it for today! I hope this layout has inspired you to think of creative and different ways to use patriotic collections.
