Hey crafty friends! Traci here and today, I have a super cute, patriotic mini album to share with you titled Happy July 4th!  I created this with the fantastic Hometown USA collection and it's a perfect spot to save your summer memories and 4th of July celebrations.

Happy July 4th Scrapbook Album by Artsy Albums

I started with a 6x8 inch striped binder and created a sweet little picnic scene on the front cover. I added silver foil card stock, two 12x12 pattern papers, lots of cute die cuts from the Odds & Ends, and the Happy July 4th banner sticker from the This & That sheet.

On the first page, I made a pocket with one of the 4x4 cards from the Blast of Blue paper. I tucked a few Odds & Ends die cut pieces into it and ... since these are white on the back, they make great journaling spots!

I also made that same Home Sweet Home 4x4 card a fun little flippie with space inside for 2 more photos.

Check out this colorful fold-out page. I just love all the holiday images on the border paper called Polka Dot Pride. On the right, I added a cute hot air balloon die cut and created another flippie with the flower side of the Picnic Plaid print. The round July sticker is from the This & That sticker sheet.

Here's a great page for a family photo. I used the Hometown USA print in the background, then embellished with die cut pieces. Doodlebug's attention to detail is amazing ... the girl's star headband, the metallic stars on the boy's hat, the tiny blue bird, and the polka dot wagon full of flags. Genius!

Isn't this pocket page cute with the general store die cut on the front?!  I love the old-fashion cola machine, the dog, and the wee little flower pot! 

I added two 3x4 cards (from the Summer Celebration print) to the pocket. I like to use these as photo mats and add extra pictures to the backsides. And the Main Street Floral in the back is another wonderful die cut.

Do you have some fun 4th of July plans? If so, you need this festive Hometown USA Collection. It's perfect for highlighting your photos, making cards, or any craft project! 

This DIY Happy July 4th Album Kit will be available in my Artsy Albums shop tomorrow (Friday) if you're looking for a more guided project. I hope you have a great day and have fun playing with this amazing Hometown USA Collection!
