Have you ever tried a different page size than you normally do and fall completely in love with it? That is what happened to me when I tried a new format to my memory keeping! I love these Travelers Notebook size pages (mine measure about 4 1/2 x 8 1/8 inches)! My scrapbooking time is limited in the summer with all the activities going on and so this quick and easy style is right up my alley! Today I have 2 of these spreads to show you highlighting some fun 4th of July memories using the new Hometown USA collection.

My first page is a pocket page that I divided  using my Fuse tool. I wanted my 4x4 inch photo to be in the center, and then I used my Fuse tool to make the 2 x 4 1/2 inch sections on the top and the bottom.

I filled my bottom little pocket with the Festive Firework Acetate. I then filled it with the super cute Land that I Love Shakers, the Silver ball Shakers and some glitter and tinsel from my stash. This makes for a interesting interactive element to my page. Look at all that sparkle and shine!

The next page I made into a pocket that holds more photos of our fun night watching fireworks. Along the top I layered some of the adorable firework and star die cuts from the Odds and Ends ephemera. I also added a tag from the Chit Chat and added the Uncle Sam die cut to the front. I love how he is just peeking up from behind the title of the page. I added some red, white and blue Doodle twine to the top of my tag for more festive fun!

My July 4th title is from the Chit Chat and it sits on top of my journaling block. More decorating was done with some Puffy Stickers.

My next spread is a fun one and my photo matched perfectly with the Patriotic Puppy Doodle Pop- so I had to use it !

A smattering of embellishments decorate this top section - lots of stickers, and ephemera from the Odds and Ends and Chit Chat were used.

The papers in this collection are so pretty as you can see on this page which also features my journaling. The silver is a great touch ! (Even if its a little hard to photograph :) )

I hope that these 2 festive spreads make you so excited for the upcoming 4th of July Holiday! It is my favorite holiday and I loved getting to work with this amazing collection! Also- I hope I have inspired you to try a different size of layout than you normally do, you may just fall in love with it like I did! Have the best day crafty friends, and we will see you next time!!
