I hope you guys are all enjoying a wonderful 4th of July! It's always been one of my favorite holidays so I feel privileged to be able to share a festive layout and video tutorial on Lori Whitlock's blog today using papers from Pebbles Let Freedom Ring collection.
As I state below in my video, I actually created this 8x8 layout for my Mother-in-law as part of her Christmas gift last year and saved it until now to share. The only trouble is I didn't know then that it would be my turn to share a tutorial so I've tried my best to pull from my project a few of my favorite tips and tricks that I'm hoping will manage to teach a few of you something new. ;)
I love layering my diecuts, embellishing them with rhinestones and stitching on them to create texture and add interest so I did a little bit of all these on my layout here.
To create my layout I used the following cutting files designed by Lori Whitlock:
Summer Fun Titles
Banner Flag Set
2 Borders (Silhouette Store only)
Dot Star (Silhouette Store only)
Without further ado, here is my feeble attempt at a tutorial... ;)
There you have it. Sorry it cut off there at the end. I couldn't figure out how to lengthen my goodbyes without doing it over again and I was getting sleepy. ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the rest of your Independence Day or if you're reading this the day after, I hope it was a good one! :)
