Born in the USA | Bramble Fox

Happy Independence Day!!!

I made this layout last month for Bramble Fox using several of their products, including the brand-new Spirit of America Perspextive pack, which includes two awesome title pieces. Please note that I scrap 8 x 8, so the products look a bit larger on my layouts.

I started out my layout with a free cut file from Paper Issues and backed it with various patterned papers from Pink Paislee's Sweet Freedom collection. I created fireworks in the background with the Fox Cut Stencil #27 using red and blue distress inks and a blending brush. After brushing the ink through the stencil, I rotated the stencil a bit and used a different color or the same color with a lighter touch.

I fussy-cut some designs out of a couple of patterned papers to use as embellishments and added star Perspextives from the Cool Stars pack.

I originally brushed some light blue ink behind the star cut file to make it stand out against the white paper but felt like it was still getting lost in the busy-ness of the fireworks, so I added a layer of navy blue and then used a fine-tipped pen to add further definition to the cut file.

How awesome is that two-tone title? To make the beautiful USA title stand out from the background, I traced around it on navy cardstock to add another layer.

I used the navy cardstock around the embellishments I fussy-cut to make them stand out. And the final details were some patriotic phrase stickers, some red enamel dots, and a heart Perspextive from the Monochrome Hearts pack on the buffalo (because I always put a heart on the layouts I give away).

Wishing you a wonderful 4th of July, and be sure to pick up some of these gorgeous products for those pictures you're going to take of your celebrations!
