July 4th Layout- Stars and Stripes week 1

Welcome to another inspiring day of our Stars and Stripes week here on the Tombow USA blog. As we get closer to the most patriotic holiday here in the US I’ve been packing for out road trip to Mt. Rushmore. One of the most patriotic places in the US. I could not pass up doing some crafting for the holiday. A little bit of home decor has been made, a few cards to send out and the July 4th layout I am sharing with you today. Here is the layout I have to share with you.


Materials you’ll need from Tombow USA are:

Foam Tape

Foam Tabs

MONO Adhesive Permanent adhesive

MONO Twin Permanent Marker 

Patterned paper: Me and my BIG ideas

Cardstock: American Crafts

Star die cut: Silhouette


Paper trimmer

I started the page out from finishing another project. and couldn’t just toss the red and white polka dot star cut up paper. I immediately thought it was perfect for this July 4th layout. Here’s the beginning look at the page.


Next I added my photo. It was placed on some white cardstock. I then chose a 3×4 life card and placed it on the lower left of the photo. It is raised with Foam Tape.  The die cuts were too boring for my taste so I used the MONO Twin Permanent Marker to add some line art around the edges. I did the same to the title piece and journal spot. Here is a detailed shot of that.



If you haven’t checked out the blog this week go take a look.
