Hi everyone! Julie with you here today sharing a layout I made using the ‘Let Freedom Ring‘ collection along with stamps from My Sentiments Exactly. I really love this collection and the stamps I used worked perfectly with my page!
A few years ago, we visited the Ronald Reagan museum in Simi Valley, California.
In the museum, they have a real Air Force One airplane that you can walk through. It was pretty awesome walking through one!
I colored the butterfly stamps red and blue to match my papers and photo!
I used stamps from My Sentiments Exactly to decorate my page further, coloring in those pretty butterflies with patriotic colors.
Thanks for joining me today – be sure to check back tomorrow for one more project with stamps from My Sentiments Exactly!
Hello crafty friends, Melinda here with you today! I am sharing a fun layout I created with the Paper House Let Freedom Ring Paper Crafting Kit and some fun PenBlades! For the next couple weeks we’ll be pairing our Paper House products with PenBlades so be sure to check out all the fun!
I designed my template and cut it out of Kraft Cardstock. Once that was cut out, I used my pencil to draw on the opposite side of the paper the pattern.
I then used my pen blade to cut out the layer. The pen blade worked like a charm. I used a self-healing mat underneath and it glided right along with no trouble.
I then used my Xyron Adhesive to adhere the paper to the back side of the template.
Here is a closer view of the template I cut out of Kraft Cardstock. You can see the various layers of the patterned paper I used to follow along the bottom side of the template.
I used several of the cardstock stickers from the collection to adorn this banner.
I combined a couple of the cardstock stickers for some more visual interest.
This terrific cardstock sticker of the USA was also part of the collection. I used some of the alphabet stickers to write my nephew and nieces names.
Here is the FREE template I created that I am sharing with everyone. It is sized at approximately 8.25 x 8.25 so it can be printed on a regular printer and then used with the pen blades. I am sharing the PDF and JPG files!

Be sure to stop back by each day as the rest of the designers showcase some amazing projects they have created with their Pen Blades and Paper House Products!
Here’s a view of my completed card. It is a Double Gate Fold Card. This is a picture of it open and the picture in the upper right corner is the card closed.
This is the card closed. It has a belly band to help keep it closed. I created the card cut file and then used a piece of Blue cardstock and cut out the base with my Pazzles Die Cut Machine. The patterned paper is from the Let Freedom Ring Collection.
This close up shows some of the marvelous 3D stickers from the Dad Sticker set. They are the perfect combination.
Have a closer look at the DAD sticker. I like that it has a metallic backing for just a little pizzazz. The coffee cup is perfect!
This is the other side of stickers. All of the stickers are a part of the 3D Dad sticker set with the exception of the pizza. That is part of the Chicago 3D sticker set. I had to add it as my hubby is a huge pizza fan!
As I mentioned earlier I added belly band. I used a strip of patterned paper from the Let Freedom Ring Philadelphia set and layered it over a strip of blue cardstock. I added the sticker Father knows best for the perfect decorative touch.
I added the tie and the little heart to a white mat. My kids and I will share our sentiments on there. Be sure to stop back by and check out the other amazing projects by the talented ladies on the design team. Feel free to also come by my blog and visit me! Until the next time, have a wonderfully crafty day!
Hello friends, Katty here. Today I am sharing a layout using the Let Freedom Ring Washington DC Paper Crafting Kit. I am scrapping a few photos from a trip I took with a good friend of mine to Washington DC in 2011. This was our first time visiting DC. The pictures I am using were taken on the airplane as we were arriving. We had such a great weekend exploring the city and all of the museums.
I chose a large globe cut file from the Silhouette Studio and cut it out using one of the burgundy patterned papers from the kit. I backed the cut file with a chevron navy patterned paper. I placed it to the left of the page and used dimensional foam to raise it.
For my background, I used a mustard yellow patterned paper with a star pattern on it. I layered my three photos to the right of the globe, I printed them in black and white.
I added a few embellishments from the sticker sheet around my photos. I also scattered some of the stars around the page.
For my tittle, I used letter stickers from the sticker sheet as well. As a finishing touch I added some faux stitching around the cut file with a white jelly roll pen.
This was a fun page to create. This collection is perfect for capturing those DC memories.

Today we have two of our talented designers sharing projects. First up is Melinda with a beach scrapbook layout!
The Paradise Found collection includes a Florida kit, a Cruise kit, and a general Beach kit! That means they have just what you need to create the perfect Paradise themed page. I used the Florida kit for this sweet little girl layout. Combining the collection with the E-Z Runner made it quick to put things together.

Next up we have Traveler’s Notebook pages from Christine!
This was my first time doing a Traveler’s Notebook and I absolutely loved it! I’ll be using this for an upcoming family trip to Washington DC! The Let Freedom Ring collection was the perfect collection to get the job done! I’m going to share one of the three spreads I created here, and you can check out the other two in my video and on my blog.
Today we have a special treat for you! We have an old friend, Lisa Moen, visiting us today with some absolutely beautiful layouts using our new “Let Freedom Ring” collection.
Lisa made use of the Philadelphia part of this colleciton on this layout. She included fussy cutting from the cut apart pages as well as several of the cardstock stickers. Isn’t that wood grain background just perfect for her picture?!?
Her second layout makes use of those cut apart pages again as well as the cardstock stickers. She made great use of of borders by tucking things underneath them at the bottom. The machine stitching details throughout this layout really help add a one of a kind touch!
Thanks so much to Lisa for sharing these beautiful projects with us today!
Happy Weekend crafty friends! Christine back with you today and I’m delighted to be sharing a layout with one of my Paper House Production’s brand new collections “Let Freedom Ring.” I liked this collection as soon as I saw it so I knew I’d have fun creating with it. The colors are a little out of my normal comfort zone BUT stepping out of my comfort zone often results in projects that I really love. That is definitely true today – this is one of my favorites that I have created in months! I am working with the Boston part of this collection.
I have lots of details as to how this layout all came together in the process video – here it is for you!
Here’s a few close-ups of my layout.
I completely forgot to mention this in the video but I added in some baseball puffy stickers. Our day in Boston was mostly centered around Fenway Park – so these were the perfect addition to really personalize the layout further.
I love to do string art! And although it takes a good chunk of time, I am never disappointed with the results! I used a coordinating color with the collection and built off the star theme seen in my background paper.
The cardstock stickers in this collection have some really neat words in a script font that work great for titles or subtitles. I used this one in my top corner to add another little accent area to the layout.
This patriotic collection is available now in the store – be sure to swing by Paper House Productions and check it out!
I especially love the tag papers and cardstock stickers that are a part of the Let Freedom Ring collection. I combined a few of the tags with some of the card stock tickers to create an embellishment cluster that draws your eye to the photos. It also gave me a great place to journal about my photos.
Don’t be afraid to use stickers that aren’t part of the collection if they help tell the story of your photos. Here, I used a Sticky Pix Lips sticker. Even though they’re not patriotic, they go with my photo and even help draw attention to the subject of it.
Let Freedom Ring is a fantastic patriotic collection. It makes scrapping photos from occasions like the 4th of July super fun and easy! How will you use Let Freedom Ring?
