While keeping up on my paper addiction, I came across a new product line called Robin's Nest! And to my delight, they had an open call for their design team! So, I checked out their website and loved their products!
Here is a fourth of July page I made up with their paper and embellishments. I started with the back ground paper: Blue Stars on Red. I then cut a medallion using my SCAL 2 to look like a circle with patriotic bunting. I am sharing the svg HERE. To the medallion, I added some of the Robin's Nest Freedom Tear Drops.
I love the Robin's Nest Journalling Blocks! These two are is in the Glittering Blue Journalling Kit. I used one to mat my title, "Independence" Day, which is cut from Robin's Nest: America Words paper.
I also used the White Glitter Card stock, Silver Dot in my rectangle in the center, and their Canada Stripe Glitter card stock too! Finishing details are the Robin's Nest blue & silver glitter fireworks, I paper rosette, covered with a stamp by My Mind's Eye, Stella Rose: Gertie "Girly" Stamps, a button and more the Robin's Nest Tear Drops in Red!
For a fun pop of color and to reinforce the patriotic theme I added them to the journalling block. Silver letters are K & Co.
You can visit the Robin's Nest Blog here and see more of their items and be inspired. I also made a card to submit for the Gallery Star at Paper Crafts Magazine. It's my understanding that the submission for their contest may not be published elsewhere, so if you would like to see how I used my Robin's Nest paper you can see the photo in the Gallery Star Flicker Group Here. I used the Canada Stripe Robin's Nest Paper, Cricut Beyond Birthday's cartridge, and My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Flower Girl Stamp. To make my girl more patriotic, I punched the stars out with a paper punch and made her flower into a flag using the Cricut Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake banner. I colored the banner with the stripes and added the star with a scrap of paper and the same paper punch. I drew her hat to look like a sailor's hat and added the stripe detail like the stamp and the star.
