Stars and Stripes Forever!

For beautiful, for spacious skies for amber waves of grain

Oh say can you see by the dawn's early light

I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free and I won't forget the men who died and gave that right to me and I'd proudly stand up next to you and defend her still today 'cause there ain't no doubt I love this land God Bless the U.S.A.

Go ahead, you can sing along, I know you want to ... and it's safe, no one here is going to judge your singing! Just about every American is familiar with these patriotic lyrics and around the 4th of July they seem to hold a special meaning very near and dear to our hearts. We're proud to be an American company and hope that you enjoy our new collection of Patriotic products as much as we've enjoyed creating them for you!
Let's start with a fantastic Fireworks border, you're going to love it!Fireworks Border #401

Or how about these great Fireworks, in 3 different designs!
The first is our latest, July 4th Fireworks #15009C featuring all glitter papers.
The middle is a bit larger, our July 4th Die Cut #400 measures 4" x 5 1/2" and is great for a page title. Lastly our Fireworks #1 is a great combo of patriotic red, white and blue with just a touch of sparkle in the center!

It's easy to add sparkle to an invitation to a backyard B-B-Q or maybe to a layout celebrating all the fun your family has each year on the 4th...simply add one of two of our great new July 4th Words #15009 in sparkling red, white, blue and silver!

Don't forget these sparkling beauties either...

Of course I couldn't make up my mind and had to combine some of my favorites to complete a quick layout of my family on the 4th of July on a summer trip to Washington state.
I rarely use "white space' on my layouts, but with such a bold red and blue, combined with the sparkling glittered papers the white cardstock background seems to work. Sorry about the crooked scan, but look how surprised they are at how high this firework went...what a great moment to capture!

For a dramatic embellishment try combining a couple products! Here I layered the title July 4th on top of the Fireworks Border for a quick attention getter!

Play safe this 4th of July and have a wonderful time with your friends and family; I'll be watching the F-16 flyover and singing along as they play
God Bless the
