Nothing says summer quite like festive red, white, and blue decor. The 4th of July is quickly approaching which means plenty of decorating, entertaining, and memory keeping opportunities are coming our way! The beauty of decorating for the 4th of July is that your decor can be kept up throughout the summer months. If you are entertaining outdoors, pull those centerpieces in after your party and use them as decor throughout your home or send them home with guests as favors. many of these DIY projects can be created with items you probably already have on hand. Paper straws and cupcake liners are most likely in your kitchen drawers and what paper crafter doesn’t have a stash of solid color cardstock in red, white, and blue. Are you super short on time? You are in luck as several of these projects contain links to free printable which means you can wait until the last minute and still pull off the perfect party!

What is your favorite thing about the 4th?
I started scrapping in 2006 and was quickly addicted!I was an avid scrapper until late summer of 2010 when we started our adoption journey, at that point I was overwhelmed with paperwork (and emotions!) and I had to put something on the back burner in my life but I knew I would eventually come back to it.
We welcomed our daughter home from China in December of 2011 and a few months later I found my groove again and pulled out all of those supplies that had been tucked away.
I started out scrapping again doing traditional layouts, but at the beginning of this year I jumped into Project Life and I love it!
When I’m not scrapping I am usually spending time with our daughters which means library time, going on walks, thrifting (they love it as much as I do!) or watching Kung Fu Panda for the millionth time.I also have an Etsy shop Panda Eight Designs where I sell scrapbooking flair that I design.
