Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July!! Be sure to take lots of photos as you are grilling out and enjoying the fireworks. You'll want to use those photos on some projects now that we've shared so many great ideas with you !The fun thing about using photos is that there are so many possibilities.

Let's start off with an adorable card by Miki. It's perfect for today!

Happy 4th card by Miki Benedict
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Pattern Paper: Keeping Memories Alive Dirty Laundry, Rusty Pickle
Digital Sanded Overlay (used on photo): Christine Smith -
Stamps: Paper Salon
Ink: Bazzill Basics
Punch: EK Success star
Twine: Stampin Up
Tool: Score-Pal

Here is another card created by Jessica. It uses a beautiful baby photo. The simplicity in the design makes this card so elegant and sweet at the same time. Jessica used a photo she received in a birth announcement and made the card for the parents to display in his nursery.

If you can print your photos at home, there are loads of possibilities for using them on craft projects. The nice thing is that you can print them out in a variety of sizes. Sherry printed out really small photos and used them in charms on this next amazing project.

Charms (Fun Expressions)

*I made this from fabric scraps I've had sitting around for years, an old frame that I painted, thread, and some buttons. I added photos in the charms. tfl :0)

As you can see, there are lots of ways to be using your photos. One resource that has tons of great ideas is Paper Crafting with Photos. If you don't have this issue, I highly recommend it.

Thanks for coming by this week and checking out our ideas. Be sure to link up any photo projects that you've created. We'd love to see them!
