Krazy Crafting Crew July Blog Hop

Welcome to the July edition of the Krazy Crafting Crew blog hop:  Summer Fun!  never heard of the Krazy Crafting Crew?  Well you can find out who we are by visiting us here.  If you have joined me from Jamie Lindstrom Designs you are headed in the right direction, if not you must surely start from the beginning with this month's hostess LissaMarie at

This is a two day hop and tomorrow will bring all new projects dedicated to having fun this summer.  For my project today I have made a two page scrapbook layout using piecings from Paper Piecings by Nikki.  My piecings are from the Independence Day set.  I have only used a few of the patterns that come with this totally adorable set, check the PPbN site out to see what the other patterns look like!

I used white glitter paper and blue metallic paper on this layout to give it that
shiny firework look

Here is a close up of the liberty hat with the bears. These bear patterns are also perfect
to use as "tear bears" with mulberry paper

the right page - I wrote the words "freedom" & "Liberty" on these adorable
chalk board clothespins and simply clipped them to the piecings
