Happy Independence Day: Some of my Favorite Patriotic Blasts from the Past

Hallo, Friends!  Happy Independence Day!  I hope you are all ready to celebrate this anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of independence with friends and family.  Our family loves the 4th of July!  At the moment, I’m recovering from a mean little summer cold, so I don’t have my usual Make & Take Tuesday tutorial for you.  In lieu of that, I thought we’d enjoy some of my favorite patriotic blasts from the past.  So crank up the John Phillip Sousa tunes, and let’s get this party started.

Authentique Liberty Patriotic Banner

Independence Day is certainly a banner worthy holiday!  You can find this festive banner HERE.  I’ve also included tips and how-tos for making the banner.

Authentique Honor Patriotic Card

Do y’all miss Authentique paper as much as I do?  This image is one of my very favorite July 4th images.  You can take a peek at this card HERE.

God Bless America Patriotic Kit

This God Bless America Patriotic Kit is still one of my favorite creations for The Button Farm Club.  There’s a little bit of everything, from mini album, to exploding box, to cards and even a banner.  Take a peek..I think you’ll like what you see.

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness Shaker/Pop-Up Card

Authentique Liberty Pop Up Shaker Card by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design PHoto 01

Liberty was another beautiful patriotic collection from Authentique!  I remember being very excited when I figured out how to use my star die to make this shaker frame.

And I was even more excited when I figured out how to turn those die cut stars into a pop-up element inside the card.  What fun!

Liberty Waterfall Folio Tutorial

Just to make sure we provide you with a tutorial today, here’s the link to a wonderful waterfall folio.

While the family is enjoying our annual Independence Day picnic and fireworks display, I’ll be in my comfy chair, sipping tea and reading a book.  I hope to be able to record a video for Thursday, but if my voice is not co-operating by then, I’ll post another batch of projects from the archives for you.  I like to keep you inspired!

Wishing you all a safe, happy, and heartfelt celebration of America’s birthday!  God Bless the USA!

Cheerio,
