I really enjoyed using the Fanfare papers from Close to My Heart.  Maybe it was because they were different for me in the fact that there’s no pink, ha!  Funny thing is both girls wanted their pictures on these pages (they liked the blue).  With the red/white/blue theme they were perfect for the July Challenge at Scrap Our Stash.  The first thing I thought of when I saw these papers was Fourth of July but I didn’t use any of those types of pictures.  These are really great, versatile papers!

Here are the layouts that I created with the Fanfare Workshop Kit:

By switching out papers for the above layouts, I saved the papers below because I thought they’d make really quick and easy layouts.  As you can see I basically just matted my photo and added a few embellishments:

Cupcake Crafts 150: #29 – Include a number on your project.
Papertake Weekly Challenge:  Anything goes

Challenge: Allsorts Week 111 – Free & Easy

Next are the cards created with the Fanfare Workshop Kit:

These last cards I made with the scraps left over from the kit and a few embellishments from my stash:

Challenge: Paper Cutz – ice cream cone (stamped)

Supplies used: Close to My Heart Fanfare Workshop Kit, Close to My Heart Sparkles, Colorbok Glitter stickers (stars on Make a Wish layout), brads, Close To My Heart Cranberry Ribbon, Cricut.
