Carolyn from GRANNY MA's CREATIVE BLOG created the above card using the heading from the PATRIOTIC SET.  She says:  "I decided to create a pop up card.  Remembering what I had watched on a Sandi Genovese video I decided to apply this to a card.  First, I basket weaved red and white strips and the way it came out was like the stripes on the Flag.  I glued the weaved square to a blue card stock to give it the 4th of July colors.  Placed "Celebrating the 4th" on the front of the weaved section along with more stars and a firecracker. 

Inside of the card, I cut out the two sets of stars that came with the set and attached one star to the pop out tab, and the other set to each side along with extra yellow stars.  Layered blue, red and white cards and placed on the bottom of inside for a message or signing.  Placed another firecracker on one edge and a yellow star on opposite.  Happy Summer every one...and see you next September."

Victoria from PAPER SQUIRREL  used the pinwheel star from The Creative Pointe's PATRIOTIC SET to create this festive banner.  She says:  "The best part of this project is that it's super quick since you're working with multiples of the same cut.  Some gingham ribbon and buttons dress things up a bit.  Visit my blog for all the details!"

Shelissa from SHELISSA'S CRAFT STUDIO used the flags from the PATRIOTIC SET to make her project.  She says:  "Creating this last project for this term I wanted to do something different. We just had a diversity food festival at my job and I created different flags and connected them with fishing wire. This was my inspiration for this project. I created miniature flags and connected them with fishing wire. Really simple project but I really like that you can create these flags of different countries and string them together."

Octavia from T's CORNER FOR SCRAPPIN' made a set of Artists Trading Cards from the PATRIOTIC SET.  She says:  "From the Patriotic Set I used The Statue  of Liberty to make ATC's.  The paper from an old Paris Hilton pack was perfect!  I glittered, embossed and blinged."

Cindy from THE CREATIVE POINTE created a picture using the LIBERTY BELL SVG.  She says:  "I started out with really bright paper but toned it down by distressing and using gold Perfect Pearls.  To get all the details, please click over to my blog".

Tina from TINA'S SCRAP CORNER  made this 2-page scrapbook layout using a few files from the PATRIOTIC SET set. She says:  "I created the layout from a sketch, I used the heading, the flag banner as a tip for the arrow and a couple of stars from the set.  This isn’t your typical 4th of July layout, but the cuts from the Patriotic set gives a 4th of July feel to the layout. To get all the details of the layout you’ll have stop by my blog."
