Stars and Stripes collection.
The stars and the dot paper are sides of one sheet of paper so I was being super frugal and trying to stretch my scrappy supplies. The journaling sticker with the ribbon originally had a 4th of July on it. I added the heart sticker right on top to make it usable for Memorial Day. For the bottom card I cut down a grid card and then topped with the three star tab sticker.
I have been watching the Scrappy Jedi's Project Life videos at Two Peas and her discussion about balancing things on your layout really resonated with me. I could've left the top right picture unmounted but added the red to balance the red of the title in the bottom corner of the left side. It looked much more "done" after I made that little change and I've been trying to incorporate that into more of my layouts. I highly recommend watching a couple of her videos, I've been enjoying them immensely.
