Hey there! It’s Jen Schow here to share another scrapbook layout with you. It’s starting to feel like summer in my neck of the woods and that means barbeque’s, going to the pool, and all sorts of other summer activities. Independence Day is a holiday that’s full of fun family stuff and I wanted to document our first time going to the hot air balloon festival last year.

Foil is the perfect way to add a festive touch to a 4th of July layout, and I used it in a few different ways. Here are some of the products I used:

Project Instructions:

I created a very simple layout using a few cut files that I created as a free download! You can get them here.Freedom Thumbnail

Here’s a close look at the title I created with the cut file and some Deco Foil™ PeelnStick Toner sheets. Love those things!

I tried a new (to me) technique on this layout and thought I would share how easy it is. I wanted to bring a little extra shine to my photos, so I used a paintbrush and some Deco Foil™ Liquid Adhesive to add a little foil behind them.

I think it turned out really cool and I’ll definitely be trying that technique again. I created a little video tutorial on my process and you can watch it below.

Have you already tried getting a brushed foil look on your projects? If not, I hope this has inspired you to give it a try!
