I made this word book using Cricut Design Studio and the Cricut Stand and Salute cartridge two summers ago and it remains one of my favorite, all-time, mini-albums I've ever created!
I used chipboard from cereal boxes and taped it to the mat using painter's tape to prevent slipping. I multi-cut it 3 times and used max pressure and depth and slow speed. The eagle and honor pages were tricky - that "n" and "r' are skinny!
This firecracker cut is one of my favorites! I used some glue and silver glitter to mimic the sparkle.
Below is the book with all the inner pages. The paper is from Reminisce and Coredinations.
Note the Liberty cut on the left hand side.
"Stars and Stripes" is on the left.
American Pride holds a pocket full of tags. On the right, I used the picture feature key (see below):
This star with the USA inside was funky and I loved the hat border for the photo flap on the right!
Above is the inside of the photo flap - another firecracker and some stars.

This would be a fun project to get working on for your July 4th celebration this year. And to make that easier, I have files available.

Also, Melanie and I will be attending the Great American Scrapbook Convention tomorrow, Thursday, June 2 at the Arlington, Texas Convention Center. We are hoping to meet up with fellow Cricut lovers at noon across from the ticket booth and then we can grab some lunch. We would love for you to join us - hope to see you there!
