You are going to love these patriotic scrapbook ideas! Patriotic holidays have always been huge in my family. My Dad is a Veteran and retired from the Navy so there were always parades he marched in and assemblies to attend. After that, we always got together for a family cookout.

These patriotic scrapbook ideas would work for both Memorial Day or July 4th or any time you had a patriotic themed event or photographs that you wanted to scrapbook. When I went over my parents’ house for Memorial Day, both kids and their girlfriend / boyfriend were able to come as well. I took photographs with my iPhone of the kids, their dates, my parents and Marty and I all standing in the same place.  I decided coming up with a scrapbook page for these photos would be a great way to save these memories rather than just letting the photos sit on my phone forever.

Last month, I figured out how to get my phone to print to my Epson printer so now I can print all the photos I take with my phone instead of leaving them there and forgetting about them. This layout would work just as well with traditional photos.

I’m using the Stampin’ Up! Project Life Photo Pocket Pages to do all of my scrapbook projects. They let me use different sized photographs and they are super easy to create. It looks like I spend a lot more time creating them than I have to. You just slide the accessory cards and the photographs into the page slots and move them around until you like the layout. There is no messy glue and no paper to cut – unless you really want to.

The photos I printed out are 4″ x 6″, so this month, I used the 12×12 sheet with 4 of the large 4×6 slots. The cards I added were from the Stampin’ Up! Moments Like These Project Life Card Collection. Then I used the Project Life Day To Day Photopolymer Stamp Set to add the date.

Then I used some homemade page flags that I had made for my planner along with some sticky embellishments I got from the dollar store. I turned cards that weren’t officially intended to be patriotic in nature into ones that would work with what I had in mind. That’s what I love about Project Life by Stampin’ Up! It’s such a versatile way to preserve your photos.

  1. There was a time when my son was growing up that I just love to scrapbook.  But then it seemed like I had less and less time to do it until I finally just stopped altogether.  Now that he is grown and gone I think it would be a great time to go through my photos and make a few to pass on to him.  I love the idea of using the photo pocket pages.  What a time saver!!  Yours looks awesome and really has me inspired.
