Summer is here, and the vibrant HOMETOWN USA collection is sure to help you document your memories regardless of the size and format of your choice.  Though, I keep 12x12 scrapbook layouts, my heart is in small format (traveler's notebooks and 6x8 albums) for my daily documenting.  So, when I saw the new Doodle  Cut die sets, the idea for this spreads came together,.

I love how these entries turned out using the die cut pieces along with embellishments from the collection.

First, I use the new Festive Florals Metal Die set to create my jar of flowers for my layout.   I used the the die and papers from the 6x6 paper pad, as well a papers from the Petite Prints 6x6 paper pads.   I wanted to create the frosted look of a glass, so I decided to back the jar die cut with vellum.

I complemented the rest of the layout with pieces from the collection, I made sure to add small clusters of Sprinkles to tie it all together.

For my next spread, I chose to work with the new Pocket Full O' Pride Metal Die for my spread.  This time, I used the dies to help me create a grid style design for my page.

I started by cutting all the pieces for my little pocket using the die and papers from the Hometown USA 6x6 paper pad, and cardstock.   I created 3 pockets, two of them are set on the right of the page.  Once the flowers were in place, I added a few pieces of ChitChat to help me tell the story.

I finished this spread by adding my photo atop the last pocket.  Then used Bits and Pieces and a few extra stickers to complete the spread.  I love how these turned out, and I hope they inspire your next project featuring HOMETOWN USA!
