TTT - Independence Day or Stars & Stripes


This fortnight we are honouring our fellow crafters across the pond, we want to see 

Independence Day or Stars & Stripes

on your projects.

If you do celebrate Independence Day we'd also love to hear any traditions you participate in - whether they are little family traditions passed down through the generations or more community wide traditions.
To be honest, not knowing many people who celebrate Independence Day myself, I'm a little bit nosey as to how you spend the day.

This fortnight we have some amazing sponsors again........

Prize offered to 1 lucky winner is 3 packs of die cuts.


One lucky Random winner will win 7 Digi images for their choice

This challenge we do not have a tutorial for you :(

However, we have something a little different and I'm sure you will all enjoy it just as much!

We want to focus on YOUR Top Tips for this challenge so here's what we want you to do....

  • Add a Top Tip (your own tutorial or written tip) to your blog.
  • In your post link back here, stating it's a Top Tip for TTT.
  • Add that post to our Mr Linky adding (TIP) after your name. 

  • Once you've added your Top Tip we want you to visit other TTT Top Tippers.

(They will have (TIP) after their name on Mr Linky)

  • Leave them a comment stating you are a Top Tip Collector (TTC) from TTT

At the end of the challenge we will pick x2 RANDOM TTC comments (from our Top Tippers' Blogs - NOT THIS BLOG) to win a small surprise gift each, even if you don't win you will have a huge array of Top Tips collected along the way!

Here's my Stars & Stripes offering....
