Another Softball Layout
Here's another softball layout I recently completed. This one is not based on any sketches or anything, it's completely original :)
Once again, the solid papers are Bazzill and the patterned papers are from a package of black and white patterns I picked up at Michael's.
The softball and bats are cut from the Sports Mania Cricut cartridge. Both papers are Coredinations. I inked the edges and pop dotted the softball.
The softball player is also cut from Sports Mania. I cut her shadow out in Coredinations paper that was black with a white core. I sanded the edges a little to make her stand out on my page.
I really love this embellishment. The TEAM ribbon slider is made out of a heavier metal and came in a pack of three more ribbon holders. It was attached to 2 more packages of ribbon slides, too. All three packs (12 sliders in all) for a total of 3.99! Not bad...I LOVE Tuesday Morning!
The softball word was cut from Sports Mania and the numbers are from Varsity. I ran the word through my Sizzix purse with a Cuttlebug swiss dots folder. I added the faux stitching on the numbers with a white gel pen.
This tag I made to slip behind her photo and holds the names of her teammates and coaches. I know from experience that, as we age, we forget things we think we'll never forget. I want her to be able to know and remember the people she grew up with. I just typed it up in a Word document and printed it directly onto the paper. This tag fits so perfectly behind my daughter's photograph.
Once again...thanks for looking!
