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!


  1. Another awesome layout. I love how you journaled on the tag with the names. 25 years from now you probably wouldn't remember some of those names.

    P.S. Feel free to post about cards for Riley Philpott -- the more the merrier! Thanks so much for your kind words and for your willingness to make a card to put a smile on her face. God bless.

  2. That turned out awesome!! Love the colors and your little hidden tag!

  3. Traci, this LO is GREAT and I really love the little tag. Generally, all of my journaling is out in the open, but I really love this idea. Thanks so much for your comment on my LO on the board too (I'm Mamaloo). Your blog is one of my favorites so it was exciting to get a comment from you!
