Let’s Play Ball

Happy Leap Year Day Paper House Fans!  Angel here today with my very first post!  I’m going to be showing you my love for fussy cutting. The second I opened the sports collection I knew I would be cutting out the patterns on these papers. I just could not wait to cut out those baseballs.

I had the look of the layout in my head and I had to use everything. As you can see I used the back as well as the front of the pattern papers listed in the supplies.

I fussy cut all the baseballs (and repurposed them into softballs) then layered them. I even tucked them on the sides of the layout in a cluster.. I also Fussy cut some of the images that were on the Pattern Paper called Baseball tags. They make such cute elements for your layouts. I also could not resist adding the cheers sticker as well from the new Discover-England Cardstock stickers. I love how it all comes together.

Now who’s ready to play ball?

This collection comes with an awesome color scheme and great patterns.  I love how bold it is and that it will work for any basketball player – young or old, male or female!  I layered one of the tags from the tags page over the hexagon paper.  I then added a few stickers and that was all it took!  Quick, simple, and effective!

Susie used a timeless style of scrapbooking to create this travel themed layout with blocking and matting throughout.  She covered a lot of a trip with one simple layout by including multiple pictures. It really helps the eye to focus on the pictures. She used a variety of papers from the kit and the cardstock stickers.  She also added in a Rub-On that is just perfect for the layout.

Field of Dreams Home Decor

Yesterday we shared a layout from Susie using some of our new sports papers.  Today we are going to share a wall hanging made by Christine using the exact same supplies!  
We love sports in our house – basketball, baseball, football, you name it! So I am very excited about all the new sports collections and love that there is a general one too! I made a wall hanging with some of the new sports pieces.

After painting my wood plaque I added the background green number patterned paper. I carefully surrounded that with some bakers twine in a coordinating blue. Then came in that fabulous blue houndstooth paper and the Field of Dreams paper for the top layer. I also cut out a word border and added that to the top. Lastly I added some circles and stars to add a little extra to the top! Can’t you just see the little slugger in your life loving something like this???

Basketball Layout

Aren’t the new sports collections fabulous!?! I have a son who is absolutely obsessed with basketball so I was especially drawn to that collection. Christine joining you today to share a layout that I made with that collection!

Basketball Layout Supplies Used
I was immediately drawn to two papers in this collection – the blue starburst and the overlapping basketballs. So of course I combined the two to create a layout! I fussy cut out a basketball and stuck that right in the middle of the starburst. It makes a bold, eye catching statement! If you look closely too you’ll notice my sons arm looks like it’s reaching out to the ball!

I tucked some stickers behind and in front of the picture of him. My style always includes using lots of words on layouts. The collection included plenty to choose from and I resisted the urge to use every single one!
