Creating Paper Crafts for your Athletes

For the next two weeks we will be featuring Designer’s Favorites – We asked each design team member to showcase their favorite Paper House Productions products in a project. Christine’s favorite product is all of our sports themed products.  She’s designed a new Baseball Pocket Page to share as well as sharing a bunch of her older projects!

Supplies Used:

As a former athlete and a mom to four kids, sports collections always strike a chord with me.  I love it when Paper House comes out with new sports products!  Over the years I have created A LOT of sports themed projects and here’s just some of them!  Check out our Sports Pinterest Board to see more from our talented Designers!

Batter Up!

Hey there Scrappy Friends!

Lisa  here today to share a sports layout I created. I take so many sports photos, have scrapped some and still have a ton left to scrap! So during baseball season this year, I had to stop myself from grabbing the camera to take to every game. Am I the only one like that? Or do you do it as well? I also decided to try and use a series of photos on my sports pages.

I used a series of 3 photos from my son batting during one game and came up with this fun page:

Batter up

Batter Up Layout Supplies:

Batter up close up 1

I used white cardstock for my background and added some watercolor to it. I also added some black mist spatters.

Batter up close up 2

I layered my photos side by side and added layers behind them with the fun sports themed papers. I also added some stitching. I fussy cut “Let’s Play Ball” from one of the Baseball Tags and popped it up using foam tape:

Batter up close up 3

I used the “Batter Up!” sticker and popped that up with foam tape as well. The baseball under it is also from the sticker sheet as well as the baseball border:

So dig out those photos that you have a lot of and scrap a series of 3 on your page!
Thanks for sharing your day with us at Paper House!

Play Ball Layout

 

Hello Paper House fans and followers! It’s Lee-Anne here today sharing a baseball layout of my youngest son when he played his first year of baseball a few years back.  Time sure does fly as he is now 16.

I used my antique sewing machine and stitched along the outside edge of the layout, the navy paper triangle, the circles and also the middle of the baseball stitched paper. I love the extra texture and homespun feel that stitching gives my layouts. This is totally optional.

I added lots of stickers to the layout and gave some of the stickers added dimension by using some foam adhesive squares on the heart sticker, the title “Play Ball” sticker and some of the baseball stickers.  I also added my son’s name with the mini alpha stickers on top of the heart sticker and also on bottom right corner on top of the ticket sticker.

Adding the star stickers directs the eye down the page to the title and photos.

IMG_2437

The banner sticker strip and the baseball sticker strip are tucked slightly under the 4X6 photo and the 2X3 photo so it doesn’t leave a rough edge. I also added the circle heart sticker to the left triangle on the 4X6 photo.

Finally I added a little “homeplate” sticker beside the small photo and wrote the year with a black pen.

I hope you are inspired to create a sports themed page using the Baseball Collection. Have a creative day!

Soccer Layout

Hello everyone! It’s Lee-Anne joining you today and I’m very excited to share with you my first design team project for Paper House Productions.

I love all the sports themed papers and thought I would create a layout of my youngest son Clayton when he was 5 years old and playing on his first soccer team.

Soccer Layout Supply List 

I began my layout with a 12X12 piece of white textured cardstock and added paper strips to the four edges.  I fussy cut 3 paper soccer balls and added them to the white cardstock. Isn’t the Soccer Ball paper adorable?

. PHMarch42016-2

For my 5X7 photo, I matted it`on the black and white dotted paper and added several cardstock stickers. I popped up some of the cardstock stickers with some dimensional foam squares give more dimension .

PHMarch42016-4

Finally I added some black, grey and yellow enamel dots to my page making sure to add them in the triangle design so that the eyes would view the entire design.

I hope you enjoyed my soccer layout.  It was so much fun to create with all the beautiful, high quality patterned papers and cardstock stickers.  I’m sure you will love to create with them too!

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.

Lets Play Ball

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.

Lets Play Ball close up 1

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!

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.

Two of my three sons have sports themed rooms so these collections are going to get some serious mileage for home decor in my house!
Field of Dreams Closeup
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???
