Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Baseball Game Scrapbook Page

I try not to fall into a rut while working on scrapbook pages. I have been working on a page since the end of February. It has been a real challenge so there are times that I just had to walk away. Not too far away, I was still working on my granddaughter's scrapbook just a different two page spread. I try to keep the pages interesting by trying something a little different on each spread. I also made and joined a couple ATC swaps.

TIGER BASEBALL GAME


Left Page

Right Page

   Does this ever look like fun? Well it was fun making this two page spread. Since my printer can only make 8"X11" prints I made the large photo in two parts and then cut them into strips and mounted them to the baseball scrapbook paper. I love a challenge. I've been told that it keeps your mind young. I have my doubts, seems I'm turning into an absent minded old woman anyways. Then I double mounted my granddaughter's picture using the "Tiger's" team colors and dropped it into the bottom right corner.
   For the right page I printed photos in two sizes and double matted them and mounted them in place. The real challenge here was to make the layout more than photos placed into even but boring rolls. This took some time. Before printing a lot of pictures that wouldn't work I made a 12"X12" re-useable  template. That allowed me to cut scraps of paper into different sizes and move them around until I was satisfied with the way they looked on the page. Then I made the photos and printed my pictures. Then I placed them onto my page. This scrapbook paper was so interesting that I wanted to make sure that I enough background paper showed adding to the focal impact. Using my die cutting machine I made the cut out baseball trim and the date. It was finished and it was fun. Now it's time to make some ATC's before getting back to what is becoming my taking forever scrapbook spread.

Thanks for visiting.
Take Care
