Hello ~ welcome to the very FIRST My Creative Time ~ Scrappy Monday! Today Emma and the design team will be featuring a new segment showcasing "LAYOUTS" You are welcome to make ANY size layout of your choice! It can range from 6x6 up to 12x12. There is a sketch provided to help you along! You have until Sunday, May 13th to link your LAYOUT to Mr. Linky. I just LOVE this idea! I have not done a layout for so long! it felt really good to have a page completed. Thank You Miss Emma!
So for my layout I have decided to go against what I normally do! I am usually a chronological order scrapper! But for today I wanted to step out and be in the moment. So in the moment for our family right now is Baseball ~ okay Tee Ball! This is our son's first year and we are sooo excited! Unfortunately we have only had I practice and 1 day of skill training. The weather has NOT been friendly! We maybe taking our games into July at this rate! So if you were wondering why there is no pictures for my layout ~ that is why! I will add them and re post at a later time. Also you may notice my layout has a great deal of black in it. Well around here our Tee Ball Teams go by colors and not names. I guess the little ones can remember colors better than names???? So we are Team BLACK!
So onto my layout! Emma has the most incredible sports related stamps! These stamps are just PERFECT for a layouts! I took a paper with a baseball printed on it and adhered it to a plain black piece of paper. To make it more sturdy! I then used the stamp set "Grand Slam" and heat embossed some sentiments and images ~ to make my own background paper. I also made little baseballs from this set so I could add them to my baseball bats ~ for some character. I placed ribbon on the top and bottom of that paper ~ to add some little details. I also like to layer ~ so where my son's picture and baseball card will go I used some baseball paper as well. I used the Scallop & Stitched Circle Die for the little ribbon! My baseball in the center of the ribbon is from the Grand Slam stamp set. The little journal tag is the Embossed Gift Card Holder ~ layered. I use the circles from the Build A Banner Kit. The numbers are from the Follow Your Dreams stamp set. I am so excited to have at least one more page done for my son!
