What Makes a Champion

Do you have a lot of pictures and don’t know how to include them on your layout?  Design Team Member Amy Wheeler did an outstanding job on this 2-page baseball layout.

Supplies

  • Teresa Collins – Sports Edition – Sports Defined paper
  • Teresa Collins – Sports Edition – Chipboard Charms
  • MLYB – Say What? Journaling Tablets – Sports
  • MLYB – Say What? Clear Cuts Sticker Words – Sports
  • Queen & Co. – Felt Fusion Border – Baseball
  • Black Cardstock (2 sheets)
  • Red Cardstock (scrap strips)
  • White cardstock (I used a precut 4×6 mat)
  • Notebook punch
  • White pen

Step-by-step directions:

  1. For this 2-page layout, start with two sheets of black cardstock
  2. I had 8 4×6 photos from this event that I wanted to use, so I started cropping them and arranging them into the best “rectangle” shape possible
  3. The length of the top row would determine the length of my interior “block”, I cut a scrap of the Teresa Collins – Sports Edition – Sports Defined paper to even out the lower row of pics on the left side of my layout (if needed I could have done this to the right side also)
  4. I chose to mat one photo – since I was using a precut 4×6 mat, I trimmed ¼” off two sides of my photo
  5. I pulled the “What Makes a Champion” card from MLYB – Say What? Journaling Tablets – Sports and did my journaling
  6. Next, I positioned the MLYB – Say What? Journaling Tablets – Sports where I wanted it on the layout, but did not adhere it yet
  7. To complete my “rectangle”, I needed to add a 2” strip to the bottom of my layout even with the matted 4×6 photo on my right hand page – I used red cardstock for this and even added a strip on the right hand side of my layout to even it out (it will show outside the tablet piece)
  8. I adhered Queen & Co. – Felt Fusion Border – Baseball across the red cardstock strip (*I had a piece of baseball hand over outside the red strip, so I backed that piece of felt with red cardstock to look like stitching – I just cut a scrap of red for this)
  9. Using a white pen, I drew a frame around the photos/papers making up the interior rectangle of my layout
  10. I adhered my “What makes a champion” journaling sheet after punching the top with a “notebook” punch
  11. I selected four pieces of chipboard from the Teresa Collins – Sports Edition – Chipboard Charms and adhered the “Play Hard or go home” to the left side of my layout while grouping a baseball and two stars above my journaling card
  12. For a finishing touch, I added the word “champion” from the MLYB – Say What? Clear Cuts Sticker Words – Sports to the photo on the upper left of my layout
