Baseball Life layout By Stephanie Ackerman
I love collage papers. They are amazing with their assorted images and phrases. Sometimes, though, collaged papers can be very difficult to use. Here’s what I did for this baseball layout.
Flair Designs – Field of Dreams Paper
Flair Designs – Baseball Fever Paper
Flair Designs – Baseball Cardstock Stickers
Creative Impressions Brads
American Crafts Cardstock
Die cuts: ProvoCraft Cricut Expression, Sports Mania, Plantin
Use brown cardstock as the base.
Cut the collaged paper into various shapes. Larger pieces work best.
Realign the collaged paper pieces on the base, spreading the pieces about a ¼” apart. You may have to trim the pieces to get them to fit.
Lightly ink all edges, then adhere each piece to the base.
Using another patterned paper, create a mat for a 4×5 photo and a 5×7 photo. Ink edges.
Mat onto brown cardstock and adhere to the base.
Die cut the title and the dates from the Cricut Expression, using the Sports Mania and Plantin cartridges.
Add brad over the “i” in Life.
Using complimentary stickers, add photo corners, photo turns and phrase to the page.
Journal around the photos.
