At the Bats Layout

“At the Bats” Layout by Amy Wheeler

Using a cardstock background is a great way to stretch your patterned paper supplies into a 2-page layout!

Supplies:
Best Creation – Baseball – Home Run Glitter Paper
Best Creation – Baseball – All Star Glitter Paper (2 sheets)
Best Creation – Baseball – Grand Slam Glitter Paper
Best Creation – Baseball – Team Tags Glitter Paper
Best Creation – Baseball Combo Stickers
Vanilla cardstock
White cardstock
assortment of alphabet stickers

 

 

Instructions:

  • Start with two sheets of vanilla/cream cardstock for your base pages.
  • Cut Best Creation – Baseball – Home Run Glitter Paperinto two pieces of 5-1/2″x11-1/2″, round upper outside corners and adhere to top of base pages, leaving 1/2″ border around the outside edges.
  • Next, cut two 6″x11-1/2″ pieces of Best Creation – Baseball – All Star Glitter Paper and adhere below baseball papers.
  • Cut baseball stitching design from Best Creation – Baseball – Grand Slam Glitter Paper and adhere just below where two patterned papers meet. (I cut off 1/4″ of each strip so the strips didn’t go to the outside edge of the layout.)
  • Next, cut 1″x11-3/4″ strips from Best Creation – Baseball – All Star Glitter Paper and adhere above stitching strip.
  • Above that strip, add 1/2″x11-3/4″ strips of Best Creation – Baseball – Grand Slam Glitter Paper.
  • On right hand page, adhere three 4×6 photos stacked along center line.
  • Just to the right of the photos, add 1/2″ strip of Best Creation – Baseball – Grand Slam Glitter Paper.
  • To right of photos, adhere matted 6×4 photo.
  • In lower right corner of 6×4 photo, add ball/glove accent hand cut from Best Creation – Baseball – Team Tags Glitter Paper. (I adhered with pop dots to add dimension.)
  • Cut “Baseball is Life” quote from Best Creation – Baseball – Team Tags Glitter Paper and add above matted photo as shown.
  • On left hand page, adhere 5×7 photo as shown.
  • Under 5×7, add either one 4×6 photo or two smaller photos matted on white cardstock. (I made a 2-photo collage that already had the white border preprinted.)
  • Overlapped lower left corner of 5×7 photo, adhere matted 3×3 photo.
  • Add title to left of 5×7 print.
  • Add date using stickers from Best Creation – Baseball Combo Stickers under matted photo on right hand page.

 

HAPPY SCRAPPIN’!
