Go Big Layout

Go Big Kev layout by Amy Wheeler
The SEI “I’m An Athlete” line had the BEST baseball themed paper for the perfect layout of my little all-star. I used the line to document Kevin’s first attempt as pitcher in Minor League (a.k.a. “kid pitch”).
**I used Allison Davis’ one-page sketch for July from www.SketchSupport.com.**
  1. Start with sheet of SEI – Fastball Paper (baseball) for the base of your layout.
  2. Trim sheet of Bazzill Smoothies Cardstock – Date Swirl down to 11-1/2″ square, round corners and adhere on top of base.
  3. Cut two 3×6 and one 2-3/4 x 5-3/4 sections of paper from SEI – Fastball Paper (baseball).
  4. Cut one 3×6 and two 2-3/4 x 5-3/4 sections of paper from SEI – Diamond Paper (fence).
  5. Round corners of all six pieces and layer into three sections.
  6. Arrange layered pieces alternating in color as shown.
  7. Top layered pieces with three photos trimmed 2×2 (2 photos) and 3-1/2 x 2-1/2 as shown.
  8. Add title above photos using assortment of alphas.
  9. Use scrap strips from Bazzill Smoothies Cardstock – Date Swirl to make journal strips.
  10. Outline journal strips and adhere in upper left corner of patterned paper sections and in lower right corner.
  11. Cut star shape from SEI – Fastball Paper, using blue b-side and adhere in lower left corner of patterned paper section. (Before adhering, I hand stitched a border around the edge of the star.)
  12. Top star with die cut “go team” pennant from SEI – I’m an Athlete Die-cut Accents .
  13. Using Creative Impressions – Round Brads – Silver, form a swirly design coming out of bottom of star.
  14. Add baseball from SEI – I’m an Athlete Foam Stickers to edge of pennant over star.
  15. Accent page as shown with yellow stars from SEI – I’m an Athlete Foam Stickers.
**Note: I used the star shape on the packaging for SEI – I’m an Athlete Die-cut Accents for the template to draw/cut my star shape.
