Cubs- Layout-17

Since my oldest son played for the Cubs this spring, this month's challenge at Scrap Our Stash was perfect for scrapping his baseball photos!

I cut the strips of paper from scraps from his last baseball layout that I did, plus an old scrap of paper that was from a 4th of July collection. I machine stiched around the edges with some red thread. I used some Cuttlebug embossing folders to make the stars and then just fussy cut around the embossing. The title is cut from the Cricut cartridge, Sans Serif. I added some red staples, and some red and blue brads to finish the page.

This summer has been crazy busy for us, so I hope to catch up on some layouts My boys will be going back to school soon, so maybe I can get back to posting on a regular basis! I have alot of projects that I need to get started on! Happy crafting!

Birthday calendar/book.

Here is a project that I made for my friend Crystal. I made her a perpetual birthday calendar/book. I used some of my favorite paper, the BoBunny Petal Pushers line. I love this paper with all the wonderful colors. And since Crystal loves polka dots, I was able to use lots of the BoBunny dotted papers too. I also was able to use alot of my favorite embellishments on the pages too. Lots of beads, and an altered bottle cap, paperclip, and scrabble tile!

This book measures 4x9, so I could get three pages from each 12 x 12 sheet of paper. I used most of the scraps for the title pages. And what I had left over, I am using to make a badge holder album. Look for that post soon! Happy crafting!
