We've got spirit, yes we do!

This is the last of my cheerleading layouts...this one, the "formal" shot I took of Jillian in the early fall.  This is for the first page of her Cheer Album, so no journaling on this one, just lots of SSM papers! A mix of Gymnastics (blue stars) Tennis (yellow stripes) and Cheer papers made for a quick and easy layout.  I added some "confetti" from the tennis papers for a fun look, too.  

This is my final post for Scrappin Sports, and I want to take this opportunity to thank the entire team here for a wonderful term! I've really enjoyed working with everyone and these great products!

First NFL game

Today my post is featuring my son Alex's first NFL football game.  He was lucky enough to get to see his Dallas Cowboys beat the Carolina Panthers earlier this year.  It was an amazing day for both Alex and Mark.  I found this sketch posted on Pinterest and knew it would be perfect for this layout. 

Here is the layout I came up with using the sketch.

The Cowboys paper was a custom paper that I had made a couple of years ago and was just waiting for the perfect layout to use it on.  

Have a wonderful week!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Today in the US, we celebrate a day of thanks. Given that this is my last post for Scrappin Sports  More, I find it fitting that I give thanks to the many wonderful people that have made designing for this team an absolute pleasure. I know that I have made friendships that will continue long past this team and for that I am grateful!

I was looking back at all the projects I have created over the years and I thought I would highlight a few of my favorites...

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Lily played her last game with her travel team, Red Thunder, two weeks ago.  She has played with the same team for the last five years, U10-U14.  While they have elluding the coveted state title, they can count on one teammate's hand how many in-season games they have lost and they have made it to state playoffs the last few years

As we pulled into Coach Christina's driveway for the end-of-season dinner we saw a lawn of crosses. Coach's family created a graveyard scene which also included fog and bagpipe music.  On each cross was the year, name of each team they beat, and the score of the game. It was an impressive 78 crosses A.K.A. wins on their lawn!

Football Play Off Time!

During the first grade, my son's football team started a tradition of getting mohawks when they made it to the play offs!  This year my son decided to go all out by adding his number and his team's W logo - I thought it turned out pretty cool!

I added some of SSM's backside patterns in my son's football team colors - black & red and I included a star for each year my son has played football and each year they made it to the play offs - so far six for six! :)

I Got This!

(Close Up Included) 

by Lynette Daniel, Owner of Scrap That Moment

Miss Hannah Gebhart was so serious playing Princeton Youth Soccer defense this year! She was a blast to shoot. Maybe she tried a little harder knowing I was on the sidelines just for her. ;) I loved this tongue in cheek picture it shows her determination and playfulness all wrapped up in one darling little girl. I was inspired to try something totally unique with the soccer paper, the idea was to get a mixed media look by using watercolors and paints. The trick was blending all the layers together with a chevron design. I mitered the "frame" corners to continue the motion of the page. I hand drew the title which I tried to mimmick a font called "Bring The Noize" that seems to have an attitude to match. Thanks for looking and appreciate your comments!

With the fast-paced world we live in, it is often hard to just stop and be grateful for all that we have. It is even harder, it seems, to take the time to let others in our lives know how much we appreciate them. In this world of social media, our fingers are constantly typing away, but as paper crafters, we know we can whip up a card in a matter of minutes. I challenge you, in this month where we celebrate Thanksgiving, to go a step further. Put that card in an envelope, stick a stamp on it and send it to someone you care about!!

Here is an example of one that I recently did...

Gym Fun!

My girls are not gymnasts, not by any stretch of the imagination, but several years ago, my youngest was able to enjoy a birthday party that was held at a local children's gym.  She absolutely loved flying on the trapeeze...and did it over and over again!

I used my new Silhouette Cameo on this page to cut the balloons and the title.  The Scrappin Sports papers worked SO well in the cutter!  I can definitely see myself using it over and over again with these papers!

Football MVP

During a 2-week pre-season football camp my son received a certificate of recognition from the coaches at the camp - he was beyond thrilled to be honored and we are beyond proud!

His award was for "COACHES AWARD FOR RESPECT TOUGHNESS".   He has always played extremely tough so it was great he was recognized for it and hopefully it encourages him to keep playing tough!

I know I have said it before but I really love how easy it is to mix and match all of the Scrappin' Sports & More papers.  On this layout I used 6 different papers and 1 set of cardstock stickers.  I love the look of the chevron with the stars and the colors were perfectly matched to my daughters soccer colors. 

I have done so many soccer layouts over the past 12 years and I love how Scrappin' Sports & More papers keeps them looking fresh and new!

Here is what I came up with....

Altered Antique Clock

One of my best friends, Tina Gebhart is a GREAT mom. She works all day then comes home to 4 kids and all their activities and she still finds time to coach her daughter's city league soccer team. She's been my bleacher buddy at our son's football games for the past 4 seasons. For Tina's birthday, I wanted to make her something different. The area that we live (Princeton, IL) in is known for antiques and flea markets. I picked up this wood mantel clock that had seen better days. I call this piece "Time with Hannah." I did a photo shoot of her daughter a couple weeks ago and got a darling shot of her playing goalie looking down field waiting for the ball to dare to come near her. I used the Sports & Activities Soccer paper line on the front face and designed "grass" out of cardstock. I love using scrapbook papers for home decor and I especially liked spoiling Tina by capturing a memory of her little angel in "time." Thanks for your comments, I really do appreciate your feedback.

All my best, Lynette Daniel

How many of your children think that Halloween is all about the costumes and not about the candy?  My Lily is all about the costume each year.  She has always had a strong opinion on what she wants to be on Halloween.  We have taken my prom gowns and made her a devil & Glinda, we have taken tulle and made her a cool vamipress skirt.  Last year she decided she wanted to be two different things!  This hectic Mom thought she was crazy since the first costume she decided on was Glinda As you can see in the picture below I had to primp up an 1980's prom gown, make a wand from wood, and the grown from mesh wire & duct tape.  Where was I fitting in time for her to be a Ninja, too?  

Well, she made the costume on her own.  Raided her own wardrobe (suspenders, too) and went digging in the ski bag for for the ski hat and under armour shirt so she could go all NINJA!  Pretty ingenious if you ask me!

The backsides of the papers in the "Sports and Activities" line are pretty fantastic!  I was able to pull out what I consider "Halloween" colored patterned papers and use them for this layout.   I distressed the  papers, including the banner, with my scissors.

I also added some Helmar ZapDots to the banner to give it some height.  Such little touches add depth to layouts.

Happy Halloween...a little early

We decided it would be fun to create something with either a fall or Halloween theme.  I found this cute little tray at Michael's and decided it would make the perfect place for a mini-page decoration.  The inside of the tray is 12 by 4.5 making it the perfect size for a mini-page.    It was already decorated with the rhinestones, again making it the perfect backdrop for my page.  Here is what I came up with....

The side B patterns were perfect for creating this Halloween layout.  I just love the black chevron pattern on the back of the Volleyball paper and the orange & black stripes of the Basketball papers.  It just screams Halloween to me.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Atta Boy!

Asst. Coach Kevin Staton of Princeton Youth Football gives Zach Daniel an big Atta Boy! for catching a tough long pass against defenders and running it into the end zone. This proud mom wanted to thank each volunteer coach with a nice "cover page" to their custom PYFL albums I made. They have been uplifting, tough, and pushing my kid to be a rock star this season. 

In the layout below, I (Lynette) decorated "tags" of the new "Sports & Activities" paper and embellished with May Arts chocolate silk ribbons. Special effects are made with metallic watercolors, chalks, and an opaque white marker to create what I call a "comfortable but formal grunge" style.   

Thanks for looking, and appreciate any comments!

Life Is Like A Golf Swing

Hey it's Lynette, and it's double treat Tuesday! Where I load up TWO Scrappin' Sports & More projects! One that was displayed in my retail store never seen here AND another exciting fresh brand new one! 

Below is a golf layout I made for SSnM's Design Team tryouts that was never shown on SSnM's Blog. It's a very simple layout that only used a few strips of textured cardstock to frame out the beautiful photo I took of Jessica Headley. I spent the most time hand drawing and painting the flourish across the photo and the "Name of the Game" paper. If you love my unique quote I wrote and would like to use it, please give me credit. :)

He's a Black Belt!

My son, Logan, worked very hard to earn his first degree black belt. With years of training several days a week, he finally got it. We were very proud of him. Luckily, everyone was pretty happy they got their belts so we could get a group picture of all the graduates!! And it was pretty handy that Scrappin Sports & More just released new Karate paper!!

Take martial arts classes? The other side of the paper is dedicated to Tae Kwon Do!!

Are you scared?

Does the thought of using sports themed papers for a Halloween layout scare you?  Do you shake in your boots at the idea of making "something" work?  Well fear no more, my friends!  I created this adorable Halloween layout using three of our papers and you can too!! I started with some fun photos I took last Halloween in our front graveyard-errr..yard...under our big tree...these children are my youngest daughter and her best friend all ready to go trick or treating.  My daughter was a little freaked out about her friend's Werewolf costume, I just love how the photos turned out with the Hipstamatic app.

The chevron background of my layout is the "B" side of the new Sports and Activities Volleyball paper and I used the School is Cool Second Grade paper for the orange stars.  My bats are from the School is Cool Freshman paper (a black on black polka dot)...I added my own chipboard tree (misted with the new Heidi Swapp color mists) and my little quote card that says "clothes make a statement- costumes tell a story".  I 
stamped the Oct 31 on cardstock and created a little accent with a circle of the Second Grade Paper and some more bats...and there you have it!  A great Halloween page with sports themed papers- who would have thought it!!

Sportsmanship layout

I love to catch my son in acts of kindness during his games - here I snapped a photo of my son assisting the referee fix an athlete's equipment on the opposing team.   I worked one of my favorite quotes into my journaling "sports do not build character, they reveal it" and I am proud of my son's character!

Which Sport?

Last week I created "What Sport Will You Play?" during my Helmar Live Ustream class.
I made sure it was full of the great sports papers from the "Title Sports" line. 

My grandson, Chase, is going to be an athlete!  He has a natural attraction to any sports ball and running.  It just makes me wonder what sports he will play when he is old enough to make a choice. 
My bets are on soccer and baseball!

Football paper (#1372)
Baseball paper (#1367)
Soccer paper ((#1379)
Hockey paper (#1375)
Golf paper (#1373)

Basketball (#5550)

10 Years of Football

Happy Monday everyone!!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I am so excited to share this post with you today.  I had so much fun looking back at the past 10 years and remembering all the fun I have had watching Alex play football.  It all started when he was 4 years old and got his first Dallas Cowboys outfit.  I just love that photo of him all geared up on Christmas. 

This is the first 2 page spread I have done in awhile and I am really excited about it.  I just love how all the Scrappin' Sports & More papers work together.  I used two lines of the football papers and combined it with some of the side B papers from other lines to add some color.  A few buttons, chipboard letters, stickers and twine and the layout came together better than I envisioned.  I hope you like it!

Here is the two page spread.

And here are the pages separate so you can see more of the details.

Hey, it's Lynette Daniel saying TGIF! to our Scrappin' Sports & More Bloggers! I'm sharing my brand new layout of St. Bede Academy's own Cross Country star Leo Lopez. Go Bruins! I took some perfect fall photos of Leo and used the glorious green tones in the (Girls' Rule) Golf! papers to match SBA's school colorsI used the backside for the outside border and the right side green & white "stripes" for the flag strips of journaling of his score/rank.  I streaked the Kraft cardstock with green paint and gave it a flow~ but cool masculine grunge look and topped it with a die cut X. Tried to replicate the "X" (cross) throughout the layout by using green staples on the journaling tags. Title is painted (chip) grungeboard. 

Have a great weekend SSnM fans and hope this inspires you to try something new!

For me, running a 4 mile race never seemed possible, but this the ripe ole age of FORTY, I did it!!! Yep, I was slow, but I did it! So what was the first thing I did after gulping down a bottle of water, taking some Advil and a nap? I broke out my Scrappin Sports & More supplies and got to scrappin...

I definitely see more races in my future. Good thing I have a large supply of papers in my stash!!

Rhythm of Life

Another dance rectial layout from me..shocking, I know!  Well, when each girl does 4-5 dances in every show there are many photos to take!  It's always hard to get good photos during the recital because the lighting is typically dim and the girls are moving so quickly.  I tend to keep my photos small for printing because the larger they are the blurrier they are... so I use a group of smaller wallet sized photos to tell my story.

This was my first time using the "b" side of the Girls Rule Dance paper..I just LOVE it.  My daughter always looks so happy on stage...she loves to dance and it shows!  I offset the black and white of that paper with the "b" side of the Title Sports Dance paper because I love how the purple offsets the green of her costume. So there you have it.  Another great recital layout thanks to the Scrappin Sports papers!
