Favorite Custom Papers!

I'm wrapping up my posts on the Custom Papers here at Scrappin Sports and More with some of my favorite creations!

This one just makes me happy --- I love that I was able to custom design paper in a subject that I would never find on the market - crab fishing!


My last one for you is a design that is framed in my house right now --- love that the papers say it all:

Child's Play!

That's right!  Kick Ball is Child's Play!  But, we ALL get into it around here and it's a great family game that we enjoy playing together.  For these custom papers, I created TWO papers to go together and it was a great way to capture this fun family time!

UTAH: Arches Nat'l Park

Utah is a gorgeous state!  I loved our visit to Arches National Park in the Spring 2009.

This layout features Scrappin' Sports & More's Custom Leather Grain 2 Paper, which is amazing by itself so I wanted to keep this layout simple to showcase both the papers and the photos.

Everyday Faith

In this layout, I chose to use #903 Custom Fancy Solid in Teal, White & Black.  I think the scripted lettering is perfect for a special occasion like my daughter Confirmation.

Sports Head On

From hitting The K-Zone to Being a Leader on the field, our new Sports Head On line of papers will be a hit when it comes to scrapping all of your sports related pictures. 

In both of these examples I used the sports ball design on the front side of the papers as primary accents on my pages while using the reverse side of the papers to add  a look of texture and dimension.  I love double sided paper and you are going to love this new line of papers.

Products used:

#1331 Sports Head On Softball
#1336 Sports Head On Wrestling
#1237 Baseball Game Day

Be A Leader

Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder

And I think these girls are absolutely beautiful (as you can tell my the titles in both layouts).

What else is beautiful?  Why, the papers I got to use on these layouts!  SS&M is debuting 2 new lines at CHA in Chicago.  The first is "Calendars Made Easy", a line of papers and cardstock stickers for each month of the year, and the line I'm highlighting in this post.  I used the February, June and August papers along with the June cardstock sticker in this layout of my niece, great-niece and daughter.

In this 2nd layout, Beautiful Daughter, I used the May and June papers along with the watersports paper from the "Sports Head On" line of papers also debuting at CHA.  I absolutely love the blue and gold tones of these papers. 

I know you'll love these beautiful new lines as much as our design team members have.  You'll be absolutely blown away by the designs they've creating and will be sharing with you all in the days ahead.

Ahoy there mateys!!!!  Recently we were kidnapped by pirates and taken aboard their ship!  Well...ok, we paid to go on a pirate cruise...but don't tell my kids!!  It was an amazing experience and we had a great time.  As you can imagine...I was armed with my camera and took LOTS of pictures.  So when we got back, it was time to put it all together.  Scrappin Sports and More had the perfect custom paper to all me to showcase my pictures.

"Exploring" SS&M's Custom Papers!!

Last summer, we went on a bike ride turned hike!  On our ride, we saw this great path that went into the woods.  So, feeling adventurous, we parked our bikes and headed on down the path.  We hiked until the path ended at a river where we rested and enjoyed some wild blueberries for a snack!  All of this fun will be remembered always thanks to the Custom Paper I created!

Products Used:
#999- Custom Leather Grain 2

Round #3 of my Custom Papers!

Everyone knows the my new favorite subject to scrap is my granddaughter, Emma!  My venture into designing Custom Papers wouldn't be complete without designing some for her!

I love the way I can keep the layout simple but make such a dramatic statement with the papers alone!

CHA Sneak Peak.....New Sports Line

I think you'll have to admit, this line is like no other that we have had in the past.  If the design team is any indication, it will soon be one of your favorite lines and with 18 designs to choose from I think you will admit, there is something for everyone! The Design Team has been having a blast designing layouts for CHA.  These will soon be posted on the blog, so make sure you check back often to get some wonderful inspiration!

Monster Trucks: World Finals X

In 2009 we took a trip to Las Vegas to see the Monster Jam World Finals X - this is the big end of season event in which trucks qualify for all season long.  At first, I was just excited for the mini family vacation ... I never expected to have as much fun as I did or meet as many nice people.  The drivers of the Monster Trucks are so nice, so much fun and so very appreciative of their fans (as well as their fan's parents for bringing them!)

This layout features Scrappin' Sports & More's Custom Spirit Names Paper to highlight the champions of the 2009 World Finals X.  The Free-Style champion was AirForce and the Racing winner was Maximum Destruction.  I had a lot of fun creating this layout!
