Girls Rule Line - Track

Okay, I know the name of the line is Girls Rule, but this track paper is perfect for male athletes too!  The colors in it were perfect for the green uniforms of my son's team.  I just love it when I get good action photos!  His feet are both in the air as he is flying down the track.  It was a great season; can't wait for this year!

2008 Baseball Team

Lately I have become obsessed with reorganizing my scrapbook albums, I have decided to put each sports season into it's own album and I LOVE IT!  I can browse my photos from a particular season as I flip through the album to see if I have scrapped it or not.  Sadly, it seems more of the photos aren't scrapped - I will slowly catch up. :)

Here is a layout using SSM's FANTASTIC new winter Lines!  I love this big baseball on the Sporty Words paper!  This is perfect for my son's first baseball team photo from May 2008!

Products used:
Sporty Words - Baseball paper #1397
Girls Rule - Soccer #1393 paper (both of the black patterns)
Cardstock Stickers - Baseball #5544

Be Mine!

It's time to start thinking about what kind of goodies you are going to make for Valentine's Day!  It's less than three weeks away, afterall!!  I used this tutorial to make this fun little gift box.  Then, I covered it with some fun red Scrappin' Sports papers.  I am going to fill it with candy for one of my kids.  And, of course I'll have to make another one, too!  These would be great as party favor boxes for birthday parties and baby showers, too!
It's hard to believe this is baseball paper!!

Soccer Playoffs

I love to watch Lily in motion.  Whether it be soccer, swim, or dance, she is fun to watch. She is such a sprite. Small and fast and graceful.  

For this layout, I use both sides of the Soccer paper (#1405) from the new "Sporty Words" line.  I played on the big "Soccer" at the bottom for my title work.  The big soccer ball is handcut from the other side of the same paper.  The little soccer balls, Soccer Balls Cardstock Stickers (#5530), are mounted on black cardstock. I gave them some dimension by using PopDots for height.

Ready for some Softball?

Nothing makes me feel better when the weather gets cold than to scrap about warmer times! As I scrapped this page, I could think about the warm sun beaming down on my neck as I watched my daughter, Bailee, play. 

The right and left page of this layout are the A and B sides of the new Sporty Words paper (plus an oldie, but a goodie). It is so nice when you can use both sides of the paper. By cutting out the word "softball", my title matched the colors on the left side perfectly, allowing for a cohesive 2 page layout!

Bronco Fans

This season no one expected the Denver Broncos to make it to the play-offs, but they did and what a game it was! Even though the temps were very cold due to snow the day before, it was worth it!  This game will be remembered for years!

Hi, everyone!  I'm loving the new paper lines.  I know that this one was meant for a "prom" theme, but since my kids are still to young to be thinking about proms yet, it made me think of a Disney princess!  And, of course, the photo of us with Belle last year was still waiting to be scrapped.  So, here it is!  I love using my imagination and using the SS&M Papers for something "outside the box" of what they were intended for!  I've got a few more swirling around my mind, too!

Running Is My Life

The new "Girls Rule" Line is so fun.  From the great big corner titles to the fun prints, it is bound to be a favorite!  I was so excited to see running paper in this new line.  It was perfect for the photo of me and my peeps before the Seacoast Half Marathon in November. I wrote about the race experience on my blog in this post

New Gymnastics Paper!!

Just in time for the season to begin!! Now how handing is that?? When I had the opportunity to see the new papers to be released and saw that there were new gymnastics papers, I grabbed my camera and RAN to the gym to catch a few moments of my favorite gymnast!

The best part is, the stripes and the circles on the back go together so nicely and they can be used for almost anything. As a matter of fact, I intend to use my scraps to create a whole different layout. Stay tuned for that post!

Soccer Star...

Luke has decided that he has played his last soccer game and truth be told, it makes me a little sad.  Soccer has always been a huge part of our lives and now all the boys are transitioning over to only baseball.  As I was looking back through my photos, I found these of his last season and wanted to get them documented.

This layout is a combination of all sorts of Scrappin Sports & More lines - I love how they are all so versatile and work so well together! 

Keep watching the blog for some great stuff from the Design Team using the BRAND NEW lines releasing soon!

Pirates {fall} Baseball Team

For the past two years, my son has played both spring and fall baseball; fall baseball is supposed to be less intense and more informal than spring baseball it still doesn't stop me from taking a lot of photos and insisting on a team photo. :)

I left the journaling card blank for my son to add his teammates names, since he likes to do that part and I like having his handwriting in his scrapbooks!

Products used:

Name of the Game - Baseballs paper #1255
The Sport is  ... Baseball paper #1337
Cardstock stickers  Baseball #5544
Cardstock stickers Baseball Player #5501

Cap & Gown

I always find traditional activities such as sports, holidays and graduations a little more difficult to scrap.  That is why I just love Scrappin' Sports & More papers.  Their papers inspire me design layouts that are theme based, but in my own style. 

I designed this Graduation page with a couple different lines of SS&M papers.  
"School Is Cool" Line
Senior Paper (#1365)
CardStock Stickers (#5575 High School)
"Title Sports" Line
Baseball Paper (#1367)
Wrestling Paper (#1384)
