About Me

My photo
I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

A Soccer Layout

Do you ever struggle with certain photos and what you are going to do with them? I have a whole bunch of action shots of Reid playing soccer but I also wanted to include his team and his personal photo as well. I thought I would walk you through the creating of this page. I started with a 12x12 piece of Kraft cardstock. I used my ScorPal to score a 1 inch grid on the paper. I inked up a sponge with Close to Cocoa ink and dabbed it all over the paper. I had three different designer papers with a soccer theme, but they were all too overwhelming whole so I cut the soccer and goal from one sheet and used my window punch to punch out the words for the frame. I then cut out the soccer balls to make a scallop border around the second photo. I sponged a piece of white cardstock with Close to Cocoa and then I wrote my journaling. Very easy but the page (although, you can't tell this fromt he photo) has texture and is interesting to look at. What do you think? Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

Sarah, I love your scrapbook layout. You put such nice details onto the page. I don't scrapbook much because I can't get my pages to look as nice as yours. I guess that's why I stick with cards mostly. Your son is adorable. I really enjoyed visiting your blog today. I'll be back :-) TFS
