Basketball Layout

Hello! Samantha here with you today. Football season ended, and less than a week later basketball season started. I love every minute of watching my kids grow, challenge themselves, and learn through sports. I also love trying to capture some of those moments in this basketball layout.

Supplies: All Star Sports Paper Pad, Basketball Essentials Sticker, Basketball Washi Tape Set

The All Star Sports paper pad has a mix of sports papers in it and one card stock sticker sheet. I think my favorite paper in the whole pad might just be the paper with all the hexagons. Not only is it a really fun piece of patterned paper, but the outline of all the hexagons is a metallic silver that just add so much to the layout. There’s the added bonus that it coordinates with every other piece of paper in the collection!

In my world, no layout is complete without some of Paper House’s fabulous 3D Stickers. I used one of the larger ones for my basketball title and to add a bit of dimension to the center of my photos with the 3D basketball.

I needed something to ground the layout at the bottom, so I added some basketball washi tape. The basketball washi tape comes as a set. You get both the die cut basketballs and the black and metallic silver striped washi tape. You might be noticing that I love the metallic silver touches that run all through this collection and the coordinating embellishments.

I completed the layout with some card stock stickers (7th Grade) clustered up with a few more 3D stickers.

No matter what sports season you’re in right now Paper House has just the sticker for that!

Football Layout

Hello! Samantha here today with a football layout. I don’t know about you, but in our house fall means lots of football; playing and cheering on our favorite teams. Until this year, my kids only played flag football. This year is my oldest son’s first year of tackle football, so I definitely needed to document his first game.

Supplies: All Star Paper Pad, Football 3D Stickers, Football Mixed Stickers, Football Cardstock Stickers, Football Faux Enamel Stickers

This is one of those layouts where the wide variety of stickers that Paper House carries really helps make the layout come together. Because I chose the big, all over football print as my base for this layout, I had to keep the rest of my paper choices pretty neutral. I went with a football turf green paper for one accent and a blue paper for my second accent (my son’s school colors are black, blue, and white).

To help add pizazz to this layout, I added quite a few stickers in different textures and finishes to tell the story. I layered flat alpha stickers over a card stock football sticker. I put a faux enamel arrow pointing to my son in the sea of Nighthawk football players, so I’ll always remember which one he was. I layered clear metallic stickers over the photo. I also added some 3D and chipboard stickers to add more texture.

Many of the football stickers and some of the patterned paper from All Star have touches of metallic gold or silver to them which really helps tie everything together into one cohesive layout.

Whether you’re cheering on a favorite team or a favorite player, Paper House has all the football stickers and papers you need to document your team spirit.

Soccer Scrapbook Layout

bev-code-1

Hi everyone. It’s Bev here today and I am super excited to share with you some fabulous layout pages using the best ever sports collections from Paper House. I am sharing soccer pages today but be sure to check out the store for all the other sports collections that are available…. not only papers but the perfect accents too.

 Soccer Layout Supplies List:
Instructions:
When I start a page I pull possible photo plus a few more, paper collection, accents and some coordinating cardstock, I lay things out on the background but don’t glue anything down.

Once I laid things out I decided that I’d use the cardstock sticker alpha for a banner title. I draw an arch on the red cardstock for rough placement and mark the center. I also found the center of  the letters I planned to use. I then place the letters just above the line so it won’t show when I hand cut it.

I hand cut the banner and and cut the fun edges.

At this point I placed the title and also pulled some accents I thought I wanted to use into position. I still haven’t glued anything down yet. I now take a photo so when I remove everything to go back and start gluing down from the background moving forward I can review the photo for placement.  At this point I also decided that a sports page would look awesome with some rustic texturing in the background.


So after removing everything but the last layer of soccer ball paper I used a stencil and modeling paste to scruff it up. Some of it overlaps the print. In spots you don’t want to cover the print just be sure to cover it with a plain paper so the modeling paste doesn’t touch it.

 

Here is the finished look with all the stenciling done.
Now I started gluing everything back down referring to the photo when needed and added the accents.

Here are a few close ups for your viewing. Gives you a better look at the details in the different sections of the layout. What a great cluster in this view with a great mix of stickers and 3D puffy accents.

 

In this lower corner you can view the great border strip of words, some of the soccer ball strip cut apart and another accent. Clustering is the in thing right now and with great papers, border and accents you can make your own clustered sections.
 
This section showcases the large background paper banner behind the matted photos.

 This area using stickers, 3D stickers and accents.
Here is my video on creating this layout:

 Thanks for joining me today…………. hope to see you again soon.

100% Country

Hello Paper House fans! It’s Lee-Anne here today and I’m sharing another horse layout of my niece Laine and her horse Cameo.

Supply List

IMG_3917

I am loving the paper and the stickers of all things country and horses.  I combined both the puffy and the 3D card stock stickers around my photo.  I love the texture and dimension it gives the layout.

IMG_3916

Sometimes I like to add papers that were meant for a certain theme, such as the chevron and star paper that were in the All Star Football collection, but thought they would be awesome for this western themed page.  I added some strips that I tore and inked to the right edge of the layout and then took my sewing machine and stitched it down and then added a piece of twine and some sequins to direct the eye to the photo.

IMG_3921

I hope you are inspired to create with all the awesome 3D puffy stickers and 3D card stock stickers and also use papers in a different theme than what they were intended for.  Have a great day!

Batter Up!

Hey there Scrappy Friends!

Lisa  here today to share a sports layout I created. I take so many sports photos, have scrapped some and still have a ton left to scrap! So during baseball season this year, I had to stop myself from grabbing the camera to take to every game. Am I the only one like that? Or do you do it as well? I also decided to try and use a series of photos on my sports pages.

I used a series of 3 photos from my son batting during one game and came up with this fun page:

Batter up

Batter Up Layout Supplies:

Batter up close up 1

I used white cardstock for my background and added some watercolor to it. I also added some black mist spatters.

Batter up close up 2

I layered my photos side by side and added layers behind them with the fun sports themed papers. I also added some stitching. I fussy cut “Let’s Play Ball” from one of the Baseball Tags and popped it up using foam tape:

Batter up close up 3

I used the “Batter Up!” sticker and popped that up with foam tape as well. The baseball under it is also from the sticker sheet as well as the baseball border:

Batter up close up 4

 

So dig out those photos that you have a lot of and scrap a series of 3 on your page!
Thanks for sharing your day with us at Paper House!

Hi Paper House Fans! Sue joining you today with a baseball layout! Of the 100’s of baseball pictures I’ve taken throughout Justin’s years of playing baseball, this is one of my favorites.  Under the lights on a warm summer day.  I don’t even remember if he scored.  (I do remember we were creamed)

Field of Dreams

Hey there Paper House fans!  Today I am sharing a layout I created using the Sports/All Star collections from Paper House Productions.  I used my son’s baseball photo from last year and these awesome sports papers and came up with this page:

Field of Dreams PH

Field of Dreams Layout Supplies:

I used my Cameo to cut the shooting stars from the All Star Paper and stitched through some of the shooting stars:

Field of Dreams PH close up 5

I used 2 of the tags and added one to each side of my matted photo and stitched them as well. I used some of the stars that were cut from the Cameo and scattered some around my page. That cute banner is included on the sticker sheet:

Field of Dreams PH close up 3

The mini alphas are from the fun sticker sheet, love them!

Field of Dreams PH close up 4

I added the baseball bat sticker on top of one of the stars and also added a wood veneer baseball. The “Field of Dreams’ title is printed right on the paper! Love that my title was already done for me 🙂

Field of Dreams PH close up 2

As soon as I saw that “hey now, you’re all star” sticker, I knew I had to use it! Also, because I know there is a song that has those words in it and I was singing it as I added it to my page. I just can’t remember the title or singer of that song?!

Field of Dreams PH close up 1

I hope I have inspired you in some way to dig out your sports photos and try these fabulous papers and  stickers.

Enjoy your day!
