Full disclosure.....this is actually Spring Training, but in Florida it's practically summer most of the year! Here's the sketch I used, designed by Lisa Hidy for Sketch N Scrap:
What I LOVE about this sketch is the layering and design for 4 photos, perfect for chronicling an event like this on one page. Most of the patterned papers are from Carta Bella's recent Baseball line (the brick is a scrap of Jillibean Soup...I think LOL). But again, I wanted to challenge myself to dig out stash items & a tool or stamp I haven't used. For my stash items I used an OLD piece of Simple Stories' Awesome line for my background. It was literally the last piece I was hoarding from that line. I also used up some Studio Calico wood veneer stars and some foam AC Thickers for my title. For my stamp/tool I used a CTMH baseball acrylic stamp that I just HAD to have and never used! I was so excited to use the stamped baseballs in the spots of the sketch design where the flowers are. BUT....my dilemma was that I wanted to use the same paper as my background & it was my last piece. So I used an old trick a fellow scrapper showed me years ago. I cut out a square from the background....strategically....where the layering would cover the hole. I then used that piece to stamp my baseballs & fussy cut them.Sketch N Scrap! Hope to see you there!
