My older DD really likes to play soccer. She plays in the rec league in our town. When asked what she liked best about last season, she said, "I guess everything. And I really liked my team." So I guess that was a pretty good year!
So how did I make this? Well, the soccer green pattern paper was in my stash. The soccer girl is cut from the All Sports cartridge. She was cut at fit to page, which ended up being just over 8". A little tidbit about this girl - she does not fit exactly on her base layer. I had to do a little trimming so that she didn't have grass growing off her arms and legs. Or... in soccer you do get a lot of grass stains, maybe they meant it that way?!
The title was cut from Varsity Letter, the Lite cart. Fall was cut at 1.5" and Soccer at 2". I used the Narrow feature key because I think those letters are so much easier to glue together than the normal font. I'm not sure the name of them but I used the Scotch dimensionals that you see in the picture to pop up the word fall. I love these when I want something to stick up but not too much. They are made of a soft foam and are easy to squish down.
Here's just a fun pic of the layout in progress as I thought things out and decided where things were going to go.
Here is a closer view of the left hand final page for you:
The journal box there is from the phrase key of the soccer girl I used from All Sports. It was cut at 2.5" in purple and 2.25" in white.
And of the right side final page:
And lastly, I have one fun picture for you. Do you ever wonder what someone's desk looks like in the middle of a project? Here was mine in the middle of this layout. Do you see all that nice corner desk work space? Yeah, me neither! All that space and somehow it all gets instantly covered up and I end up working in a 6x6" area. Sheesh! :)
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
