Score! Volleyball Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: Flaire Designs All Star Collection Paper, Scrappin’ Sports & More Volleyball Rubon-Ons, CTMH Button – Black Assortment, CTMH Slate Polka-Dot Washi Tape,  CTMH Game On stamp set, CTMH Whisper cardstock, and CTMH Slate ink.
Challenge: – Page Maps Sketch Challenge

I used this sketch from Sketch Support:

What started out as a dreaded layout turned into a happy ending.  I think the sketch was what did it for me.  It is very hard to get good sports (action) photos and the smaller photos suggested on this sketch made me “zoom in” on the action and really focus on my daughter.  I have to say that this is my first use of Washi Tape and OMG I am in love – very cool stuff!  I have to also say that these rubons are wonderful…you will be seeing them in the near future as I finish a couple more volleyball layouts.

The new Use it or Lose it Challenge is to be inspired by this photo:

I have to say, the colors really got to me…bold and bright and I immediately thought Lagoon and Black.  Here is the layout that I came up with:

Supplies used are all CTMH unless otherwise noted: Black, White, and Lagoon cardstock, Paper Packet, Sparkle Flourishes, Clear Sparkles, Bitty Sparkles, Just Blooms Paper Shapes – Flutter, Damask Tiles stamp set, Boutique Borders stamp set, Black ink, Art Philosophy Cricut Collection, and Making Memories Heidi White Rubon Letters.

I started with a Page Map from November 2011.  I knew the colors I wanted to use and paper with those colors was not coming to mind so I figured I would be stamping some patterns.  Then, I ran across a pack of Veranda paper.  Now I never, ever, ever would have thought I would be using Juniper and Lagoon on the same layout but somehow this works out and is completely inspired by the top photo!

I REALLY wanted to stamp/emboss my title in white with the Bohemian Alphabet but it was the last thing I added to my layout and I chickened out and ended up using white rubons instead.

I just love adding my own little touch to things.   This is just a plain coaster set but I added rubons to give them some extra flair.  It’s very simple to do to make change something from ordinary to extraordinary.  These were a grandparent gift for Christmas with pictures of the new babies.  I had to get a little creative to come up with an idea for the fourth coaster since there were only three babies.  I like how it turned out as a complete set.  Scrap supplies are DCWV vellum quote matted on cardstock, and misc. rubons from my stash.
