...why I don't like creating scrapbooks - IT TAKES FOREVER. This is a mini scrapbook made from one piece of 12x12 Desiger Series Paper and the finished size is 3x6 closed. The scrapbook itself only takes minutes, me deciding how to decorate it took about three hours.
My grandson Ryan played baseball here this summer while him and his mom and little brother were staying with us. I've been meaning to make him some kind of scrapbook for weeks but I just haven't had time. So Monday while my husband was out of town I decided to stamp all day and work on some projects that had been floating around in my head (before I forgot them). And this was my first project. I really didn't mean to spend so much time on it, but I'm pretty inexperienced when it comes to scrapbooking so it takes me a while.
This project uses a combination of new and retired products. The stamp sets that I used are Just Baseball and Sporting (both retired). I bought these sets when they were on sale for half price because I knew in the near future I would have some little athletes in the family. I even had to mount them before using them as these sets were pre-diecut sets, I really am thrilled our sets are all diecut now. I also used the new Pennant Punch which was great for this project.
The little baseballs you see sticking out at the top of the scrapbook is attached to inserts I made so my daughter could write down things like Ryan's coach's name and team members. At this point you think you will never forget those details, trust me, 25 years later you will be glad you did.
Well I hope you like it, thanks for looking,
