All Star Layout

Hello... Rochelle here to share with you a layout I made with the Sept. "Game On" kit!

This monthy kit was perfect for my son's baseball photos!  The blues and reds in this kit really brought out the photos well.  I used paint around my edges of the paper strips so that the papers wouldn't blend together.  

I also splashed paint on the cardstock just to add a little touch to the page. :)  For the die cut stars, I added glossy accents along with glitter to add some texture. And lastly, I used a sketch from Artful Delight for my inspiration.  

I hope my layout was inspiriting to you and if you have some sports photos to scrap, this kit is perfect for you!!! :) 

Happy Scrappin'!

Hi everyone, Lyla here with my Great Grandson playing ball.

This layout was super fun for me because I was able to use my sewing machine to add  the feather stitch around the edge to mimic the stitching on the baseball.
This kit “Game On” featuring the Little Sport paper line from Fancy pants had some really cute banners.  I used the baseball one and tied some twine around it for texture.  I then cut out several different sized baseballs and added them to look like the ball was disappearing in to space…like a HOME RUN???lol I finished it up with a couple of the little flags included on the “Pieces” cardstock sheet and added  the title from the Letterman alpha by Thickers.  I also added some journaling strips that I  attached with the feather stitch.
If you have any photos of  your kids playing sports then this is the kit to get. It covers football, baseball, basketball and soccer…..enough themes to get you through the whole school year. 

Fun kit and I can’t wait to see what fabulous creation  Rochelle will share with us tomorrow.

Nana's #1 Star Player!!!

Hello everyone!  
Brenda here to share another layout I created using the September "Game On" Kit.
I started off by  punching the edges of my base using my MS Cherish all around punch, one of my favorite punches.   I also used the same punch on the layered piece behind the photo.   To create  the pennant I glued a small stick which had a flat side to it, to the back of the pennant,  cut a circle and added at the #1 and my grandson's name, using mini sticker alphas.  I then tied some of the twine from the kit to jazz  it up a little.  To add a little dimension to the layout I doodled around the baseball paper with a black pen and layered all of the embellishments and photo with chipboard.  
This is an old photo of my grandson that needed to get scrapped, and the baseball paper and embellies in this kit worked out perfectly!   
Kit Supplies:
Patterned Papers:   Fancy Pants Baseball, Ball Player
Cardstock:  Promegrante
Twine:  Twinery "Shore"
Diecuts:  Fancy Pants Banner & Pieces Diecuts
Thank you for stopping by today.  
Please come back tomorrow and check out what Lyla has to share with you!

Final Introduction of Our Design Team!!!

Hello and welcome!    
Today we are introducing our final Design Team member.  
Please meet the sweet, hilarious creator/owner of this wonderful site, 
Lyla from Idaho:

Hi, my name is Lyla and I live in the beautiful mountains of northern Idaho. I am married to my wonderful, supportive husband and between us we have 9 children, 16 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren....YES, I AM THAT OLD!!!LOL  Having this big of a family there is never a shortage of wonderful pictures to scrap.

I started scrapping with 2 of my grandaughters in 2006.  One of them shares my love of this creative adventure.  I love the fact that I can scrap the familiarities oddities that pop up in the family photos.  I love paper, paper, paper and always on the hunt for the latest and most wonderful papers and embellishments to add to my creations.  I think I am a very clean, simple kind of scrapper, but, love to try new things.  Every now and then I will find some inspiration from all of the creative people in the scrappy world and try to put my own twist on it.

I am very excited to  be sharing this adventure with two very awesome ladies, Brenda and Rochelle.   They are very creative, talented scrappers and wonderful friends.   I can't wait to see where this adventure leads  us!!!

Now you have met our Design Team and we are looking forward to getting to know each of you a little better in the near future!!!
Here is Lyla's  "Soccer" Themed interpretation of our September sketch using the

Introducing Another Design Team Member!!!

Happy Monday!  
Thanks for stopping by, we love visitors!   
Today we are back to introduce you to another one of our Design Team members. 
Meet Brenda form Oregon:
Hello ! My name is Brenda Ragsdale and I am so excited to be joining the MOB design team and working with two awesome ladies!!!! I am a native of California currently residing in Oregon. I am mother to two awesome adult sons and GrandDiva to two beautiful granddaughters and two handsome grandsons. 

I prefer creating layouts, and will occasionally create a card or altered item. I would say that my style is more on the clean and simple side. I created my first scrapbook album in 2006 and then quit for a few years and did not seriously start scrapping again until the beginning of 2010. I am so glad that I became addicted to scrapbooking as it is the perfect way to record my family’s history and tell each family members personal story. I like scrapping the good, bad and the ugly stories and details as it is all a part of our daily existence. 

I am looking forward to working with the Lyla and Rochelle as well as inspiring you and seeing some of your beautiful creations. 

Thank you Brenda for sharing a little about yourself with MOB and it's followers.  
Below is Brenda's "Football" themed take on this month's sketch, created using the MOB "Game On" Kit
Visit us on Tuesday when we introduce another Design Team Member and reveal another layout created using the MOB September "Game On" Kit!!!

Over the next several days we will be introducing our design team members.   Today we would like you to meet Rochelle from Nevada:
Hello! My name is Rochelle Spears. After 15 years of Real Estate, I am currently a SAHM of 5 children (22, 18, 12, 5, and 3) that knows how to pose when they see a camera! :) I am a wife to a wonderful husband who supports my craft to the fullest! 
I have been scrapbooking for 8 years and I just can't get enough of it! I love product... the smell of new paper... I love seeing the creation in my mind come alive on my paper! I love putting the final touches on my layouts and the biggest love of all... is watching my husband pull out my scrapbooks when guests come over! :) 
Besides my family and scrapbooking, you will find me traveling, reading or watching Netflix! I love coffee in the morning, Mt. Dew during the day and chocolate at night. 
This is me, Rochelle. :) 

Thank you Rochelle for introducing yourself and for your awesome layout using our "Game On" kit and the September Sketch.
