Today I am here to share a clean and simple layout featuring my football obsessed little boy. This young man has lived and breathed football since he was about 2. His favorite teams change but his love of the game hasn’t waivered.
Football Layout Supplies:
- Core Essentials-Brights
- Core Essentials-Neutrals
- Polka Dots Pops – Pearl
- Dust Buddy & Sand-It Gadget
Step 1: Die cut a large football and miscellaneous sized stars.
Step 2: Emboss some of the stars and sand them using the Sand-It Gadget and Dust Buddy to collect the dust.
Step 3: Score lines every inch on green cardstock to mimic a football field and sand the lines.
Step 4: Layer the football, green cardstock, stars, and picture onto the Polka Dot Pops Base.
Step 5: Use stickers or die cut words to create title.
Since February is the month of LOVE…we thought, why not share of love of sketches with everyone?!?!?!
A HUGE thank you to designer Lydia Jackson for creating this sketch for us. It’s got everything you need to create a gorgeous layout, don’t you agree?
Now let’s see Lydia’s layout. Don’t you love the tone on tone sanding for the journaling block? And the label journal strips are such an easy way to ensure you get those memories on the page, too. For tips on how to create those check out the video here. And accenting the hearts along the bottom with one embossed, sanded heart is the perfect accent. SO many possibilities with this sketch.
Now…it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t give something away now would it???
We would LOVE to give one person a Core prize pack for completing this challenge. Link your layout or card back to THIS post or Share it on our FACEBOOK page by February 28th, 2013. It must be visible that you used the sketch as inspiration. You must use Core’dinations Cardstock on the project and at least ONE Core technique. For some inspiration, HERE is a list to our technique videos. You know we LOVE anything that shows off the cool Core’dinations ColorCore Cardstock!
