Sticks and...

Veronica down Arlington (NY) way sent us this double layout featuring her son's Lacrosse team. I love that she took time to cut around the top stick on the Lacrosse paper so it would show in front of the photo. That, along with the use of pop dots for the letters and assorted cardstock stickers, really adds a great 3-D effect.

Products used:

P0219E Lacrosse Paper
P0264 Soccer Collage
P0300E Distressed Grass
STCX-0007E Lacrosse Stickers
Bazzill cardstock - 12 X 12
PSX ink stamps
Pebbles Inc. Mackavilli alpha stamps
Fiskars Deckle Paper Edgers

Left Page

Used the Lacrosse paper for the background.
Used a 5 x 7 picture of the team and cut it to 7 X 4 1/2 and matted it on a 9 X 5 1/2 partial piece of paper from the Soccer Collage
I cut around the lacrosse sticks so all of the stick could be viewed and layered it partially over the picture.
I added the cones and words SCOOP, CRADLE and THROW from the cardstock stickers on left side of picture.
I had taken a picture of my grandson's shirt (front & back) and cut out the designs and placed them on the corners of the picture.

Right Page

Used the Distressed Grass paper for the background.
I matted all pictures on card stock and inked the edges with brown ink.
I used alpha stamps for the word UNDEFEATED and used scissors to cut around edges
I raised every other letter with foam dots.
Placed quote, helmet, sticks and shoes (raised w/3-D foam dots) on corner

Thanks, Veronica!
