Making the Team by Trinity

I love it when there is a new source for hockey papers!  Trinity has a line called Making The Team that has been designed for multiple sports (hockey, football, basketball, soccer, etc.).  Of course I took advantage of the hockey aspect of this line.  This line really doesn't need a lot added to it so it's quick and easy to put together pages.  Here's what I created:

On the double page LO I photoshopped (CS4) the photos to have a vintage spin.  It can sometimes be difficult to match those jerseys to paper so I switched up the colours a little.  I think the vintage photos work great with this paper.

Both LOs are based on  Let's Scrap Sketches.  Play like a Girl is Sketch 9-5-12 and Hockey is Sketch 8-22-12. (Thank you Let's Scrap for such wonderful sketches!)

All patterned paper and stickers - Trinity (Making the Team)
Letter stickers - Thickers, Paper Trunk 
Die Cut Letters - Quickuts (Eliza) cut on my Sizzix
Ink - Tim Holtz
Brads, button and rick rack from my stash

For taking a peek at my blog, I thank you!

A little bit of sewing

For the last little while the sewing bug has bitten me.  Probably a good thing seeing that it was back in the spring I promised the neighbour girl I would make her an apron for her birthday.  A few weeks ago I finally got to it.  I made an apron for Dani and her American Girl Bitty Doll, and one for my daughter and her American Girl McKenna doll. The girls were thrilled.

I used patterns from Cindy Taylor Oats' Taylor Made Retro Aprons for Kids book.  I've used this book several times and really like it.  I actually have another apron all cut out to be sew - one for my son!

Thanks for taking a peek!

I'm a Doodlebug fan!

 There is no doubt that Doodlebug is one of my favourite manufacturers!  And it has been for years.  A few months ago I worked with the Sugar and Spic line and just love it  Don't think of it as being just for girls - those colours and patterns are very versatile!

Thanks so much for taking the time to look at my work!
