A friend of mine who has a son that plays on the local high school baseball team asked on Facebook if anyone wanted to donate anything for the silent auction they are having. I told her I would make a layout, a double walled tumbler and donate some cards. This is the layout I made for the silent auction.
Cricut Sports Mania cart
Cricut Varsity cart
Tim Holtz wood embossing folder
1/4" and 3/8" Grosgrain Ribbon
Janome Sew Mini
Stampin Up Markers
This is a close up of the first page of the layout. I put in white cardstock where the photo's are to go. I thought this would be easier if the person who wins the layout could place the photos, just in case they aren't a scrapbooker.
I also used pieces of white cardstock on the second page where photos are to go. I thought I would make the suggestion of using a 4x6 photo or using two smaller photos in the one spot. This way they can use more photos on the layout.
I had posted the layout on Facebook and got a lot of comments about the layout but mostly about the glove. To make the glove I used 3 different colors of Coredinations brown cardstock. I sanded in areas on all of it but on the top layer, which is the darkest brown I wadded up the paper and then sanded the paper to make it look worn. I did a little extra sanding on the palm part of the glove. I then added some Colorbox Chalk Ink to "dirty" it up a bit. I went around the edges of the "stitching" with a black Stampin Up marker to add a little definition.
On the bat I put all the layers together and then used the Tim Holtz Wood grain embossing folder and then sanded and inked.
I don't know how much the layout might go for but I am curious to see if people will think it is nice enough to bid on!! I will have to update you guys on the final winning bid.
Amazing! All of that depth and texture on the glove makes it look so real!ReplyDelete

i 'WILL' be trying this!
This is really cool. ThanksReplyDelete
Kat if I do another one I will try to remember to do step by step instructions and take pictures but I don't want to waste paper cutting another one. Paper ain't cheap LOLReplyDelete
OMG you are so talented. That glove looks real. What cart did you use to cut the glove. How did you do the stitching. Love this layout. Colors are not right for my grandson. But I will try and remake it in his colors.ReplyDelete

Love it. Should get a good amount at the silent auction. You did a fab job.ReplyDelete
WOW! That glove looks soooo real! I LOVE this layout and I'm sure whoever gets it is gonna LOVE it! The Bat and Ball are just as cool looking.... Great LO Okie! :o)ReplyDelete
Okie you have impressed me again. That glove is something else. Would have never thought of doing what you did. Only a true scrapper will appreciate all the work you put into this layout. Kudos!!!ReplyDelete
Wonderful job! Love all those details. Good luck with the auction.ReplyDelete
OMGosh! That is the realest (is that a word) glove I've ever seen. I want to do one "just because" but then I would be upset because it didn't compare to yours. Bat and ball...wonderful too.ReplyDelete
Somebody is going to have a great layout. I will have to remember the techniques you used to make one like this for my two little grandson's T ball pictures.TFS.ReplyDelete
Amazing job! The glove is awesome! I have made many scrapbooks without pictures. I do the same as you with the white paper explaining what can be placed in the different areas. People who don't scrapbook find it very helpful. Do let us know what the final bid is onit.ReplyDelete
This is just amazing...and the glove does look real....I would bid on this layout for sure....my daughter is 13 and has been playing softball since she was five....I will definitely be trying to make this glove....GREAT JOB on these pages....:)ReplyDelete
Amazing layout! What a fantasic donation. You are truly talented and creative, this I see from the detail in the glove.ReplyDelete
I'm going to attempt to recreate it for my son, who also plays high school baseball. Thanks so much for sharing your work!
