To make the front of this album, I cut some old baseballs up. Basically, I just tore the covers off. I then cut them up in to small pieces, and glued them down with ZipDry on the front of the chipboard album. The metal letter ,we got at Michael's in the $1 bin, then painted it red with spray paint. The same is true for the metal Tim Holtz corners and the rings of the album.
Myself and my best friend made every player on our team one of these albums. It was a lot of work, but totally worth it, as we love the boys!
I took pictures of all the boys all season so that we had ample photos, and then I edited them, and printed them. We decided to go simple on the inside of the album this year. In years past, we have gone crazy with the embellishments! We pop-dotted about half of the photos...the rest we left alone.
We matted every photo. The paper was baseball paper by Moxxie. It matched our team, the Bombers, perfectly!
For the scalloped page in the book(we prefer the rectangular ones for obvious reasons), we painted the bottom and used a little baseball stamp for embellishment.
Isn't he cute?
I think he got those pants that dirty just to see if I could get them clean!!
We usually resist the temptation to put a sticker or other embellishment on the photos, but we made an exception for our Bombers logo on this page!
Our team won 1st place at this tournament! Look how proud they are!
