Here is the first page created with Scraptastic's Faded Jeans kit. When our team won the Super Bowl a couple of years ago, the city went nuts, and the partying went on and on. Although I'd completed a couple of layouts and a mini-album about the win, I still had some scrap-worthy photos begging for a page: Coach Sean Peyton driving from the airport waving the Lombardi trophy out the sunroof of his car, Dave Matthews performing at the NFL Kick-off party, and a trio of Saints fans with their homemade trophy hats!
To tie together the disparate photos (from different days and in dissimilar sizes) I arranged and matted them together on a rectangular piece of cardstock.The linear blocking gave it some unity.
Then the title was cut with my Cricut, but instead of using the individual letters, I used the negative on my page, revealing the cardstock beneath the patterned paper. (Glimmer Mist in Jack O' Lantern turned cream-colored cardstock to an orange that closely matched the orange of the polka dot patterned paper.)
My "trophy" is simply a piece of chipboard covered in tin foil! So easy to do!
I love how this page portrays a little more of the story of those days, that year, and our super team.
