Creating layout designs in Cricut Design Space makes it so easy when you’re ready to cut the elements and put your layout together.
There are a lot of “stencil” images in DS and I chose one that had circles to emulate the shape of baseballs. Pop Tone Orange Fizz and Black Licorice were perfect for our favorite team’s colors on the title and baseballs. I used Wedding Cake White cardstock for the layout base, the stencil and stars.
I layed the pieces together and realized pretty quickly that this sports page needed some grunge! This was way too clean for a sports themed layout!
So, I grabbed two shades of orange and one gray ink pad. I used a paddle brush to spread the ink around the top half of the layout and to the stars.
I chose to use the negative pieces of the stencil so to make adhering them to the layout easier, I attached the stencil to the Wedding Cake cardstock base using painters tape to create a hinge. This made it so easy to keep them lined up on the layout base.
Now to add the baseballs and stars to the layout. The cuts on the baseball stitching were so fine and the Pop Tone cardstock cut beautifully on my Cricut. The key for these 1″ baseballs was to have a good sticky mat!
Once the balls and stars are attached, I splashed some black & orange ink splatter to add more fun to the layout. As you can see on the close up, I added a black pen border around some of the stars and the layout.
More ink was added to create a place for the title to sit on and once the title and photos were added, it’s done. I had a lot of fun creating this layout.
Don’t worry, I didn’t throw out the actual stencil piece. Don’t be surprised if you see it in a future project!
