Baseball Is My Favorite Season Layout; CutCardStock Blog

I know I've said this many times, I don't do mixed media layouts...guess what? I did. I designed this layout in Cricut Design Space first. After I cut the elements out, I placed the elements on the white layout base and realized that it was way too stark for a baseball layout.

Look at the difference! It needed the grunge!

So, I pulled out two shades of orange ink and a gray one. I didn't want to use black since I thought it would be too dark.

Check out the YouTube process video to see exactly what I did:

Originally I thought I'd just layer the cut pieces onto the layout and guess their location, but I decided to use the cutaway portion to use as a guide. I taped the cutaway portion down using blue painter tape since it would be easy to remove. I taped it on the top in a hinge fashion. This was a great time saver!

Then I adhered the baseballs, stars and photos to the top half of the layout. I love how this is turning out! When I was ready to place the title, I realized it needed something to rest on too so I added some more orange ink mostly on the right side of where the title would lay.

Isn't this a fun layout! MLB Opening Day is always a big deal in our household and I'm so glad that my son and hubby took pictures!
