Tennis Anyone?

I am so excited to be here at The Bug Bytes today!!

This is Lori from ScrappinMyStressAway and I have a son who is a senior in high school  I am trying to get his album caught up for his graduation party.  Tennis season just ended, and I wanted to showcase his letter certificate.

I started with my Gypsy of course!  I put a square from George on my mat.  I unlinked the chain between the width and height and selected Real Size.  The shapes on George are not true to size - I learned this years ago the hard way!!

The certificate measures 8.5 x 11, so I made my rectangle 8.75 x 11.25 to give me an 1/8 inch border.

I used Varsity Letter for my font and used the shift to put the shadow (bottom) layer on my mat and sized the letters and numbers to 1.15 inches.  I centered them on the top and bottom of the rectangle and welded them on.

I cut my design out of black cardstock.

I used the toss-away piece as a back to my tennis ball paper.  The paper was a little flimsy.

I trimmed off 1/4 inch off of two sides (a top and a side if you will) to make the tennis ball paper 11.75 x 11.75.

I adhered the tennis ball paper to the black toss-away piece to create the layered look.

I went back to my Gypsy and cut out the inside cuts of TENNIS and 2012 2013 (also sized to 1.15 inches) in a bright yellow cardstock.

I adhered the certificate and the letters and numbers to the page.  I used glue dots to add his chevron in the event that he wants a letterman jacket.

This could be easily adapted to any sport or activity, as well as other certificates (honor roll, national honor society, recognition from a teacher, etc).

I copied and pasted this image to another layer on my Gypsy and removed TENNIS and added BOWLING as he is at his first tournament right now.  I am getting ready ahead of time!!

I hope I inspired you to add your big items to your scrapbooks in a fun way!!
