Werner Park Layout

Tyler's High School Varsity team got the opportunity to play at Werner Park twice this spring.  Werner Park is the home of the Omaha Storm Chasers (formerly the Omaha Royals) and moved to this awesome stadium just minutes from our house.  The Royals used to play at Rosenblatt (the home of the College World Series) until a new stadium was built in downtown Omaha.

As a Junior, we did not expect Tyler to play at all.  He is a catcher and spent most of the game in the bull pen which is behind Center field.  Coach summoned him from the bull pen in the last inning.  He had to run from center field to the dugout in between plays, put on his batting gloves and helmet and go to the on-deck circle.

I don't know who was more or him!!!

He got a base hit!!!  We lost the game but he got a base hit!!!!

This week at Frosted Designs, our challenge is to use Stamps in our project.  Since I mainly scrapbook, I wanted to use stamps in my layout.  I used stamps from our sponsor this week Pink by Design.

I wanted to create my title to mimic the logo on the ticket.

I welded two arrows together from Art Philosophy.

WERNER is created from Varsity Letter.  I unlinked the chain and stretched taller the outer letters.

Park is the shadow feature of Base Camp.  I wasn't sure if I wanted blue or green letters, so I cut both.

My first attempt at cutting demonstrates my frustration with the Gypsy updates.  My double arrow looks like a deformed cloud!!

I copied and pasted the arrow to another layer on my Gypsy and re-cut.  This time it worked!  I will keep this trick in mind when I have other welded images....

I used my favorite trick for lining up my letters perfectly.  I used the negative piece as a template.

I used the blue letters because they are blue on the ticket.

I used Pink by Design Got Game stamps to stamp "Batter Up!" on my photo.

I used Stazon Opaque ink, but was disappointed in the ink.  I had to re-ink it and stamp a scrap paper several times to get it to look this good.

I used Pink by Design journaling stamps to create a round journal box.

I stamped on creme colored cardstock and used a 1 7/8" punch to create my circle.

I wrote out my journaling before I added it to the layout.

Eat, Sleep, Play comes from Got Game also.  It is a single stamp.  I used Post-it-Notes to mask out the areas I did not want the stamps.  I inked the edges of the banner with Vintage Ink.  I glued down some twine and pop-dotted the banner flags on top.

Here is my ticket.  I added some twine and a baseball brad.

I added some twine to the side of the journal tag and some inking to the edges.

Here is the layout all put together.  I love the paper and did not want to cover it up!

Join us this week with a project using stamps at Frosted Designs and you could win an awesome prize from Pink by Design!!
