Baseball Photo Decor with Square 1

I have been playing with Square 1 Masterpiece Repositionable Adhesive Fabric and I have to say - this is by far my favorite project I have made!!!!

I bought these canvases LAST summer to make something for my cousin's wedding.  She never got me the photos I asked for so it just sat and sat and waited for a different opportunity.

I don't have the exact project so show you but here are two similar ones I found on Pinterest:

Take the wedding photos from the left and put them on the canvas and add wedding words - that was my original project.

Being a baseball mom, it just hit me to create a baseball canvas.  I did not want to mod podge photos onto the 4x4 canvases, so I just copied them onto the repositionable fabric on my copy machine/printer!!

This stuff is amazing and the best part is - as Tanner grows I can replace the photos!!!

If you want to find out more information on this product, just go HERE.  It is on sale through Sunday, June 30 2013!!!

I trimmed three of the photos to 4x4.  The last photo I kept 4x6 because it was going in a scrapbook page.

I trimmed the photos and put them on the canvas pieces.

You just peel them off the backing like a sticker!  If they go on crooked - no worries!!!  You just try again!

You can see I was stuck on the vertical positioning at first.

I came up with my own baseball sayings and they were not fitting in the space, so I turned it horizontal.

I used my gypsy and to find all my fonts!!

I use MyCutSearch all the time to find images on cricut cartridges.  I did not know how to search fonts until I asked.  I wanted to share what I learned with you - so HERE are the directions with photos!!

I used:
 Hannah Montana, Hello Kitty Font, MS Seasonal Art Cake, Base Camp, Artiste, Craft Room Basics, and Nate's ABC's

I cut the words out in vinyl and transferred them to the top half of the canvas.

I adhered black ribbon around the edges of the canvas.

I used washi tape, a ruler and my 12x24 cricut mat to space my small canvases on the bottom half.

I love that washi tape doesn't stick too well for this project!!

I used hot glue to adhere them down and peeled the washi tape off.

Here is a side view so you can see the dimension.  I originally covered the small canvases with ribbon, but did not like the gaps it had - so I took it off.

Tanner played his first season of select baseball this year and we are coming up on our state tournament.  I am very proud of him!!  He is 7 on an 8 year old team.  He has been watching his brothers play baseball his entire life and now is his turn!!!

I purchased frames with special mats for his brothers several years ago and can not find anything similar now.  I have to say, I like this one MUCH better than his brothers frames!!!

Hi Lori - thanks for stopping by :-) They are hoping to shatter the stone in Andy's kidney, as a first option and then he has to pass them - makes me cringe just thinking about it. This is a really fabulous canvas - wow! Love it and how you added the miniature canvas' for the photos!

LOVE the project, and the fact that with Square 1 you can easily change out the photos. You could even save the old ones to use for a Graduation display when the time comes.

Great Job!
