Basketball Star

One of my scrapping goals this year was to use my Silhouette to its full advantage.  This month's LOAD has really helped along with that goal as I've used the Silhouette on most of the layouts.  For this page, I downloaded the basketball frame from the Silhouette store.  The stars were really easy to create in a border.

The only real challenge here was the lack of paper.  Hunter green - the color of the basketball uniforms - is not a popular scrapbooking color.  The only cardstock I had was a piece just big enough to do the frame.  I had to so a bit of piecing to get the border.

Here's the process video at YouTube:

And here is the sketch:

More sketches in the 2014 sketchbook.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Great design and I love the masculine colours!

  2. Great layout!!!
    I have a cricut and keep saying I need to use it more. But I can't hook mine up to the computer for these cut files. Great goal you have set for yourself.

  3. Great LO Lisa. I love all the little fixes you do - and how you explain why you do each one. I would like to use my Cricut more too - you're very inspiring!

  4. this is a great layout Lisa-I like your use of the silhouette to create the frame-left you a thumbs up on YouTube
