Baseball & Boom Booms Scrapbook Layout

by Jessica Michaels

Hello everyone! Jessica here with a layout featuring Deco Foil Blanco Gel and Gina K Fancy Foils to document some photos of my boys(hubby included) when we went to a Spikes Baseball game in July 2022. They also had fireworks at the end of the game and gave my boys 3D Glasses to have a magical experience! They promptly ripped them off soon after the fireworks started though LOL.

I started this layout by pulling out a sheet of textured white cardstock by Colorbok and a fireworks stencil by I then reached for my Deco Foil Transfer Gel Blanco and my Stencil Pal, along with a spatula to scoop some out. I taped off the one firework I wanted to use on the stencil with some Pixie Tape so I wouldn’t get any of the other ones on my layout. I wanted to strategically place a few in certain areas so they would peek out around my photos, which I cut into circles on my manual die cutting machine with some stitched circle dies from Echo Park. I applied the Blanco gel using the Stencil Pal first, but when I move onto the second firework, I found it too bulky to continue without running into my first one, so I switched to a plain spatula for the other ones. I continued until I had 5 fireworks on my page.

While that was drying, I set it aside and went to work on my photos. I cut bigger circles for behind each photo out of patterned papers from the Hometown Summer collection by Echo park and I distressed the edges with my edge distresser. I then added some foam tape from the Jumbo Foam tape roll between my photo and the patterned paper for dimension. Once my Blanco Gel was dry, I added pieces of Gina K Fancy Foil in Radiant Red over the gel and sandwiched it between a couple craft and carrier sheets to run through my hot laminator. I just love how those fireworks came out! The photos don’t even do the sparkly goodness justice!

Next, I grabbed a fireworks stamp set by Heidi Swapp from my stash and went to town stamping lots of sparklers on the page behind where my photos would sit. I used distress ink in prize ribbon, distress oxide in candied apple, and archival ink in black. I then embellished with lots of random elements from my stash like Echo Park and Elle’s Studio. I kept to mostly circly bits to match my photos and fireworks.

I added some wordy-bit stamping on the top section of my layout and also used up the last two scraps of patterned paper I had by making a small slice in the white cardstock and tucking them in behind it, adhering with my tape runner. I have the XL tape runner and I love it because it fits so nicely in your hand and it’s super easy to reload when it runs out. I then  added a couple staples for cuteness. I attached all my photos down with some easy tear tape, I like the half inch size. The easy tear tape is super sticky so it’s definitely not going anywhere!

Lastly, I added my title using some Hip Kit Club alphas and admittingly, I spelled it wrong the first go round and didn’t realize it until I had my pictures ready to upload to this blog post. Ooof! Watch the video if you want to giggle at that being spelled wrong the entire time! I did fix it at the end, and it sparked the idea to add some machine stitching across the letters as well with my sewing machine! I added a few more bits to this, more stamping, and lots of sequins from the {Not} Just for Boys Kit Club to really pull it all together. I like using the UltraBond Liquid Adhesive to attach my sequins because it comes out of the bottle with nice, controllable flow and it dries completely clear!
