The Many Possibilities with Good ol' Sport


Summer is such a fun season to use our Good ol' Sport collection. The colors and images remind us to get outside, have fun, and celebrate the rich colors of this season! We have three amazing Good ol' Sport projects today! First, we start off with an amazing altered tray by Annette Green. Then, we share an all-star card by Lori Williams. We wrap up the blog with a home run - Nadya Lifa's altered wall hanging display. What a great day this will be - great ideas for masculine projects and for celebrating those wonderful summer days!

Don't forget to take part in our contest this week! Another giveaway perfect for summer - By the Sea! Just comment here on the blog or on Facebook to win.



Now, let's celebrate Good ol' Sport! Annette shares the most wonderful altered tray with glorious details throughout. You're going to love it!

"My husband is a hard-working and even harder-playing type of guy. He has always loved his sports, so I thought this sports-themed display tray would make the perfect Father’s Day gift for him this year. The Good Ol’ Sport collection has it ALL covered, from football to baseball, hockey and boxing and more. I was able to pull together a nice memory keepsake which Paul can enjoy for years and years." ~Annette

The colors that Lori uses are just perfect on this card. And she provides a tutorial for how to get that faux leather look that is the perfect compliment for more masculine projects.

"I’ve got a whole house full of boys so the Good Ol’ Sport Collection is perfect for my family. My youngest son loves cards and ones that have a twist are his favorite. This easel card is fun in and of itself as it’s an easel card. I love easel cards because they display so well and seem to be more than just a card. This one has a little motion fun to it also. The baseball on the front of the card slides up and down for movement as if it’s being knocked out of the park.

Be sure to see the tutorial that accompanies this card. It will show you how to make the faux leather trim that combines so well with the masculine theme." ~Lori
