Soccer digital-traditional hybrid LO

Hi all!  This is another digital-traditional hybrid LO I finished yesterday.  Pictures were taken in 2008, the first time my then 5 y o son took a summer soccer class through our community leisure services with my then 6 y o nephew.  I used the Creative Memories Storybook Creator software to create and plan the digital papers and elements for my LO.  The background digital paper and the filmstrips were by Correen Silke and is a free digital dowload through  The corrugated-look frames were also free downloads (within a kit) from and is by CaliCool.  I love digital frames because really all I had to do was "drop" pictures in them and  arrange them however I want them to look on the page, much like traditional paper scrapping, except everything is on your screen. The digital stamps on the background paper (the label with swirls and the heart) were obtained from   I will try my best to give credit to the artists who created the digital papers and elements on my LOs and direct you to the sites where I got them.  If I forget to give credit to an artist, please know that it is by no means intentional.

After I create my  LOs, I like to transfer their jpg images onto the Silhouette Studio to plan my titles.  I like textures I can touch and creating my titles using die cuts fits the bill.  Below is how the two LOs look imported onto the Silhouette Studio.

I then used the font Rockwell Extra Bold (already in my computer) to create the G, a, l and ! for my title, then created the shadow for the letters using the offset feature.  I used a soccer-in-flames image purchased from the Silhouette Store in place of the letter o in "Goal!".  Below is how I envisioned the pages with the title to appear, with the letters and soccer die-cut images flood-filled with my choice of colors.

After printing the digital LO pages with my wide format printer,  below is how they looked.  Then I was ready to cut my title in my choice of cardstock with my Cameo. 

Here are some closeups of some of the elements/embellishments on the finished LOs.

I embossed the letters with the Tiny Mosaic CB folder then
used a white gel pen for the faux stitching on the
shadows of the letters.

I digitally stiched on my LO!  Digital stitches were
by Lindsay J, from the store. 

Hope you liked my LOs today.  Have a wonderful weekend!

Melody it looks fantastic! It seems like forever since I did a two page spread. So how are you liking your printer? Are you in love yet? I've been so busy I haven't had a chance to do much of any crafting but I am itching to get back to the digital stuff. Great page and thanks so much for sharing!

@ Sabrina - YES I'm in love with this printer ;). Getting the same paper brand as the printer sure is the way to go.
