Rugby: Men in Striped Socks Scrapbook Page

My soft spoken teenage son has taken up the gentleman’s sport of Rugby, and there is nothing soft about it!  He’s really enjoying it and it gives me another photo op, so it’s all good, right?

Rugby Men in Striped Socks by Beth Pingry for Scrapbook Adhesives By 3L,

Creating the Rugby Scrapbook Page

First I created a flip book from a package of Photo CD Packets.  I printed photos to fit inside of and on the back side of each pocket.  The back side has adhesive on it, and the last page of the book is attached to the scrapbook page.  The other pockets have a photo on the back sides, and another photo inside the pocket.  You could even add a CD if you wanted to!

I stacked the pockets and used Crafty Power Tape on the flaps.

Just flip the pages to see all the photos.

Here is the way I created the stripes on the word Rugby. I started by placing a strip of blue cardstock onto an Adhesive Sheet.  Next I made two strips of Crafty Power Tape across the cardstock. Then I die cut the fonts and taped them in place.

I punched each letter, removed the Crafty Power Tape backing from the fronts.  Then I dipped the letters into Distress™ embossing powder and heated until set.  I removed the Adhesive Sheet backing and placed each letter on the top of the Photo CD Pocket.

The large photo and the mats are adhered with MyStik™  Permanent Dispenser.

The labels are stamped with “Men in” and “Striped Socks” and layered with 3D Foam Squares, for dimension and to match the height of the Photo CD Pocket mini-album.  Now when I add this to his scrapbook the pages will be level.

Using the right adhesive keeps my projects neat and clean. Speaking of neat and clean, which is not something I associate with Rugby, especially the laundry it generates, I roughed up and inked the edges of all the papers to give it that ‘just tackled’ look.

I used the following supplies:

  • SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L: Photo CD Pockets, Crafty Power Tape, MyStik™, 3D Foam Squares, Adhesive Sheets
  • Spellbinders S4-306 Wonky Rectangles, Grand Calibur machine
  • Clearsnap ColorBox Fluid Chalk Inkpad in Creamy Brown and Chestnut Roan
  • Ranger Distress Embossing Powder
  • WorldWin Papers Treasures Canvas, ColorMates Sunny Side Up and Blue Potatoes
  • JustRite Stampers® Clear Blocks and Brayton Font (95 and 50 pt.)

Thanks for stopping!
