Oh My Word Blog Hop!!!


Welcome to the Oh My Word! Blog Hop with Two Scrapbook Friends! You should have arrived here from the Two Scrapbook Friends blog. If you didn’t, you might want to start at Two Scrapbook Friends, so you can read all about it and you won’t miss any of the great inspiration along the way!

My word for 2013 is 'productivity'!  In the last part of 2012, I sort of got away from my scrapbooking.......actually, creating in general.  I didn't feel motivated to do much of anything.  Part of that was letting everyday life get in the way of doing what I really love to do.  I think my word will be a real motivator for me and will apply to anything where there will be a tangible result.....but especially in the creativity department.

I have taken on a big project this year and am really excited about it.  I have set a personal goal to scrapbook the Kitchener Rangers 50th season (all home games).  I am a huge fan and this will be such a wonderful keepsake in years to come.  I am not foolish enough to expect to have this completed in 2013, but it is not impossible.  So far I have completed the cover page and the first 2 games of the season (in double page format).

Here is my most recent creation for my album.

Rangers 2

I save the tickets from each game and use them as embellishments.  Sometimes I leave them as they are, and sometimes I cut them up into pieces.....depending on the layout.  I have 2 tickets for each game, so it give me lots of flexibility.

Rangers 3

I incorporated some stars using a Die-namics die.  I love that they cut different sizes and some silhouettes too.

Rangers 4

I went on a hunt to find the perfect font for my layout and found this one.  It matches the font on the jersey perfectly!

Rangers 5

I combined some red brads with the other embellishments on my layout.

  2. That's a great word, Carolyn, and a HUGE undertaking! You must be a HUGEMONGOUS Rangers fan to want an entire album dedicated to them! I love how you are using the tickets in a variety of ways on your pages.

  5. Wonderful layout, Carolyn! (Even if it is about the Rangers rather than the Storm....though I probably shouldn't say that seeing as dh traded some of his Storm tickets for Rangers tickets for the 25th.) I love all the details and the photos are fab.
