Lombardi Party

Today I'm showing off my first page created with the Scraptastic Faded Jeans scrapbook kit. When our team won the Super Bowl a couple of years ago, the city went nuts, and the partying went on and on. Although I'd completed a couple of layouts and a mini-album about the win, I still had some scrap-worthy photos begging for a page: Coach Sean Peyton driving from the airport waving the Lombardi trophy out the sunroof of his car, Dave Matthews performing at the NFL Kick-off party, and a trio of Saints fans with their homemade trophy hats!

To tie together the disparate photos (from different days and in dissimilar sizes) I arranged and matted them together on a rectangular piece of cardstock.

Then the title was cut with my Cricut, but instead of using the individual letters, I used the negative on my page. (Glimmer Mist in Jack O' Lantern turned cream-colored cardstock to an orange that closely matched the polka dot patterned paper.)

My "trophy" is simply a piece of chipboard covered in tin foil! So easy to do!

Sticker hinges connect a journaling block to the photos. I love how this page, in words and pictures, portrays a little more of the story of those days, that year, and our super team.


  1. Great idea to use the negative alphas!

  2. I really love the way you used the blue circles as a border by cutting them in half. This layout is awesome on SO many levels Madeline!

  3. This layout is wonderful!! I like how you used the negative space of the letters. What font did you use? I have a cricut but I don't recognize the font. I love it !!

  4. Such a creative page. Love all your details. So fun!
