sports Super Bowl layout

Happy Monday!  The BBTB2 challenge for the next two weeks is a sports theme.  My project for this challenge takes me back to what I'm calling the "before times" (meaning pre-covid).  One of the last big gatherings I attended was a Super Bowl party, where the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl last February.  Looking back at the pictures of all of my extended family watching the game together and celebrating really brought home how life has changed.  

I had so much fun making this layout.  The base was this football paper I had in the stash.  I used the CTMH You Are Here image collection for the football helmets.  Then came the fun part, using my cricut to print and cut svgs I found of each team's helmet logo and a football svgs that had the final score.  I also discovered that there is a free NFL Chiefs font, which I was able to download and cut with my cricut.  And when I googled to see if there was a font for the 49ers, I was able to find a font called Clarendon Bold that is close to what they use for their branded gear.  I cut each of the team names with their respective fonts.  Love being able to personalize the fonts like this for my project!  You can see the rest of the design team's sports themed projects over at BBTB2 and link up your own project to share.

Autumn Days layout

Happy Monday!  I hope you are getting to enjoy some beautiful autumn weather where ever you are!  I am hosting the BBTB2 cricut challenge for the next two weeks and selected a fall theme for the challenge.  I had recently purchased the Close To My Heart Complete Creativity cricut image collection and used one of the gorgeous layout cuts for my Autumn Days project.  The black outline cuts as a single overlay and then the background solid pieces are cut to provide color.  I loved how it turned out!!!!  I'm excited to try out a few more of the layouts in this collection.  You can link up a new project cut on with a cricut machine and see the BBTB2 design team projects over at the BBTB2 site.  Hope you have a wonderful week!
