Block Matting

Block matting is an easy way to get several photos onto one page.  Here I simply added larger mats to frame the page, offsetting the photo mat just slightly for interest and to balance out the weight of the page (due to the large end of the bat).  I cut the bat on my Sizzix Eclips machine from the School and Sports Cartridge and had my son sign it.

The patterned kraft paper is from the Basic Grey basics collection and the tiny black letter stickers are made by Making Memories. 

Here is a quick non-scrap project.  My sons attend Catholic School and my oldest's teacher wanted them to put book covers on their Religion books.  He said "Mom, that's your department" so I promised to keep it simple and boyish, but I couldn't help but add a touch of glitter!!  I used the Sizzix Bigz Ornate Cross and cut the font on my Cricut with the Blackletter Cartridge.  The Glitter paper is made my American Crafts - I used a color called "Charcoal" - it is nice and thick and sparkly. 

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!!
