All Sports Blog Hop Day 1

Welcome to the All Sports Blog Hop hosted by Carla over at This blog hop is to celebrate all the things we love about Sports. This is a two day blog hop so please come back tomorrow to see all the projects the talented ladies in this hop have made. Make sure that you comment on everyone’s posts and follow everyone to be eligible for the Candy that was donated by our fabulous sponsor make sure you hop over and say hello there too.

My Project for today is a Homemade Smash/ Memory book that I made for my upcoming trip to the Indy 500.

I started with a Composition note book and I ended up cutting the paper out of it and using it separate from the cover. I used the Cricut Craft Room software to make the Indy and 500. I got the flags off the Paper Dolls for the Everyday Cricut Cartridge and I paper pieced the flags together.

I used my Zig two way pen to put the layers together

I cut white card stock to 9 1/4 X 7 Inches and the rounded the corners. I used glimmer mist on this page. I used my bind it all to bind at the top and bottom of my pages and then I hot glued the binding into the cover.

I stamped out the name of the group I'm going to the races with and then outlined them with a black pen.

At the bottom I'm posting a Video so you can see all the pages.

Thanks for hopping by make sure you hop on over to Cathie's Blog to see what she's made for you!!! And come back tomorrow for the second day~ Carla

  5. What a great hop! I love your smash book for the Indy 500. Go Mario!! Love the colors.

  6. Just a question. I was doing your bloghop and a couple stops didn't have anything on them relating to your hop. Did I not go to the right place?

  7. I noticed the same thing, I couldn't find three stops that had anything related to this hop. I'm also wondering if I'm clicking on something wrong.

  8. Sorry Guys some of the blogs didn't get updated, You did nothing wrong!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!!

  9. Aw, what a fun project! I love how you "repurpose" things. Such a great habit! I do a lot of that too. It's a super fun way to get creative. This will be a fun album for all of your memories. :)
