Baseball Door Decor

Happy July!!!  Lori here from Scrappin' My Stress Away with a fun baseball project today!

Our 8U Papillion Storm Chaser select baseball team had an amazing season.  Our record was 36 - 3 and we won state last weekend.  We qualified for nationals later this month and I made some door decorations for each team member and coach.
Here is the team photo with Kyle (from SouthPark) our good luck mascot.  Kyle was won in a claw machine in between game 1 and game 2. 
Here is a photo of Tanner with the team plaque and game ball.

I used my cameo to design our door decor.  
I started with a shape of home plate and sized it just under 12" wide.  I want to put this in Tanner's scrap book later.

Our team partners with the Minor League Omaha Storm Chasers (Kansas City Royals) and we use their logo.  I traced the Storm Chaser logo (which is only ok if I don't sell it) and cut it out.  I cut out the black and white layers in cardstock and the red laces in vinyl.

I found this image of a baseball player in Pinterest and traced it.  I cut it out of black cardstock.  I used Freshman font for the boy's name (or nickname) and number.  I cut them out in blue cardstock.  
I lined up and sized each name and number on my cameo mat to fit the home plate shape.  I saved the negative cuts to use as a template in order to get the letters on just perfect!!
Here is Tanner's sign.

I wanted something a little different for the coaches so I cut out a 12" wide baseball cap. 
Because our hats are all blue I just cut out one layer.  I cut out Coach Mike in white vinyl and transferred it to the bill.

Had I known I was going to make the coaches signs different from the rest, I may have made the logo smaller.  I like it anyway!!

Thank you Sheila for having me on your blog today!!!  Go Chasers!!!

Another great page for Tanner. He is so going to love looking through these books when he is older!
