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!!!
