Soccer Treats

Today marks the first day of summer and I don't know about you, but I am so relieved. I think it will be finally time to sit and work on some crafts and ideas that have been brewing in my brain. Just so hard to find the time to make them all!! Over the next few days I will be posting goodies that I made for end of year treats. Teacher gifts as well as grad's and Dad's goodies. But first I want to share with you what I made for the kids on my son's soccer team. Very quick and easy~ see how I did everyone's names?? I used the Big Shot and the Sizzlits Decorative strip die called Billboard (114510) in no time at all using a variety of cardstock colors I had all the names spelt out and adhered using 2-way glue. So something like this would be great for party favors. Here are the remaining details:
Cardstock: whisper white, real red, basic black
Ink: basic black
Access: Sizzix Big Shot, Top Note Die, Dimensionals, Curly Label Punch
Stamp Set: Just Soccer
Here is a close up picture: I used the good ol' computer and printer for the teams information and then punched out using the Curly Label Punch.
I also made the coach and I (because they came out so darn cute) flower pins using some soccer themed fabric. I used the Big Shot and the Flower Folds Die (115970). These would also be great sewn on to a pony tail elastic maybe next year!!

Hope you all enjoy your summer and have time to get ink on your fingers and glitter in your hair!! Until next time~ Happy Stampin'!
