Gameday Saturdays:Jillibean Soup

It's Saturday!  For me, Saturdays during the fall would not be complete without the opportunity to cheer on my beloved Ohio State Buckeye football team.  I grew up in Columbus, Ohio - home to the Buckeyes, so to say I 'bleed' scarlet and grey, is an understatement!  Today will be a busy one, and I don't know that I'll get to tune into the actual game, but I'll be keeping tabs on the score one way or another! 
To celebrate my favorite fall Saturdays, I thought I'd share with you a page on the subject.  We have loads of photos decked out in our Buckeye gear and/or cheering on the team from the stands.  I thought it would be fun, to combine some of those pictures from over the years onto one page.

Supplies used: Jillibean Soup - patterned paper, stickers, diecuts; American Crafts - cardstock; Studio Calico - wood veneer; Michaels - vellum; Pebbles - patterned paper; Other - washi tape, Veteran Typewriter font, Pacifico font, machine stitching.

I love my silhouette for making fun, layered titles like this one.  The 'gameday' portion of the title was cut twice.  Once from patterned paper and a second time from white cardstock.  By layering the two together, but slightly offsetting the white under layer, a shadow is created.  The shadow helps that portion of the title to stand apart from the background patterned paper that it sits upon.  I used one of my favorite cursive fonts - Pacifico, to cut the remainder of the title out of vellum. 

I've had this Brutus Buckeye paper for a long time, and unfortunately can't remember who it's manufactured by.  It's the perfect compliment to this page, alongside the Jillibean football helmet sticker.

That's all I've got for today.  I've got soccer games to attend and a football game to keep tabs on! ;) Wishing you all a crafting weekend!  Go Bucks!


  1. Absolutely love everything about this page Jackie! I need to try stitching a vellum word over a title.
