The Story: Gathering all my pictures and ephemera from going to Giants games in 2006.

Tracking the History of the Ballpark: The ballpark is always changing.  The new name of the ballpark shows on the tickets.  The pictures show new changes inside the park: adding a Build-a-Bear Workshop and renaming the splash landing in right field.  I love how these pages show the passing of time.

Still Keeping it Interesting: It is challenging to scrapbook the same type of event every year.  This year, I got everything on one page (’04 and ’05 are two pages each).  I thought it was going to look too cluttered but I think everything fit together very nicely.

Team Logo: I traced it and cut it out with the Silhouette program.  I’m not making it available here for download because it’s trademarked but I believe my personal use of it is okay.  You can trace your own sports logos using Silhouette Studio, just don’t try to give them away or sell them (this isn’t legal advice, just my opinion).

Keeping it Interesting: As long as we still keep going to Giants games, I’ll still be coming up with a new way to scrapbook it every year.  It’s kind of refreshing actually — I know I can try something different this year without it being the end-all-be-all.  There’s always next year!

Small Headline: I struggled with this page for a while.  It clicked when I realized I didn’t need a huge headline.  I designed a small one and glued it over top of one of the photos.

Scrapbooking an Autograph: That’s Omar Vizquel’s autograph on the back of my ticket.  He was a great player and I hope he makes it into the Hall of Fame someday (he won 11 Gold Gloves).  I thought for a while about whether I should scrapbook it or keep it in some safe place.  Said safe place would be in a box in the closet and not on display.  Whatever.  If it’s in the scrapbook people may actually see it.

Scrapbook Layout: New York Scrapook, National Baseball Hall of Fame

Cooperstown Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerCooperstown Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerCooperstown Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerCooperstown Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerThe Story: Wherein Mr. P and I rented a car in NYC and drove upstate to Cooperstown to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum.  It was my first ever experience with toll roads, but that’s not really part of this story.  We spent a day and a half going through the exhibits.

Inspiration: None.  I needed a two page layout to fit everything.  I decided to make the pictures on the left look kind of like polaroids, mostly so the captions would fit.  I added a statement picture on the right with us in our Giants shirts in front of the museum.

More Pictures from in a Museum:  This was before I really had a sense of what I should and shouldn’t bother taking pictures of in a museum.  All the exhibits were so cool though!  Most of my pictures turned out dark or blurry and these were the best ones I scraped together.

Earlier: Title Page, Central Park, Yankee Game, Museums, Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island, Times Square, Ground Zero.

San Francisco Giants Scrapbook PagesSan Francisco Giants Scrapbook PagesSan Francisco Giants Scrapbook PagesSan Francisco Giants Scrapbook PagesAh, my favorite boys of summer, the San Francisco Giants.

I took all my Giants-related stuff for that year and put it together on two pages.

It’s a mix of tickets, other keepsakes and photos together to make one unit.

The left page has tickets and keepsakes from Until There’s a Cure day at the ballpark.  The Giants were the first professional sports team to host an AIDS benefit game and have been doing so annually since 1994.

Also on the left is a picture of the front of the ballpark.  The park has been through many name changes, so I wanted to capture what the name of the park was at that time.

The right page has tickets and items from when Barry Bonds hit his 700th home run (hint: we were there!).  I added some text on the bottom right of the page to tell the story of that game.

I love sports layouts, it’s so easy to pick a color scheme!
