The Story: Another year and there’s another football season to document.  It’s challenging to come up with ways to display season tickets, a fridge magnet, photos and other bits of ephemera.

Previously: See my 2004 football season layouts here and here.

Stats: I designed a little card with the season win-loss record, the name of the coach, and the names of the quarterbacks.  I’ve been including this information on my football pages since I started going to games in 2000 and it adds great context.

Lots of Newspaper: Every year I decide to save different things.  This year I had a lot of newspaper articles to work with.  I spaced them throughout the pages and they cover some very key events.  Hindsight is always fabulous because I already know that these articles would have big implications a few years later.

Write in the Dates: When I use newspaper articles, somewhere around the article I’ll write the date in very small writing.  It’s probably the archivist in me, but I like to have record of when the piece was published.

Vertical Stripes: I added some flair by cutting eighth-inch stripes out of blue, gold, and white cardstock and glued them down the side of the page.  I like how it adds a little something without being distracting.

That’s it, a whopping 4 layouts for the season (not including the Big Game, that will come later!).

Scrapbook Layout: Football Season, Part 2

Football Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerFootball Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerFootball Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerThere’s more football!

These are the second two pages that come after the ones I posted a couple of days ago.  There isn’t a headline because these are just part of the set.

Same theme: keepsake heavy.  This is where I put our actual season tickets (see left page at bottom).  I also added some text summarizing the season.

Like last time, hopefully the image below helps sort out everything I managed to glue down to the page:

Scrapbook Layout: Football Season, Part 1

I hope so, I have a lot of football to cover in some pages that have a lot of stuff going on.

Football seasons are keepsake-heavy.  There is no way around it and I like it that way.  It’s a challenge to get everything on the page and have it look cohesive.  Still, I love the busy look because football season is a busy part of our lives!

A feature I like to have on any football season page is a box that shows the win-loss record and who the coach and quarterback were.  It took me for-ev-er to find a combination of fonts I liked.

I’m trying something new here: instead of trying to explain what each thing is in the picture, I created an image that explains it.  It’s quite a lot of stuff!

Football Scrapbook Layout by Natalie ParkerWhat do you think?  Yes, it’s a lot!
