Football Themed Badge Holder Mini Album

This is my football themed mini album for a swap on the Cricut message board. This is the first of three different themed albums I'll be making (Hopefully all this weekend).

I was completely out of my comfort zone with this one. I am not a football fan so I had a hard time wrapping my head around this one. I ended up taking the easy way out and used some Jolee's stickers and sports themed paper pack from We R Memory Keepers.

It is actually really cute paper. I'm not normally a sticker person but this set from Jolee's was perfect.

This element is all me. Using twill ribbon from Close to My Heart and a little $1 alphabet stamp set I found at Michael's I stamped on the ribbon with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Red Brick and Broken China. One ribbon says GO TEAM and the other says RAH RAH RAH.
The rest is just the various pages in the album. It's small, only 5 pages, but perfect for a mini album.

Notice how there are little "elements" on the edges of the pages? Yeah, the badge holders I bought at Staples.....all have "Staples" embossed on one side. we have strategically placed stickers to cover it up.
