This HOP IS CLOSED!
I'm excited to be a part of this small but hoping to grow bigger blog hop featuring Sizzix' eclips machine. Hoping you'll enjoy your stops and the projects created using the Sizzix eclips and files from a broad group of designers and shops.
I chose to use a file from a recent release by Mary Rudakis at SVGCuts.com. The Game Day Marquee Signs Set is so much fun and for my Baseball fanatic hubby, it's a perfect addition to his growing collection of Baseball decor on the walls and shelves in his space. The title is my own design and you can download a copy of the file in SVG form here.
I used some SU 12x12" stock and the Grand Slam Mini Theme Collection from Echo Park. Some red floss for the stitching AND Old Paper distress ink by Ranger. Scraps for the title. The eclips2 and eCal2 software made matting and cutting a breeze!
Use a good quick drying glue as adhesive. I used Scotch Quick dry for this project. It's a good quality glue and still gives you a bit of time to adjust if needed before the bond is secure.
Following the excellent assembly tutorial here, Mary made assembly EZ!.... Assemble your title and using some dimensional pop up dots, secure to the front of the baseball.
Add the lights. Heidi Swap has several kits available for use with Marquee items. You'll need a set of 24 lights for this project. Don't forget those triple A batteries!
T caught a glimpse of this and gave it 2 thumbs up!
