BBTB2 – Sports

The challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2 for the next two weeks is sports.

After my daughter graduated from high school, I decided to learn how to officiate Volleyball because I loved going to her games.  This marks my 10th season of doing it and I decided to make a layout.


Our local paper took a lot of pictures of a game I officiated between two county teams and posted them on their website.  I chose some of the pictures that included me and printed them out.  My son gave me a book of layout sketches last Christmas and one had a circle in the middle that seemed perfect for a volleyball.  The volleyball, whistle and volleyball logo all came from the cartridge Sports Mania.  The whistle had the word “coach” attached to it, so I sliced most of the word off both layers and after it was cut out, trimmed off the rest with my scissors.  The curved title at the top and the 2020 were the font Dom-casual.  I don’t use the curve function very often and I really should as it makes it easier to space things along a circle.  The OHSAA (which is the Ohio High School Athletic Association) logo was downloaded from the web and then I used the print & cut feature.  The patterned paper was Teresa Collins’ Sports Edition II.  I also used some washi tape to accent.

Here is the whistle cut after I sliced off most of the word, but before I hand trimmed it.


Link your own sports project using your Circut machine over at Bitten by the Bug 2 by November 8.  All of the designers have some great inspiration for you. – Denise
