    • Repeat Basketball-Theme Shapes for Emphasis

      Design by Janna Wilson

      Using the basketball in her photos as inspiration, Janna played up the circular theme by journaling inside paper circles and choosing circle-pattern papers and embellishments.

      Editor's Tip: To give sports photos extra oomph, frame them in a few freehand lines and doodles as Janna did here.


      SOURCES: Cardstock: Making Memories (kraft), Hobby Lobby (black). Patterned paper, stickers: SEI. Font: Plastique off the Internet. Chipboard accents: Making Memories ("game"), Heidi Swapp ("got"). Rub-ons: Daisy D?s Paper Co. (arrows with words), Jenni Bowlin Studio (all other). Photos: Susan Shisler.

    • Use Unique Shapes as Journaling Blocks

      Design by Cindy Tobey

      Instead of using traditional basketball shapes, Cindy traced a hand to imitate shooting hoops. She emphasized the basketball in each photo by encircling it in a dotted ring.

      Editor's Tip: Use creative shapes as a canvas for journaling. Cindy filled in her hand shape with a description about her daughter's quest to make baskets.


      SOURCES: Patterned paper: We R Memory Keepers. Transparency: Office Max. Fonts: Uncle Charles (journaling), Hairbrained ("baskets") by Autumn Leaves. Sticker: EK Success. Ink: Clearsnap. Rub-ons: Doodlebug Design. Paint: Making Memories. Buttons: Autumn Leaves. Floss: DMC. Software: Adobe Photoshop Elements 4.0. Digital elements: Round & Round Circle Brushes by Rhonna Farrer.

    • Scrapbook Photos of a Basketball Tradition

      Design by Shannon Zickel

      Colorful papers and embellishments capture the excitement of Shannon's NCAA basketball tournament tradition with her family. Three photos capture bracket-buster moments, while a creative title and stamping design complete the page.

      Editor's Tip: Use a mixture of materials to create an interesting title. Shannon combined stickers and rub-ons to complement her March Madness theme.


      SOURCES: Patterned paper: American Crafts (circles, stripes), Scenic Route Paper Co. (polka dot). Stickers: Scrapworks ("March"), American Crafts ("2005," "m"). Rub-ons: Doodlebug Design ("-adness"). Stamps: FontWerks. Ink: Stampin' Up! (orange), StampCraft (all other). Pen: American Crafts.

    • Create a Quick Collage with Basketball Photos

      Design by Shannon Zickel

      Shannon scrapbooked basketball photos using a quick and easy collage design. She framed four photos with bright strips of patterned paper.

      Editor's Tip: To make a simple photo collage, crop and combine images in photo-editing software, then print as one sheet.


      SOURCES: Patterned paper: KI Memories. Stickers: American Crafts (letters); Love, Elsie (epoxy). Rub-ons: Love, Elsie. Pen: American Crafts.

    • Alter Focus to Capture Creative Photos

      Design by Alison Beachem

      Alison used a wide aperture to capture this interesting shot of a sharply focused basketball and a blurry background.

      Editor's Tip: When using this technique, keep photos large. Alison's over-sized photo plays up the distinction between the blurry background and sharp foreground.


      SOURCES: Photographer: Alison Beachem. Camera: Canon EOS 10D. ISO: 400. Exposure: 1/4000. Aperture: f2.8 (layout). Lighting: Natural light, evening. Patterned paper: Scenic Route Paper Co. (multicolor stripe), KI Memories (letter, black stripe). Font: Typewriter by EK Success. Rub-ons, stickers: Making Memories. Die cuts: Autumn Leaves. Paint: Delta.

    • Personalize a Basketball Page with Memorabilia

      Design by Melanie Bauer

      Melanie scrapbooked all aspects of a college basketball game in this layout -- from the players to the cheerleaders to the scoreboard. She used school colors as inspiration for her color scheme, then tied her tickets to the page with ribbon.

      Editor's Tip: To keep memorabilia safe, scan the items you want to include on a scrapbook page instead of using originals.


      SOURCES: Cardstock: Canson. Vellum, rub-ons: KI Memories. Stickers: American Crafts. Brad: Lasting Impressions for Paper. Ribbon: Me and My Big Ideas.
