Teri’s Thing O-My-Jigs, Soccer’s a kick

Yup, Soccer’s a kick. My boy plays soccer, almost 8 years now and I still didnt discover the kick of it. When he was 6 we stood along the field at 8 in the morning on saturday, what a blessing. Everyone told me that when he would get older the times will be later during the day. Well he’s a C player now, and still not later, last week we had to  round up at 7.30 cause we needed to play out at another soccer club, oh the joy of parenting. But Jeroen loves soccer, Dh has been his coach and trainer for 6 years now, so DH has 13 kids amongst his wings. Anyways when I saw the announcement of Teri’s Thing O-My-Jigs Soccer’s a kick I just had to pick it up.

Checkout went great, but I missed download links in my order after payment. I did receive an email with the download links, but my downloads still are not displayed in my order history. Maybe a shop glitch. But well download went fast and rapid, and it was great to see that the TOU and previews are not divided in every zip file.

 My Own thinking of the kit:

Yes the papers are of great texture. The grass paper and the paper of the field are surely my favorites, There’s a lot of variety in colors and patterns and that is a big plus. The wordart strips that I did not use are wonderful I love the fact that there’s an empty 1. The old sign elements look perfect and I did use 1 of those in my layout. However most of the elements seem to have an epoxy sticker effect and the buttons seem a little fake to me. They have an outer bevel edge that does not attracked me personally. My favorite element in this kit is for sure the net and the field journal board, they are both amazing and I am certain they will be used more often for my soccer layouts. The shirt I used is from the kit, but I recolored it to fit my boys team colors, and that was a very easy job.

Here’s my layout with this kit, and I think it’s gonna be a 2 pager. I do not see myself making an entire album with this kit, but 4 different pages must be possible. And between the other soccer kits that are out there, this will make a great addition for variety and mixxing and matching.

journaling and credits page:

Playing soccer is your passions for a long time. You can play all positions and always do your best during matches.
