Summertime!

What does Summer mean to you?  Vacations, beaches, swimming pools, shorts, flip flops, etc.  For some it's about baseball games, sunflower seeds and concession stands.   I miss those days, some of which included multiple games, heat, dirt.....well maybe I don't miss all of it. 

Now that my son isn't playing baseball anymore, which saddens me at times, I do have friends with little ones starting the adventure of traveling teams and school ball.  From my experience (from a mom's viewpoint) I enjoyed traveling baseball so much more than school ball. 

When my sons played ball, I didn't own a silhouette machine.  If I had, I would have so made these for myself.  Maybe if we catch a Red Hawk's game or a New York Yankee game sometime.  These were made for my sweet friend/co-worker, Chrissy.  Her little guy started his first traveling team and is keeping them very busy.  I included some for her toes and her son's number and one with the team name. 


 
Isn't this awesome?  You could make a cute package (with your silhouette of course) to put the nail art in and give them as a gift to a baseball mom.  Wouldn't all the team moms love these?

I used the Silhouette brand red vinyl. 
The cut settings are blade 2, speed 8, thickness 9 or choose vinyl under your cut settings. 
The squares around the stitching are for easy weeding.
You may need to resize them or simply clip them to fit your nails. 
 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great and safe summer!!

  2. Tanya, I think this is so cool! What a great way to embellish your nails. And even if baseball isn't your thing, it gets the creative juices running for other ideas!

    1. Thank you Kristy! Yep, I agree...I've done basketball too. I want to do some monogram ones for myself, if I ever get the time.

  4. Oh my gosh, these are just too cute! I have to do this since my sons are both in their 3rd round of play-off games this weekend. Would you be willing to share your basketball file too? Both my kids are basketball fanatics too so I would love to try that as well. When you did these, did you put a top coat over the vinyl or did they stick good without it?.

    2. I just cut the baseball template this morning and they came out so cute! I can't wait to show them off at the ball field today. Thank you so much for sharing your great work.....love them! Oh, and thank you for the advice about the top coat. I was guessing I would need to do something but didn't know if it would mess up the vinyl stickers.
