Another heritage page

Continuing the theme of using some of my heritage photos, here is another page....

I made my own decorator paper using colonial white for the background and the stamps from the Lucky workshop to go in the last catalogue and Sweet Leaf and Crystal blue inks.  These are more photos from my fathers family on his mothers side.

Heritage pages

I have been working on scanning old family photos and gathering family tree information for a number of years.  Now it is time to scrap the photos and put it all together.  First step get the photos on the pages, I still need to finish the journalling, but that will come.  I used a old level one Silhoute paper pack along with the stickers all from Close to my Heart.
This is a collection of family photos from my Dad's family from before and after they immigrated to Canada in 1952 from Holland.

Happy Halloween

Another favourite layout from my weekend away scrapping, very simple layout, one sheet of cardstock, a great Close to my Heart stamp set (unfortunately discontinued) and liquid glass.  Another very fun to  play on layout.

Typeset two

This is another layout that I made using the typeset workshop to go set, again I altered the suggested layout, but had a lot of fun.  Childhood photos bring back so many memories,no matter how old the photos may be :)   I choose to not combine both of the pages together in one layout but made two individual pages, the second one is below.

Typeset layout

Just returned from a weekend away with daughter and friends scrapping.  Had a great time!  Got lots done, even better.  Thought I would share my favourite layout from this weekend, using the typeset paper pack and the Workshop to go kit.
I am working on attemping to get my childhood and our family photos scrapped, sometimes seems like a never ending challenge, but it is so satisfying to have some finished.  This set and layout was so fun to work on using the kit and the new Art Philosophy cricut cartridge, that was very useful during our crop.  I hope to post more in the coming days as time permits.
