Heritage 7

Here is the last page I finished this weekend. I think it is my favourite one yet! I used the new River Rock paper with the Cranberry crisp paper and ink. I used the baroque motifs stamp set and used my cuttlebug to emboss the vellum and cut the title letters.

Preview stuff is here!

It finally arrived! The SU stuff that I ordered out of the preview catty. It is so great. I like the new In Colours more than I thought I would. Things are always better in person than in a picture. I ordered the pick a petal, baroque motif, hugs and wishes and holidays and wishes stamps. I ordered the multipack of the new in colour papers, the soft sky patterned paper, ink, and the pomegranite and blue bayou inks. Now I wish I had the river rock ink pad too. I like it much more now that I have seen the paper in person. The new circle rhinestone brads are awesome too! I have made a few cards (pictured in background). Now I just have to get my hands on the new SU Catalog. I can't wait to see all the new sets in it.

I love the large flourish in the baroque motif set. It is really pretty for backgrounds on my scrapbook pages. It will be very pretty embossed too. I wasn't too sure about the pick a petal set, but I have seen a few ideas and have made a few cards of my own.

This page is of another great grandmother. I had the opportunity to get to know her a little. She was born in 1898 and lived until 2001. When I attended college, I would go to her apartment to visit her and she would make dinner for us. She was in her 90's and she still lived in her own apartment. A few times we went downtown to the city centre mall in Sudbury. The photo in this page is of her in 1952. I love it.

This is another page done with the same great grandmother later in life with her husband. I love these new soft sky designer papers from Stampin' Up. It goes really well with the black and white photos and the black cardstock.

I have been working on these older black and white photos again for my heritage album. This is my great grandmother when she was around 17. I never had the opportunity to meet her. She was a beautiful lady.

Heritage page3

This page uses the pallette o prints patterned paper from Stampin' Up. The black and amythest colour scheme really go well with black and white photos. It is hard to see in the photo, but there is a corner doodle stamped in white ink on the lower left corner.

Here is a page I made tonight. I am loving these black and white photos. This picture includes two of my Grandmothers brothers and their dad. I am using the K&Company Peabody scrap pad for most of this album so far.

Heritage page 1

A few weeks ago, I went to a Saturday night crop at Anything Goes and decided this was the time to work on some older black and white pictures of my parents and grandparents when they were younger. It is so fun to work with the black and white photos. Here is a page using Stampin' Up's Au Chocolat paper. I like how it turned out. I love the brown and white patterned papers.
