Vagabond – My New Manly Scrapbook Collection


Genealogists often encounter the ancestor or collateral family member who lived a life different enough from the rest of the family (or even the community at large) to be noticed.  The ancestor who marched to a different drum, if you will. Sometimes the appellation “black sheep” would be appropriate, sometimes “drifter” or “adventurer” world be more correct.

The Vagabond Collection strives to offer the family historian some fun tools to scrap these special ancestors. It is NOT limited to genealogists, nor will you be limited to vintage photographs. The palette is darker and more “manly”, just in time for Father’s Day.

Come Sail Away – A Romantic Scrapbook Collection

Come Sail Away – A Romantic Scrapbook Collection

The Perfect Romantic Collection: Come Sail Away is feminine, a bit frilly, full of flowers, greenery, and lace.  Tattered vintage elements mixed with modern watercolors make this an easy to go to collection to create a photo book of the little princess in your life or a scrapbook page or card for Mother’s Day, anniversary, or any page where romance is the focus.

AND I love the song Come Sail Away sung by Styx

I’m sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea
I’ve got to be free, free to face the life that’s ahead of me
On board, I’m the captain, so climb aboard
We’ll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I’ll try, oh Lord, I’ll try to carry on

I look to the sea, reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We live happily forever, so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we’ll try best that we can to carry on

A gathering of angels appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope, and this is what they said

They said come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me

Wind Song Perfect For Scrapping Your Native American Ancestors

Wind Song Perfect For Scrapping Your Native American Ancestors

If you have Native American ancestors then you know it is a real challenge to find reliable documentation and unless your family was awesome at keeping photos that might be a daunting task as well.  If you have the story, it may be all you ever have but it shouldn’t go when you do.  If you’ve turned over every stone and all you have is the story then make the best of it.

The April Mixology at GDS might be just what you need.  As soon as I saw the colors I knew which direction I was going.  I was inspired by my own family history and re-runs of great John Wayne westerns, Little House On The Prairie, and Bonanza danced in my head.  I knew I wanted to create a collection that focused on Native American culture but I couldn’t quite let go of the immigrant who came and weathered storms to make a better life.

One of the beautiful things about being a designer is I don’t have to choose only one.  I fed my Native American inspiration and then partnered with Patty to create the immigrant version for Over The Fence Designs.

Both sets are based on late 1800’s to early 1900’s.  Both set coordinate beautifully so you can easily mix and match.  Both sets are on sale right now for only $1.20 each for a short time.

Do you have Native American Ancestors?  What has been your biggest challenge in trying to document their story?  Did you give up or are you still committed to your search?

Earn The Spring In My Step Mini This Month When You Join Us In The April Quote Challenge

Every month I host the quote challenge at Go Digital Scrapbooking and every month I am impressed beyond words with the creativity of scrapbooking women.  This month is no exception, and it’s still very early in the month.  I won’t spill all of the beans here (at least not today) but I will share my quote for April.

 “Ah, how good it feels!  The hand of an old friend”  ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I’ve always loved quotes.  We all need a little boost from time to time and quotes are a great way to sprinkle a little positive thought or humor into your day.  Quotes can also give us a little boost on our pages.  Sometimes they’re used as the title, other times they work beautifully as part of the journaling but they always add a little something to build on or build around and make our pages better.

Pull out your photos of old friends or new ones and join us this month.  We’ll all have fun.  You’ll make a great page.  And….you’ll get a sweet participation gift at the end.
