Read All About It celebrates the work we do researching for our ancestors in newspaper articles, pension files, muster rolls, boxes of letters, books and countless other written sources. There are plenty of flowers and foliage, of course, but there are also lots of ephemera, journaling cards, tags, labels and some wonderful vintage furniture & household pieces for added interest.

Layout Inspiration Featuring Read All About It by ADB Designs

Read All About It Featured Layout

The Read All About It Featured Layout is The Society Pages by Maureen.  I love the featured photos and how she stitched over one of the photos.  As always, her clusters are gorgeous but I think my favorite part is the wedding announcement.   This represents the work we all put in to search out the documentation we need to scrap pages that provide accurate information for future generations. 

The Read All About It Bundle & Individual Pieces are on Sale for 30% – 55% through 6/23/19 in these stores.

Scrap Your Vintage Wedding Photos With Love’s Patina

Scrap Your Vintage Wedding Photos With Love’s Patina

June is the time for weddings.  I have 2 wedding invitations on my calendar for 2019.  Weddings are all about new beginnings, the promise of a long and happy future together, and hopefully a joyous occasion for all.  Weddings today are very different than they were when our parents and grandparents “tied the knot”.  

Weddings are one of my favorite things to scrap.  Regardless of how much planning goes in up front, there is always at least one crisis before the day is over.  One moment or perhaps one hour of heightened stress where someone thinks everything might fall apart any second and then it’s gone as quickly as it came.  

These are the best stories.  These are the stories that may not make it to the next generation if we don’t do an outstanding job of telling them now.

 

Love’s Patina was the March Heritage Scrappers Mega.  It was designed to help you scrap your genealogy wedding stories but it’s also perfect for any wedding on your calendar.  It is filled with elegant elements and soft colors which makes it perfect to scrap any formal occasion.  

If vintage makes your heart beat fast, you’re going to love Love’s Patina.

It is truly never easy to choose only one layout.  I love them all.  Each and every one!  I finally decided on this page by Pia.  I love lace, the touches of black, and the typewriter font she used to tell the story.

Everything You Need To Scrap Your Santa Fe Trail Family Story

Everything You Need To Scrap Your Santa Fe Trail Family Story

I was born in the small Kansas town of Council Grove. Perhaps some of my love of history comes from being surrounded by an abundance of Historical Markers (21 of them) and discussion of the past as if it were just yesterday.  

Council Grove was named for a large grove of hardwood trees that offered shelter from the Kansas heat and cold. The stand of trees next to the Neosho River was a place to gather for Native Americans and later for travelers heading west.  The town was named after an agreement between European Americans and the Osage Nation. The agreement allowed settlers’ wagon trains to pass through the area and proceed onto Santa Fe.  Council Grove was the last community on the Santa Fe trail (before Santa Fe) for many years and was the place travelers restocked their supplies and repaired their wagons. There are a total of 13 sites there listed on the National Register of Historic Places: The Last Chance Store, Hays House Restaurant, Post Office Oak,  Council Oak, Custer Elm and more.

The Santa Fe trail began primarily as a trade route. Mexico had just gained independence from Spain and the inhabitants of the southwest were anxious for trade with Americans, and vice versa. Pioneering settlers also followed the trail, adding to the populations of Texas, Colorado, future Arizona & New Mexico and California.

Here are some excellent resources to learn more about the Santa Fe Trail

Santa Fe Trail Featured Layout

I choose a featured layout for each collection but it is NEVER EASY!  This week I selected the Bandelier National Monument layout by Poki.  I thought the title tabs were a very creative way to title each of the photos and the vase with flowers and greenery gave this page depth and interest.

Scrapbook Your Newborn Stories, Old or New, With The Bygone Baby Heritage Bundle

Scrapbook Your Newborn Stories, Old or New, With The Bygone Baby Heritage Bundle

Turn Those Baby Photos Into A Cherished Memory

Whether you are a long time genealogist or a new grandparent, most of us have a stash of baby photos just waiting to be scrapped.  Waiting for the story to be told.  Maybe waiting for the perfect kit.  Bygone Baby was designed to help you turn your family baby stories into cherished family keepsakes.

Gently aged elements make Bygone Baby a beautiful choice for scrapping photos of your grandparents or your grandchildren.  Bright pops of color work beautifully with black and white or sepia photos.

The bundle includes a fun banner alpha, clusters, journal cards, masks, two sets of papers, flourishes, and a mega pack of elements so you have everything you need for a page or an entire photo book.

Bygone Baby was the December Mega for my Heritage Scrappers Club.  Members also received some Heritage Resources to help you create unique elements for your family story.  These are also available in my stores as an add on purchase.

Pick up a FREE SAMPLER of my current Heritage Scrapper’s Club Mega on my Facebook Page and I have some bonus, coordinating gifts scattered around my social media and stores to help you start or finish your projects faster.  Download the blog freebie below.

Bygone Baby Featured Layouts

I usually feature one layout by a creative team member but this week there are two.  Dana used the banner alphas to start an alphabet book.  I think it is so precious!  This would make a beautiful keepsake but imagine adding a few photos of fruit or animals and turning this into a learning book.

The Complete Bygone Baby Collection and the Coordinating Heritage Resource Products Are On SALE for 35% – 55% Off through 03/03/19 in these stores.
