The Heritage Scrappers Club started in 2017 after many requests for collections to help scrap ancestry and genealogy pages. Each year I take requests from members of the Heritage Scrappers Facebook group and create a variety of collection to help you scrap your family history. This is the 2020 series. You can see each collection in my store in the Heritage Scrappers Category.
August 2020 Matriarch
Matriarch by ADB Designs is the companion to the Heritage Collection: Patriarch, and is dedicated to scrapping the women in our family trees. With its soft palette of peach and melon, robin egg blue, chocolate brown, taupe, and butter yellow and lots of feminine elements, this is the perfect collection for scrapping the women in your life, whether family or friends.
July 2020 Patriarch
Patriarch by ADB Designs is all about the generations of men that we scrap in our Family Heritage Albums. The large majority of scrapbooking kits tend to be more feminine in palette and contents, including my own. Though I try to always include masculine items in most collections I make, I do feel it is important to have a collection (or two or three) that focus on the men in our lineage.
The browns, blues and accents of green in the Patriarch palette are just right for masculine album pages. You could indeed create more feminine pages with this collection if you wished; however, it is full of masculine elements and will provide you many creative hours scrapping pages and pages of men.
June 2020 Through The Lens of Time
Through The Lens Of Time by ADB Designs is a Heritage collection full of all you need to create many pages for your family history albums. The palette of blues and browns with touches of gold and green is perfect for all your ancestors and does not restrict you just one time period or era. Beautiful flowers and foliage, vintage frames, antique jewelry, old buttons and fashions, lots of lace and ribbons AND more are ready to provide you inspiration and fun as you record your family history.
May 2020 A New Nation Expands
In 1803 the United States was a new country with radical new ideas that were transforming the rest of the world as well as its new citizens. The new nation, however, was only a small portion of the North American land mass and its population was starting to swell. There was a strong desire for new land to cultivate.
Federalists and Republicans were at odds about fundamental governing issues as well as about the feasibility of purchasing new land. Napoleon offered the new United States the land called Louisiana, in return for 50 million francs (15 million US); President Thomas Jefferson and then secretary of state James Madison, were able to convince congress to ratify the deal and westward expansion began in earnest.
April 2020 Fragments of Memory
Sometimes I need a vintage-y collection to help me scrap general pages in my Heritage Albums. This collection, Fragments of Memory, is intended to fill that need. Filled with flowers and foliage, antiques and ephemera, ribbons, and fasteners it will help you create many pages too. The soft palette of greens, rose, seafoam and gray are a perfect foil for the more intense palettes used in my other collections.
March 2020 Age of Sail
The Age of Sail by ADB Designs is a Heritage Collection created to recognize the significant period of time when sailing ships ruled the seas — 1571 to 1862. Our ancestors served in the navies of the world powers as well as traveled to new countries and new continents aboard sailing ships.
February 2020 Horse & Carriage Days
Horse and Carriage Days by ADB Designs is a heritage collection to help you when scrapping multiple time periods and generations. The rich palette of blues, golds, green, red, russet, and bronze are perfect for accenting your black and white or sepia-toned photos. With plenty of scrapping men as well as families & children. Filled with a mix of rugged elements from the old west and a massive stash of florals and natural trinkets, you’ll be able to create both masculine and feminine pages for your family photo books.
January 2020 Doughboy
Indelibly tied to Americans, “Doughboys” became the most enduring nickname for the troops of General John Pershing’s American Expeditionary Forces, who traversed the Atlantic to join war-weary Allied armies fighting on the Western Front in World War I. From the web page: “The Great War”, as WWI was known at the time, marked the first time in history the United States sent soldiers abroad to defend foreign soil.
Over 4.7 million men and women served in the regular U.S. forces, national guard units, and draft units with about 2.8 million serving overseas. There were 53,402 killed in action, 63,114 deaths from disease and other causes, and about 205,000 wounded.
