There are 3 parts of family memory keeping that are part of the crafting/scrapbooking world. First is Living History, what is happening now, the trip to the zoo, last years family reunion etc. Second, memories from days gone by, our ancestors, where they came from and how their experiences helped to shape us into who we are today, and finally staying in touch with the family that we have now, but don't see as often. I would like to spend a little time each week on all 3 of these.
This is page 3 of my husbands Father's Day gift, the house was cut at 10 1/4" from the Handy Man cartridge, I cut the sentiment from Nifty Fifties at 2", the hearts are from Stretch Your Imagination, stretched and changed on Design Studio, so not any particular size, just stretched around until I liked them. Inside the heart is a copy of a journal entry of my husbands from the second time we were engaged (all part of the fun story behind the book I made for him) The words aren't anything private so I didn't blur them, but I am not sure if they are very readable anyway. I printed the outline for the journaling from my computer then colored in the words with my gel pens. I inked everything in a dark rusty color (I don't remember which ink, sorry) and added a few buttons for a little extra personality.
