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.
Page 4 of my husbands mini-book. The house is from the Handy Man cartridge, the sentiment was cut at 2" from Nifty Fifties, the border for the picture is from Mini Monograms, and the hearts are cut from my scraps using my Fiskars heart punch. I stitched the hearts and border to the picture in white, except the white hearts which were stitched in red. The sentiment has blue gel pen stitching and red glitter glue for the hair tie on the sillouette, I used the same glitter glue to make the dots on the picture border. I printed the outline of the words for the journaling on my computer and colored them in with my gel pens. This was my first scrapbooking experience, and the biggest project I have ever tried and I have had more fun than I would have imagined!
