February Memory Keeping

February 6, 2018

I love creating pages with the photos I have taken from different events and holidays but I am finding that as I get older, I am want to learn more about all the photos that my parents have and creating pages or even a book (if I get really enthusiastic).  So the page for this month’s class came about because I wanted to document this photo of my Great, Great Grandfather, William Plowright Gray.  Can you image losing that information?   I wouldn’t have a clue who it was without my Dad telling me.  He was born in Stepney in England and emigrated with his wife and at least one son to Australia.

So I started by adding some Crumb Cake re-inker to White Embossing Paste and randomly applying it to my page using one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.  I cut four pieces of Colour Theory Designer Series Paper – one in each colour – to add across the page.  Because the photo was sepia, I wanted to add some colour to the page and because William is smiling I wanted a happy page.  I created the banners for my title by printing onto Whisper White card and punched one end using the Triple Banner Punch before attaching to Crumb Cake card which I trimmed to match.  I also printed onto Whisper White card what information my Dad had given me about William.  It’s a simple page, but one that I love and hopefully during my Memory Keeping Classes I can document more information about my family history.

So if you are interested in documenting the important things in your life, and you live in the Narangba area of Brisbane, why not join me for this class.  The classes are going to be held on a Sunday from 10.30am to around 2.30pm.  You can check out all the information on my Classes and Workshop page.  Please note that you do need to bring along your own basic took kit including adhesives.  I will supply the product to complete the page or you can use it on your own projects, the choice is yours.  You can use my stamp sets and accessories to complete your projects.  I will also provide morning and afternoon tea and plenty of tea and coffee.  You will need to bring along your own lunch.

Please remember that space is limited, so let me know as soon as you can if you wish to attend our first class for the year on the 25th February.

Bye for now,
