Brothers & Sisters

April 14, 2018

Here is my Memory Keeping page for this week.  This page documents a photo of my Great Grandparents along with his brothers and Sister.  The photo is not great quality but it is a fantastic thing to have a wonderful photo of so many family members.  The photo was taken in 1923 when my grandmother was 16.

I used the gorgeous brick wall Pattern Party Decorative Mask to create a background across the top of 12″ x 12″ Very Vanilla card.  I used the Shimmery White Embossing Paste and boy does it shine.  Once the embossing paste was dry, I used a very light touch to add some Crumb Cake ink across the embossing.  I cut a piece of Daffodil Delight card using an old Stampin’ Up! Bigz Die and embossed it using the Basic Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  I attached a piece of Delightful Daisy Designer Series paper across the bottom of the page.  I punched a strip of Calypso Coral card using the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch which of course is only A4 length, so I cut it in half and attached it across the top of the designer series paper.  I attached my photo to a piece of Tranquil Tide card , leaving enough room to add the description of the families below it.  I cut two hearts from the same Designer Series Paper pack and attached them, the green striped heart is on dimensionals.  The printing was all done on my computer and cut into strips and attached to the top of the page.  The title has one end punched using the Triple Banner Punch.  I am loving how these pages are all coming together and that my children and grandchildren are gaining some insight into their ancestors.  It probably helps that my Dad lives close by, and so it is easy to relate that this is Dad’s Grandfather and family.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and that you get some Memory Keeping done yourself.

Bye for now,
