I meant to post these last weekend, but I needed to make a few revisions before sending them off in the mail. As I mentioned in this post, these pages will be part of a scrapbook that will be presented to my niece for her wedding. My hope is these will not only be a source of reference (with the family tree information) but enjoyment too.
The pages above were the only "masculine" pages I did. It showcases my grandfather and great grandfather. I kept the colors dark, but accented the pages with Baja Breeze seam binding for a splash of color. Other accents include Chocolate Chip 5/8" grosgrain ribbon and metal embellishments from the Hodgepodge Hardware sets. The seam binding was tied around three pewter jumbo eyelets which helped emphasize the masculine feel of the pages. The name title was created with the Sizzix Big Shot and the Stampin' Up! Serif Essentials Alphabet dies.
Contrary to the pages above, the next two pages were made to be feminine. These pages showcase my grandmother and great grandmother.
Again, I used the Sizzix Big Shot to help accent the pages. The Timeless Type Alphabet was the perfect size for the surnames. The names and accents were made with Rose Red card stock and then embellished with mini pearls. Hodgepodge Hardware was also used on these pages to identify the subjects in the photos.
Thanks for letting me share a bit of my history!
Stop back on Tuesday when I will share an excellent article about creating a focal point on your projects.
