We have some fabulous ideas for you today with all the goodies we collect in our stashes, which by the way is a whole lot of good things.
So for my project i started with this Tim Holtz folder made of kraft heavy weight cardstock and i created a kind of family keepsake to hold all the neat things we have of our grandmother that just passed away this summer. She made it to be 100 and they had an amazing party for her and it was so fun but sadly she will be missed by all of us. Especially me because she loved to craft too :)
Products for the front: Spellbinders: Oval Floral, Sprigs and Majestic Oval, Prima flowers, Maja papers, Glass Bead Glitter gel from Faber Castell (it's my favorite thing) and the Grove tool to grunge it all up. Oh and i used a little but of white chalk ink in the stencil in the back round too.
Since i wanted to put more than just photos in my book i kept all the pages loose so that i could write things on the back and maybe attach old letters from her and recipes that we found. I have lots more photos to put in but i thought someday i would love my grandchildren to see a neat book with stories and photos of their great great grandmother so they could learn the amazing things about her too.
Each of them has beautiful vintage color browns and blues and well i just can't say enough about it.
I really love these papers and it made the photo look so good. This is all five of the sisters together in their house in Salem. It's neat because the house is still there and we go by every time we visit. I can't wait to finish printing all the photos and ask everyone for their memories of her to put inside. It's really going to be something neat to have and share with everyone.
The page is really special because i added buttons from her button box. I wish i new who's shirt or clothes these came off, oh what a story it could tell. The clocks i used to show all the time that she was here on this earth being the wonderful grandma that she was... 100 years is along time and i am so glad that i will have a special page to tell about her party and that wonderful milestone.
Thanks for hopping over to see what i did and be sure and check out the other girls this
month too. I am sure they will inspire you with what they do :) Happy Saturday!!
