Today I thought I’d share a few layouts I designed for my “Time Travel” article in the Spring issue of Canadian Scrapbooker magazine.
Creating heritage pages and vintage designs is one of my favourite styles of scrapbooking.
FabScraps was perfect to use for this layout “Farm Girls,” featuring a photo of my mom and her cousin in the farm yard. Why are they wearing pretty white dresses and playing outside?? It’s probably Sunday!
I used The Crafter’s Workshop chicken wire stencil and Stephanie Barnard/Clearsnap black spray on the background paper.
|The title was cut with a Cricut.
The crocheted doily was bought at a garage sale last summer.
I coloured the chipboard elements with inks.
My next layout is made with beautiful Melissa Frances products….
The photo is my cousin Cindy who grew up on the same farm as my mom did!
To make this flower, I just covered a chipboard circle with liquid adhesive and wound the ribbon around. Then I added a pretty pearl bling centre.
I also made some simple spiral roses…
The alphabet stickers and white resin pieces are also Melissa Frances.
This last layout was designed with the gorgeous Graphic 45 “A Ladies Diary” collection….
My mom’s 27th birthday! Love her dress.
Here are some close-ups.
|I fussy cut these roses and leaves from the patterned paper.

A very sweet friend of mine, Michelle Marks, also used Ladies Diary and designed this gorgeous vintage tea box and mailed it to me for my birthday….

I love it, Michelle! Thank you so much.
And thank you, Canadian Scrapbooker, for giving me the opportunity to design and write “Time Travel.”
My heritage pages are precious to me, and I really enjoy sharing them with all of you.
