This is a 12" x 12" 7Gypsies double sided paper, and I cut out the journal tag and sentiment from the Recollections signature 'Memories Documented' paper pad, and finished the page with 2 Papermania Capsule Collection blooms and an adhesive pearl, the photo is of Fraser, who is 17 months older than the twins, then Anita in the middle and Mo. I am journaling about where we lived and our relatives for not only my sisters but also for them to pass down to their children to show them our childhoods.
this page is another 12" x 12" double sided 7Gypsies paper, and I cut out and added the 'don't forget', bunting and journal tag from the same Recollections paper pad as before. From left to right its Mo, Ian, Fraser, Anita then me.
Above, how the pages are laid out in a double layout in Anita's album. I think the muted tones work well with the black and white photographs.
these are 2 of my favourite photos of Mo, the paper is 12" x 12" K & Co Addison Stitched Strips Flat Paper, I embellished the page with blue textured paper behind the photos, Papermania star brads,
Kraft card for journal tag, pink adhesive gems. Her name was made using a Brenda Pinnick 'Posies' pink adhesive letter and a pink button.
This page has 2 photos of our parents along with the details of when they renewed their wedding vows, all the more poignant as dad collapsed with a massive stroke 2 weeks later and was unable to speak until his death 7 months later, I miss his smile and humour. the page is 12" x 12" K & Co Classic K Margo Multicolored Plaid Flat Paper, I also used blue textured card, blue glitter card, hearts and swirls paper and a diecut journal tag which I was sent in a swap on docrafts forum. you can't see the acetate sentiment (bottom right) well, its adhered to the page with 2 Papermania khaki brads and reads "We were two and had but ONE heart", so true of them who were devoted to each other for over 40 years of marriage, I finished the page with cream adhesive pearls.
how they appear in the album as a double layout.
I am really enjoying going down memory lane and making these albums, thanks for any comments you may leave, fi xx
