Heritage Mini Album Pages and Video

My Dad's mini album is complete!  Here are some of the pages.  And the video below shares almost all the pages in the album.  Two are part of the No Photo?  No Problem PDF so I didn't include them.

The Silhouette got a workout on the top page above.  I cut a stencil and used it for the background with light modeling paste.  I cut a baby carriage on the Silhouette, too.

The Trips page is one of my favorites and features the Travel Girl collection papers from October Afternoon.  I happen to have them in 8x8 and the color scheme worked perfectly.

Probably the most momentous decision my father ever made was to start his own business.  It really changed all our lives for the better so the Shop as we always called it got a bit more journaling.

In the pocket for this spread near the end of the book, I have a letter my aunt Linda sent to include with his album.  I put my own letter in the envelope on the Baby Makes 3 page.

And this page is the last in the album.  The photo is from the late 1990's and has always been one of my favorites of my parents.  They were on a cruise.  The background is stenciled by misting through a doily with Heidi Swapp Tinsel colorshine mist.

See all the pages here:

I have a process video that goes with this showing

  7. Your Dad's album is absolutely gorgeous, Lisa! I love the color scheme, which is surprisingly vivid and cohesive. I mean, gray? Who would have thought it? You have done such a wonderful job of the layout, too - as usual. You've inspired me to press along to completion of my own mini-album, which currently has 34 pages and will probably go another 16-20. Whew! Quite the project, but I'm loving it. Thanks for sharing!
