About this page:
Scrapbooking heritage photos is a great way to preserve family history and even learn more about your family’s past. When working with these older “one-of-a-kind” pictures it’s a good idea to make copies to use in your scrapbook. This not only makes it possible to enlarge or crop, but it ensures that you won’t ruin a photo that can’t be reprinted!

Instructions for making this page:

  1. Cut a 6”x12” strip of brown/pink dot paper and glue lengthwise 2 1/2” from the top of the brown floral background paper.
  2. Mat a 5”x7” photo on pink cardstock, leaving a 1/8” border. Ink the edges brown. Mat again on white cardstock, leaving a 1/4" border at the top and sides, but a 1 1/4” border at the bottom.
  3. Glue a 1” strip of dot paper across the extended mat and trim even with the mat edges. (Tip: Flip the paper over before trimming to get an even cut)
  4. Computer journal or write on the pink book plate cut-out and secure over the strip with gold mini round brads.
  5. Punch two holes spaced 1/2” apart at the top left of the photo and insert 2 gold mini round brads.
  6. Secure the matted photo to the left side of the page.
  7. Computer journal or write on the bottom of the large pink tag cut-out. Attach the medium brown and small pink sheer flowers to the tag with a gold round brad.
  8. Cut a 5 3/4” square of pink cardstock. Tear the bottom and ink all edges brown. Journal about your subjects, leaving a blank space at the top right.
  9. Attach the tag to the top right of the journaling square with a gold mini round brad. Attach journaling block to the right side of the page.
  10. Mat a 2 3/4” x 3” photo on white cardstock, leaving a 1/8” border. Ink the edges brown. Mat again on pink cardstock, leaving a 1/8” border. Use foam tape to adhere the photo to the page below the journaling block.
