Granny Lucy
By LeNae Gerig



  1. Mat the photos: Mat your photos on black cardstock, trimming one to 1/16” and leaving about 1/4” edge on the other. Use the black and two-toned gray color block paper for the background. Glue the photos to the light gray part of the page, the one with the larger mat slightly overlapping the bottom right corner of the other.
  2. Create the Border: Use your eyelet setter to insert gold eyelets in ribbon Buckle Up Treasure. Attach the Buckle Up Treasure to the right side of the page, securing it behind the top and bottom with clear tape. Punch out the heritage images (car, buggy, train, trunk, map, ship) and cut out the embossed charms (compass, suitcase, “voyage”, “journey” and “travel”). Glue the car, train and ship images over the ribbon of the Buckle Up Treasure on the black part of the paper, angling the car and ship slightly. Glue compass, suitcase and “voyage” charms to the corners of the images.
  3. Journal and ink: Print your journaling on white paper in two rectangular blocks. Tear the blocks out, then add black ink to the edges: Hold the inkpad in one hand and glide each edge of the paper over it (see image). Let dry and glue one above the photo.
  4. Collage: Glue the map partially overlapping the bottom of the back photo, then glue the second journaling block, slightly overlapping the map. Glue the trunk image barely overlapping the bottom of the journaling block and the corner of the front photo. Add the two remaining embossed charms as shown and glue the buggy image slightly overlapping them.

A Tip from LeNae:

Many heritage photos are simple, portrait-type images, but you can easily use embellishments to tell a story about the person. LeNae told stories of Granny Lucy’s travels on this page with paper art images and embossed paper charms that work with the vintage feel of the page. She attached a Buckle Up Treasure over the color blocked section of the background, then punched out travel images from Heritage #2 Punch-Outs™ (a car, train, ship, trunk, buggy and map) and added gold embossed charms to dress them up a bit.
