A couple of weeks ago I ran a Scrapbooking 101 class. I talked about
different scrapbooking styles. We looked at 4 styles: Heritage, Classic, Pop and Shabby Chic. I made a 6×6 page for each of the 4 styles. This first one shows the Heritage style. This style generally depicts historical or vintage memorabilia,and uses earthy tones.  Journalling is usually more detailed and personal.  I hadn’t put any journalling on this page because of the size of the page, but I don’t think it needs to say a lot either.

This is my MIL and FIL taken a LITTLE while ago.  My FIL passed away 7 years ago so this is a very special photo.  I have clear embossed the ‘a’, and how can you go wrong with Baroque Motifs?  This set works really well with heritage pages.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Always

Inks: Sage Shadow, Choc Chip.    Markers:  Choc Chip, Creamy Caramel.

Card: Sage Shadow, Choc Chip, Very Vanilla.

Others: Clear EP, Heat Tool, Dimensionals. 1 1/4″ and 1 3/8″ circle Punch.


The next page shows a Classic Style.  This is typically very simple,  pages are uncluttered and generally with square or rectangular shapes.  Journalling is in a simple font and embellishments are used sparingly.

This is my DD taken at California Adventures when we went to the US last year.  I have kept it simple.  I have just realised I haven’t put dates on either of these photos, so I will have to amend that.

Stamps:  Simple Serif Mini Alphabet, Art by Design, short and Sweet.

Inks: Baja Breeze, Close to Cocoa.

Card: Urban Garden DSP, Close to Cocoa and Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Dimensionals, 2 way glue pen, dazzling diamonds.

In the next couple of days I will show you my 2 other pages showing the other 2 styles – Pop and Shabby Chic.
