Featured Page - Sisters

This heritage layout goes into my mom's biography scrapbook. It features her and her sister as kids. I used acetate as the base paper. I used Hero Arts stamps for the green flowers on the acetate, as well as to add flowers to the center of my K&CO flower shaped tags. I also used a Hero Arts stamp for the card that the title is on.

Memorial Shadow Box

Here's a project I did today, a memorial shadow box. This shadow box displays a photo of my paternal grandparents, Thomas and Sarah Craft. I included two photos of them, an army medallion and a copy of their marriage certificate. I really like how it came out, as well as the fact that I can change it if I want to.

Products used:
• Pioneer's self-adhesive army medallion
• Tim Holtz's ornate plates
• TPC Studio's framed dome stickers
• Martha Stewart's photo corner punch
• other assorted scrapbooking items
