Heritage Scrapbooking means honoring those who have come before you by documenting the stories of their lives. The people in the photos are not only just old relatives, they are the reason for the development of your family line, shaping who you are, however indirectly. Heritage scrapbooks help keep the family history alive for future generations so will know about their history and where they might have inherited their nose, eyes, hair color or even their sense of humor. By treasuring their stories and images, it is as if our relatives are still with us because we know something about their lives and the times in which they lived.



Grandfather Heritage Scrapbook Layout

Grandfather Heritage Scrapbook Layout

The decision to use these photos in thisd heritage scrapbook layout was based on the fact that I had done so many layouts of my grandmother’s family so I felt it was time to honor my grandfather’s. Unfortunately there aren’t many pictures of them because so many were lost or not many were taken.

Father and Mother Heritage Layout

Father and Mother Heritage Layout

This heritage layout took about 15 minutes to make. Again, I used a heritage color for the paper and heritage style stickers for the embellishments.

Heritage

Heritage

This layout took me about 20 minutes to complete. Heritage layouts can be done on any color scrapbook page but this one looks particularly good on a natural color page as opposed to black or white, both of which would create too much of a stark contrast to the photo.

Heritage Farm

Heritage Farm

This layout took about 35 minutes. I used a classic green to serve as a background that won't overpower these black and white photos. They represent various ages and stages of a family at their home farm. Some of the photos were rounded at the corners or left square depending on what best suited the photo .

Heritage Sisters

Heritage Sisters

This layout took about 20 minutes to make. This layout is very simple. Green is a very elegant color which is what photos of this nature requires. You want the background colors to match the caliber of the photo but not to downplay the importance of the photo.

Heritage Railroad Layout

Heritage Railroad Layout

This heritage railroad scrapbook layout took about 45 minutes since all the photos were not square making the page look a bit odd I was going to trim all of the old photos to make them perfectly square but decided against it as I felt the crooked photos added to the charm of the page.

Heritage Christmas Scrapbook Layout

Heritage Christmas Scrapbook Layout

This Heritage Christmas scrapbook layout only took me about 20 minutes. Simple in design, yet everything on the page says Family Christmas from the colors to the stickers.

Working Horses

Working Horses

I chose to do a layout featuring the horses my great grandfather used to work his farm to demonstrate that scrapbooking is not only about documenting the people in families but also the elements that were essential to their way of life.

Holding Marjorie Heritage Scrapbook Layout

Holding Marjorie Heritage Scrapbook Layout

All the photos in this layout feature my grandmother, Marjorie and in all but one, someone is holding her.
