I went to my local scrapbooking store last weekend, and had a great time. For me, it's like a special treat to look at papers, and stickers, and pens, and all things scrapbooking. I could literally spend hours in scrapbooking stores dreaming up layouts, and special projects.
As I was browsing and happily thinking about my children off on another errand with their Daddy, I noticed some papers that would be perfect for your Heritage Scrapbook pages. I made a mental note of the brand, and had to leave. I looked it up online, and discovered a lot of great products that could be used in scrapbooking your family history. I would love to get my hands on some of these!
The first product that jumped out on me were the beautiful group sheets. When researching your family history, you often gather a lot of information. Group sheets are a great way to store this information and keep track of dates, names, and places. Why not scrapbook a group sheet in a beautiful way? Simply transfer all your information to one of these specially designed, vintage looking papers, and you have a classier version of your typically boring group sheet.
Another fun paper they carry is the family branches paper. This has a more child-like look to it, but would be a fun addition to any scrapbook. I think this particular paper would be fun to do with your own kids to teach them about their own heritage, and family history. Shrink photos down, and let your child glue them on. You could even frame the paper when they are finished to hang in their room.
They also have My Roots cardstock stickers where you can easily fill in your family information. These stickers would be great for using on a page about any of your ancestors.
Last, the other thing I like about this particular company are their kits. They have an ancestry kit, and a family tree kit. Both kits include papers and stickers to help you complete your heritage pages. For a complete list of their ancestry and family tree products, go here.
As I continue to write this blog, I hope to help you discover all the wonderful products that are out there that can help you easily do your family history scrapbooking.
