Take it to Heart Vintage Scrapbook Pages

Last year, a large box of very old family photos was passed down to me. I took on the responsibility of sorting them and figuring out who was who, and then putting them into a scrapbook. I'm hoping to finish that project this year, or at least most of it, and my goal is to complete one spread each month. This is one of the spreads that I've completed, which will hold my parents wedding photos. 

As most of the photos are black and white, my scrapbook is all in neutral shades, so as not to compete with the photos. I used the Take it to Heart and Loving Thoughts Stamp Sets, and love how they look in a black and white spread. (Click on any photo to make it larger).

Two kinds of designer paper were used, the black pages from the Neutrals Stack, and First Edition.

All of the images in the hearts, except the largest, were heat embossed with Versamark Ink and Black Embossing Powder. The were then cut out using the new Hearts Collection Framelits offered in the Occasions Mini Catalog.

The little tags were stamped with the Tiny Tags Stamp Set and Punched with a Jewelry Tag Punch. I placed one next to each photo frame, and will hand write in the year the photo was taken.

The greeting from the Loving Thoughts Stamp Set fits perfectly in the frame from the Take it to Heart Stamp Set. The largest heart was cut with the Hearts Collection Framelits, then embossed with Adorning Accents Embossing Folder.

Blossoms were punched using a Scallop Oval and Boho Blossoms Punches. The First Edition DSP was then crumpled up to give it a more vintage feel.
