I love to research my family history and used to spend hours talking to my nanny, listening to her stories and sharing her memories.
One time she had dug out some postcards from WW1 and we sat reading the messages together. I was so touched by them that I was compelled to learn more.
The resultant research is gathered in this mini book and it focuses on my great grand uncle who was severely wounded during WW1.
I chose a Bo Bunny Misc Me album and covered it with K & Co papers.
The poppy is a made using a Papermania build a poppy stamp set. I layered the petals and added black glitter to the centre. The leaves were cut with my Cricut and the Mother’s Day Bouquet cartridge.
I printed the text for the word strips on my computer and hand cut the ribbon edge shapes.
I used (Tim Holtz) grungeboard letters for the title, covering them with Vintage Photo Distress ink and embossing powder.
I love the way the page protectors allow you to see the front and back of the postcards.
Back cover:I hope you like my mini book.
Thanks for stopping by.
