Create an 8×8 Heritage Scrapbook

Before the 8×8 Albums go off sale on Tuesday July 5th, you are going to want to scoop up an Ebony 8×8 Album Cover to create a wonderful scrapbook using your heritage photos!

Dig out those black and whites, and re-live the memories of your ancestors!

Old black and white vintage photos pair perfectly with our recent Uncharted Collection!

So, while you are ordering the 8×8 album cover, you will want to add the Uncharted Paper Pack, Uncharted Embellishment Pack, Uncharted Stickers, and Uncharted Slide-Ins to your order.  These items, along with your Tape Runner, Foam Squares, and 12-Inch Trimmer will create a COMPLETE album—with pieces to spare!

You are going to start by picking out 8 pieces of paper from the paper pack.

You will cut each piece of paper into four- 4″ x 8″ strips, and will leave you with one small 4″ x 4″ piece.  Set those 4″ x 4″ pieces aside to mat your photos on!

NO OTHER cuts will be needed!  Saaaaaa-weet!

Once you have your paper strips cut, you can add them to your 8″ x 8″ Scrapbook Pages as shown.  One you have adhered all of your 4″ x 8″ strips to the album, go back and add the stickers, embellishments, and slide-ins!  I used foam squares behind some of the embellishments and stickers to create dimension on the page.

FINALLY—you can add your photos throughout the book.  And, if you know the story, make SURE to journal.  You want to be able to pass those memories down for generations to come!
