The Scrapp'n Savvy's Sampler Project March 30-31, 2012

I added an wooden oval with my wedding photo at the beginning of my project next to the muslin flower.
I chose Tim Holtz red brick stain as my accent color.
Between the H and O I hung three wooden embelishments from my kit, One I dyed red brick, one I wall papered, and the third one I covered with striped red ribbon. It was fun using different techniques on the wood.
The butterfly was the most fun creative element of the project. Using a heavy glue dot I attached my butterfly to a 1 1/2" Black Bazzill flower to a 3" red Bazzill flower on the right lower side of the O overlaping the M slightly.
This flower element I attached on the E. The center piece I also covered a wood with red striped ribbon, using fabric-tac to adhere it to my project. As you see at the left on the right side of the M I used three black flowers ucing pearls as the centers.  
Not shown in this photo I use a wood element as achalk board to state the year my family was established. At the right end of my project I added a homemade heart to title my project, "Home is where you hang your Heart." Slightly Behind this heart I am going to add on an rectangle a photo of our first home. I loved this Sampler project and plan on using the skills I've learned to create wedding gifts. What di you think.

For decades I have loved searching for my family to fill up my family tree. I couldn't get my children interested in their ancesters thinking they were just words on papers, boring! About five years ago I came up with idea to scrapbook my ancesters into a four generation scrapbook hoping to inspire my children. It became my signature craft. Not only have my children enjoyed their books but I have been fortunate enough to teach and help others in finding and scrapbooking their families. This year I've decided to to make a four generation scrapbook of my direct line, yeah! I love using black and white so I've chosen the BoBunny Enchanted line as my printed paper.

I statred my new four generations class in January with the layouts below. Each month I create three two page layouts working through the four generations. One side I kit and teach the second side I print instructions for the students to kit and make. Because we are trying finish four generation in three months I also create and kit another two page layout for sale.
