BBTB2 Heritage or Family Challenge

The challenge at Bitten by the Bug 2 is Heritage or Family.  I have had a school picture of my grandfather from 1898 for a few years now and this was a perfect excuse to scrap it.


This picture was given to my father by a neighbor who had had several copies made.  The names are all typed on the back.  I wanted to be able to frame the picture, but also remove it easily if we wanted to.  I found a frame from the cartridge called “The First Few Years”  that I felt would be big enough for the photo.  When the red frame on top of the tan background, I only put adhesive on the sides and bottom leaving the top free to slide the picture into.  The arrow box came from the same cartridge and I let the Cricut write the name using a free font called Telegram text.  The title came from Heritage and I cut it and the date from a bronze vinyl.  It was a quick page to do.  Picking out the paper took longer than it did to cut it.  

Make a project with your family as the inspiration using your Cricut and link it up over at Bitten by the Bug 2 by November 20.  – Denise

  1. great layout ideas for this special picture. I have one just like it of my grandfather. I like the ideas you used for putting it together and the nameplate. Wonderful, it shows off the picture more than the embellishments – so classy


  2. What a wonderful photo to have! I have hesitated to scrap some of my vintage photos due to wanting to be able to take them out to see the back and I absolutely LOVE how you used the frame to be able to slide it out when needed. I am going to use that idea going forward!!!! Great layout!


  3. You picked the perfect paper to use with your photo. How wonderful to have this photo to remind you of your Grandpa. Beautifully done!
