Modern Heritage ?

I am loving the new CHA Winter releases that are family history orientated ! I can't ever remember being so spoiled for choice (and that's only if you want new release).
Cosmo Cricket - Circa 1934
Bo Bunny - Timepiece
Echo Park - For the Record
Kaisercraft - Timeless
Are all new additions to my stash, and I am having fun !

Whilst some of these are traditional colours and patterns, I am really loving the opportunity to do what I call "modern heritage". Using bright colours and bold patterns with old photographs is certainly very different from my usual heritage style !

Unfortunately...you'll have to wait to see what I created, as it will accompany a feature I have done for Scrapbooking Memories Magazine (but that's coming up real soon *wink* !) In the meantime, I will leave you with this 2Crafty share, which is a more traditional heritage page, and features a Lucy's Flourish Frame.



This page uses Cosmo Cricket - Circa 1934 papers with just a hint of the Echo Park - For the Record collection thrown in for good measure !
I'm also really taken with painted backgrounds and the Martha Stewart Doily Punch at the moment !
