Heritage Challenge: Heritage with a Mod Twist

This week the field is wide open . . . we have no particular heritage category today.  So just find a great old photo from the 70’s or earlier and scrap away.  Too easy?  I’ll throw in one request . . . let’s put a modern twist to our heritage pages this time.  When going through the fabulous Heritage Gallery I find that often times I am drawn to the simple and sort of mod looking layouts . . . so I thought that perhaps it might be fun to see what some others come up with too.

I typed “heritage” into the search box in the Designer Digitals Store and came up with loads of cool heritage products . . . and I think that these are particularly mod looking.

Now go through the store on you own and find some other “non-heritage” products for your pages and share them with us in the Heritage Gallery.  Take a look at the pages that CT members Carol [carollee], Sharon [Shannamay] and I [readstoomuch] have made for the challenge.

Carol’s A Note to My Future Self used these products:  Pink Florale Paper Pack, Valentine Pretties Paper Pack: Solids,  Ripped and Stitched Do-it-Yourself No. 03, Artistry d’amour Add-On Paper Pack Clean Stitched: White No. 03, Stitched Journal Strips No. 03, Classic Curled Photo Frames No. 03, Nana’s Buttons and the new and fabulous Anders Kit.

We would love to see your back to school pages in the Heritage Gallery along with ours.  Remember that your pages should use products from the Designer Digitals Store and feature memories from the 1970’s or earlier.  Some of you may be surprised that you are considered “heritage” girls!!!
