Family Tree

One of the most popular posts on my blog has been a Family tree page that I did a few years back.  When I look at my blog stats and Pinterest pins that is the one that still gets the most hits and the post that I get the most emails about.  Unfortunately, since Stampin' Up! has stopped selling digital content, that download is no longer available.  Big frowny face here. :( 
With this in mind, and because I like to start albums with a family tree page, I decided to go in search of a new fun download for Family Trees.  I found this ADORABLE download, "Nutmeg," on a site called "The Lilypad"

There is a bundle that lets you get papers, journal cards and embellishments all at once.  The Bundle was on sale for $8.39 when I bought it, but the regular price is just $11.97, which is a great deal for all that you get. 

or you can buy papers and embellishments separately.
The papers are really nice, and they come in several colors,so you can see the pink tones woodgrain in this photo, but there are really several colors of this paper, as well as several colors of all the patterns, and solids to match.

 There are really cute journal cards too! You can use these in your project life type projects or as elements on the page!

 There is also a free add-on that has leaves with various family titles and a few blank ones to add your own.

 I started on a page that I thought I would share with you even though I have not finished.  I get so many emails about Family Trees that I felt that I would share this right away.  I am going to put photos in the frames and then add some leaves or other details to the page after the photos, just to see what I feel it still needs.
The site were this download is had a lot of sample pages to see so that you can get other ideas for how to use this download.  I love the fall colors in this kit and the pretty leaves it comes with.  I know that I will use it a lot this year. The papers are Beautiful.

  1. Looks like a great kit. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished page. I've not been crafting much recently and not really done anything digital for what seems like forever, due to partner being in hospital (details on my blog). I'm hoping when he eventually comes home I'll be able to get back into it.
