2016: Story, Indiana
For Fall Break, 2016 we took a road trip through Southern Indiana. One of the stops on our trip was Story, Indiana, a town that has been completely converted into a bed and breakfast, and restaurant – The Story Inn. If you want to see the history of this quaint town, click on the picture and then zoom in on the brochure (which is actually the placement for the restaurant that I cut down to fit on this page).
I chose an antique faded paint theme for this spread, since it mirrors perfectly the look of the Inn and the town. The left hand page contains postcards and a placement brochure from the Inn, and the right hand page has pictures that I took from the adventure and meal. For this page I used a solid light tan border for the pictures to help them stand out on the busy background. I put an antique clock face in the middle of the pictures to emphasize the antique theme on this page.
In the bottom right hand corner is an antique embossed seal that was in the Inn and we used a piece of paper to make this impression for the scrapbook. One of the techniques that I do not use a lot in my scrapbooking, but some people do, is creating embossed papers. This is usually a technique used for card making and other projects. When you put embossing behind plastic page protectors it is harder to see, which is why I do not use it alot for the scrapbooks. The Sissix Big Shot machine is great for embossing papers.
