Heritage Scrapbooking: Military Pages

One of the reasons I chose an American theme for the scrapbook featuring my grandfather Lewis Brown is the fact that he served in the Army during World War II. In my family history collection, I have a lot of documents and memorabilia. All of this makes easy pickings for scrapbook pages about his participation in second Great War.

Notice all of the documents that I've included on the first page. All of these things pertain to Lewis' participation. Also notice that I included the red military medal I photographed for my Photo Friday series. On the second page, I include a variety of photos, both black and white and sepia, of my Grandpa Lew in India. On this page, another artifact I photographed is included.

Now, I used the Americana Kit by No Reimer or Reason. The few additional embellishments were from a kit called Home of the Brave by Nikki Barber. I found that kit at Scrapbook.com. Notice that I don't really need much. The photos, documents, and the artifacts dominate and leave little room for anything else.

Now, I don't share my adventures in photographing memorabilia simply to show you how to photograph your objects, but to tie that in with the ability to included these items in your family history projects, such as a heritage albums. Get your cameras and scanners out and start digitizing your family history treasures to be included in your family history scrapbook.
