Coming to America with Cricut Heritage Cartridge & Blog Hop Info!


Hi, this is Joy with today's Heritage layout which details my great-grandmother's journey to America. I have always wanted to make this layout as family history is so important.  I used the Cricut Heritage Cartridge.



The paper used is from SEI, the Juliette line, that we are featuring this week. I cut the Journey word art at 2" and the silhouettes on either side are also cut at 2". I flipped the right hand side one to make it more symmetrical.




I cut the ship using Fit to Page and it worked out perfectly for the bottom section of the page.

The journaling tells the story of my great-grandmother's long trip to America. When she was a young girl, her mother sent her out to get a hot dog, a special treat that she rarely had. When she got back home, everyone was gone and there was a note. The rest of the family (mother, father and siblings) had left for America. They had left her behind! She was around 10 years old. She was to go live with relatives, who ended up being very cruel to her, inflicting scars in her hairline that my grandmother noticed years later. Eventually, at the age of 21, she was able to come to America and be reunited with her family. I can't even imagine this scenario and my heart breaks when I think of it. She did have a happy marriage and was a wonderful woman, despite this difficult and heartbreaking childhood.

Onto happier subjects...

Today, join us on a blog hop where we will be giving away all kinds of fun prizes in celebration of the CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) Convention that we are flying to today! Start at Obsessed with Scrapbooking, then journey onto Courtney Lane Designs and onto Creative Critters Cricut Club. We have an exciting reveal planned for you so if you don't immediately see the Blog Hop post, check back! It will be worth your while!

Very nice page and what a heartbreaking story with you great-grandmother. Good that it ended well. Where did your great- grandmother come from?

Jean said...

Have not seen this cart before. Great page - so important to preserve the pst.

jennydecuir said...

What a wonderful tribute to your great-grandmother. Isn't it amazing what older generations went through to get us to where we are today? The ship from "Heritage" is great on this page. I think the color you chose for it works very well and doesn't let the size overwelm the picture. Thank you so much for the inspiration.

Very nice layout. It is important to preserve the history of the family. This will sound funny but thank you for explaining what CHA stands for...I have heard the term many times before and know it is a big deal but I never knew what it stood for.

Oh Joy, your Great-Grandmother's story made me tear up. What a lovely layout to honor a Woman who although faced with such adversity and sadness early on, went on to have a wonderful life. Thank you so much for sharing your story.

Hugs

blueskygirl said...

What a hard, sad beginning to life your grandmother had. I am glad she was eventually able to come to America and had a good marriage. The layout is beautiful!

Mom2Fiveplus3 said...

Love the layout. I've heard this story repeated several times. I can't imagine leaving a child behind.

Lisa said...

I forgot to add, this is definitely the cart I need to have, as I have so many photos that my Mother left me when she passed. But, even if I don't buy the cart soon, I still need to get going on this project, as my Mom was our families genealogist, and the stories, not as compelling as your Great Grands, but still, deserve a place in my scrapbooks, thank you for the inspiration to start planning this album, and get the photos out of the box and in an album for my family to enjoy.

Lisa

Maquel said...

I love the inking on the layout!! Really gives that aged look that you are looking for in a heritage layout! Super Job!

Elizabeth (Beth) Moore said...

I need to get this cart... I've been working on scrapping all my mother's old photographs (I gave her the partially finished scrapbook for Christmas so that she could journal in things I didn't know).... she was so thrilled to see our family history in photographs! It is something I hope my grandsons will treasure when they are older too! I love your layout...great inspiration for upcoming pages!

amy said...

That is such a great idea, I have always wanted to that for my grand parents photos. Nice layout. Thank you for sharing that with us!

I am always so envious of those that have photos of their grandparents. Mine are so very limited. This is the reason that I try so hard to take lots of photos for children. Love this layout... I'm just really jealous!

Brenda said...

Wonderful layout and history for your family- My son had to do a report last year 3rdgrade on where their ancestors came from and it was great for the kids to see and also parents to enjoy at a "worldfest" evening. My parents have lots of old photos that I will get and be able to do a heritage album. Hopefully during the cold weather they are writing down who is who in the pics (all in old pic albums - thankfully. OK TMI - Have fun at CHA and thanks for the blog hop! Hawksteammom@gmail.com
