100% Me – Ancestry Scrapbooking with DNA Results

100% Me Ancestry Composition Scrapbook Layout with Chipboard Globe

Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing a colorful layout that I created with my ancestry composition results from 23andMe. I’m working on cataloging old family photos. There are so many people that I know absolutely nothing about. My DNA results are just another piece of the puzzle of who I am and where my relatives came from. I have a lot to uncover, but working with what I know gives me a small sense of accomplishment. I wanted to document my results in a fun way. I paired the colored map and pie chart from 23andMe with the colorful Jillibean Soup Shades of Color collection to create this scrapbook layout.

How to Mount an Ancestry Composition Map onto a Chipboard Globe

To begin, I enlarged my ancestry map in a word processing program to fit onto the 6-inch Globe. I left the chipboard natural to help my color coded map stand out. Next, I backed the globe with patterned paper. Then, I applied a sticker and a die-cut to the globe before securing it to the layout.

I mounted my composition results onto a white shipping tag. To help highlight the circular chart that surrounds my photo, I backed it with a colorful rainbow circle that I cut from patterned paper. I cut several more different sizes of rainbow circles from patterned paper to continue the circle shape theme across the page. Finally, I added a cardstock smile sticker under the photo a bright accent.
