Noted Mini Album By Yvonne Blair featuring Memories

Hi everyone!  I am so happy to be featuring Teresa's NEW Memories line!  It is AMAZING!
She has really hit it out of the park again with her new releases!  
For this mini I am featuring our girl escapes! I will be adding to it as Bre and I have mom-daughter dates. 
I thought it would be fun to use my instagram pictures.  I am so addicted, hehehe.

The cover is made with a thick transparency.  Still love those, wink. 
I love that it helps add to the dimension with the embellishments coming from the next page. 

I hope you enjoyed this mini. I hope it inspired you to make a fun little album that will highlight those everyday moments!  Till next time.

Noted Mini Album by Yvonne Blair
Featuring Teresa Collins “Memories”

Two 5 ½ x 8 ½ Chipboard
Memories Papers: Flowers, Tags, Words, Calendar, Filmstrip and Doily
Memories: Washi Tape, Die Cut Flowes, Die Cut borders, Stickers, envelopes and Decorative Brads
Other: Acrylic Paper, Doilies, Pop Dots, Black pen, Adhesive---Scor-tape and Teresa Collins Mega Runner from Xyron, Round-it-all and the Cinch.

1.  Cut two Flowers paper to 8 ½ x 12 and wrap around each piece of chipboard.  You will have about an inch to much, just fold that piece back on itself to create a border on the left side of each chipboard cover.
***The cover is actually a piece of Acrylic paper cut to 5 ½ x 8 ½.
***When you are adhering things to transparent paper make sure that something lines up on the back to hide the adhesive from being seen.
2.  Using the scrap from Flowers 3 ½ x 12, fold in half to create 3 ½ x 6. Adhere the open end.  Once it is bound it will create a pocket.
3.  Cut acrylic paper (transparency) to 5 x 6 ½.
4.  Cut Calendar Paper to 8 x 12. Score at 2” and 6 ¾.  Fold the two inch flap in and adhere. Then fold on the 6 ¾ line, this will create a flap leaving enough on the left side to bind.
5.  Cut Filmstrip paper to 8 x 11. Fold in half and adhere together.
6.  Cut Acrylic paper to 5 x 6 ½.
7.  Cut Tags paper to 8 x 9, fold in half and adhere only along the bottom edge.  Once it is bound it will become a pocket.
8.  This page is one of Teresa envelopes from the Memories Line.
9.  Cut Words paper to 8 x 12.  Score at 3 ½ and 7 inches from the right edge. Fold over first flap and adhere. Fold over the next one, but don’t adhere it. This will create a flap.  

Embellish as seen in pictures.  The book is bound using the Cinch with a 1” coil ring.
