"Snapshots" Mini Book and Video by Cheri Piles using Family Stories

Hey everyone!! I wanted to share another mini album that I created for the CHA booth. This was a fun one to create!!! I have a little video for you to take a look at as well. Fo

What I enjoyed most when making this album was that I mixed and matched so many pieces from the collection to create more of an "Eclectic" book. The front page is a circle that I just cut the left side off of. The larger cream and white circle is from the chipboard elements and I layered it on my circle and cut it off to match.  

This is one of the smaller mini file folders (there are four to a package!) I love the pattern on it! The insides also have a different pattern, I like that because you can turn them inside out if you like one side more than another. 

 I love all of the journal cards in the collection. Oh and don't forget those photo corners, swoon!! This collection is so super bright and cheery and fun to play with!!

This was my toughest pages but it turned out soooo good. If you look closely at the original front photo you will see how I very carefully lined up how I cut this page to incorporate how it would look on the front. I love that you can read the words "the perfect moment" as part of the cover. And down below from the next page do you see how I turned the numbers border strip into a tab? She was 18 in these photos so it again was thought out. I am loving all of the layered stickers too!!

 I also am enjoying playing with the stamps in the collection, you can see the large flower, I think I use it more than the sweet hearts!

 This is a fun flap page I created using washi tape!

 The envelopes are so much fun!! I just added this one to a large "tag" page, I just made the tag and then added the envelope to it.

This is the largest mini file folder, I just love making mini's with these! They are so much fun to create with!!

I just added another page to the middle of the mini file folder and then added a longer strip up the center and folded the top down to create a mini flap page. I love interactive books! 

There you go! I hope you are as inspired as I am to create something with this new collection, Family Stories! I just can't get enough of this one!!
