Family Stories Mini Album by Yvonne Blair

Hi everyone.  Yvonne here today with a mini featuring Teresa Collins Family Stories line. 
This line is so fun, can be used for family, boy, girl, or day to day life. 
Very versatile line!
The book is 6 x 8 1/2.  There are a lot of fold outs and pockets to give extra
"real estate" and places for journaling.  
 On the left page I cut a piece of black cardstock (8 1/2 x 4 1/4) and folded it in half, placed a decorative piece of Family Stories paper on the front.  This gives the opportunity for some hidden pictures or hidden journaling. On the right side I used one of the envelopes to create a journal pocket.  
 On these two pages there is a file folder tucked behind a decorative strip.  
On the right side some extra black cardstock lends itself to create flaps and pockets. 
 This is a view with the flap folded shut.  
 Here we have a folded piece of decorative paper to create another pocket. 
 Following the diagonal line I cut the decorative paper to create a corner pocket for more 
places to tuck folded cards and journaling cards. 
On the left there is a pocket created by slitting the paper before I adhered it to the back of the previous page. It creates a seamless place that you can tuck more fun things. 
 Another pocket page with a file folder and picture mat on the right and 
a border punch strip to create another place to tuck stuff. 
 The diagonal strip is on a piece of  5 3/4 x 12 black cardstock.  Fold it in half and create a flap the folds up.  
 Just some simple embellishing with some room for pictures. 

 Hope you enjoyed this mini.  I am trying to get a video done to show some of the fun features of this album so keep your eyes open for that.  
Supplies used:
Family Stories papers, die cut border strips, chipboard embellishments, file folders, decorative brads, envelopes, epoxy dots, die cut sheets.  Also doilies, TC Xyron Mega Runner, Scor-tape, Glossy Accents, Studio Matte Medium and pop dots.
