Mini Album Monday #79- Family Album

Today for Mini Album Monday, I have a fun family-themed album to share.
It showcases my mom's parents and siblings.



I chose green pattern paper with family themed words on it for the covers.
I also used some coordinating green paisley paper throughout the rest of the album.


The interior pages are actually one large piece of cardstock that measured 18"x 26".
I folded it in half, then folded up the bottom 2 1/4" on each side to make the pockets.
I then accordion folded every three inches to make the pages.


I started with an old family photo on the first page
and a bit of information about the family on the second page.
I had my mom write the journaling so that her handwriting would be documented in this book.


Each page has a pocket.
I left the very first pocket empty, but in the second one, I put a recent family photo.


The next two pages feature my grandparents.
You'll notice that the only pattern paper I used was small pieces to cover the fronts of each pocket.


In each pocket is a tag with information about every family member.
Here are the prompts I used:
Name
Born
Married to
Children
Known for
My mom filled in the info on each of the tags.
On every tag (except my grandfather's), I included a small photo of that family member when they were young. I couldn't find a photo of my grandpa as a boy.


The next two pages feature my mom's older brother and sister.




Here is the backside as the album is pulled open.


The first two pages on the back feature my mom and her younger sister.


The last sibling, her younger brother, is here on the left with a quote about family on the right.


I adhered the folded cardstock to two pieces of chipboard for the covers
 and used a ribbon for closure.
The only embellishments I used in this album are different brads and ribbons at the top of each tag.
I am so glad to have this album with photo and details about aunts and uncles who I unfortunately don't get to see very often.
Do you have any photographic records of your family?
If you're a mini album lover like me, swing by here every other Monday
to see a new and different mini album.
Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
I have chosen the way of truth

Laura you got the creativity gene from your mom. I treasure the mini album you made years ago. It is on the end table used by guests and it is a great conversation item. Love you and thank you for your loving attention. You are a priceless gem.
