I bought a stack of Heidi's file folders as soon as i could get my hands on them and just love their versatility and designs. I needed to make a rather condensed version of My Mum's life in an album for her 70th birthday. I live in another state, so didn't have access to alot of photos. The Vintage Chic design I chose seemed to guide me through the process, without having to worry about finding papers to match. I did minimal embellishing as you don't want anything to bulky in the middle. I joined the folders together with some ribbon through punched holes at the side.

 The section in the middle on the right, opens up at the journal spot to reveal some wonderful family memories below.
 I have used some Collections butterflies and papers throughout, a little stamping and some typed strip journalling. I've also made a few little pockets with journal cards for Mum to add her thoughts and memories. This is the back, below. I haven't shown all the pages, but you can get the general idea.
