Hello my crafty friends, Diane here to share with your my newest design team project. I am so excited to share with you this lovely family vintage journal created with the beautiful Simple Stories Vintage Ancestry Collection.

This collection was made to document your family photos and history, but instead of a mini album I decided to change it up a bit and do a journal. I think it’s perfect to document your thoughts about what family means to you maybe some special times that your family has influenced you or inspired you and then add a few photos to the tag inserts and photo mounts. I hope that you will enjoy this creation and it will inspire you to make a journal of your very own.

As you can see by the outside of the journal, these papers by Simple Stories are absolutely amazing. I love the colors, the images, and the sweet sayings about family and heritage.

Below are photos of the three different removable signatures. One is lined for writing, one is watercolor paper and the last signature has graph paper.

I just adore the colors of this collection. It was a joy working with the patterns and images and all the bits and pieces. I think that it would be very compatible with colored photos or black and white photos for documenting all those special memories.

I love what this 3 x 4 card says about family. Simple Stories really knocked it out of the park with this collection. So many parts of it is so very inspiring.
