Five Must-Make Mini-Albums!

Join me this week for my series on Five Must-Make Mini-Albums!

All this week, I will be showcasing different must-make, must-have mini-albums with tips, tricks and techniques for getting those memories and photos scrapped!

I love mini-albums because there is typically a defined start and finish to the project.  I like the smaller size of them and the versatility they offer.  And, I hope, by the time I'm done showing you these mini-albums, you will be inspired to try some yourself, if you've never gone down that road.  To me, this is the most satisfying scrapbooking because you can finish!  It's not on-going.

These are some of my favorite albums of all time - the ones my kids and family look over the most!

Included this week is an album that was my best received, most cherished creation that I made for someone very special.  And, I had a blast doing it!   Wait until you see how easy it was to make, especially by getting others to help.

Check back in the morning for the first album...don't miss out!

  30. I am really looking forward to these mini albums. I like projects that have a beginning and an end. I akso like projects that can be done in short spurts of time.

  52. I love the mini albums. My sister and I made one for my sister-in-law of her bridal shower. We set aside a few pages for people to write best wishes and words of wisdom for their new marriage. I love your idea about making one for the hubby! We've been married three years and soon will be four, I think I will be making him one for our fourth anniversary! Thank you so much for the idea!!

  53. Cannot wait to see what you make! Have wanted to make a few minis lately but needed a bit of inspiration.
