Inside: 10 reasons you’ll want to make mini albums for your photos   When I discovered mini albums a few years back I thought I discovered a treasure! I thought it was a genius solution for many of the issues I had with the large 12×12 scrapbook pages.

Why make mini albums instead of the traditional 12×12 pages? What are the benefits… why should I make them?     WHY MAKE MINI ALBUMS   MANAGEABLE PROJECT For some people, especially me, the thought of starting a big 12X12 scrapbook is just too overwhelming and time consuming. Just the thought of starting a large page, think about how to fit all these photos to one or two pages really discourages me from even starting. When I know there is a beginning …


Inside: 10 fun and creative ideas to make mini album inserts you just have to try!   I can’t think of the last time I made a scrapbook or a mini album page without adding an interactive mechanism or an insert.

Inside: 3 spooktacular Halloween mini albums you must make for this holiday! Step by step tutorials on how to make each one!   The one time of the year I envy Christians is on Halloween. Being a jew who lives in Israel I don’t celebrate Halloween but I think it’s one of the coolest holidays in the world. The costumes are great (in Jewish tradition there’s also a holiday where people wear costumes called Purim) but the best thins is the spooky theme that’s associated with this holiday.

Inside: 8 tutorials for one page projects you must try!   I make paper projects for a long time and I have to admit sometimes it gets boring.

Inside: great hacks to make amazing mini albums you need to know and try!   If you’re a paper crafter and you want to showcase your photos and document your memories you can make 12×12 scrapbook pages or mini albums.

They often have all their pages in the album about a specific person, place, event or occasion. There’s often a thread of continuity in terms of design: The papers match the album or the scrapper uses the same alphabet stickers throughout. WHY MAKE MINI ALBUMS Overwhelmed by the thought of devoting time, money and energy to a giant scrapbook, more and more people are starting small. Mini albums …

Travel Memories Envelope Mini Album

Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you my Travel Memories Envelope Mini Album. I just realized I never shared it with you even though I made it almost two years ago.
