Blog Launch Giveaway and Design Team Call


Mini Album Makers Challenge is pleased to announce the launch of this new challenge blog that focuses on handmade mini albums, scrapbooks, journals and book arts.  If you've longed for a place to share and learn more about creating such books, please take a moment to become a follower!  Our monthly challenge theme is any handmade book goes.


Follower's Giveaway!
To encourage growth in this new venture, I'm offering a giveaway of a $25 gift card to the Funkie Junkie Boutique to one lucky follower.  All you need to do to enter is become a follower.  I would love for you to add our blog badge below to your sidebar to help us grow.  Please link it to our homepage.  If you do so, please leave a comment and you will receive an extra entry in the draw.  If you copy and paste this post and repost it on your blog you can receive a third entry.  Just say so in the comments below and give a link to your post.  The winner will be announced on September 1st in our inaugural challenge post.


Design Team Call!
I’m looking for a team of five or so creative individuals who will share design team duties to include:

1. As a part of the monthly challenge inspiration, one project photo per month with link to your own personal blog post containing a tutorial or tips and tricks for assembling one of the abovementioned book forms.
2. Rotating with other DT members to post one complete tutorial on challenge blog per month.  (If five team members, then one complete project every five months.)
3. Encourage, comment and support challenge entries.

Please email Autumn at teamclark@rocketmail.com with questions or applications.  Include your blog and social media links with a permalink to your favorite handmade book(s).  Please note this is a teaching blog and all projects, even if they are CASEd from another designer, must be tutorial based (photos or videos).  Applications will be taken through August 25.  Selected applicants will be notified by August 28.  Challenges begin September 1 with DT announcement (including a photo of your application book and backlink to that post – no new project necessary for September).  Thanks and best of luck!

Please share with your friends and get projects ready for our first challenge September 1!

  20. A wonderful idea and project, really. I wish you Good Luck Autumn, and to everyone applying!!
    I would have loved doing it and trying to be part of your DT as I love books and journals, and currently working on several such books. but it's just too hard for me to find the time at the moment to write full tutorials in English.
    Here I shared the launch too:
