February Mini Album Tutorials and Challenge

We are most thankful to those who played along with our January Challenge and helped us kick off a new year at Mini Album Makers Challenge.  Today we sadly say goodbye to Anne, who is moving on to bright horizons.  Anne has been a most valued teammate and contributor in the success of this challenge and will be sorely missed.  We wish you every blessing always!


We are happy to announce our newest DT member, Gayatri!  We know you will enjoy the beautiful projects she has in store for us here at MAM.  Welcome Gayatri!  Make sure to visit her blog Daffodils Quilling and follow along with her for more inspiration.


Anne has generously offered an AALL & Create Stencil Prize Pack for our January winner.  And the winner is...


Lyla Larimore of A Chief's Wife's Hearts 'aFire!  She shared two incredible altered Eileen Hull Passport journals.  We are totally smitten and truly thankful that you've accepted the challenge to create a book (or two, or three...) a month with us at Mini Album Makers!  :)  Lyla, Please email Autumn at teamclark@rocketmail.com to claim your prize.


Would you look at these amazing details and addition of a third flap?!  Wow Lyla, so so cool! 



 *****************************************************************

And now let's see what our design team has created to inspire you this month...


This chunky little album came into being whilst I was making a box! I have used Eileen Hull's new Gift Box die to make this mini album which has plenty of inside flaps and pockets. Do join me over on my blog if you would like to see how it all came together.


Anne

After much practice, I wanted to use my newly developed Coptic binding skills to create a Masculine/Industrial mini notebook.  You can see more on my blog HERE.


Gayatri

The air is full of romance with Valentine's day approaching. So I made this cute mini album to store you special romantic moments. To know how I made this, please visit my blog HERE.


Inna

Hello friends!  This time I decided to make a new artbook for myself.  I invite you to visit my blog and watch a video tutorial.

Autumn

I just can't stop making Valentines, my favorite craft!  I just had to use our February challenge as an opportunity to make just one more Tim Holtz mini album.  See the details on my blog, SewPaperPaint.

And now let's see what our design team has to share with you...


Each new year I am full of enthusiasm for making resolutions, some of which I do keep, but others fall by the wayside.  This year I am going to try and focus on what I want from the year, noting down any bright ideas I might have in this simple notebook holder.  See more on my BLOG.


Jennie

I made quite a few books for Christmas presents and had a pile of  leftover papers and board. So rather than waste them I made four little books measuring no more than 2" high representing the four seasons and using some precious Graphic 45 papers. Do join me over on my BLOG if you would like to see how they came together.


Autumn

Valentine's Day is my absolute favorite holiday for crafting!  I wanted to make some easy to duplicate affirmation booklets and have shared a free printable and instructions on my blog HERE.  My books are inspired by my passion for Tim Holtz/vintage.  I hope you'll make some too in your own style!  :)

As the Christmas/New Year Holiday Season is nearly upon us I have made a cute little book which will be used not just this year, but in future years, to record our memories of the season. I have a short step by step tutorial on my blog so do please join me if you would like to see more.



I love planning for Christmas, and even though I do less and less each year I still like to make a planner to keep Christmas gift ideas, and my all important card checklist.  You can see more on my blog HERE.

Hello friends!  I had the opportunity to decorate my workshop and I decorated the folder for stencils.  It was an ordinary stationery folder ...  I recorded a VIDEO process for you.
