Winners Post for May 2018

May was a record month here at Mini Album Makers and we are truly overwhelmed by the incredible response and participation you've given.  If you have yet to review the May challenge entries, please visit the post for some amazing inspiration.  It's never an easy job to narrow down to a few winners, but without further ado...

The overall design team favorite badge goes to Ann Barnes of aksbarchitect CREATES.  Ann, we would love to invite you to be our guest designer for the month of July.  Please email Autumn at to discuss further.

Ann completely brought to life a prefab Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts album with her gorgeous mix of vintage elements and colors.  This project truly sings harmony and design!  Bravo Ann!

Our top five entries are also incredible.  Each of you, please take our top five badge and display it proudly on your blogs.  In no particular order...

Marina Vorobiova of Sparrows Live Here charmed us with her funky fabulous upcycled denim journal.  

The vibrant colors and page designs with room for journaling made this album an instant favorite.  

Marty Fishman of Merry Marty Cards created a fabulous bird and butterfly themed accordion album from cardboard.  

There are so many beautiful details, you simply have to hop on over to Marty's blog for the closeups. 

Marisa of Scrap y CĂ­a shared her wonderful file folder album, filled to the brim with amazing elements.

Marisa is a master of layering and this album is loaded with luscious layers.  

Amanda from Paper Wishes shared an amazing grungy tag book, with lots of tips and tricks in her process photos.

The rusty effects she achieved are incredible!  What an awesome and creative little mini!

Heather of Vestige Blog worked her magic again with two lovely little books.

Not only are these cover designs utterly breathtaking, Heather's pages are truly stunning with her stamp work and color palette.  

A big thanks to each of you who played along.  And now, the announcement of the winner of the $25 gift certificate to Lindy's Stamp Gang...

And the winner is.....

That's Jen of Brain Things!  Biggest congratulations! Please email Autumn at to claim your prize.  We hope you are fully inspired and will play along with our June challenge for a chance to win a $25 voucher to StencilGirl Products.  Join us next Monday for a fantastic design team tutorial by DT member Alison.
