November Mini Album Tutorials and Challenge

We are switching things up a bit and will have a two month window for this challenge.  You have all of November and December to play along.  Our hardworking DT will take a break during December to enjoy time with family and friends, but we didn't want to limit your contributions in this period.   We'd also like to take a moment to thank our dear Alison for her one year term with us.  And we would like to welcome new DT member, Gina Hubbard.  This month our designers have worked hard to bring you a great new selection of mini album tutorials.  Without further ado...

I was recently asked to design a mini album for Shetland Scrapbookers. The brief was a Book in a Pocket, but my design ended up as a Book in a Wallet ! I am using this small journal to record the details of my life over the past month - something I hope will be interesting to look back on in year's to come. Please do join me over at Live The Dream for more details.

This is a 9 by 11 inch folio that opens up to hold over 30 photos and some pop up surprises.  Perfect for collecting the photos and memories from Christmas morning, this folio has a spot for everything.  Please visit Gallery G to see more photos, some measurements and tips on creating this folio.


Hop over to my blog and see my latest file folder album.  Super quick and easy, especially when using cute pre-printed file folders.  The possibilities are endless!


I wanted to use this beautiful Gypsy Soul Laser Cut, so I altered a plain journal with fabric to accommodate it.  You can see more on my blog HERE.

Inspired by our sponsor Graphic 45's second release of the 12 Days of Christmas paper line, I created a stitched fabric covered mini album, perfect for storing 4x6" photos.  Join me at SewPaperPaint for the tutorial and closeups. 


I hope these peeks have sparked your imagination and you will pay the design team blogs a visit plus play along with our challenge, which ends at 11:55 pm EST on December 31.  Join us on January 7 for the winners announcement.

Qualifying entries in our November/December challenge will be in the draw for a Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts prize pack. 

Our challenge follows a few simple rules:
Any Handmade Book Goes.  Enter any form of handmade mini albums, scrapbooks, journals and book arts.  Our focus is on completed works, so no layouts or journal spreads that are not part of a complete handmade book project.  You do not have to provide a tutorial, but we wish you would.  Feel free to use one of the DT tutorials to make your project and give proper credit where due.  No back linking allowed.  You must add our badge to your post and link to our challenge to be eligible to win the prize.  Combine with any other challenges as applicable.  Please limit to entering 3 (three) handmade books per month in our challenge.  Permalinks only and no back linking.  Share the love by visiting and commenting on other entries.  Please become a follower.  That's it - have fun!
