February Mini Album Tutorials and Challenge

Happy February book makers!  We hope your year is off to a great start.  Thank you for your patience with the delay in announcing our November/December challenge winners.  We promise those will be forthcoming.  If you didn't get a chance to join our January challenge, please make sure to take a look back and see those fabulous entries.  We are thrilled to announce our latest DT member, Heather Maxwell of Vestige Blog.  Let's see what she and our other designers have created for our challenge inspiration...


Sometimes it's fun to work small. This sweet little journal is made starting with a kit from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. I then had a lovely time adding and embellishing. Come visit my blog to see how I did it.


Hello friends! I made a mixed media cover for notebook and recorded a video tutorial for you.  Hope this video will be useful for you.  Subscribe to my channel.


Each year I like to make a mini journal / diary to keep notes, thoughts and appointments in.  If you would like to see more of my project, please visit HERE for more detail.


Mini books don't have to be complicated to assemble.  This is so easy to create.
With just a few rings, an easel-type construction and the size pages you want
you can create your own easel flip book.  Please visit my site to see each page.


If you are like me and love making ATCs it is great to have a mini album to showcase some of your favourites. I have made this mini book using envelopes which was fun and quick to make and of course easy to decorate as the ATCs were all ready to stick in.   Do join me over on my blog if you would like to see more.


This adorable album is created using the newest album kit from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts and features flip panels with a shaped edge.  Check out my post to see the kit and how I decorated mine.
