March Mini Album Tutorials and Challenge

Just a few more days until spring book makers!  We hope the sunny days have come your way and flowers blooming all around will inspire your creativity like never before.  We were so pleased with the participation in our February Challenge.  Make sure to take some time to visit those wonderful entries.  Our design team continues to grown and evolve.  Today we welcome the fabulous Tracey Fairgrieve of New Beginnings.

We are so pleased to have Tracey join our team.  Let's see what she and our other designers have created for your inspiration...

For my first Mini Album Makers Design Team project I have created a pocket album from scratch using card and heavy calico, embellished with die cuts from Tim Holtz Wildflower Stems #1 filled to the brim with Graphic 45. Please pop on over to my blog to see all the loveliness inside...

I can never get enough of old rusty crusty stuff. The journal I've made this month is meant to look like an old botanist's field journal. Come visit my blog and see the inside...

I am a HuGE fan of Graphic 45 papers, our sponsor this month, so I am sharing an album I made using the School Days papers to record my own and my husbands school records and photos. Do join me over on my blog to see the inside and also a tutorial for the folded signature.


Dear friends! This time I made a fantasy book for you and prepared a tutorial on how to attach the covers and the end sheets to the notebook block. Quick and easy! The video is on my blog


Here's a mini album that is perfect for a first year of school, vintage classroom photos or just for everyday.  The base page and file folder insert are quick and easy to make and feature lots of space for including photos and journaling.  Hop over to my blog for instructions on creating the base page and insert and to see how I decorated mine.

Hello friends! I live in Siberia and at this time of the year there are no bright colors here. All white and gray ...  I decided to make a very bright notebook and wrote down a video tutorial for you. I would be glad to see you on my blog!
