May Mini Album Tutorials and Challenge

Welcome to Mini Album Makers Challenge for the launch of our May challenge.  We were thrilled to see your beautiful entries in our April challenge and cannot wait to see what you come up with this month.  Our DT is busy at work to bring you a fresh batch of inspiration for all of your book making pleasures.  Without further ado...

Here´s my new mini album that is basically just cardstock and paper! I made it by combining two mini album bases by Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts, as well as three paper collections by Stamperia and Mintay papers. Check out the super mini tutorial in the end of the blogpost on my blog!


I have used Eileen Hull's new Notebook die to make this gorgeous little Vintage Notebook. It was made in no time at all, which was a relief as I had forgotten all about a friend's birthday! Do join me over on my blog if you would like to see how I pulled this all together in less than 30 minutes.

This month I'm working with a brand new album from Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts. Inside, you'll find two pockets with 2 separate mini-albums. Check-out my blog to see all the workings.

For the month of May I have created a Butterfly Album, using Sizzix Bigz Dies, old papers and Vintage Lace. The perfect companion for journaling and mixed media creatives. For those how to do's please pop on over HERE.

I have had a file folder sitting on my desk for ages and decided to use it to create a mini album along with some Tim Holtz dies and some vintage looking papers from my stash.  You can see more HERE.


It's always a good time to recycle! I recycled various bits from my studio to make these fun little pocket-sized journals. See the process HERE.


Hello friends!  I found that in my workshop there are many old collections of paper and decided it was time to find a use for them.  Therefore, I made quite a voluminous album and recorded a video lesson for you.  Come to my blog. I would be very happy to you!


Our generous prize sponsor this month is The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  One lucky winner will receive a fabulous prize pack of assorted art supplies.  If you're looking for even more crafty inspiration, make sure to check out the Frilly and Funky blog.
