February Mini Album Tutorials and Challenge

We are most thankful to those who played along with our January Challenge and helped us kick off a new year at Mini Album Makers Challenge.  Today we sadly say goodbye to Anne, who is moving on to bright horizons.  Anne has been a most valued teammate and contributor in the success of this challenge and will be sorely missed.  We wish you every blessing always!

We are happy to announce our newest DT member, Gayatri!  We know you will enjoy the beautiful projects she has in store for us here at MAM.  Welcome Gayatri!  Make sure to visit her blog Daffodils Quilling and follow along with her for more inspiration.

Anne has generously offered an AALL & Create Stencil Prize Pack for our January winner.  And the winner is...

Lyla Larimore of A Chief's Wife's Hearts 'aFire!  She shared two incredible altered Eileen Hull Passport journals.  We are totally smitten and truly thankful that you've accepted the challenge to create a book (or two, or three...) a month with us at Mini Album Makers!  :)  Lyla, Please email Autumn at to claim your prize.

Would you look at these amazing details and addition of a third flap?!  Wow Lyla, so so cool! 


And now let's see what our design team has created to inspire you this month...

This chunky little album came into being whilst I was making a box! I have used Eileen Hull's new Gift Box die to make this mini album which has plenty of inside flaps and pockets. Do join me over on my blog if you would like to see how it all came together.


After much practice, I wanted to use my newly developed Coptic binding skills to create a Masculine/Industrial mini notebook.  You can see more on my blog HERE.


The air is full of romance with Valentine's day approaching. So I made this cute mini album to store you special romantic moments. To know how I made this, please visit my blog HERE.


Hello friends!  This time I decided to make a new artbook for myself.  I invite you to visit my blog and watch a video tutorial.


I just can't stop making Valentines, my favorite craft!  I just had to use our February challenge as an opportunity to make just one more Tim Holtz mini album.  See the details on my blog, SewPaperPaint.


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!
