May Mini Album Tutorials and Challenge

Thanks so much our dear readers for joining us this May Day for another inspiring challenge.  We loved every single entry in our March/April challenge.  Make sure to pay those folks a visit.  This month we have a new challenge and an amazing sponsor, Eileen Hull.  Eileen is a designer for Sizzix and creates wonderful dies to be used to make mini albums and all sorts of crafts.  Eileen has just released her Tiny Book die and some of our teammates are showcasing it  below.  Eileen is generously giving one lucky winner in this month's challenge a $35 gift certificate to her Etsy shop!  WOW!  So come on and get those books made ladies!

Now, for the results from our previous challenge.  Our winner is...  Silvia from Mi Mundo Scrap!  Congrats Silvia!  Please email Autumn at to discuss joining us as guest designer.  Look at Silvia's exquisite tag book!  Make sure to visit her blog for the rest of the book.

And from our design team...


As a lover of tiny books and boxes the new dies from Eileen Hull are just perfect for me! I have used some small pieces leftover from a favourite paper pad to make this nature themed book and box. Do join me for more details over on my blog and again later in the month when I will be sharing a tutorial for more ways to use these wonderful dies.


I seem to be addicted to trifold folio/ album. For this month's inspiration also I am sharing a trifold album with pockets and flaps for adding journaling and adding photos. Visit my blog for more details about the album.

Hi friends!  I had a firm intention to make an album this month ... But I again made a notebook ... And again I recorded a video tutorial for you. On my blog you will find it.


It was so exciting to get to make a book with one of Eileen's newest dies!  I created a mixed media wee journal with the Tiny Book die.  More details can be found 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!
