June Mini Album Tutorials and Challenge

Happy summer friends!  We are amazed at your continued support and creativity and truly enjoyed each of your entries in our May challenge.   We hope you are enjoying bookmaking amidst this stressful time in the world.  We are excited to announce this month's challenge sponsor, The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  

We are happy to announce the winner of our May challenge, winning a $35 gift voucher for the Eileen Hull Etsy shop.  And the winner is Julia Dudnik of Blog Fox!  Julia shared an exquisite handmade journal with so many beautiful details on her blog.  Congratulations dear!  Please email Autumn at to claim your prize and to discuss joining us as guest designer.  

And now inspiration from our design team...

I have used some fabulous downloadable vintage papers to make this A5 wallet with pockets and flaps. The inside is decorated with small collages and sentiments. Do join me over at Live the Dream if you would like to see how it all came together.


I have an Envelope shaped mini album to share with you. It has flaps and pockets for adding photos and journaling cards.  Do join me over at my blog for more details.


I was inspired to make a fun and funky accordion album from my gelli prints, filled with loads of my favorite PaperArtsy images.  Stop by SewPaperPaint for the details.


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!
