I am a BIG fan of mini albums. I have made quite a few and every time I finish one I just get giddy. I think it’s because let’s face it, anything “mini” is just super cute! Ha! And the other reason is because it’s so neat to have a little book that is FULL of memories. Mini albums can be a super quick way to get a bunch of memories together and to me, it always seems more fun to grab some supplies and create a mini book! One of my favorite mini books that I’ve done was actually out of those laminate samples that you can get at the hardware store. I just grabbed a bunch of those, covered them with cardstock and then added photos and a bit of misc. supplies to them to create this super cute mini album about my daughter. The cool thing is there are already holes in the samples so just add a d-ring to hold it altogether and you’ve got a super cute and quick mini album!
My sweet friend, Elizabeth, contacted me last week asking me if I’d like to review her new eBook from Ella Publishing called, Meaningful Minis: Little Scrapbooking with lots of heart to inspire your scrapbooking. I said, “Of course!” I’m a fan of Elizabeth’s work (you should check out her book – The Scrapbooker’s Almanac HERE! LOVE it! I’ve got my own signed copy that I purchased last year!) and I think this eBook is so wonderful!
Here’s a brief description of her book:
Whatever you make, make it meaningful. Elizabeth Dillow applies this philosophy to everything she does, and Meaningful Mini Albums may be the meaningfulest* of them all. She poured her heart and soul into 12 amazing albums (some itty bitty and others merely small) that will inspire you to tell your best stories in creative new ways. And your purchase includes a free video tour of 7 of the 12 albums. (Details on page 2 of your download.)
The beauty of a mini-album is that you can pack BIG memories inside. And these are projects with a clear beginning and end, which means you get to accomplish something grand and set the finished product on the shelf for all the world to see, flip through, and enjoy. Aren’t you dying to think mini?
I’ve read Elizabeth’s eBook and I have to say that it’s chalk-full of wonderful, easy and super cute ideas! I love the mini albums that she created and all 12 are unique. I love how Elizabeth tells you what each album means to her. You can see how much heart is in such a small project. :) She also tells you how to get started and she gives you a supply list and awesome tips, too! When I finished the ebook I knew it was a great one because I wanted to sit down RIGHT THEN and create a little mini album. I even have a few mini album ideas in the works now! Mini albums are such sweet keepsakes and this eBook is a good example of just that. You can purchase a copy of it HERE. It’s on sale for $5.99 from now until September 4th.
Here are a couple of sample pages from the eBook:
