Make a Scrapbook Mini Album
Learn How to make a scrapbook mini album or mini scrapbook. Traditional 12x12 Scrapbook layouts are great!! But I love making hand made mini scrapbooks, mini books and other scrapbooking projects. WHY???
Quick and Easy
All I have to do is pick the type and size of scrapbook mini album I want to make, choose an album theme to suit the photos I want to scrap, grab a bunch of embellishments and away I go. By the end of the day (hopefully) I will have in my hot little hands one completed scrapbook album. Unlike my traditional 12"x12" album which would take me forever to finish. Especially since I find I don't have nearly as much time to scrap as I would like.

Mini Scrapbooks are great for the novice scrapbooker
With this in mind they are a great way to get started in scrapbooking. The pages are much smaller, so they need less embellishments, time and creative energy to create. I don't know about you, but to me the thought filling a album with 20 odd 12x12 layouts was really overwhelming when I was a first time scrapper. In fact I still haven't filled my first family album yet, one day..... With a mini album you can finish it in a snap and you get to feel a huge sense of accomplishment when you see the finished product. Especially when they look as good as they do!
Great scrapbooking gift idea
Mini albums make fantastic scrapbooking gifts for friends or family that they'll love and treasure always. Because My grandmother lives in NZ and we're here in Australia, instead of sending her photos I send her a mini book portraying the previous year or maybe the photos from a holiday that we shared together like this Summer holiday photo album. I showcase only the best photos of any of the major events that occurred. If there one particular stand out event that deserves extra attention - like my daughters first birthday - then I will make her a special album. My grandmother will cry her eyes out whenever she receives one - then proceed to show it off to anyone who walks through her front door.
My favourite gift of all time to give is a baby shower mini scrapbook, usually made from plain old paper bags. Oh my god, do the mummies just love them, even the other guests at the party love to pass it around and "oooh and ahhh" Good practice for when the baby comes I guess. I'm also into making wedding guest books for my friends to compliment their invitations.
