Scrappers are taking mini album making to the next level
with a couple of great mixed techniques.
Making mini books with mixed media books has been around a little while
and is simply putting together a compliment of different scrapbooking
products to create pages to fill your mini book keepsake. Readily
available prods that you may have at home that work well using this
technique include tags, journaling spots, note pad paper, chipboard and
die cuts. These mini books can be challenging to make but also a lot of
fun. It is also a great way to use up some of those products that have
been laying around for a while waiting to be loved.
Major retailers like Maya Road and Basic Grey are joining the fun too with
another popular mixing technique and are releasing more and more lines of
chipboard mini books where each of the pages are of a different shape and
size. But there is no need to run out and purchase the latest and greatest
chipboard albums when you can quite easily make your own. Get your hands
on some chipboard, sketch a few different shapes that you think would work
well together and you are half way to making mini album magic.
So Jump on board and make your mixed mini today. To get
you started here is a template for five shapes that you can use to make
your first album.
