Welcome


Welcome to the first edition of the Making Mini Scrapbooks newsletter. I hope to use this communication to keep in better contact with the visitors of the website – to let you know about what new projects and techniques have been added to the website, and also to share other mini scrapbook info that I’ve come across on the internet in general. There will also be a prize giveaway with each newsletter because I love giving stuff away.

New Projects on Making-Mini-Scrapbooks.com

There is a new project in the beginner’s section of the website on making a mini scrapbook out of one 12 x 12 piece of cardstock. This is a quick and easy project. When completed this mini album has pockets perfect for tags.

Finally, I saw these two interesting mini scrapbook ideas. The first is a Flip Flop Baby Album (literally). Super cute and unique. Flip Flop Baby Album

The second one is actually a kit that somebody is selling with a unique design called the double slider album. It’s just so unique I had to share it here. It’s at least worth looking at.
