Welcome


Welcome to the second edition of the Making Mini Scrapbooks newsletter. I get so excited about putting out each issue of the newsletter! It's really a lot of fun. If anybody sees anything they think would be a neat addition to the newsletter let me know and I'll see about adding it in.

New Projects on Making-Mini-Scrapbooks.com

This month I was bound and determined to figure out Hedi Kyle's Blizzard Book. I finally conquered it and have directions in the origami books section on the website at

I think you'll enjoy this one. I still have a couple of others to add to this section as I get time.

I've been very much into making books out of recycled items ever since the economy got so rough. In fact, there will be a new project along these lines in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, I've put together a page in my Amazon bookstore that features four books on making books and other craft projects from recycled items. I can't wait to get these books myself! You can check them out here.

I saw this absolutely adorable Garden Gate mini album and just had to share the link with you guys. This is one of the most creative mini albums I've seen in awhile. It includes a complete tutorial on how to make it. Perfect!

For those of you who prefer everything ready in a kit, I thought this Prima Artful Mini Book Kit was just beautiful! I love the colors!
