I must apologize that there hasn't been a newsletter in a couple of months. I have just been so busy with work that I haven't been able to devote much time to my beloved mini scrapbook obsession. The good news is that I've hired some help, so I should have more time to create!
What's New At Making Mini Scrapbooks
I did manage to get a few small projects posted though and I wanted to share those with you.
Just in time for Father's Day is an adorable origami
shirt mini scrapbook
. It can also be a card, but I prefer the mini album idea as you can do so much more with it.
Have you ever created a mini album that was a little "fat" and didn't want to close properly? Well, there is a very simple thing you can make to solve this problem. It's called a
and you can usually create one out of pieces of scrapbook paper in your srap bin.
I started another new section on the website on
. I haven't done a whole lot of altered book projects yet myself, but I thought it would be good to have a place to post them on the website when I do some. I would also like to invite you to submit your altered book projects. I would be thrilled to include them on the website and will even give you a link to your blog or website with credit for your submission. All you have to do is take a few pics and write a few words about how you made it. You can e-mail me personally at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in submitting an altered book or a project for any part of the website. To get us started I posted an

Around the Net
In one of the previous newsletters I mentioned some videos that I saw on Teesha Moore. Well, she just made four more videos on creating
fabric art journals.
I have an absolute love (almost obsession) with fabric, so I got pretty excited when I saw these! I can't wait to get going on them!
Speaking of art journaling, I just saw that there is a new book out called
The Journal Junkies Workshop: Visual Ammunition for the Art Addict This book looks absolutely yummy!
Another really cool mini scrapbook project I came across is another
file folder mini album.
I know I have a file folder mini album on the website, but this one is completely different and I think you'll really enjoy it!
