I'm in love with a mini

album! I made my first mini album this past week, and I had so much fun that I've already made a second one. I love doing these!

Much like my regular scrapbooks, my minis are super simple and leave lots of room for pictures. The precious baby mini has almost no embellishments, because I don't really have any unisex ones (I'm not sure who that one is for yet). I may add some things later to make it more boy themed for my new nephew or my new GREAT nephew!

The Evalyn album is for some friends who are due to have their first baby later this month. I thought that it would be a sweet thing for them to fill with pictures and mail to an out of town family member or something :)
The little plaque on the front cover is to write in Evalyn's birthdate. The inside cover has a tag that pulls out of a pocket, and that can be written on or a photo attached to it. Each of the pages has a simple little embellishment, but mostly I just left lots of room for pictures and writing about how adorable Evie is!

So those are my very first minis. I'm already stalking ebay to purchase more chipboard books to cover and create more minis for all of the preggos in my life.


  1. Angela, those turned out so freakin' awesome!!
    I LOVE everything!! Especially the paper selection!! Great job!!
    oh, where do you find circle mini albums? I've never seen any....

  2. Thank you Janet! Your comments are always so sweet. The circle album is from the dollar spot at Michaels, it was a Christmas one ( It's supposed to be an ornament). I've had it for a few months, though.
    The paper is all DCVW Debbie mum collection.
