Hi creators! I must admit, I haven’t been making as many mini albums lately. My mom reminds me often that she hasn’t received any minis in a while. She loves it when I give her little mini scrapbook albums. I didn’t realise how much they meant to her until one night, she said, I look at your albums when I am feeling sad; they make me happy. How sweet! You just never know how doing the littlest thing can help someone…
What to send in a Christmas care package to a niece who’s interstate? Well, homemade cookies and candy, of course! But to personalise it a bit, I found some favourite photos of her, printed them at 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and matted some with Denim Blues paper to fill the pages of a Mini Album. I tucked in a little note of encouragement and a few gift cards. Finally, I accented the pages with Denim Blues Embellishments.
When I saw the Made with Love Collection, I knew I had to make a mini album!!
Mini albums are the perfect handmade gift to give a friend or family member.
Now that we have all had our cup or cups of coffee/tea/etc, I am sure that the creative juices are flowing.
