Mini Scrapbook Challenge

Ever wonder what creative scrappers would do with the same basic materials? Well, I have and decided to put the oh so talented artists on Etsy to the test with a Mini Scrapbook Challenge!

It's easy to work with a large scrapbook album of 12"x12", but what would you do with a mini scrapbook album of only 2"x1.5."? The album itself is made from a single piece of 12" scrapbooking paper which has been folded to create a 5 page book with a self cover.


With the help of DesignsByLucinda, I got the contest rolling. I was really surprised by the enthusiastic response my challenge received. I had 20 people sign up within the first day of announcing the contest. The rules are very simple, take the Mini Album and scrap it however you want. I will post each finished album here for everyone to see. Each artist will have the opportunity to share a little bit about themselves, the vision for their album and their own artwork.

Each album has been carefully packaged in a handmade box to protect during shipping. Here are the albums all ready to mail out!


Keep checking back to see what develops with these Mini Albums!

sewphisticate, how beautiful! The boxes are just as pretty as the little albums, what a great presentation. I'm secretly hoping I get that wildly tropic colored one on the right, but I'll be tickled with any of them.... I'll be blogging about your challenge. :-)
