Blog Giveaway! Mini Albums in an Evening

Mini is big! Cute little albums, from pinky-size to palm-size, are a fun, creative and FAST way to share your memories. And Simple Scrapbooks' new special issue, Mini Albums in an Evening, offers 58 ways to do just that. It's got projects for travel, holidays, baby, pets, school... you name it, there's an idea here for scrapbooking it.

Because the book's focus is on techniques and shortcuts, not specific products, it's easy to adapt any of these ideas to work with digital tools. Check out Candice Palmer's album that packs details of eight birthday celebrations into a single book. Or follow Angie Lucas' lead and create a coffee table-worthy celebration of the people you love with odds and ends left over from other projects.

I got a copy of this issue in the mail last week and I'm already inspired... so inspired I might even sit down and scrapbook! (Shhh! Don't tell anyone!) Plus, I've got TWO additional copies to share with Digital Scrapbooking readers. Just leave a comment on this post with your name and a comment telling what you'd like to scrap in a mini-album, and I'll randomly select two names as winners. Get your entry in no later than midnight Pacific time on Tuesday, August 5 for consideration.

Find out more about Mini Albums in an Evening or order a copy today at Simple Scrapbooks' online shop. Good luck, and happy scrapping!
