Creating Mini Scrapbook Albums

Creating Mini Scrapbook Albums

What fun to get 8-10 women together for a scrap, to make mini albums. The 6x6 albums work great. The albums can be pre-bought or pre-ordered.

If you plan the scrap a few weeks in advance, everyone will have a chance to look through their own photos and decide what they’d like to put into their mini album.

Some great suggestions for these mini albums are:

1. A day at the races
2. The picnic in the park
3. The championship ball game
4. The parade floats
5. Cars from the car show

Of course there are tons of other themes you can choose. Maybe you want to just send grandma some updated photos of the kids.

Mini albums help use up your scrap paper and loose supplies. Ask everyone coming to bring their “extras”. I tend to have many tools for scrapbooking, but if I know someone has a tool I don’t own, I’ll ask them to bring that along too.

I know some women enjoy snacks. I usually don’t provide snacks as no one wants spilled food, or sticky fingers on the scrapbook supplies. However one suggestion that is fun is to all have dessert after the scrapping is done and the table is cleared off.

Mini albums do not have a lot of space for embellishments, so often the mini album can be completed in one evening. It’s also fun to use paper and supplies that others have brought that you may not own.

If you know someone on a really tight budget, invite her also. It’s a great opportunity for her to create a great keepsake and not have to spend money on supplies herself. Let her know there will be plenty of supplies. Suggest she come early so no one knows what she did or didn’t bring along to share. Or make a suggestion of a few supplies she can purchase for under $5, such as stickers, then she too will be contributing.

When seeing the creations of 8 other women, you may also get ideas for your next scrapbook.

At the end of the evening, most of what’s left truly is garbage now, so clean up is a breeze.

Make sure to take plenty of photos of your get together, photos that can be used to create your next mini album
