Making Mini Albums-Q&A with Helen Griffin

23 Jan 2019 0 Comments All, New Launches

Helen Griffin loves ketchup and also documenting her memories! In this Q&A Helen answers our questions (we had many, plus some fun, rapid-fire ones too) about making mini albums and gives us tips for how to go about the creative process. She also shares helpful advice for newbies! So if you’ve never made an album before, make sure to watch her interview below.

The Simply Made Crafts Album collection (exclusively at Craftstash) makes it easy to create a variety of mini albums. The range of die sets available allow you to fashion a customised album with pockets, belly-bands, pull-out elements, and even a waterfall page. But there’s also gift bag dies which when paired with a binding die, can be made into mini album too. In fact, the photos pictured below were made with the Simply Made Crafts bag dies. Amazing, right? But don’t let these albums intimidate, they’re perfect for beginners and advance crafters alike!

These mini album dies allow you to create albums quickly and easily! They cut your pages perfectly, but also deboss your paper so that you know exactly where to burnish you score lines. You can focus more of your time on decorating your albums than assembling them which is where the true crafty fun begins! Helen shares lots of ideas for what to include in your albums in her Q&A (you can watch her first Q&A with us here). Here are a few ideas of what to save to document your memories:

  • pictures
  • ticket stubs
  • wrist bands for amusement parks
  • sea shells
  • sand
  • museum brochures
  • receipts
  • napkins with logos
  • restaurant business cards
  • menus
  • event programmes
