A sneak peek into Mini Madness!

For those of you who don't know, I'm teaching a class right now over at NoelMignon.com called Mini Madness. It's all about building mini books - the types, the materials, the binging styles, and lots of links and tutorials to getting you going!

Here's a sneak of something I'm working on right now that goes hand in hand with the class:

 And that's all you get for today, because man oh man do I have a lot of work to do!!
If you haven't signed up for the class, but would like to, you still can! This is a self-paced class, and it will stay posted for a while to come.

Mini Madness is Getting Closer!!


That's right friends!!

Noel and I have decided to push the class back one week so that we all have more time to get that suuuuper adorable Hudson Valley kit in our hands before we get to work on all of our class projects. And I for one am so excited to be using it for the class! I have a stack of seven mini albums/journals/notebooks that we'll be making together in the class, and this extra week just gives me some extra time to make another project to add to the class! So we'll have at least eight projects to make together and I'll be showing TONS of others and explaining how to make them all yourselves. It's gonna be so fun!

It is at this point that I am channeling Agnes in the video below about how much I LOVE what we've got going on here!



We are going to have so much fun learning all kinds of different techniques to make your own mini albums - bindings, materials, long-term and event-focused, project types, and just general awesomeness!!
I am going to be using lots of different materials - many from the upcoming Hudson Valley kit that begins shipping tomorrow, and believe me, you're not going to want to miss it!!

There's nothing I find more satisfying to make than minis, whether they are completely made by hand or start with a pre-fab book. I'll be covering both types, but of course, you will always put your unique spin on it. We'll be doing a little mixed-media, a little stitching, a little padding, a little of everything!!

This will be a great opportunity to make some fun albums for yourself or gifts for friends and family.

I'll be giving out some awesome printables for not only theme albums, but also to-do lists and calendars - you won't want to miss it!!
