Mini Album Makers Challenge - Exciting News!

Hello Friends, this is one of two posts today.

I have some very exciting news to share with you today!  I am thrilled to tell you that I have joined the brand new Mini Album Makers Challenge Design Team which was set up by the very talented Autumn Clark.  I am so excited!!

There is a lot of information over on the main Challenge Blog Launch where you will be introduced to the other members of this wonderful team, along with all the details about our first challenge.

Mini Album Makers Challenge will focus on handmade mini albums, scrapbooks, journals and book arts.  It is intended to be a place to share and learn more about creating such books.  Our monthly challenge theme is 'Any Handmade Book Goes'.  In addition, each month on the 14th, one member of the team will share a full tutorial on the challenge blog which we hope will inspire you to join in and / or make your own handmade book(s).

For the month of September our Sponsor is the amazingly talented Designer, Seth Apter!  Seth is a Mixed Media Artist/Designer who travels the world, demonstrating and teaching.

Here is the amazing prize on offer from Seth for one lucky winner!
We would love to see you join in our very first challenge HERE.

For our first month, the Design Team will be sharing mini albums, a favourite that we have created in the past.  I chose a journal album I created a few years ago, to house some very special memories when I lived in Canada.
If you would like to see my little album in more detail, you can see it HERE.

Another favourite is a sea themed project which you can see HERE.
And finally, a recent favourite, using Seth Apter stamps HERE.

Please do join us, share your art with us and pick up useful tips and techniques too!

Thanks so much for your visit, I hope to see you again soon!

Hugs,  Anne xx
