Stamp-a-faire Mini Book Challenge

By July 21, 2012Stamp-a-faire

Are you ready to roll onto our next set of tutorials for the day?!?!  We've got some REALLY cool things to show you with this post, so hang onto your badges campers!

Papertrey Ink offers a variety of fantastic scrapbooking products, including lots of fun stuff for mini books!  Four of our team members have put together tutorials for some easy mini books that can be adapted to nearly any theme or occasion!  You can use yours later to hold all of the fun photos and memories you have made this year at Stamp-a-faire Summer Camp.  Or perhaps some shots from a vacation you took this summer.  Either way, you'll have something special all ready to go when you want it!

Your challenge is to pick one of the mini books from below and utilize it in a project of your own.  You can re-create an exact replica of the designer's project or reinterpret it in your own way.

Here's a look at what the team has prepared for the Mini Book Challenge!

Betsy has a fun little book that uses one of the Card Base-ics dies!

    These mini books are delightful. I had to get off my chair and go out for a morning run so I can be re-energized for crafting!

    I absolutely LOVE the mini book tutorial. I would love to make some of these but I have never known just how to go about it. There’s going to be no stopping me now. I’ll be scrapping everything that is not nailed down. Thanks Miss Melissa, you have the cutest voice 🙂
