Vintage Mini Album

This was my FIRST attempt at making a mini album. It originally was supposed to be for National Scrapbooking Week Long Challenge. However, I didn’t get it done on time, because there were so many details that I wanted to put into this album about me. I have tell you it is NOT my idea…I was totally inspired and scraplifted many components of the album from TracyTreasures24 at …….I did tell her about it quite some time ago….and she wanted to see it, when it was done. I wish I could do an excellent video like she did….maybe on the next one…coming soon!

Here is the album’s front cover, side profile, and thickness:

Here is the first page: It’s me as a baby! With my name and birth date, there is also journaling in the small book.

Here is the next page: It’s me, my mother and father and grandmother…miss her so much!
They are original photos from 1969....The opposite page is a waterfall card….it has photos and journaling too!

The next page is my father and I…we were so close when I was a little girl. He was a key strength in life….miss him too!

The next page I made an envelope using my cricut…I added velcro for the closure and I card with all my children’s photos in it too. I made another mini book that has journaling and photo of my dh and I inside.

Here is it open for a sneak peek.

The last page, I haven’t put any photos in it yet….also need to add ribbon to the tags..
Otherwise it’s done!

Here is the view of the back.

Hope you were inspired like me!…. ?


  1. This is absolutely stunning mini album!
    Here are my vintage mini albums:

    The first - Life is BEautiful.

    and one more, not vintage, but full of hidden gats, mini books inside:
