Mini Album Mania Blog Hop!


Welcome to the last stop on the Mini Album Mania Blog Hop. If this is where you started, please take a moment to go to the Design Team Blog and start at the beginning. If you arrived here from Allie's blog, you have arrived at the final stop!

All of the participants in this hop created albums using tutorials from the Mini Album Mania CD. The CD contains 35 Mini Album tutorials in pdf format, created to print on 8-1/2"x 11" paper. The ideas are wonderfully creative and come in all shapes and sizes!  You can order your CD right here:
The album I am showing you today is the Gatefold Accordion Album. This neat album does not need any sort of binding tool -- you create your own! The pages fold into one another, creating a gorgeous flap-type effect. Here are some more views for you (click on any of these images to see them close up).

I hope you enjoyed the hop! Take a minute and leave a comment here; one random winner will receive her very own CD! Make sure to leave your email address so that I can contact you if you win.Thanks for joining us today!

Beautiful album, Pat. This one can hold so many pictures. Great to use for a gift!

JanetH said...

Oh Pat I love it! Love that I dont need extra tools to make it! Love it that you are so clever and that you share your creativity with others.
This was such a great idea - I have seen work from very talented ladies and I may never have found them.
Thank you for your ideas and ability to 'make it happen'

I like the gate fold album and especially the way you chose the scenery to highlight the pictures of the girls.

Ps I couldn't figure out how to leave a comment to Jane. I liked her birthday album , but especially liked the compact one. Her daughter was awesome to donate her hair. Could you pass this on to her. And thank you all for sharing the hop.

Beautiful album This would make a perfect momentum for special occasions. Than I have a lot of pictures, to many for a page, but this would solve that problem.

Great idea, beautiful album and those sunsets are glorious - has inspired me to do something with my niece's wedding photos against a sunset in Rarotonga.

BeeJay said...

Hi Pat, I have already left a comment, am new to this commenting thing - you say to leave an email address so that you can contact me if I win (fingers crossed) but cannot see an email address on any of the other comments, and the fact that I am signed in might mean you can "see" my contact details?
