Christmas Mini Album
By Einat Kessler
“Hi dear crafty friends! Einat Kessler here with a new project. Today I’m sharing this festive mini album that will fit all your holiday photos.
I love creating mini albums from scratch. I feel like I have more creative freedom when I can decide what size the mini album will be, how many pages it’ll have etc. This mini album is no different! I have a great tutorial for you showing you how to build the cover and the pages.
How to Create a Journaling Card Mini Album
Instead of using the paper collection for the pages I decided to use the beautiful Ephemera Cards to create the pages. After creating the cover and the binding mechanism I attached the cards back to back. I created pockets and divided pages just to make it more fun!
Here are some of the pages:
The Ephemera cards are double sided so there are so many patterns to play with!
Tip #1: When creating a mini album always make it thick enough to allow room for the photos.
Tip #2: Use a thick enough chipboard for the cover. It needs not only to hold the cover but the entire weight of the pages and photos.
- Winter Wonderland 12×12
- St. Nicholas Journaling and Ephemera Cards
- Flowers and embellishments
Have a wonderful holiday season and a Merry Christmas!”

Master Detective Mini Album

Tip: When embellishing the cover don’t add just cut out paper images from the collection. Add more dimension and interest with an object that goes with your theme. For example: I used two little small “evidence” bottles and added little images on them.
