Do you love scrapbooking? If you do and you have been engaging in scrapbooking for a while now, then you may have need of something new and different to spice up your scrapbooking hobby.
Now, you may have looked at, borrowed, and bought several scrapbooking books about layouts, design, and whatnot – so much so that you feel that you have exhausted all of your scrapbooking reserves. You may find that as time goes by, you are pretty much repeating your layouts and designs. This phase can be termed as “scrapbooker’s block”.
I for one have actually experienced this. After months of non stop scrapbooking, I felt like all of my creative juices have run dry. While I had tons of references for new scrapbooking ideas, I found myself wanting to do something “different” but yet within the scrapbooking scene.
Luckily, I stumbled upon a book – Outstanding Mini Albums: 50 Ideas For Creating Mini Scrapbooks. Now, if you are thinking that this is just one of those run of the mill scrapbook layout books, you are wrong.
