Mini albums are so easy to create! You'll find that mini size scrapbooks work well with wallet size photos or you can simply cut out sections from larger photos to custom fit the pages.

Have fun and apply your own sense of style when designing the pages in your album. Sometimes it's helpful to look at examples to get layout ideas, but there's really no right or wrong way - it's whatever appeals to you! To personalize your album, it's nice to add some journaling to your pages and it's so easy to do. Select an acid-free pen, designed for scrapbooking, and simply start adding names, simple phrases, and dates near the photos on your pages.
Mini albums are a fun way to share photos of friends, family, and special occasions. They also make wonderful gifts!
