Making a Mini Album

with iCrafter

This month, the DCC (Designer Crafts Connection) is being sponsored by i-Crafter. If you aren’t familiar with i-Crafter, you are going to love their products, they are so creative. I first experienced i-Crafter at a Creativation conference and their booth was all the buzz as a new company displaying products. They have been going strong ever since.

I would first like to thank Designer Crafts Connection for the opportunity to work with amazing companies and designers. And specifically for this post, I would like to thank i-Crafter for providing materials used with this project.

There are nine other projects created for this Designer Crafts Connection hop. Please take a moment to visit all the projects to see how each designer worked with i-Crafter.


The image above shows what i-Crafter sent to me. I love the little house dies and the 3D embossing folder, but I am setting them aside for another project. All those little clear pockets hold embellishments for a mini-album, which the parts were also included. A detailed direction document showed how the mini-album gets put together. I put mine together pretty much as explained.

The Pages:

I jumped in and put the mini-album together. After designing the front and back cover, I started on the inside. There was no way i-Crafter could send all these dies for the album and embellishments, but it was amazing that they sent all the parts pre-cut and labeled. It was a fun project to put together and one I think they could easily sell as kits.

While the mini-album follows a theme, there is a lot of variety from page to page. The image above has a storage envelope, embellishments, and an acetate page. Each of the three acetate pages has a word on them: Live, Laugh, Love.

The theme is also carried throughout using coordinating papers and shapes. The mini-album form is held together with an accordion binding which is so clever. The video below will walk you through the entire process and then show each page when finished.
