    • Create a Simple Album Cover

      Design by Erin Clarkson

      Keep the cover of your mini album simple with a large title printed on white cardstock, a few strips of different color cardstock, and minimal accents. The fewer accents on the cover, the fewer elements that may fall off as people look through the mini album.

    • Include Journaling in Strips

      Design by Erin Clarkson

      Choose a font similar to your handwriting and type your journaling to save time. Print on cardstock and trim your words into strips for an easy design element.

    • Keep the Focus on Photos

      Design by Erin Clarkson.

      Sometimes the only words you need are on a sticker accent. Layer pieces of cardstock behind a sweet black-and-white photo for a striking design.

    • Convert Photos to Black-and-White

      Design by Erin Clarkson

      Free your color scheme by converting photos to black-and-white. That eliminates the worry about colors clashing on your mini album pages.

    • Add a Rub-on Border

      Design by Erin Clarkson

      Add a little pattern to a piece of cardstock by applying a rub-on border. The rub-on adds a bit of visual interest without adding bulk to the album.

    • Punch Cardstock Circles

      Design by Erin Clarkson
