We are very happy to share the talent of our Biker Chick team with some seriousl fun ideas for a mini book with our Hello Spring! Collection.
Biker Chick Shanna Vineyard made this fun album.
I was so excited to create a mini album using Hello Spring! I designed this with a friend in mind who just gave birth to her first baby…. A GIRL! This line and all the fun embellies works perfectly for a baby girl or even a baby boy album. There’s endless possibilities really. I hope you enjoy it.
Please see Shanna's blog Art Made with Heart for more pages of her wonderful album.

We also have a mini book from Biker Chick Robbie Herring. Here is what she had to say about her book...
I really love how bright and fun this collection is and how it fits so perfectly with Easter pictures. I used the Canvas Covered Chipboard Album. This album is great! The inside pages that you can choose to cover yourself are 6x6 which is great because you can use the 6x6 paper pad. It's so easy to use!
I used the Favorite Pieces to build the sticker tree. I added some foam dots behind a few of the flower for extra dimension and added a few jewels, too. I cut down the paper for the front because I wanted some of the canvas to show.
This page includes a couple of the Journal tags for the design. Instead of listing the answers for the questions on the card, I cut it to make it appear longer behind the picture and used it as a design element. More foam dots allow for layering and clustering the chipboard pieces.
You can see that this picture is from a different time. If you don't have enough pictures of an event, consider using pictures from several different times to tell your story. All of the pictures in my album are from Easter activities, but taken during different times and activities.
Be sure to leave room for journaling in your Mini Albums. I like to do a page or two that is decorated, but with plenty of room left over to journal. I made the center paper by using Word and adding lines and a matching border. I like to have lines to journal when possible, so I decided to include them here. To keep them from overwhelming the embellishments and other pretty details, try making the lines a very light grey.

Biker Chick Jenny Chesnick shares this super creative and festive mini book.
Tip from Jen: Mini albums do NOT have to be stressful. I actually most of my mini albums without photos first! Instead of stressing over the perfect photo I focus on creating something I love. You can always go back with that "perfect" set of photos later!
