Introducing 3D Vignette Mini-Albums

3D Vignettes were introduced almost 2 years ago and along the journey, our readers have begged us not to abandon the concept but to keep adding on.  As always, your wish is our command!  Introducing 3D Vignette Mini-Albums.   When the first 3D Vignettes came out, we fashioned them into mini albums using the familiar side piece and slots but now we've made it permanent with a Universal Hinge.  Plus we've added a whole collection of dies you can use inside the mini-album including two new shaped card profiles and a new Cinch and Go Cottage Bloom Flower that can be used as a dimensional flower or a flat flower inside the mini-album.  Stay tuned as you see a mini-album from each Creative Team Member and card that highlights one of the dies used in the mini-album.

About 3D-Vignette Mini Albums

When the response to the first 3D Vignette cards turned into mini albums blog hop brought such a positive response, readers asked for more.  Becca designed an easy to fold Universal Hinge that makes it easy to convert your 3D Vignette cards into  Mini Albums.  Staying true to her mix and match budget sensibility, of course, all of the elements of this new collection can be used to make flat cards, can be used with original 3D Vignette designs, and older 3D Vignette dies can be refreshed and used with the mini-albums.

Best of all, if you have ever been too overwhelmed to create a mini-album or a scrapbook page, take heart.  Since your choices are mix and match, we've taken all of the guess work out.  The small format is card-sized which makes it do-able for those of you accustomed to working on a small card size project.  We've made albums that are tiny up to 6 x 6" and 8 x 8.

My project for Today:

First up is S5-408 Grand Vaulted Cabinet Etched Dies 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection by Becca Feeken. S5-409 Universal Accordion Fold Spine is an unmissable die that agrees with any mini album.  This die is so helpful. Making the spine is so easy and quick.

To create this Mini-Album I used a delicate and pastel paper from Loveland Collection from ScrapBoys. For most of the pages I used a gold paper under a cut dies.

I used a 3D Interactive Pivot Banner to make a little surprise for people watching this album. You can put little photographs inside or have the decorative square.

On the last pages I put a Woven Trellis Side Pocket where you can get more photographs.

I used S4-1025 Sweet Cottage Flowers to decorate the first page of my mini album.

Here is what the die I've used in my mini album looks like:

For my project today I made a mini album for Valentine's Day.  There are lots of places where you can put your photos.

In addition, I've made a card using the same die I used in my mini album. I used a Candlewick Squares Dies from Candlewick Classics Collection. Then I have used a new beautiful baskets with flower die. This is a Grateful Thankful Blessed 3D Layering Dies from new Collection. It looks beautiful alone and works perfectly with S5-408 Grand Vaulted Cabinet.


These dies are available right now on the Spellbinders website —–> HERE
