Capture memories with these minibook ideas

From weddings to holidays - papercrafting mini albums is a great way to try scrapbooking and treasure happy memories of milestone moments in life! Not only are minibooks much less daunting than gazing at 12x12in pages of a full-on scrapbook, they're a perfect way to make the most of photos - making sure you treasure them and look back fondly rather than losing them forever to digital folders on your computer! We've got five lovely ideas for minibooks to get you started....

Jubilee party scrapbook layout

One of our favourite things about events like the Diamond Jubilee Street Party is the chance to get together with our friends & neighbours! Super-scrapbooker Ifa Zainon loves it when her local village gets together to celebrate - so she's made this scrapbook layout about their parties. We love the mini union jack bunting, held in place with brads, and her egg & spoon race brings back fond memories of school sports days! Thanks for joining the party Ifa x
