Design Your Own Mini Album

Say I love you with this gorgeous album.

Looking For a Way to Say "I Love You"?

Whether it's a birthday, Christmas or a just because gift, a mini album is the perfect way to share the love! This quick, customizable album celebrates that special someone in your life! Gather some of your favorite photos, fill your heart with love and join us in making a mini album your loved ones will fall in love with!

Our Goal: Create a Handmade Album EVERYONE Will Love

Simple enough to complete in just a few hours, but flexible enough for you to add your own personal touch, the Mini Album can be a gift you create over and over again! Since you choose the page size and build the photo and journaling areas, you can match the album's theme to your photos. Give your friends a personalized gift, lovingly crafted by your hands!

What To Expect in Class

This is THE class to create a gift your loved ones will fall head over heels in love with! We've divided the class into 2 sections - one to help you design and create the album, and the other to aid with printing and assembly. You will learn how to choose from four album sizes (or mix and match), draw your own photo clipping mask and journaling block, and create an adorable number embellishment for each page - all suited to your taste. Then use the basic template you've created to quickly design multiple pages in the same style. Then it's time to print, and assemble!

You'll receive:

  • Templates for the album, including a .PSD file with four album size options: 5x7, 5x6, 5x5, and 5x4 (Note: If you already own the Type-ology class, the .PSD file is from the bonus album lesson)
  • Video instructions for creating your own mini album
  • A full digital kit, including gorgeous, softly textured papers and embellishments
  • .PDF instruction sheet for easy to follow along instructions

The .PSD file is set on a letter-sized sheet so you can print two pages at once. In no time at all, you'll have a fully finished album that you can gift to someone!

How To Prepare for Class

Here's what you'll want to begin gathering for this particular class:

Any version of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements

A printer

A binding tool, binding rings, or commercially-made album

Coordinating cardstock (optional)

(Note: The collage paper referenced in this class is from a lesson in Type-Ology. Instructions on how to make the collage paper and recolor it can be found in the full Type-ology course!)

I also recommend that you take my free Course 1: We've Just Begun class before enrolling in this class. It'll give you the following skills you'll need:

Opening, saving, and closing Photoshop documents

Adding photos and using clipping masks

Adding type in a single line

Printing from Photoshop

I'll Be Right There With You

This Mini Album class is a great introduction into creating handmade photo gifts for your friends and family. By the end of class, you will know how to design, print and assemble a truly unique gift for all those you love! What's better than that? We love to see your creations, and with every course, there are many different ways to get in touch to show off your art, or ask a question! Register now, and I'll see you in class!
