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 Projects For Today I used this Two dies to create this wedding anniversary album and pink flower brooch.



Here is what the die I've used in my mini-album actually looks like.

 S5-409 Spellbinders Shapeabilities Universal Accordion Fold Spine Etched Dies 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection by Becca Feeken

For my project today I made to this wedding anniversary album. Flower made from silk foamiran coloured with purple soft oil pastels and leaves cut out from paper and shadowed with green alcohol ink. I add some pre-made purple small flowers.


In addition, I've made a Brooch using the S4-1025 SpellbindersShapeabilities Sweet Cottage Flowers Etched Dies 3D Vignette Mini Album Collection by Becca Feeken I used in my mini album.
To create this I used standard foamiran and pink soft oil pastel. Leaves cut out from paper and shadowed with green alcohol ink.
