Altered media mini-albums

Hi, folks, I was just browsing my YouTube site and thought I would post some of my altered media mini-albums here, for your interest. The three I have posted below were my first attempts at various types of mini-albums.

It was a really important year for birthdays in our family, which you will see as you read on. And, it was even more challenging, because three important birthdays took place between December 10, 2011 and January 28, 2012–so close together and during the busiest time of the year. I was really proud that I managed to get them all done…and, it was soooo worth it in the end!

Chipboard mini-album for my son, Neil

The first one I made was for my son, Neil’s, 40th birthday. I used chipboard pages, covered in vintage papers. The theme was “You’re a classic,” which, in this mother’s heart he is. It was a real hit and was certainly the most unique birthday card he had ever received. Here is the video…

Toilet tissue tube mini-album for my granddaughter, Lindsay

The next one I made was for my granddaughter, Lindsay’s 21st birthday: This one is made from toilet tissue rolls. It was fun and easy to create, and Lindsay really loved it! I secretly hope she will tuck it away and someday show it to her grandchildren.

Envelope mini-album for my grandson, Austin

The next one was for my grandson, Austin’s, 18th birthday! I made this one from business envelopes I had left over from when I sent out my C.V., way back before e-mail…hmmmm, that brings back memories…but that’s another story.

I hope you like my mini-albums, and more importantly, I hope they inspire you to create some mini-albums of your own. I promise you they will be a hit with the recipients and will likely become treasured keepsakes to show future generations.

Thanks, so much, for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

And……

“Digistamps 4 Joy was born in July 2010. What began as a “brainwave” developed into a rather successful journey…  Started by Mel M, and with the help of talented artists and fellow South Africans JenLee, Margy, Sam, Laura and Mel herself, Digistamps 4 Joy was soon reaching an international audience.  Digistamps was a rather unheard of and new craft to many South Africans with most only having access to them if they had a credit card.  Mel and Jen started brainstorming and soon came up with the idea of starting an online store entirely accessible to all South Africans.  Mel having the experience in web and graphic design, and Jen being a wonderful illustrator work together as a team and produce most of the images many people around the world have come to know and love.  Among the many images, you’re sure to find something you like… from fun and whimsical to cute and funny right through to serious and beautiful. Every month a new freebie is available on the website.

The winner will get her choice of 6 images from the store
