meaningful minis giveaway | ella publishing co.

9.10.2012  at 5:00 AM

My love of creating mini albums is no secret to those of you that are regular readers of this blog. I've made a few, that's for sure. Okay, more than a few. Well, let me tell you about the newest eBook, Meaningful Minis, from Ella Publishing author Elizabeth Dillow.


It includes 12 fully finished mini-albums featuring a wide range of purposes and sizes: from a little flip book about pogo-sticking to a set of gift albums for family friends with a deployed dad to a tribute to motherhood complete with merit badges. And how about this one dedicated to Instagram pics.



 Here's a little about the talented author:
Whatever you make, make it meaningful.
Elizabeth Dillow applies this philosophy to everything she does, and Meaningful Mini Albums may be the meaningfulest* of them all. She poured her heart and soul into 12 amazing albums (some itty bitty and others merely small) that will inspire you to tell your best stories in creative new ways. And your purchase includes a free video tour of 7 of the 12 albums. (Details on page 2 of your download.)
The beauty of a mini-album is that you can pack BIG memories inside. And these are projects with a clear beginning and end, which means you get to accomplish something grand and set the finished product on the shelf for all the world to see, flip through, and enjoy. Aren't you dying to think mini?
*Yes, we made up a word, but we're in good company. Shakespeare made up words all the time.

the giveaway {is now closed}
Elizabeth has kindly offered one of my readers a copy of her Meaningful Minis eBook for their own. Leave a comment sharing whether if you've ever made a mini book, or how many mini books you've made,  what stops you from making a min book if you've never made one...or just leave a comment if that's more your style.

  1. I've made one mini, but I have plans to make some more - I've actually got all the stuff out on my space for a daybook to document a weekend trip the hubby and I took last year. I think I don't make them that often because of picture overlaod - I have too many I love and I can't fit them all in.

  2. Ooooohhh I love the instagram mini--what a clever idea, since most of my pics are from my phone. I have made tons of minis when I was a child, before minis were probably called minis ;) This post has sparked my creative side... guess I know what I'll be doing today ;) p.s. I hope I win! {loyallovinglearning}at{gmail}dot{com}

  6. I've made many minis. I love how easy it is to incorporate a theme into one compact little album and that they can be relatively quickly.

  10. I have a basketful of minis that I've made over the years. I love that they are so little and so easy to make - no agonizing decisions over embellies! I have an idea for another one featuring our 8 beautiful grandchildren. And I love Elizabeth's ideas and her cute kids :) Thanks for sharing - and your minis always fascinate me!

  11. I've made many mini books over the years. I love making them for small events that deserve more than a page and the kids like handling them too.

  16. I've made about 5 so far with plans to make many more! I've been going through my stash and creating kits, all I need to do is edit and print my photos! Oh, and find-no, make time to scrap!

  18. I've done one or two as part of a layout so that I could fit more pictures on the page. But I haven't focused on making a stand alone mini book. It is something that I would like to do and this book would be perfect to get the ideas flowing. Thanks for the chance to win it.

  20. I've made several minis, though they're in varying states of completion. I'm currently making one as part of the 30 Days of Lists challenge.

  21. I always like Elizabeth's work but this looks like a cute little book you could have written!! I love minis! They are more fun for me to put together than scrapping a bunch of 12x12 of an event and help me to pick out the photos that really tell the story. I have "mini-ized" many events like Christmas, Easter, fall, and birthdays, etc but am thinking I would like to do a theme. No need to enter me for giveaway...just wanted to say hi!

  22. I have never made one before, mostly for lack of time, but I think it's an great idea. I would love to win one!

  24. You are the queen of minis! After doing your summer mini a year or so ago, I am a convert. My boys look at it ALL THE TIME! They love it! I'm a firm believer in the power of minis! :)

  25. I made some mini books using paperbags with tags for 7 members of my
    family. Came out really nice and they loved them! I've done some other
    minis using small board books from Arby's that came out really cute.

  26. I've made several mini albums and love each one, but not in a long while as I am out of ideas. This would be perfect to help me grow the basket

  27. OH MY! I would love to win--I've never made a mini. I'm a bit intimidated by them--what do I make them about? What papers should I use? How big should it be?


    THANKS for the chance to win:) sbmmhoover at yahoo dot com

  30. I would love to have one mini album, I have never make one but I sure like to. I find this album very beautiful and so very right for me. I sure can learn a lot if I would be the lucky one.
    Thank you for giving me one.

  31. I have made two Minis, and love that they have a beginning, an end, and something about being able to touch the photos and memorabilia makes it feel so alive! I want to make a mini for my brother in tribute to our Mom, what a big task! Email is kissofwhimsy at hotmail dot com
