"A European vacation and CityScapes were made for each other!  Lucky for me, my brother and sister-in-law went to Germany and Benelux this spring and I thought a mini for them would be the perfect Christmas gift!  Even more fun for me is that a lot of their photos were of places I have been so it was a walk down memory lane.  We lived in Frankfurt, Germany when I was teenager and my brother even had a photo of where we used to live!" ~Maggi

Tip:  Cover each page of your mini with a sheet of paper first.  Then you have the "bones" of your mini done.  Now you can add layers, embellishments and photos to make each page unique.

Tip: Mini album covers get a lot of wear and tear.  You can make them durable by using matte medium to adhere all your papers and coat over the cover.  If you have dimensional fussy cut pieces of your covers, matte medium will give them strength and help prevent tearing.

need to make this!!!

OMG! Such a stunning project!!! This album is like a treasure chest!!!

Lovely album, Maggie! It is just perfect for a European vacations!

Forgive me if I rave too much, but Maggi's mini pages sent me over the moon.They're in such perfect balance and proportion that the photos jump off the page. Background color is part of it, perfect placement is another. Usually your eye is pulled in so many directions that it's hard to see the photos. This woman needs to teach how to make a mini!

beautiful!! I love this paper collection

Amazing mini album! TFS!

What a treat to see the photos in this delightful mini album! Thanks for the tip about using matte medium to protect the cover...good idea.

Thank you for sharing this beautiful mini album! My husband spent three years in Germany when he was a small child, Army brat, :/). Unfortunately both of my in-laws are now deceased but my husband would love an album like this!
