here is a sneak peek of the next project share, made by a super special friend I met back in 2019, Tamberly. We met at local event I was a vedor at, here in central California ( they drove out a couple hours out to find me ) and we've all been friends ever since. She spent years on this album that I am soon to show you and it by far is one of the most cherished items I have. Here is us on our most recent hangout - before parting ways for now.

It was a fun day and I am stoked to show you her book in full detail soon 🤍🌱 She used the 8 x 10 mini but really flew away with her own incredible imagination 🥹

Good Evening my crafty friends!  I am from a small town in Iowa of about 1200 people.  I am a nurse by day and crafter by night.  I am a mother of 3 grown sons, 1 daughter, 1 bonus daughter, and grandmother of 5 grandchildren; with another coming in March.  I came across one of Frances books when looking for a cute baby album and what can I say, I'm hooked.  I love her teaching style and the constant encouragement she gives during tutorials.  I look forward to seeing all the beautiful creations you all come up with.  God bless! My last project was a waterfall folio for a baby shower.

Hello creatives! I'm located in Los Angeles, CA. I've mostly made greeting cards and one very intensive exploding box, but stopped crafting regularly a few years ago. My friend inspired me to work on a memory book and after some Googling, found Frances' incredible videos. Amanda's album drew me in, but it was the class on how to design a mini album that convinced me to subscribe. I'm so looking forward to my first album, but also very nervous and intimidated. Thank you in advance for this community!

I am Angela from Buckeye AZ. I too found Frances by accident when searching for album designs. My first YBM album was in 2020, the 8x8 Baby album as a gift for a conworker having her first baby. I decided to make 2 at the same time and being it was my first album, it took me forever, at least it seemed that way! My friend was having a girl and her nursery theme was cherry blossoms. I struggled finding scrapbook paper with cherry blossoms and ended up finding wrapping paper that I bought online and cut down to 12 x 12 sheets. It came out beautiful! I was buying only single tutorials back then but have since subscribed for all the classes and get the podcasts too. I have made several designs since the first album mostly for gifts. Frances’ teaching style is awesome as she takes her time and gives encouragement all the way. I am getting to know her style better and can anticipate her next steps! I love the visuals and having a cut list. I post all my projects on the Mini Album Artists—YBM Students Facebook page. Thank you Frances ad hope everyone has as much fun as I do!
