About this class

Where is your Favorite Escape? Whether it’s near or far, a restful vacation or a weekend getaway, these mini albums are the perfect place to capture your photos and stories! Heidi Swapp is back at it again, and this time she is teaching you how to create a gate-fold, clear cover mini-album with a DIY book-binding technique! *One for you to keep, and one to give away because we will be making TWO!  Learn to leverage the clear cover by creating super cool layered looks with amazing impact and possibilities! Heidi will walk you step-by-step through the process of the DIY book construction and share her favorite tricks for adding photos and telling stories inside. In this class, you will learn to make 2 different mini-books using the same process, each with some fun twists like adding windows in your pages, pockets for extra photos, and all kinds of page tabs!

All class lessons will be available on Thursday, April 22nd at 8am ET.
