What is a scrapbook mini album?
A scrapbook mini album is simply a small-sized scrapbook album. There are different standard sizes for scrapbooking albums; the largest is 12″ x 12″. A 12″x12″ album WOULDN’T be considered a “mini album”; it’s pretty big. An 8″x10″ album wouldn’t be considered a mini album, either. A mini album is typically smaller than that. So far the smallest mini albums I’ve ever seen measured about 3″ tall. A more typical size is about 6″x6″. You can also have mini albums that are 8″x8″ or other sizes. It’s possible to have mini albums in a variety of irregular shapes and sizes.
