Welcome to our newest Contributors

I’d like to welcome 2 wonderful new contributors to Outstanding Mini Albums!  I’m so excited for them both to share some of their awesome creations with all of us!

Meet Kimi:

Hi, my name is Kim, but everyone calls me Kimi and I am a SAHS (Stay at home scrap booker). I am married and have three grown sons. All of which have left home. So I have heaps of time on my hands for crafting. I fell in love or became obsessed with Scrapbooking in 2005 when I wanted to give my husband something different and handmade for Christmas. I made him a mini album with photo’s from his childhood. That was it for me. I was totally hooked. I have since ventured off into various aspects paper crafting, but I am always drawn back to creating mini’s and not a month goes by that I don’t create at least one – be it big or small. I have been crafting most of my life. I learnt to crochet from my grandmother when I was 10 and have been doing it ever since. I also learnt to sew from my Mother and have dabbled in quilting; cloth dolls; embroidery and small patchwork items. I now use a lot of these skills in my paper crafting projects and I sew more paper than fabrics these days. One of my most favoured styles is shabby chic/vintage and I also love to dabble a little in grunge. I am super excited to be a part of Outstanding Mini Albums. I can’t wait to share my my unique scrappiness and creativity with you and my fellow contributors here at Outstanding Mini Albums.


And meet Kimmy!


Hi, I’m Kimmy Jaster. I live in the same tiny Arizona town I grew up in, 2 doors down from my childhood home. I’ve been scrapbooking since I was in junior high school (I won’t tell you how long ago THAT was!) I am currently on the design team for Punky Sprouts (a fabulous mini manufacturer) and True XoXo (a challenge blog). I love all sorts of paper crafting, but mini albums are my favorite medium. I’ve got 3 baskets full of completed ones, plus a whole bin of blank ones. Ten months out of the year I teach 4th grade. I like to spend my summers traveling. I don’t have any kids of my own, my students fill my heart. I have 3 beautiful dogs, that are spoiled rotten.
