A 3×8 mini album of selfies

Hello, lovely Paislee Press peeps!

It’s Essie here, with a mini album to share.

I have a long time love affair with mini albums (as evidenced here, here, and here).

I adore the way they get me out of the routines I’ve built around my regular memory keeping, to try different styles, sizes, topics, and ideas.

This particular mini is in 3×8 size, because I’d never done anything in that scale before. I used Instax photos, because I thought they’d lend themselves well to that format, and I chose the High Five range because it had the right blend of prints and patterns to work on both the 3×4 and the 3×8 pocket sizes.


I made a process video for this project and you can watch it here:


I hope you like this little album, and that it inspires you to try making something in a format you haven’t tried before!

See you soon!

Essie x
