Today we're introducing the long-awaited How to Make a Smiles Mini-Book by Stacy Julian! (If that doesn't put a big grin on your face, we don't know what will.)

This instructional mini eBook (for just $3.99) will teach you how to create your own "smiles" mini-album start to finish. You can follow the literal step-by-step instructions, or you can try Stacy's helpful tutorial that teaches you how to open yourself up to "creative accidents" of your own. It's like the difference between giving a woman a fish and teaching a woman to fish. And even if you don't like fish (with their beady little eyes) or fishing (so slimy!), I promise you'll love this project. Read all about it here!

The How to Make a Smiles Mini-Book was brought to you by the following beautiful smiles:

Stacy Julian's, who created the project in the first place (originally for her 20 Simple Secrets of Happy Scrapbookers eBook, but we thought it needed an eBook of its own) and supplied the raw instructions for Ella to transform magically into an eBook.

Cathy Zielske's, who graciously donated her talents and her design time to this charitable eBook! Half the proceeds will be donated to Operation Smile, a charitable organization that treats facial birth defects in underprivileged children worldwide.

Ella's. And while we admit her demure smile is hard to see, it's definitely there behind those tusks. She's thrilled to be introducing her first charity item for sale today, and she can't contain her glee!

135,000 children's smiles worldwide who have been helped by Operation Smile. As you contemplate the beautiful, smiling faces in your family today, we encourage you to make a donation of your own, or buy the Smiles eBook, and we'll donate for you!
