When I saw the Stitch Happy Card Kit I knew it would be perfect for a mini album. In the kit you get different card designs, die cuts and even felt! All perfectly coordinated to make your job really easy.
I started by trimming some of my cards to 4 inch height. I used 3 cards for my mini album, one for the cover and two for the inside pages.
Because I didn’t want my stitches to show on the back side of the card I created some 4×4 inch white squares and decorated them with some twine and thread from the Stitch Happy collection. I used mint baker’s twine, pink, citrine and gold.
I really like the thickness of the threads, your stitches stand out from the page and the scallop decorative stitch is absolutely lovely!
To assemble the mini album I cut my cover in half and added a floral paper in the center using the zig zag stitch and the gold thread (this way the cover was a bit wider) Next, I stitched each page slightly off the center of the cover. The mini album was a bit thick but the Stitch Happy Machine had absolutely no problem! No more broken needles or thread!
I had fun decorating all the pages of my mini album, the golden thread added a nice touch. To decorate I used the die cuts that came with the Card Kit and some wood veneers and die cuts from the Take Me Away Collection by Pink Paislee.
I used the decorative stitches to create different backgrounds like the scallop page you see below.
With the Stitch Happy Machine you can easily add felt, fabric and even leather to your projects!
Here are some of the other pages of my mini album.
Tip: Remember to change needle when using the gold thread otherwise the thread might break.
Thank you so much for joining me today! Do you have a Stitch Happy Machine? What are you waiting for? I am sure you are going to love it as much as I do!
Have a great day!
