Sew Happy Together

I'm so excited to share this mini album with everyone. This is a mini spool album kit given to me by Chandi, you can find the kit here on her YouTube Channel: chandiwalsh. The kit is just a base kit. There are no papers or embellishments in the kit. It comes with the mini album by itself, some die cuts and some tags. You can create absolutely anything. The papers that I used were already in my stash, K&Company Celeste. I had some leftover die cuts from that collection as well. I did stick to the sewing theme and titled the mini "Sew Happy Together: Family & Friends". I was able to include pictures of my family cropping together and just sharing some crafty time together. The others pages were left blank so that I may print out pictures of my crafty friends.

I bound the mini with brown seam binding and attached my own charms using the Tim Holtz swivel clasps. Throughout the mini I used I Am Roses flowers that I sprayed with Desert Moon Cactus Gold from Lindy's Stamp Gang. Some buttons and other floral sprays adorned the pages. Chandi was nice enough to gift me awesome sewing themed buttons as well. I truly loved putting this mini together and I hope you enjoyed it as well.

You can watch my YouTube video of this mini here. Thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend!
