MWL DT: Shine Mini Album with Hungarian Stitch

Hi everyone! It's my turn as Made With Love DT to share a little hand stitched mini album today~ I am so excited with this one, I did spend some time on the stitching and it was therapeutic!

"Shine" Mini Album
I intend to use this for my baby niece, and she is a star. Therefore, I named this album "Shine". To construct this album, I have used 2 collections from Simple Stories - Faith Collection & Domestic Bliss Collection. These colors are my current fav to work with!



Making albums are a wheeze with the correct tools. For this album, I have used the Xyron (both the 1.5" and 5" unit) for the background pages, covers and tiny details like the title.



Yes, these are my current must have for album making! This saves around half the time taken to adhere the pages, and makes life easier for the tiny elements like the title. 


The inside pages are constructed using the We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch board! Details like these help to enhance the album! Just 2 punch action and 1 cut - yes it is that simple! 


Another great use of the tab punch! I like to slot some tabbed pages into pockets, so I can remove them easily to add journaling to the back of the tabbed pages.



I love the hungarian stitch, it is one stitch with volume and details; and it is perfect for albums! This time round, I am using the hungarian stitch again, but with variation. The signatures in this album are sewn on with the hungarian stitch. 

All materials used for this project are available at Made With Love. 

Don't forget to also look out for more book binding projects / classes available only with Made With Love. Want to learn how the hungarian stitch is done? I will be running the workshop "You are awesome" in June which features the same hungarian stitch done in the vertical fashion. Do check out the dates in June!

Thanks for dropping by my blog today!
